Page 5: About This Guide About This Purpose The purpose of this procedures for installing, operating, maintaining, and troubleshooting the Scope This Guide setup information, procedures for installing the inverter, as well as information about operating and troubleshooting the unit. It does not provide details about particular brands of batteries. Be sure to read, understand, and save these safety instructions. Have someone assist you with the installation or be close enough to come to your aid when working with batteries.

Observe proper precautions when working with or around batteries. Page 20 xviii See: page 2 page 3 page 7 page If several functions are required in a system, a dedicated controller must be used for each function.

When the battery voltage reaches the bulk voltage setting, the controller activates the next stage absorption. Absorption Stage During this stage, the voltage of the battery is held at the bulk voltage setting until an internal timer has accumulated one hour. With the BTS installed, the or decrease the battery charging voltage depending on the temperature of the battery to optimize the charge to the battery and maintain optimal performance of the battery.

Page Controller Functions 60 amps of continuous photovoltaic PV array current at 12 or 24 volts C60 or C35 models , or , or volts DC C40 model for charging batteries. This rating includes the NEC required derating.

In the event of a shutdown, the controller automatically resets itself after 10 minutes if overcurrent condition is no longer present. This load must be able to absorb more power than the charging source is able to produce at its peak output, or the DC voltage will become unregulated. The dump load must be available for the diversion of power at all times.

Page Load Controller Introduction Important: may be necessary to install diodes to prevent night-time back-feed.

If in doubt, contact or consult with your local renewable energy expert. Important: to prevent backfeed. Problems may arise from operating with a load that is too small or too large. Page Low Voltage Disconnect or automatic reconnect when the controller. Do not use this decal if using the controller Low Voltage Disconnect When configured as a load controller, the will disconnect the load from the batteries when it reaches the LVD setting.

There will be a 6-minute delay after the voltage drops below the Low Voltage Disconnect LVD setting before the controller actually disconnects the load. See: page 14 page 16 page Page Pre-Installation Installation Pre-Installation The instructions that follow are applicable to the typical installation.

For special applications, consult a qualified electrician or your Xantrex Certified Dealer. Installation procedures will vary according to your specific application. Important: standards. Installations of this equipment should only be performed by skilled personnel such as qualified electricians and Certified Renewable Energy RE System Installers.

Page Figure C-Series Dimensions And Knockout Locations It is also recommended to use bushings or conduits to protect the wiring from damage from rough edges in the knockout holes. Avoid mounting it in direct sunlight to prevent heating of the enclosure. The enclosure should be mounted vertically on a wall. In outdoor installations, the installed in a rainproof enclosure to eliminate exposure to rain, mist or water-spray.

Batteries can vent hydrogen-sulfide gas, which is corrosive to electronic equipment. Batteries also generate hydrogen and oxygen gas that can explode when exposed to a spark. Page Configuring The C-Series Controller Installation Configuring the Before making any wiring connections to the controller, it must be configured for the desired mode of operation.

The following sections describe the how to configure the unit for the desired application and function. Page Operating Mode Jumper To set the voltage, place the jumper over the two pins adjacent to the legend for the voltage of your system: 12, 24, Factory setting is 12 volts for the C35, C40, and C C40 Models C35 and C The knobs are removable to reduce the likelihood of accidental mis-adjustment if bumped.

Calibrated scales, shown as scale marks, are provided to allow setting of the control without requiring the use of a digital voltmeter. However, when the controller scale calibration is altered from what is printed on the circuit board. Use the Charge Control scale for setting this value. Figure on page 23 The unit will continue diverting excess current to the diversion load until the source voltage falls to or below the BULK setting.

Test points are provided at the mid-range on the scales for this purpose. The potentiometers are equipped with removable knobs to prevent accidental mis-adjustments. Point the BULK potentiometer to the mid-range position. Adjust the potentiometer until the DVM displays 1. Consult your battery supplier for details on equalize-charging for the battery type in your system.

C-Series the equalization charging process. Page Manual Equalization Manual Equalization Manual equalization of the battery can be enabled by pressing the Reset Switch on the right side of the status LED indicator begins to alternate between red and green. This could take about 10 seconds. The status LED will indicate that the equalization process is occurring. The equalization process will continue until the voltage has been held above the bulk setting for a cumulative period of two hours.

Page Terminating The Equalization Process Terminating the Equalization Process To stop the equalization process, press the reset switch on the right side of the unit until the status LED stops alternating between red and green. If the equalization process was shorter than one hour, the controller will continue with a bulk charge cycle and then hold the battery at the bulk setting for one hour the absorption stage before returning to the float setting.

The temperature compensated charging voltage is normally based on a Lead — Acid types of battery. If using Alkaline-type batteries, the R46 resistor on the circuit board inside the controller will have been clipped as shown in on page compensation charging voltage will be based on Manual Battery Temperature Compensation If no Battery Temperature Sensor BTS is installed and the batteries will be operating in very hot or very cold conditions, adjust the bulk and float settings to allow for the battery temperature.

Page Grounding Grounding C-Series controller negative ground and ungrounded electrical systems. Page Wiring Installation Wiring Important: standards. For a list of Xantrex Certified RE dealers, please visit our website at www. Page Terminal Torque Requirements Terminal Torque Requirements Once the wires have been installed, torque the terminals as follows.

Be careful not to overtighten. Page Over-Current Protection controller device on the input line of the the PV array and the controller. If the battery, is over 15 feet away from the controller, or if it is routed next to other wiring or sources of power, additional surge protection devices are recommended.

Put the surge protection device for this scenario on the battery input line between the battery and the controller. Refer to To use a larger size wire, use a splicer block terminal block intended for this purpose. Before connecting the disconnect the array to prevent any current from being generated. To connect the 1. Connect your DC current source PV, wind, hydro, etc.

Connect a cable from the controller to a battery disconnect. Connect the positive battery cable to the battery disconnect. Page Installing Optional Accessories Installation Installing Optional Accessories The following sections describe how to install the optional accessories available for the Controller. The display will connect to the controller at the RJ port on the lower left corner of the circuit board.

Install the BTS on the side of the battery below the electrolyte level. It is best to place the sensor between batteries and place the batteries in an insulated box to reduce the influence of the ambient temperature outside the battery enclosure. Align faceplate with front of chassis so that screw holes in the corners line up. Insert the phillips screws into the screw holes and tighten.

See: page 54 page Page Blinking Green For example, if the system battery voltage is 24 volts and the internal Bulk voltage setting is set for 28 volts, you can estimate how much below the Bulk setting the batteries are by subtracting the number in setting. With the LED indicating three blinks, the battery voltage is approximately 27 volts 28 volts Bulk setting minus 1. Damage to batteries can occur. It will automatically stop the equalization process after accumulating two hours of operation at a voltage above the BULK setting.

Page Low-Voltage Disconnect Condition Operation Fast Blinking Orange When the over-current or over-temperature protection system has caused the controller to shutdown, the status LED will be orange and will blink fast about once a second.

Page Reset Switch Important: mode; never in Charge or Diversion mode unless it is reversed upon reinstallation. Reset Switch Use the Reset Switch on the side of the chassis for the following conditions.
