The Kid Charge Controller is the most versatile Charge Controller of its class on the market today. The only one made right here in the USA.
BATTERIES - The Kid can charge 12, 24, 36 or 48 volt battery banks. It supports charging traditional flooded, AGM or Gel batteries and newer technologies such as Lithium and Calcium SMF.
AUTO GENSTART (AGS) - The Kid is available with a 2-wire Smart AGS. The Kid Smart AGS will start a generator and then monitor the batteries to ensure proper charging. If the AGS fails to charge, the generator will be turned off saving fuel. AGS is user adjustable.
LOAD CIRCUIT - A unique feature of the Kid is the load circuit. This versatile feature can be used for many purposes including running well pumps, electric fences, or billboard lights in remote areas.
LOAD DUMPING - The Kid has a mode that allows excess energy coming in from the PV array to be diverted to run hot water heaters or other electrical loads. This feature ensures you get the most out of your Kid during times of peak energy production.
CUSTOMIZABLE LIGHTING CONTROLLER- The Kid sports a highly customizable lighting controller. It can be set to turn on automatically at dusk, off at a specified time, and then back on at another preset time and off automatically at dawn. This is called Dusk Plus and Dawn Minus. Using Dusk Plus and Dawn Minus has the distinct advantage of saving battery power. This setting is great for accent lighting in residential areas or for running grow lights in greenhouses.
LCD & LED MONITORING - All parameters of your Renewable Energy System can be monitored right from the LCD display. LEDs indicate if your batteries have been fully charged in the last 2 weeks, numerical read outs show PV input and battery voltage, as well as state of charge.
The KID’s HyperVOC feature allows up to 162VOC. (The KID will not be harmed by voltages between 150 and 162VDC (this is the HyperVOC range). The KID will remain in standby until the voltage is 150v or below.
A brighter future. Off the grid. Iron Edison battery systems can be used for 12, 24 and 48 volt applications. We can also help you optimize battery capacity to take better advantage of the solar, wind and other hardware you may already have in place.
