Solar Pro CC20

My solar system had some collateral damage from a thunderstorm earlier in the week which fried the array fuse holder and singed the circuit board. Do any of you have a replacement that is serviceable? I know the manufacturer went belly up, but would prefer to use the same unit for cosmetic reasons since it is installed in cabinetry.

Re: Solar Pro CC20

I got a Go Power 30 amp controller (GP-PWM-30). Seems to fit the same template as the old one. I have not had any trouble with the overheating issues present in the other manufacturer. Before installing, I added a circuit breaker to allow disconnecting the solar panels from the bus when doing electrical work.

Re: Solar Pro CC20

Steve,

Thank you for that. I took a chance and ordered the Samlex Solar SCC-30AB and it worked just right, nearly identical in size but has so many more features. I love how it shows the amps and watts along with battery voltage. Pretty cool..
