The Power Blending Controller is a PicoCell™ accessory that seamlessly blends energy between solar array and the power grid. It is ideally suited for applications that require 24/7 or some night time operation, particularly in areas with high energy costs. The combination of the PicoCell controller and the optional Power Blending Controller represents a cost effective way to intelligently supplement solar power with controllable night time operation without the expense of adding batteries.
One easy to install, universal controller can power any motor, pump, compressor or other Inductive load regardless of whether it is single or three phase AC, 50 or 60Hz, 120 or 230Vac. Designed to handle remote off-grid installations, the all aluminum chassis is IP66 rated for harsh outdoor environments and can operate in high temperatures, humidity and corrosive environments. One small device now integrates the functions of an inverter, VFD, MPPT controller, phase initiator and voltage boost with automatic control.
Run any installed or new AC pump with free solar power. One universal controller powers any AC pump up to 2HP, whether it is single or three phase, 50 or 60Hz, 120 or 230Vac. Variable frequency drive function allows pumps to operate during low levels of sun, and the soft start feature allows for long pump life. AC pumps offer similar head and flow vs. DC pumps at 5-10x lower cost.
