The Elmar Solar 3A 2019 MPPT is designed with solar car racing teams competing in the World Solar Challenge in mind. Designed to be used specifically with Gallium Arsenide high performance arrays it is the most efficient MPPTs on the market while remaining extremely lightweight. Can also be used with silicon arrays as long as the maximum current stays below 3A.
Part of a family of MPPTs developed through years of competition and race tested in Solar Car events around the world.
Fully integrated into Profinity Software management solutions developed and used by experienced solar car racers.
Independently tested by Yokogawa to show MPPT optimizes the panel’s output voltage to maximize the amount of power generated by the solar panel array. Download report here.
