Solar Home Systems
A solar home system consists of a steca solar charge controller, one or more solar modules, a battery and the connected loads.
The solar charge controller is connected directly to the battery using as short a cable as possible, and fixed to the wall near to the battery, so that it can be effectively cooled by the passing air flow.
In principle, the battery is always connected to the charge controller first. Then the solar module field is connected to the solar module input of the charge controller. Only direct current loads are used in solar home systems. They are connected directly to the load output of the charge controller. This means the steca solar charge controllers always show the exact charge status of the battery, and thus ensure optimal battery maintenance in all situations. VArious steca energy-saving lights, Steca solar cooling units, DC to DC converters and other appliances can be used.
Furthermore, steca charge controllers are equipped with an intelligent battery monitoring system. The most effective charging method is selected according to the requirements of the batteries.
