Iian tech Co., Ltd Iian Tech (Apollo Solar) has established technical superiority--
Here is how we do it -----
Apollo Solar Began with Work for NASA (the US Space Agency)
NASA letter commending the work done by Apollo Solar
Apollo Solar designed and built a PV Battery Charger for NASA where reliability is mission critical.
The Apollo Solar T80 Turbocharger TM is designed for tough duty
The only charge controller approved by the US Army
for desert applications Apollo Solar Charge controllers are chosen where reliability is critical.
Apollo Solar T80-- Only Charge Controller to Pass Rigorous US Army Testing The Apollo T80 is an integral component in the USA Army Deployable renewable Energy power Stations, D-REPS for short) to be deployed on military bases and forward action Missions throughout the world. The Apollo T80 is the only system complete performance, environmental, and physical * U.S. Army D-REPS at Ft. Irwin, CA Photo Courtesy Energy Masters

Complete Telecom PV Battery Charge Management System in One Enclosure
* Designed for optimum reliability in tough environments. * IP66 enclosure keeps bugs, sand, water and corrosion out
Apollo Solar Has Established Technical Superiority * Best Energy Harvest using patented MPPT (Fewer PV modules for the same output)
* Lower internal temperature for longer life * Integrated Battery State-of-Charge meter * Isolated data port for positive ground systems * Automatic current reduction and continued operation rather than shunt-down at temperatures above 45℃
MPPT vs PWM Energy harvest * MPPT is based on a DC to DC Converter which converts all the PV voltage into useful current into the battery. * Our MPPT algorithm finds and tracks the peak product of PV voltage and current as it changes with temoerature and light. * PWM based charges do not have DC to DC converters so must throw away any power when above the battery voltage. MPPT Current (in red) is greater all day than the PWM current (in green).
Energy Monitor is Built-In * Essential battery Energy Meter for all Stand-Alone / Off- Grid systems * Complete Display of PV system performance * * * *
The only accurate method to measure the battery State of Charge read the PV Array voltage and current Check the load current and the hours left in the battery See instantaneous status and 90 day history
* Easy to read " Gas Gauge " Bar Graph of battery energy showing SOC (State-of-charge) * Exclusive Wireless (or Wired) Remote display of All Data.
Full Power rating to 45℃ (113℉) Apollo Solar T80 can take the heat * T80 is 80Amps at 45℃ (113℉) * 60% more current at 35℃ (95℉) * >Twice the current at 50℃ (112℉) * Disclaimer: The de-rating of the competitor's unit above 25℃ is their own estimate of 1℃/Amp.
Complete Stacking Features * Stack up to 16 T80s in parallel for 1280 Amps * Easy nwtwork Option Card & CAT5 daisy chainNo external hubs required * Program all parallel TurboChargers TM from one master * All TurboChargers TM work as one unit with many MPPT inputs * Complete energy harvest reporting from all units
Precision Charging for Longer Battery Life * Direct "4-wire" reading of battery terminal voltage No errors from unknown cable and connector resistances. No current in sense wires.
* high resolution A to D converter on critical inputs A Accurate t battery b tt sett points i t th thatt stay where tou set them.
Other products --> Without 4-wire sensing. Actual battery voltage can be very different from your settings.
Apollo TurboChargers with 4-wire sensing
Setting up the T80 - Just 3 Steps " As easy as A-B-C" * Step A - T80 reads your battery voltage. * Step B - Enter battery type & size. T80 sets the charging parameters. Tweak them if you like. * Step C - set Time & date, and Go. ( When a Remote Display is connected, it automatically sets the date and time from its internal real-time clock.)
Remote Displays Wireless Remote Display * RF Network Option Card * Internal Battery in Display * Range inside and outside
