A solar charger gathers energy from your solar panels, and stores it in your batteries. Using the latest, fastest technology, SmartSolar maximises this energy-harvest, driving it intelligently to achieve full charge in the shortest possible time. The Victron Smartsolar MPPT 150/70tr Regulator maintains battery health, extending its life.

- Bluetooth Smart Built-In: The wireless solution to set-up, monitor, update and synchronise SmartSolar Charge Controllers.
- Ultra-Fast Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT): Especially in case of a clouded sky, when light intensity is changing continuously, an ultra-fast MPPT controller will improve energy harvest by up to 30% compared to PWM charge controllers and by up to 10% compared to slower MPPT controllers.
- Advanced Maximum Power Point Detection in Case of Partial Shading Conditions: If partial shading occurs, two or more maximum power points (MPP) may be present on the power-voltage curve. Conventional MPPTs tend to lock to a local MPP, which may not be the optimum MPP. The innovative SmartSolar algorithm will always maximize energy harvest by locking to the optimum MPP.
- Outstanding Conversion Efficiency: No cooling fan. Maximum efficiency exceeds 98%.
- Flexible Charge Algorithm: Fully programmable charge algorithm (see the software page on our website), and eight preprogrammed algorithms, selectable with a rotary switch (see manual for details).
- Extensive Electronic Protection: Over-temperature protection and power derating when temperature is high. PV short circuit and PV reverse polarity protection. PV reverse current protection.
- Internal Temperature Sensor: Compensates absorption and float charge voltage for temperature.
- VE.Direct: For a wired data connection to a Color Control GX, other GX products, PC or other devices
- Remote On-Off: To connect for example to a VE.BUS BMS.
- Programmable Relay: Can be programmed to trip on an alarm, or other events.
- Optional - External Battery Voltage and Temperature Sensing Via Bluetooth: A Smart Battery Sense or a BMV-712 Smart Battery Monitor can be used to communicate battery voltage and temperature to one or more SmartSolar Charge Controllers.
- Optional - SmartSolar Pluggable LCD Display: Simply remove the rubber seal that protects the plug on the front of the controller, and plug-in the display.
