looking for a unit that could monitor solar panel potential power
I have a 20 amp MPPT controller, 2-100 watt panels (in series) and a 100AH battery. Not grid tied. Wondering if there's some sort of unit I could hook to the system that would detect available unused power from the panels. If the battery is fully charged and the sun is out I'd like something that could switch on some load and put any available solar power to use! I don't want to tie into the grid at this point, just put 2-3 amps of 12v DC equipment - maybe more - on solar when there's extra power to be had. The unit would ideally provide a contact closure to switch on a relay. When the battery is charging the system can feed about 8 amps to the battery but I'd like to still put that 8 amps to use when the battery is full!
