VE.Direct communication port
The VE.Direct port can be connected to:
• A computer (VE.Direct to USB interface cable needed)
• Apple and Android smartphones, tablets, MacBook’s and other devices (VE.Direct Bluetooth Smart dongle needed)
• Low battery voltage alarm trip and reset levels
• Low battery voltage cut-off and restart levels
• Dynamic cut-off: load dependent cut-off level
• Output voltage 210 - 245V
• Frequency 50 Hz or 60 Hz
• ECO mode on/off and ECO mode sense level Monitoring:
• In- and output voltage, % load and alarms
The full bridge plus toroidal transformer topology has proven its reliability over many years. The inverters are short circuit proof and protected against overheating, whether due to overload or high ambient temperature. High start-up power Needed to start loads such as power converters for LED lamps, halogen lamps or electric tools. ECO mode When in ECO mode, the inverter will switch to standby when the load decreases below a preset value (min load: 15W). Once in standby the inverter will switch on for a short period (adjustable, default: every 2,5 seconds). If the load exceeds a preset level, the inverter will remain on.
A remote on/off switch can be connected to a two pole connector, or between battery plus and the left hand contact of the two pole connector

This is a Top loading Chest Freezer which has a clever fridge mode so you can use as a solar fridge (without having to do the modification in our guide)
It runs on 230V AC so you need to run from your inverter. Its a super affordable and easy plug and play solution for a solar fridge.
The advantage of using a freezer is the insulation layer is much greater and top loading means that the cold doesn’t fall out every time you open it. They also tend to have a larger compressor so will have to run for less time to get the amount of cold you want.

Power Range: up to 305 W
Cell: 120 x dual-cell Percium Poly, 156 x 78 mm
Dimensions: 1675 × 992 × 35 mm
Weight: 18.5 kg
Wet lead acid battery - generally not suitable for mobile applications. Should not be located in living areas.
A company wide dedication to quality control and continual improvement has earned Crown Battery the highest quality and service rating in the industry. "We put more into our deep cycle batteries so you can get more out of them...
More performance, more productivity with less maintenance. Nobody builds them like Crown, because no one else invests in the heaviest, thickest plates in the industry. Our plates are over 10% thicker than our competitors.
Combine that with our proprietary PROeye and our low maintenance container - features that make battery maintenance predictable and efficient - and you've got a battery that's going to last longer and perform like no other."
Crown out-performs the competition in head to head tests over and over again.
"It must be a matter of perspective. But we aren’t prone to exaggeration, the way some of our competitors are.
If you claim to have batteries that out-perform all others, an independent laboratory should confirm the findings. That’s the way we do it at Crown. Since 1926, that’s all we’ve done. And to us, it really isn’t a matter of claiming to be first in the industrial marketplace; but being the best. Some manufacturers are comfortable making exaggerated claims.
We’re comfortable making battery history… one customer at a time."
"The heaviest, thickest plates in the industry. Thicker plates, heavier lead connections, and the most active lead material per ampere hour of rated capacity. And heavy means more lead, more active material. Which means more power. Longer life. Who would you put your money on? A lightweight battery? Or the heavyweight of the world. Crown."

Antimony Alloy Construction: Low Maintenance Service
New XTRA series - 3rd Generation MPPT
For 12V Solar System: 520W solar panel (150V for max input voltage)
For 24V Solar System: 1040W solar panel (150V for max input voltage)
No Fan for silent operation, great for vans, boats or any live in spaces
With built in LCD advanced display and programming screen (XDS2)
New XTRA series has Lithium battery support (set via PC cable only)
The XTRA tracer models have a current limiting function, you can connect twice the rated power to the controller so if your on a budget you can use a smaller controller with more panels so that you get more power in winter or low light but don't risk overloading the controller in the summer. The output will be limited to the max listed above.
New EPEver (Tracer) series is EPsolar’s third generation of MPPT controller.
XTRA series are advanced maximum power point tracking (MPPT) charge controllers, for off grid photovoltaic systems, with display unit.
In order to maximise the energy harvest from PV arrays and simultaneously minimise the power loss within a wide range of operating conditions, XTRA series apply an advanced smart algorithm which results in up to 30% higher efficient charging, compared to a conventional pulse width modulation (PWM) charge controller. Xtra series controller have limit protection function on charging current &charging power, as well as auto derating power operation at high temperature; the above protection ensure the stability of system even at exceeded rated PV power and over temperature conditions.
Protection class IP32 and isolated RS485 communication port further improve the controller’s reliability under different application requirements. XTRA series controllers incorporate a self-adaptive three-stage charging algorithm based on a digital control circuit, which effectively prolongs the lifespan of battery and significantly improve the system performance. It also has extensive electronic protection for overcharge, over discharge, PV & battery reverse polarity and etc. to ensure the sustainability and durability of the o-grid solar system.
