Powerterm PTS combined solar regulators and power supply systems, supplied in Australia by Omniflex , have been engineered for use in small solar powered applications with integrated standby battery management features.
DIN rail mounting allows these solar regulators to accommodate solar panels up to 140W, which are characterised for sealed lead acid batteries.
By connecting a solar panel, sealed lead acid battery and load, users are provided with an industrial grade solar powered system that is well suited for providing DC power to Teleterm M2 series RTU systems when mains power is not available.
Applications for these solar regulators and power supplies include RTUs, data loggers, remote monitoring and alarm systems.
The Powerterm PTS incorporates an auto-resettable load cut-out that protects the system from over-current faults.
Controlling the charging of batteries to ensure optimum life, PTS systems will disconnect a solar panel automatically when the battery is fully charged to prevent overcharging.
Powerterm PTS solar regulators also feature:
- 12V DC or 24V DC auto-detect
- series regulator design for best efficiency
- solar charging output for system monitoring
- DIN Rail mounting; and
- temperature compensated battery charging for best standby time and battery life.
