 Product Description

Atkinson Electronics Lighting Charge Controller - PVLC-15MD

Atkinson Electronics, Lighting Charge Controller with Motion Detector, 15A, 12-24V, PVLC-15MD

The PVLC-15MD is a small, micro-controller based, reliable charge and lighting controller that has a built-in motion sensor. It is usually found at locations such as bus stops, park restrooms, walkways, campground trash facilities, and other areas where the number of batteries and PV panels can be reduced by utilizing the motion detector to turn on the light only when people are present. The PVLC-15MD provides automatic dusk-to-dawn lighting control, providing for both nighttime and daytime motion-triggered lighting control as selected. Because of its fully-encapsulated design, the PVLC-15MD can operate in the wide temperature ranges and harsh environments found in remote, battery-powered, electronic systems. The PVLC-15MD switches automatically to handle 12 or 24 volt DC battery systems with built-in low voltage disconnect to protect the batteries from over-discharging.


  • Highlights - Reduces required battery and PV size because of motion-triggered lighting control. Easily mounted in any enclosure and fully encapsulated for the most rugged environments. Micro-controller for digital accuracy and reliability. Switches automatically to handle 12 or 24 volt DC systems. Automatic dusk and dawn lighting control. All night, or adjustable time-off for area lighting, with pre-dawn lighting for signs. Built-in temperature compensation for PV charging with low voltage disconnect. Handles 15 amps for both PV charging and lighting loa.
