I have a Solaris voltage controller ? Answered


Congratulations in order or what ? 

Yes & thanks lol
 Some how it did not post my question just what you see, sorry.

It is a 12 volt 16 amp model and does not work, Is there a way any of you can walk me through diagnosing the problem & fixing it?

I know less about electronics than I do about opperating this message board so be ware.

Sorry Charley, looks like you have to explicitly post a link using the little link button in the new editor (top row, 5th from the left)

Where/what IS a solaris  ? Is it a solar panel or what ? 

Sorry Charley, same thing a lesbian said to me once in Dewey Beach "Sorry Charley but we actually like tuna" lol

It's a solar charge controller Solaris 16 is the model # It has a small LCD screen to show voltage and amps 5 leds to show what it's doing & battery condition
but It does nothing.when hooked up

Check it for internal fuses. Have you any "accidents" to confess about connecting it initially.....?

There appears to be no fuses.

Bought it used, no accidents on my part but who knows about pevious owner, he may have let some smoke out.

I only hooked it to PV panel not battery supply so maybe for some reason it needs to be hooked to both????

that wouldn't be too much of a surprise, try it.
Can't find a  datasheet on line. Is it MADE by Solaris ? 

Can you at least give us a model number and a description of what the problem is?

Just did in above post.

How do you get rid of the spam posts? flagged it twice already

once you've flagged it you just have to wait some indeterminant amount of time to see whether the admins actually follow the flagging option, and then make noise directly if ntohing is done (see about at the bottom of the screen for direct PMs to ibles' employees)

FWIW, I've flagged that author about 6 or 8 times now today, since it's clear that ?she? is spamming most of the messages that get posted.
