The Benbro PVLink PnP is an 8 x 25 Amp array stage commercial solar charge regulator which is suitable for 48V hybrid systems. It can also control an additional 8 x 25 Amp slave and can support Ethernet Connectivity
The PVLink PnP RMD-200 consists of
- The RMD-200 Sub Rack (incl. PSU Card & I/O Card)
- ASR-25 Array Stage Regulators (up to 8)
- ASR Controller
- Communications and Logging option
The RMD-200 sub-rack is a 19” rack mountable chassis of which the top 3RU contains the ASR Controller, the power supply, Data logging card slots and ASR-25 array stage regulators. The lower 6RU (RMD-200) provides cable termination points for power via buss bars, terminals and load circuit breakers. The I/O board, as well as optional communications card are also housed in the lower unit.
Under normal operation, the ASR-25 regulators will be slave-switched by the ASR Controller in sequence to regulate charge through the solar array stages into the battery bank(s).
The RMD-200 utilises battery voltage sensing to control the charge regime, as recommended by battery manufacturer for float, boost and equalisation charging. Battery voltage is measured using a dedicated battery sense cable pair.
