Left to right of the photo, the connections appear to be
- input from panel
- output to battery
- connection to loads
The symbol for load is a light bulb. Many controllers provide this sort of connection: you connect the stuff you want to power to these terminals, and the controller shuts the connection off if the battery voltage gets too low, to protect the battery.
