    Morningstar Ground Fault Protection Device

    Morningstar’s Ground Fault Protection Device™ (GFPD) prevents current from following any unintended paths during a ground fault. Other ground fault detection/interruption products break the bond to the grounded conductor. When this occurs, not only is the earth bond compromised, but the battery and DC loads can also be left ungrounded and floating. For a negatively grounded system this means that the negative side of the battery and loads can float to negative Voc in relation to ground and the positive side can float to (negative Voc + Vbat). Morningstar’s GFPD better isolates the array from the battery and loads, while maintaining the bond to ground.

    Morningstar’s Ground Fault Protection Device™ is compatible with the following Morningstar solar charge controllers:

    TriStar MPPT 600V

    TriStar MPPT

    ProStar MPPT 

    Key Features

    Disconnects both the positive and negative conductor and completely isolates PV source circuits

    Trips at 300mA compared to 1A for alternative solutions

    Provides design flexibility to accommodate large and small array
    configurations

    Uses high quality breaker solutions rather than fuses which are problematic to replace at remote sites

    Works like a traditional AC GFI

    Maintains the integrity of earth bond for battery and loads

    Does not require an extra warning label at the battery per U.S. National
    Electric Code requirements

    Makes it easier to locate and troubleshoot ground faults

    Powered via the solar power system’s battery

    Equipped with both visual and audible alarms

    Built to support both single controller and multiple controller systems

    When the earth bond is not broken, Morningstar’s GFPD will only shut off
    affected controllers

    All loads will continue to operate safely with the battery remaining bonded to
    ground

    Multiple controllers and GFPDs can be added on an as-needed basis
