Blue Sky Energy Solar Boost 2512iX-HV 12 Volt 25 Amp Solar Electric Charge Controller with Wall Mount Box

 

The 2512iX-HV replaced the 2512iX. All the same great features as before plus the ability to controll high voltage 60 cell solar panels.The 2512iX-HV is an excellent choice for RV solar electric systems under 340 watts at 20 amps or less. If all options are selected this combo kit contains all the major components to get your started with you installation.

From the Manufacturer

Patented Maximum Power Point Tracking technology allows Solar Boost 2512iX-HV to increase charge current up to 30% or more compared to conventional charge controllers. The new higher input voltage capability of the HV version product now allows the use of higher voltage lower cost 60 cell PV modules to charge a 12 volt battery. Don’t waste your money by throwing PV power away! Get the power you paid for with a Solar Boost charge controller.

Additional features provided in the Solar Boost 2512iX-HV version include automatic equalization, battery temperature sensor input, full IPN network compatibility, and an auxiliary
output. The auxiliary output can serve as a 25 amp load controller, 25 amp lighting controller , or as a 2 amp auxiliary battery charger. The auxiliary battery charge feature is ideal for charging a separate battery such as the engine battery in an RV.

Blue Sky Energy’s advanced Integrated Power NetTM, or IPN Network, allows multiple charge controllers to communicate with each other and coordinate their activities to charge the battery as a single coordinate charging machine. The IPN network also allows networked controllers to share an optional battery temperature sensor, UCM and remote display. Complete IPN network functionality is provided within the charge controller and no additional hardware or software is required.

Product Features

  • 25 amp output 12 volt nominal rating supports a wide range of applications
  • Automatic or manual battery equalization to periodically condition flooded lead acid batteries
  • Auxiliary output provides 25 amp load control or 2 amp auxiliary battery charging
  • Battery temperature sensor input
  • 3 Stage charge control with filtered pulse width modulation (PWM) output improves battery performance and life while minimizing battery maintenance
  • 2 Amp auxiliary battery charge circuit for charging RV engine starting battery
  • Clear anodized faceplate, galvanized mounting box and conformal coated electronics resist corrosion
  • Full 5 year limited warranty
  • Dimensions: 5.3" L  x 5.3" H x 2.75" W
  • Weight: 1.3 lbs

Available Optiions
IPN Remote Display
The IPN-Remote display provides basic monitoring for 2512iX-HV charge controller. A bright crisp low power LED display is used to provide excellent readability in any lighting. The Charge Status indicator LED light displays the present charge control system status, such as bulk charging, acceptance charging or float charging. The versatile IPN-Remote shows battery voltage as measured by the charge control system. When the battery is being charged the display toggles between battery voltage and charge controller solar (PV) output current.
The IPN Remote Display is a little larger than a credit card. An excellnt choice for those who do not need full system information.

IPN-PRO with Shunt Remote Display
The IPN-ProRemote combines full-featured charge controller monitoring and battery system monitoring into a single user friendly remote display. A bright crisp backlit LCD display with plain English language text and three simple front panel keys is extremely easy to use.

With the IPN-ProRemote you no longer have to guess how much battery capacity remains. A high accuracy calculation of remaining battery capacity compensates for a variety of factors including charge/discharge current, battery size, type, temperature and how the battery was brought back to full charge. It even learns from past battery behavior to continuously improve accuracy!

The IPN-ProRemote also monitors and controls BlueSky Energy’s IPN based charge controllers. It can monitor both the combined total and individual status of up to eight IPN charge controllers on a single IPN network. Depending on the particular charge controller model, certain additional parameters or settings can be accessed or modified with the IPN-ProRemote.

By combining an advanced battery system monitor and charge controller display into a single unit, the IPN-Pro Remote eliminates the need for a separate battery monitor. It also simplifies installation and eliminates the headaches of trying to setup and synchronize separate charge controller and battery monitor systems.

Remote Temperature Sensor (RTS)
The battery temperature sensor allows the charge controller to continuously adjust charge voltage based on actual battery temperature. Temperature compensation of charge voltage assures that the battery receives the proper charge voltage as battery temperature changes during normal operation. Applying the proper charge voltage is critical for achieving optimum battery performance and longevity. The ideal charge voltage required by batteries changes with battery temperature.

Notes for the Installation Team

The Blue Sky 2512iX-HV is a fantasic MPPT 3 stage pulse width modulation solar controller for small systems of 340 watt or less. The controller has a maximum closed circuit solar amp input of 20 amps with the ability to boost that 20 amps to 25 amps. That's like getting a free 65 watt solar module!

With all options our kit includes the 2512iX-HV controller, IPN remote display or IPN-PRO remote display, battery temp sensor and a galvanized wall mount box. 

Here's how I envision installation of the 2512iX-HV kit. Since the 2512iX-HV is 2.75" thick and most wall mounting locations allow a max of 2" this will limit mounting options in the living area, and since the 2512iX-HV only displays the batteries state of charge via blinking LED, we'll install the 2512iX in the under-belly of the RV with the wall mounting box. The wall mounting box has knockouts in the top and bottom for solar in, battery out, temp sensor in, remote display RJ11 cable, and twisted pair cable if the IPN-PRO remote is used.

The attractive IPN Remote is only a little bigger than a credit card and displays battery voltage, output current (amps) and also displays the batteries state of charge via blinking LED. We'll run the IPN/IPN-PRO remote cables from the 2512iX-HV and install the IPN/IPN-PEO remote in the living area.

Installation of the 2512iX-HV is relatively easy if you read the manual. The factory default settings of the 2512IX-HV are suitable for most installations, but are user configurable via DIP switches or via the IPN-PRO remote. The wiring terminal block accepts up to 8 gauge wire, but it's much easier to wire with10 gauge AWG wire. The 2512iX-HV also inculdes a 2 amp second battery bank charge circuit. A nice feature to wire up to the engine starting battery.

Most pictures of the 2512iX-HV face plate make the controller look white, but the face plate is brushed silver looking similar to stainless steel.

What you need to Acquire
1 - Automotive type ATC fuse link and 30 amp fuse or circuit breaker per solar panel
3 to 4 1/2" strain reliefs for the wall mount box
