Plasmatronics design SMART regulators, solar regulators, external shunt adaptors, current shunts, alarm units, ethernet interfaces, shielded cables and much more. Charge regulators are electronic switches designed to know when a battery is full, then disconnect the panel or divert energy away from the battery to stop it charging. The goal of Plasmatronics products is to take reliable and intelligent care of a battery using a small microcontroller integrated circuit to gather important information about the state of the battery, interpret the data, and subsequently decide how to proceed. Below we take a look at a sample of popular Plasmatronics devices.
Plasmatronics PL40 solar regulator
The 130mm x 124mm x 50mm PL40 model has a maximum charge current of 40A, maximum load current of 7A, and supply current of 13mA. Its key features include: adjustable settings stored in non-volatile memory; user-friendly LCD display; energy metering; boost, absorption and float modes forming 3-step regulation; sophisticated generator controller; versatile event controller; alarm; second battery; remote control; short circuit, lightning and reverse flow protection; and two external shunts. This impressive device is able to regulate solar and a wind turbine simultaneously.
Plasmatronics PLS2 external shunt adaptor
The PLS2 bi-directional shunt adaptor allows PL series solar charge controllers to measure charge or load currents that do not run through the controller. The devices measures the current in a current shunt, but most importantly it converts that measurement into digital form and sends it to the PL controller.
Plasmatronics current shunt 75mV 200A
Alongside the external shunt adaptor, this unit allows PL Series regulators to monitor large loads like inverters and charging sources. For example, the set-up might monitor battery chargers if they have been rated too high for direct connection to the regulator.
