• 98% peak efficiency and high efficiency across low, medium, and high power levels
• Data logging - detailed logging of power and load data confirms performance and helps isolate
system inconsistencies
• Low noise design - meets FCC Class B specifications
• Continuous charging and no damage from PV array oversizing
• Data Logging - up to 200 days of detailed logging of power and load data confirms
performance and helps isolate system inconsistencies
• High Strength / Polycarbonate Case and extruded aluminum heatsink without fans or moving
parts
• Optional wire box to cover and prevent the exposure of conduit and wire connections
• Allows multiple 60-cell modules in series on a 12V or 24V battery system
• MODBUS Communications - Solar Industry Standard MODBUS communications protocol
allows for easy programming, control, remote data access and charge synchronization with
other system hardware
• Self Diagnostics - The ProStar MPPT continuously monitors and reports any internal hardware
issues or system problems through its status LED's, optional display or communication port

IMO Precision Controls - Keeping Solar Safe

The IMO FireRaptor provides three forms of Solar Panel Rapid Shutdown to ZERO VOLTS in case of fire or other emergency: Manual Panel Shutdown to 0V Operated from Ground Level, Automatic Panel Shutdown to 0V at >85°C (185°F) Temperature, and an automatic Panel Shutdown to 0V on External Power Loss. The FireRaptor can be installed without any set-up and with any string inverter as its functionality is completely independent. "Plug & Play" style installation using industry standard connectors is easy, whether fitted to new installs or retrofitted to existing projects to upgrade fire safety functionality. Meeting NEC2017's regulation to switch DC current at the PV panel in under 30 seconds, FireRaptor is remains one of the safest and most effective means of isolating DC current at the source, and the only rapid shutdown with a 20 year warranty.
