Morningstar Sunkeeper 12 Solar Charge Regulator
The Morningstar SunKeeper solar regulator provides a low cost regulated output directly from the solar module to maximize battery life in small solar power applications.
The SunKeeper is epoxy encapsulated and rated for outdoor use.
It is easily connected directly to the solar panel’s junction box using the junction box knockout, which means the connection is completely weather-proof. This also eliminates the need for an additional housing for the controller.
The SunKeeper is available in a 6 amp or 12 amp version (both at 12 volts DC). To withstand the high temperatures from the solar panel, the controller has been designed using extremely efficient power electronics and is rated to 70°C.
The SunKeeper is also certified for use in Class 1, Division 2 hazardous locations, making it an ideal controller for solar powered oil and gas applications.
