The CML series is a sophisticated solar charge regulator family for low cost applications.

The electronic circuit is equipped with a micro-controller that provides high efficiency charging technology together with a number of outstanding status display, warning and safety functions. Excellent battery treatment is now available at reasonable cost and with long-tern reliability even at tough environmental conditions.

The temperature-compensated three-stage PWM charging method (boost - equalization - float) is well proven in the CR charge controller series. It is designed for charging sealed and vented laid-acid batteries. The battery status is clearly displayed by three LEDs. As the first controller on the market in this price range it comes with an acoustic low voltage load disconnect pre-warning feature.
