- The Best Overall Value – Combination of performance, features and competitive price results in the best controller value on the market.
- Extremely High Reliability – Failure rates of less than 2 per 1,000 units.
- Outstanding Battery Charging – PWM charging can double the life of the battery and recover capacity in a sulfated battery. Series design (not shunt) reduces heating and stress on the electronic components.
- Highest Quality – Manufactured in a fully automated world-class ISO 9001 factory. Quality control using the latest computerized test equipment.
- Environmental Protection – Rated for ambient temperatures of -40 C to +60 C. Epoxy encapsulated to protect boards from corrosion.
- Superior Lightning Protection – Use of large 1500W transient voltage suppressors provides faster response to transients and do not degrade over time.
- No Need to Derate – Designed with a 25% safety margin, controllers may be used up to their full “nameplate” ratings.
- Expected 15 Year Life – Controllers carry a full 5-year warranty, with an expected operating life of 15 years or more. SHS™ controllers and our Sure Sine inverter carry a two-year warranty.
- Easy to Use – Well-written manuals, good technical support by phone or internet, large clearly-marked wire terminals, reverse polarity protected and good LED indicators
