I'm going tro assume that your batteries are 12V, your system Voltage is 12V.

So, with 350W of PV power, you'll be charging with around the same power.
350W / 12V = 29.2A
You need a charge controller that can charge at 30A to be able to make the most of your solar panel.

The MPPT100/30 will be perfect for you. This charge controller's output will be maximised with 350W of solar on a sunny day.
If you have even the slightest idea of adding more panels in the future, then you'd be better off considering a larger charge controller.
