NEW: MpicoSys revolutionizes solar power charging management – enabling low power year round 24/7 operation on batteries.

Meet MpicoSys Low power Solar Charge Controller, optimized for winter.


Why develop a low power Solar Charge Controller when there are so many ?
One of the customers in the North of Europe experienced – despite using low power products from MpicoSys – a need for battery changes in winter. Research showed that next to little sunlight the battery was drained due to the power used by the charger. The charger appeared to use more power than generated by the PV – standard power consumption appeared to be 10mA – needed day and night, 24/7! Next to the fact that the charger used was optimized for summer. The efficiency of a standard charger is 80-90% in bright sunlight, 10-30% in low light conditions.
Hence the need for a low power solar charger, optimized for winter for digital (remote) bus stops, or any other passenger information..
