Lux Hybrid inverters are a powerful single unit solution for both solar inverter and battery storage controller combined.
The Lux Hybrid units are available single-phase solutions and are available in three different sizes – 3.6 (16A limited), 5kw – 25A and 6kw – 26A. Components required for installation and monitoring connection are provided with each unit as standard.
The Hybrid units are extremely powerful. The 6.0 Hybrid can have up to 8kw of PV panels attached although it is 26A limited. It can therefore supply up to 6.0kw of power from the solar to the load, and at the same time charge up to 4.0kw of power into the solar.
The excellent monitoring platform allows the customer to fully monitor and programme the system from smart phone, tablet using the App, or from a laptop or PC using the server. It allows for remote technical support and future manufacturer upgrades to be provided.

Parallel units what does this mean?
A parallel unit is a unit which can be used as a single stand alone unit, or as part of a larger system. If more than one unit is being used, then they can be linked together. When linking them together they operate as one unit being the Primary unit with all other units operating as Subordinate units.
Where more than one unit is being installed in parallel the Primary unit is installed exactly like any single unit would be installed – using the CT clamp to measure the operation of the property, then the other units are changed (on the monitoring) to be Subordinate units, simply taking command from the primary unit as to charging or discharging.
Using multiple units in Parallel allows the units to work an be controlled from the Primary Lux unit, providing better communication between the units for more balanced performance.

LUX Power LXP 5000 Parallel Hybrid Controller Key Features
Up To 20 Years Warranty
All our Lux Power Controllers come with 12 Years manufacturer’s warranty, However at an extra charge you can upgrade your warranty to 20 years giving you a piece of mind when it come to your investment
80Amps Charge & Discharge Rates
The Charge rate determines how much power you can put into your batteries, so how much solar you can harvest and how fast you can charge your batteries. The Discharge rate determines how much load you can cover when there is no more solar and you are covering your load from the batteries.
Luxpower 6.0 Parallel Hybrids have a 80A charge and discharge. As we use Low voltage batteries connected in parallel, the system is always a 50V system. Therefore you max charge/discharge is around 80A x 50v = 4000w of power which is around 4.0kw.
Our Lux Power LXP 6000 Parallel Hybrid comes with Free Advanced Monitoring that gives you a full insight to your system showing more information than you can handle. The platform is an overview of the system performance providing daily weekly and monthly information. This platform allows you to simply change settings such as charge rates and make use of the excellent FREE lux programs. The Luxpower monitoring can be viewed via a web portal on laptops and PC’s or Mobile App for smartphones and tablets.
Advanced Weather Compensation Programming
The Lux Power range now comes with advanced weather compensation (Weather predictions). This incredible feature allows you the customer to program your night time grid charging of your Lux power controller and batteries base on tomorrow’s irradiance (Weather) in your local area. This feature is designed for you to controller and operate your battery system at its optimum level, saving you more money on your investment.
“There is no need to fill your batteries from the grid in the night at a cost if tomorrow’s weather is going to be sunny and you can fill your batteries for free!”
The Lux Power LXP 6000 Hybrid Controller has an impressive, enhanced EPS feature will switch over in 0.01s in the event of a power cut, meaning these systems can also be used with Grid Share incentive programmes – Please note the EPS is limited to 13A and is designed for Emergency Power Supply only, it is not designed to power your entire fuse board.
Grid Charge & Octopus Agile/Outgoing/Go Compatible
New Energy providers will now provide extremely cheap off-peak renewable electricity. The Lux Power LXP 6000 Parallel Hybrid can be programmed to take advantage of these cheap off-peak tariffs to charge the batteries to use the energy when the tariffs are high. Luxpower constantly respond to new offerings and developments in the industry and develop new add-ons to the monitoring to simplify and improve the experience for our customers.
Lux Power Monitoring
Lux Power Monitoring comes with three dongle options, WI-FI, Hardwired or 4G Sim Based
All Lux controllers have a free integrated advanced monitoring and maintenance platform. Each Lux unit is provided with a Lux Dongle which is inserted into the Lux unit and used to pair the Lux to the customer router.
The monitoring has multiple levels to allow not only full monitoring for the customer, as well as remote programming, but also technical updates to be delivered to each unit as technology improves.
