    Morningstar TriStar MPPT™ 600V Solar Charge Controller

      How do you design the ultimate solar controller? Engineer it to operate at temperatures from -20° C to 55° C, withstand an environmental rating of IP67 and CE approval. Then outfit it with advanced electronics powered by the only microprocessor designed specifically for solar. The result is the Morningstar TriStar™ MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking™) 600V Solar Charge Controller — a powerhouse controller designed to propel your photovoltaic system into the future. 

      A solar charge controller is an important part of any solar electric system application. Its function is to keep the batteries charged to their fullest capacity from the maximum amount of available sunlight or photovoltaic (PV) energy created by your solar panels. They work in four stages and are designed for single-phase, grid-tie (or off-grid) systems with battery storage. The Morningstar TriStar MPPT™ 600V is well equipped in both hardware design and features for reliability and performance.

      The Morningstar Tristar MPPT 600V is available in four models:

      TS-MPPT-60-600V-48: Standard

      TS-MPPT-60-600V-48-DB: Standard with Disconnect Box

      TS-MPPT-60-600V-48-DB-TR: with DC Transfer Switch

      TS-MPPT-60-600V-48-DB-TR-GFPD: Pre-wired with Ground Fault Protection Device

      Why You Need an MPPT Controller for Your Solar System

      There are two types of solar charge controllers on the market: MPPT (maximum power point tracking) and PWM (pulse-width modulation). The type of charge controller you need depends on the prevailing solar conditions your expect to encounter. MPPT controllers convert more energy into useable electricity. They are best suited for areas where seasonal, weather, and shading conditions can cause significant variations in solar harvesting. MPPT controllers are ideal for off-grid solar applications such as on a campervan or RV or remote cabins or tiny houses. 

      PWM controllers are less efficient than MPPTs and are best-suited for large stationary systems with consistent sunlight, minimal shading and no physical space limitations. PWM controllers are not generally a good fit for campervans or RVs.

      All Morningstar charge controllers are built to industry-leading quality standards with over-spec’d components, advanced electronic design and thermal engineering, and have no cooling fans to fail. Over four million Morningstar controllers have been sold since 1993 and making them the first choice for leading solar installers around the globe.

      Key Features and Benefits

      Accommodates PV systems > 150 Voc with long wire runs from the array to the controller. 

      Uses Morningstar’s patented 4-stage charging algorithm to optimize battery health. 

      Extensive system networking, monitoring and communications. 

      Optimized for harsh environments and equipped with electronic protections.

      Enables battery back-up for grid-tied systems using more efficient DC coupling system topology (as opposed to AC-coupling).

      Fan-less design for long-term reliability
