Morningstar SunKeeper 6 Amp 12 Volt 3 Stage PWM Solar Electric Charge Controller

Morningstar SunKeeper charge controllers can be mounted directly to a solar modules junction box or can be mounted on a vertical or horizontal surface with the included mounting bracket. SunKeepers are 100% waterproof and weatherproof which allows them to be installed indoors or outdoors.

From the Manufacturer

Morningstar's SunKeeper is a three stage pulse width modulation (PWM) solar charge controller that provides a low cost regulated output directly from the solar module to maximize battery life in small solar applications. The SunKeeper is epoxy encapsulated and rated for outdoor use. By mounting directly to the modules junction box and wiring through the junction box knockout, the connection is weather-proof and eleiminates the need for and additional housing for the controller.

Built to withstand the high temperatures behind the solar module, the controller has been designed using extremely efficient power electronics and is rated to 158 degrees fahrenheit.

Notes from the Installation Team
We use Sunkeepers for several applications. Our most popular application is for pop-up tent trailers and pop-up truck campers. These small campers usually get a single 85 watt or a 135 watt solar module installed on the roof. Pairing the SunKeeper with the module makes for a clean, space saving installation on small campers. To date we have not had a Sunkeeper fail and highly recommend them for small installations.

SunKeeper's don't have to be mounted to a solar modules j box. The SunKeeper 6 comes with a mounting bracket that can be fastened to nearly anything.

What you need to Acquire
1 - 1/2" water proof strain relief for the modules output leads
1 Automotive type ATC fuse link and fuse sized to your solar module
Length of two strand wire to run from solar module output to storage battery
