Looking for units, for instance, like this one:


I'd like to put one on my wind turbine, and another on my PV array, for
curiosity. I had a TM-500, but it did alot of bells-and-whistles stuff
that duplicated my OutBack Mate, so I passed it along to somebody who
needed it more than I did. I could, of course, buy two more TM-500s,
but it seems wasteful.


What I want is something that can take up to 40v DC at up to 70a, and
totalize in either AH or WattH, preferrably both ways, up and down.

My choice has always been the PL series of regulators. They work up to
48 V and con log a couple of inputs.

 They need to seriously improve their PWM and update their product range.

 Maybe but they still work very well.

 You're talking about the Plasmatronics ones? Nice enough, yeah, but I'm
kinda looking for something oh, say, a little closer to home... which I
guess I failed to specify was southwest Quebec, Canada... North
America... the Northern Hemisphere. Where it's a very cold winter right
now... unlike, say, the weather in good ole Oz right now. My bad ;-).

Thanks, though. Will add them to my bookmarks; you never know...

I also came across the ones Bogart Engineering makes. They look kinda
good, too, if the PentaMetric will be out soon...
