70Amps Charge & Discharge Rates

Most controllers on the market only allow you a maximum of 60 amps charge & Discharge rate. You will also need to use a minimum of 3 Lithium batteries to achieve the maximum charge and discharge rate of 3Kw. Our Lux Power LXP 3600 AC Controller allows you to us 70 amps and with just 2 of our Aobo Uhome 2400 or Hanchu 3.2kW lithium batteries we can achieve up to 3.5Kw and a maximum of 3.6Kw with 3 or more batteries.

Our Lux Power LXP 3600 AC comes we Free Advanced Monitoring that gives you a full insight to your system showing more information than you can handle. This information can be viewed via a web portal or Mobile App.

Advanced Weather Compensation Programming

The Lux Power range now comes with advanced weather compensation (Weather predictions). This incredible feature allows you the customer to program your night time grid charging of your Lux power controller and batteries base on tomorrow’s irradiance (Weather) in your local area. This feature is designed for you to controller and operate your battery system at its optimum level, saving you more money on your investment. “There is no need to fill your batteries from the grid in the night at a cost if tomorrow’s weather is going to be sunny and you can fill your batteries for free!”

For Example

High Irradiance

If tomorrow’s irradiance in your local area is going to be high i.e., very sunny, then you can set your controller to only charge your batteries to 20% SOC (State of Charge) from the grid i.e., Octopus Go or Agile.

Medium Irradiance

If tomorrow’s irradiance in your local area is going to be a medium level i.e., sunny, and cloudy then you can set your controller to only charge your batteries to 50% SOC (State of Charge) from the grid i.e. Octopus Go or Agile

Low Irradiance

If tomorrow’s irradiance in your local area is going to be low i.e., very Cloudy, then you can set you controller to charge your batteries to 100% SOC (State of Charge) from the grid i.e. Octopus Go or Agile.

We Will Allow You The Customer To Set Your Own Percentages So Your Always In Control.

Advanced Eps

The Lux Power LXP 3600 AC Controller has an impressive, enhanced EPS feature will switch over in 0.01s in the event of a power cut, meaning these systems can also be used with Grid Share incentive programmes – Please note the EPS is limited to 13A and cannot power your entire fuse board.

Grid Charge & Octopus Agile/Outgoing/Go Compatible

New Energy providers will now provide extremely cheap off-peak renewable electricity. The Lux Power LXP 3600 AC can be programmed to take advantage of these cheap off-peak tariffs to charge the batteries to use the energy when the tariffs are high.

Power When You Need It The Most

Our Lux Power LXP 3600 AC has three-time settings to allow you to choose when you want your batteries to discharge. All other systems on the market only allow their systems to charge & discharge to set default parameters which is no good if all your battery power is gone before you get back home from work!
