Simple Pump’s CUSTOM LINEAR CURRENT BOOSTER
The big difference in this system is our custom-made Linear Current Booster, specifically engineered to our Simple Pump specifications.
It incorporates MPPT, (Maximum Power Point Tracking) to get every bit of power the solar modules can give.
Built-in, high energy, Military Grade, capacitors provide faster / easier motor starting, providing the motor with a full 30amps at startup.
There is a time delay built in. After a start-up attempt the booster shuts off all power to the motor, reloads the capacitor, and, after about three minutes, tries again to start the motor.
This process will start daily as soon as enough solar energy hits the modules and they go active. Once the run window can no longer be met towards the end of the day the system shuts down for the night and restarts with the morning sun.
