Dual input, dual output battery charge controller
Tycon Power Systems released its dual input/dual output battery charge controllers for backup power and remote power applications.
The SCPOE series can charge lead acid batteries from solar panel input and/or Power Over Ethernet (POE) input. The 5A solar panel input takes priority so when the sun is shining grid power is not used. There are two outputs; The 24W Power Over Ethernet (POE) output utilizes a high efficiency DCDC converter to provide 12V, 18V, 24V, or 48VDC POE and the secondary wire terminal output on the back is essentially the battery voltage.
The SCPOE series offers full protections for over-charge, over-discharge, short circuit, over-voltage, and over-current. Low self consumption of <0.5W suits them for remote power applications. The units are rated for operation from -30°C to 60°C, suitable for year round outdoor operation in a weatherproof enclosure.
Multiple configurations are available for 12V or 24V battery systems with various POE output voltages.Tycon Power Systems, http://tyconpower.com
