Solar Controller

The solar controller compares the temperature in the hot water cylinder with that in the solar panel and activates a pump to circulate heated water from the solar panel to the hot water cylinder when there is solar gain. It can also prevent frost formation in the system by activating the pump if the temperature of the collector falls below a predetermined level.
