Victron SmartSolar MPPT 150/45 Bluetooth Solar Charge Controller: Optimize Your Solar Energy Harvesting

Maximize Solar Efficiency with Bluetooth-Enabled SmartSolar Technology

Discover the cutting-edge Victron SmartSolar MPPT 150/45 (12/24/48V-45A) Solar Charge Controller, designed to significantly enhance your solar panel's energy conversion. With Bluetooth Smart technology built-in, this advanced controller offers a seamless, wireless solution to configure, monitor, update, and synchronize your SmartSolar Charge Controllers effortlessly.

VE.Direct Connection: Wired Data Integration

For those who prefer a direct connection, the VE.Direct port allows for a reliable wired data connection to a Color Control GX, other GX devices, PCs, or compatible devices, ensuring your solar system's performance data is always at your fingertips.

Ultrafast MPPT for Superior Energy Harvest

Experience up to 30% more energy harvest with our ultrafast Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) technology, especially under rapidly changing light conditions. Unlike PWM charge controllers, our MPPT technology adapts quickly, ensuring maximum efficiency and performance from your solar array.

Advanced MPPT for Partial Shading Conditions

The Victron SmartSolar controller excels in environments with partial shading. Traditional MPPTs may settle for less efficient power points; our SmartSolar controller utilizes an innovative algorithm to identify and lock onto the optimal power point, ensuring maximum energy harvest even in challenging conditions.

Exceptional Conversion Efficiency Without the Need for Cooling Fans

Achieve outstanding conversion efficiency exceeding 98%, with the full output current available up to 40°C (104°F) without the need for cooling fans. This not only enhances performance but also ensures silent operation.

Customizable and Flexible Charging Algorithms

Tailor your charging strategy with our fully programmable charge algorithm (accessible via our software page) or select from eight pre-programmed algorithms via a rotary switch. Adapt your solar charging to meet specific battery requirements, optimizing for longevity and performance.

Comprehensive Electronic Protection

Our SmartSolar controller comes equipped with extensive electronic protections, including over-temperature protection, power derating, PV short circuit, PV reverse polarity, and PV reverse current protections, safeguarding your investment.

Temperature-Compensated Charging

An internal temperature sensor adjusts charging voltages for temperature, ensuring optimal charge regardless of environmental conditions. For enhanced accuracy, connect a Smart Battery Sense or a BMV-712 Smart Battery Monitor (purchased separately) via Bluetooth to relay precise battery voltage and temperature readings.
