Clear Blue’s Smart Off-Grid Solar Controller is a powerful, full-featured controller that enables manufacturers to deliver reliable, intelligent, and high performance off-grid options to their customers. It has been designed to be easily integrated into a variety of products such as solar powered streetlights, security systems, mobile power, lighting and signage, electronic charging stations and more. 



The Smart Off-Grid Controller provides excellent energy generation and control with high reliability, easy installation and full remote management and control over the Internet of solar powered systems.

The controller has 3 power inputs, each with independent control. Learn more about independent load control here. It can support both D/C or A/C lighting loads as well as other low power devices, with dimming and optional motion detection.

For hybrid wind/solar systems, the controller works with the Clear Blue Wind Controller.

The controller uses our patented dynamic charging technology, which calculates battery age and and quality and adjusts the battery charging as needed to extend battery life. This capability can add 1-3 years or more of battery life compared to other controllers.

The controller can support a variety of battery technologies including AGM or Gel batteries as well as other up and coming energy storage technologies.

The controller measures and transmits all key operating parameters to the Illumience Cloud Control service, and allows all key control settings to be changed remotely. This enables remote control of all power and load functions to optimize performance, set lighting profiles and dim lights as needed. The system also automatically identifies and diagnoses issues for fast and convenient troubleshooting, sending you alarms when needed.

Built in to the system is a machine-to-machine (M2M) wireless communications service that transmits this data every 5 minutes or less, depending on the customer's requirements.


The controller also comes with a temperature probe,  antenna and communications cable harness, power cable harnesses and an optional motion detector.

Real Time Intelligence over the Internet
  • Motion detection can be enabled remotely in all 4 adjustable light profile stages. 
  • Real time event settings combined with motion detection ensures the required light at the right time, while optimizing system availability and cycle life of the system.
  • Customizable system alarms, weather data history and multi-level reporting provide unmatched intelligence.
Remote and Proactive Maintainability
  • Full remote control and monitoring of all system components via PC or smartphone using Illumience Cloud Control. Functions include ability to check solar panel, perform short circuit test, adjust battery level, reboot system remotely.
  • Proactive versus reactive maintenance can determine when batteries or solar panels need to be replaced.
  • Remote troubleshooting and control slashes maintenance time and cost. 
  • Optimizing input power extends battery life, reducing maintenance and cost of ownership
Reliability and Optimized Performance
  • Individual systems are managed to deliver 100% up time with site specific solar performance. Maximum battery life ensured through optimized charge profiles and life cycle management.
  • Short circuit protection.
  • Ability to overprovision to maximum of 40A peak of solar capacity ensures power on cloudy days.
