All of the charge controllers from Xantrex feature a 3-stage PWM charging algorithm which is a big step up from the older relay style controllers. The C12 is a small 12V/12A unit that is unique in that it can operate as a charge controller and 12 VDC load controller at the same time (something most other controllers can't do). The C12 also has a built-in automatic lighting control circuit that will turn a 12VDC light on at dusk and run it for a user adjustable time period or from dusk-to-dawn if there is enough energy stored in the battery bank. Add to this the fact that the C12 has user adjustable voltage setpoints, a tri-color system status LED, battery temperature sensor option and it is outdoor rated and you have a very versatile 12V charge/load/light controller. The C12 measures 6.5" H x 4.3" W x 1.5" D and features a two year warranty.
