Morningstar’s TriStar MPPT 600V charge controller leverages Morningstar’s innovative TrakStar™ MPPT technology and our 20+ years of power electronics engineering excellence, to enable the widest input operating voltage range available from a solar array, wind turbine or hydro input. This controller’s standard and DB versions are for off-grid applications, and the TR versions were developed to enable retrofitting grid-tied systems with battery backup: TS-MPPT-60-600V-48 (Standard) TS-MPPT-60-600V-48-DB (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) 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. In fact, the TriStar MPPT 600V controller is the only 600-volt PV controller to offer open communication protocols and true Ethernet-enabled functionality. Key Features & Benefits The TriStar MPPT 600V charge controller delivers high reliability and excellent performance and features: 97.9% peak efficiency.
