Why The Rhino-20 Charge Controller?
Three Stage Automatic Charging
The Rhino-20 is one of the few 20 amp chargers to feature Fast, Absorption and Float. The Rhino-20 also switches from Fast charge to Float charge when batteries are full. Float charge continuously monitors battery to maintain a fully charged state.

LVD Warning
The Rhino's LVD warning output provides advanced notice
of an impending low voltage disconnect event, allowing
your equipment to shut down in a safe manner.

LVD Reset
The Rhino's LVD reset button allows you to override the
LVD feature without resorting to tricks required by other
similar charge controllers.

Convenient
Heavy-duty spring loaded cage clamp terminals allow for
quick and easy installation without sacrificing reliability.
Easily replaceable automotive style fuses protect both the
battery and load terminals.

Adaptable
The Rhino-20 features an external temperature sensor,
mountable directly to your battery for increased accuracy.
Output voltage automatically adjusts to compensate for
the temperature of the battery.

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
