Plasmatronics Regulator - PL20 with LCD Display - 20 Amp
Regulator for 12V, 24V & 48V Battery Systems
20A Charge - 20A Load
The Plasmatronics PL 20 Regulators are able to log all incoming and outgoing currents to and from your battery bank.
If you have large DC loads or inverters you will need a PLS shunt interface and an external shunt in order for the regulator to monitor them.
The shunt interface and shunt is also recommended if you sometimes charge your battery with a generator.
Fully adjustable settings.
The PL series of charge controllers give you the freedom to operate your solar electric system the way you want to. They offer complete control over the charge cycle, plus an unprecedented amount of useful information about current and past performance.
PL regulators help to protect the system with a built in low battery disconnect switch. In addition, the versatile event controller can switch power on or off according to criteria set by the user. This allows the PL to do extra tasks such as switching a light on at night or keeping a water tank full by operating a pump when needed.
The user can select either Pulse Width Modulation or slow speed switching. Regulation can be done in both series and shunt modes. Other features include backup generator control and charging a second battery.
Display shows battery voltage, charge current, ampere hours in and out of battery, load being drawn from the battery and which part of the charge cycle the battery is in.
Easy to maintain
Information is available for the past 30 days - so even if the user doesn't remember what happened, the regulator will.
With the optional PLI interface and PLcom software, the user can access the regulator from a computer. Data can be read or settings adjusted. This can be done remotely using a modem.
It may be the only regulator you will ever need to stock. Its capacity to handle 12, 24 and 48V systems and allow complete control of the regulation cycle mean you can use it almost anywhere.
All settings are adjustable and are stored in a non volatile memory
User friendly alphanumeric LCD gives you words to explain the numbers.
Shows daily charge and discharge amp hours.
Three Step Regulation:
Boost, Absorption and Float modes with an optional periodic Equalisation mode.. Can switch in series, shunt or series + shunt modes.
Records charge and load amp hours, max and min battery voltages and state of charge for the last 30 days. Remembers how much was really collected and used.
A sophisticated generator controller is included with four different modes of control available and a quiet time option.
A versatile event controller allows the load to be turned on or off under a user selected set of conditions. Can be used for lighting, pumping , frost control etc.
There is an adjustable low or high battery voltage alarm.
When the main battery is full, use the waste energy to charge an auxiliary battery. The PL supplies a signal to switch a relay to the second battery.
A computer can communicate with the PL using the PLI RS232 interface. Data can be downloaded and settings adjusted from far away.
Protected against short circuit, reverse flow, lightning. Low battery load disconnect function built in. Current limit for over heat or over current. Conformal coating applied to protect against corrosion.
Two external shunts can be connected using the DC isolated PLS2 bi-directional shunt adaptor.
