Charge controller

20 May 2014

Morningstar’s TriStar MPPT 600 Volt Charge Controller is ideal for residential, industrial, and off-grid PV, offering long wire runs from the array to the controller. The TS-MPPT 600V leverages Morningstar’s TrakStar MPPT technology to deliver the widest PV input operating voltage range available in a controller. It uses advanced power electronics to efficiently utilize up to 600 Voc (open circuit voltage) PV or wind to charge 48 Vdc battery systems. The high-speed sweeping algorithm minimizes power loss and provides full visibility of the entire power curve, from open circuit to battery voltage, ensuring the maximum power point is chosen under all ambient conditions.

Rated for 60 amps, the TriStar MPPT 600V controller does much more than efficiently charge batteries—it also provides remote communications, data logging, adjustability, and metering. The TriStar MPPT 600V controller is currently the only 600V PV controller to offer open communication protocols and true Ethernet-enabled functionality.
