PicoCell PicoCell ½ ¾ - 2HP

Off Grid Solar Pump Controller

DESCRIPTION:

PicoCell replaces traditional electromagnetic design concepts with high voltage silicon and patented adaptive firmware. This drives a dramatic reduction in size and complexity. One small device now incorporates and integrates the functionality of an inverter, VFD, MPPT controller, phase initiator and voltage boost in a form factor the size of a tissue box.
One universal SKU can power any motor, pump, compressor or other load regardless of whether it is single or three phase AC, 50 or 60Hz, 120 or 230VAC. Designed to handle remote off-grid installations, the all aluminum chassis is IP65 rated for harsh outdoor environments and can operate in high temperatures, humidity and corrosive environments.
PicoCell supports up to 2 digital and 4 analog sensor inputs allowing for a variety of sophisticated installation scenarios. Optional WiFi, Cellular, and LORA communication modules facilitate ease of integration for IoT and data analytics applications.

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS: 

  • Run installed or new AC motor/pump/compressor with free solar power
  • Smart technology that is easy to use and can provide long term cost savings
  • Universal controller-single/three phase, 50/60Hz, 120V/230Vac
  • Small sized box, simple hook up, weather proof, durable and automatic
  • Maximizes solar panel efficiency allowing fewer panels to supply the needed power
  • Chnages a 1 or 2 speed motor/pump into a soft start, VFD (Variable Frequency Drive)
  • WiFi, Cellular and LoRa communication modules are optional
  • An affordable solar power project addition to homes, businesses and community
  • Patented and Made in the USA
