    Erin,  have NO experience with any of that family of CCs.

    Why do you need a small MPPT CC?  Is it because you want to use 60-cell PVs?

    The manual is very thin on this product.   Only LEDs for indicators ... need to remove a jumper to EQ (IIRC),   limited voltage settability (although default is not horrible),  fixed Absorb time,  Comm Port needs Optional adapter   ...

    BUT,  it does include a Temp Sensor (RTS)    And it not too expensive.

    But,  really,  I know nothing of them.   FWIW,   Vic

    Outback has always designed solid products.
    Getting a feeling they are going for the run of the mill solar guys (like me) who want smaller systems. Victron also has smaller MPPT controllers at nice prices.

    I am going to look into it some more, for at the price I googled appears very attractive for a MPPT.
