Understanding the mighty 80-600 Schneider Solar Charge Controller

The Schneider 80-600 is one of the favoured charge controllers of the industry because of its upper voltage window of 550V allowing capacities of 2,560 W at 24V or 4,800 W at 48V with long single or dual strings.

This reduces the number of DC cables, reduces cable size and voltage drop issues, eliminates the need for string fuse protection, and reduces the number of DC breakers for easier wiring and faster installation.

Greenwood Solutions have utilised two 80-600’s in the install shown here for DC-coupling 10kW of solar with an additional 5kW via AC-coupling.
