solar charge controller

I bought the 60a ver of this:

the third image has a pretty simple and straight diagram , solar, battery , load. so.. np

but just wanted to confirm a few things since it comes with no other specs.

1) it is 12v/24v compatible, so does that means i can hook up 24v battery to it and there would be 24v on load output , correct?
2) it says it can auto detect 12,24,36,48 vdc systems, so that means i can run my solar panels at 12v or 48v with 24v batteries?
3) do my 8 panels need a specific array, ie is it ok to string 48v,48v,48v,24v on each parallel bus or do i need 2 extra panels to even out that last bus?
4) is there advantage to having a 12v solar bus over a 48v bus?
thanks!
