Blue Sky SB2000

Hi all,
I would like to add 2 Kyocera 135's to my existing bank of 3 Siemens 50 watt panels. I would like to utilize the Blue Sky 25 amp charge controller that I have and was wondering if this mppt. controller is up for the job. The 2 Kyocera panels will deliver 7-8 amps each and the 3 Siemens panels 9 amps together. I realize adding these panels will put me close to the 25 amp limit, but was wondering if there are other problems that may arise. I have 3-12 volt AGM batteries wired in parallel. Thanks, Jim

Only Blue Sky would know. Is the rating 25 amps into the battery, or 25 from the panel. Does the unit protect itself from overcurrent? Probably, since it's so easy to do. But I'd call them or really examine the literature.
