WS-12-250-DC to the rescue at a solar site!

Mon Jun 06, 2016 11:47 am

I have a site that has been on solar for almost (2) years. During the summer the site was working well however in the winter during several days of overcast the voltage would drop <23V and would cause site outages. This site is almost two hours from my office so it costs us a lot to visit. Due to the space onsite adding additional panels would require us to clear trees not on the property which was not an option.

Original Configuration:

- Tycon 285 watt panel configuration
- Tycon Charge controller
- Tycon TPDIN-Monitor-WEB
- Ubiquiti ER-R6
- (4) 110AH AGM batteries
- ( 3) Rocket M series radios

New configuration

Tycon 285 watt panel configuration
- Tycon Charge controller
- WS-12-250-DC
- Ubiquiti ER-X
- (4) 110AH AGM batteries
- ( 3) Rocket M series radios

This site has been up over 6 months since the swap over without issue. I was able to remove the TPDIN which saved me a few watts as well and reduces the equipment to maintain and keep in stock. In a few weeks once the WS-8-150-DC's ship I will be ordering a few to swap out on my solar sites as they all have <6 radios.

I love it. These DC switches are awful hard to beat.

Agreed these things are awesome and give you flexibility on power. I am building a new enclosure for a large customer on their roller coaster. I acquired this site and it has very dirty power topside where the router / etc is located now. I ran fiber down the coaster last week and will be converting the site over either tonight or Tuesday night. I will post story
