17 Bogart Engineering SC-2030 Solar Charge Controller
The Bogart Engineering SC-2030 is a high efficiency PWM photovoltaic charge controller and is
made in the U.S.A.

When paired up with the TriMetric 2030 battery monitoring system, it carries efficiency and utility to a
whole new level.

The mod. SC-2030 is for either 12 volt or 24 volt systems and is rated at 30 amps.

It can be easily set in the field for 12 or 24 volt and can be set for use with either flooded or sealed
(AGM or GEL cell) battery types in less than one minute.

To get the most out of your solar panels they should have the following specifications:

12 volt panel or panels would have an open circuit voltage (Voc) of 19.0 to 22.0 volts.

24 volt panel or panels would have an open circuit voltage (Voc) of 38.0 to 44.0 volts.

Panels with voltages outside of these ranges would have lower efficiencies as they are not designed
for charging batteries.

Please note: to charge a 12 volt battery system you would need nominal 12 volt photovoltaic modules and
to charge a 24 volt battery system you would need nominal 24 volt panels.

Setting one up is simple and straight forward.

Specifications:

Regulation type: Pulse Width Modulation
Solar Panel open-circuit voltage: 55 volts maximum
Solar panel nominal voltage: 12 or 24 volt
Nominal battery voltage: 12 or 24 volt
Required operational current: while sun is shining - 25 ma, night time - 1ma maximum
Battery type: AGM, Gel or flooded lead acid
Solar panel peak current: up to 32 amps (higher currents reduce output)
Minimum In/Out efficiency at 30 amps: 97.5% (12 volt systems) 98.5% (24 volt systems)
Minimum In/Out efficiency at 15 amps: 99%
Battery capacity: 10 to 10,000 amp hours
Terminal block wire gauge: up to 6 AWG
Charging profiles: three stages and an optional fourth stage
Ambient temperature: 0 deg. F to +140 deg F (-18 deg C to +60 deg C)
Dimensions: app. 5-1/4" long (including mouning tabs) by 3-1/8" wide by 2-3/4" front to back

Charging parameters when used alone (without being connected to a TriMetric-2030) are:

When set for 12 volt batteries the flooded setting is 14.6 volts absorption and a float of 13.2 volts.
When set for 12 volt batteries the AGM or Gel sealed setting is 14.3 volts absorption and a float of 13.2 volts.

When set for 24 volt batteries the flooded setting is 29.2 volts absorption and a float of 28.6 volts.
When set for 24 volt batteries the AGM or Gel sealed setting is 28.6 volts absorption and a float of 26.4 volts.

When paired up with the TriMetric 2030, the TriMetric allows you to tailor the charging parameters to
give the highest state of charge based on your battery.

A note on voltage settings:

Some battery manufacturers want to see their batteries, especially deep cycle flooded types,
charged at a very high voltage.
You should ALWAYS consider the operating voltage limits of the devices that are connected to your
battery system.
Some of the top end voltages recommended by battery manufacturers can damage
nominal 12 volt d.c. appliances and electronic equipment.


To use the SC-2030 and the TriMetric 2030 in tandem, a four conductor cable with
RJ14 connectors on each end is required.
These communication cables are available on this page.

To use two SC-2030 controllers in parallel version 1.1B (9/16) (to double charging capacity) with the
current Trimetric 2030 RV or A models version 2.5 (9/2016 Revison) a parallel controller kit is required.

To see the wiring layout for running two SC-2030's in parallel in conjuntion with the current production
Trimetric 2030, please click onto the following link:


This cable can be up to one-hundred feet long.

The TriMetric uses a four conductor, or equivalent, wire which you can purchase
at your local home center or purchase a pre-made wiring harness made up by Bogart
which is here in our website:


We are offering the SC-2030 in three different ways.

By itself or with the TriMetric 2030 and a 500 amp shunt or with the TriMetric 2030 and a 100 amp shunt.

bogart engineering trimetric 2030rv wiring harness
Bogart uses either ATC fuses, as shown, or glass fuses - depending on availability.

Wiring harness for TriMetric battery system monitors.

This wiring harness is made up by Bogart Engineering and is available in two
lengths, 35 and 50 foot.

The 22 gauge four conductor cable is plain on one end for connecting to the
captive lugs on the TriMetric.

On the other end, three wires have ring terminals with # 10 holes for connecting to the
shunt.
The fourth wire has an in-line fuse holder, along with two 1 amp fuses, one for the holder and
one spare, and a ring terminal with a 3/8" hole for connecting to the positive terminal of your battery bank.

This harness connects your TriMetric to the main or house battery(s) system.
To monitor the voltage of a second battery(s) such as a starting battery, you need to supply
your own wire for that connection.
