Clear Blue's power management system delivers the highest
levels of performance, reliability and maintainability, at the lowest cost. With
the Clear Blue controller, power can come from a hybrid of sources – solar, wind
or the grid, allowing optimal system performance even if one of the sources
doesn’t meet the need.
The controller has 3 power inputs, each with independent control:
- Provides source
independence for optimal performance and independent management and
- Enables over
capacity of solar panels to allow you to maximize available power for
cloudy days, while cutting back on sunny days when extra energy isn’t
required. This is especially useful for mobile and large load applications.
The controller can support a variety of battery technologies
including AGM or Gel batteries as well as other up and coming energy storage
Power systems management is done over the Internet with Clear Blue’s Illumience Cloud Control system. This allows you to remotely:
- Monitor and detect short term or long term stress and aging of a battery utilizing Clear Blue’s patent- pending dynamic charging
- Proactively, remotely perform maintenance on the battery to bring batteries back up to full health and extend battery life by 1 – 3 years
- Accurately determine the battery capacity as it changes with temperature, usage, age and number of cycles within the specific installation, location and configuration.
- Clear Blue’s Smart Off-Grid system performs a daily ongoing battery capacity test. The Illumience System provides historical trends on battery capacity, which is the only true way to determine battery health – something that no person with a meter standing in front of the pole can do.
