In an off grid solar power system, the role of the off grid solar inverter charger is to convert the DC power converted by the photovoltaic panel and stored in the battery into AC power for use by the AC load. The full name of the solar controller is the solar charge and discharge controller. Its function is to control the multi-channel photovoltaic panel to charge the battery and control the battery to supply power to the solar off-grid inverter. The functions of the two are completely different.

Can an off grid solar inverter charger replace the solar controller?

There is a kind of equipment called hybrid inverter, which, as the name suggests, is a machine in which the inverter controller is integrated. The off-grid inverter control unit has the functions of both an off-grid inverter and a solar controller. When you use an off-grid inverter control unit in an off-grid power generation system, you do not need a controller. But if you ask whether off-grid inverters can replace solar controllers, the answer is: no.
