    Morningstar TriStar MPPT 600 VDC Charge Controllers

    The TS-MPPT-600V uses Morningstar’s TrakStar™ MPPT technology coupled with the widest PV input operating-voltage range available in a PV controller. The high-speed sweeping algorithm of the TrakStar™ MPPT technology enables this charge controller to harvest the maximum energy from a solar array under all ambient conditions.

    The TS-MPPT-600V charge controllers are rated for 60 A output to charge 48 VDC battery systems, and can be programmed to charge 24 VDC or 60 VDC battery systems. Their wide input operating voltage range of 100-525 VDC, 600 VDC maximum open-circuit voltage limit, and buck-boost design, allow flexible string sizing that also mitigates PV shading. A four-stage charging algorithm helps to optimize battery health.

    The TS-MPPT-600V controller is Ethernet enabled for remote communications, data logging, adjustability, and metering. Communication ports/interfaces include Ethernet, EIA-485, RS-232 and MeterBus.

    Built-in lightning protection protects the circuitry from nearby lightning-induced voltage/current spikes. The large heat sink provides convective cooling without fans, so there are no moving parts. Continuous full power operation up to 45 °C ambient temperatures. The printed circuit boards are conformal coated for protection against moisture and dust. Self-diagnostics and electronic error protections help reduce the risk of installation missteps.

    The TriStar MPPT 600 V charge controller is available with or without a pre-wired DC Disconnect Box. The pre-wired DC Disconnect Box version, the TS-MPPT-60-600V-48-DB, can be used with positively grounded or negatively-grounded PV systems and has both array and battery disconnects.

    TriStar MPPT 600 VDC Charge Controllers w/ Array Transfer Switch
    The TriStar charge controller is now available as the TS-MPPT-60-600V-48-DB-TR with an array transfer switch. This 30 A, 600 VDC double-pole, double-throw switch will enable the Tristar to be installed between the PV array and a grid-tie inverter so that during a utility outage, the array can be switched to charge a battery backup system. This arrangement does not require any compatibility between the grid-tie inverter and battery inverter, and is extremely reliable as a retrofit backup-power solution to a grid-tie PV system. The backup system can be made to fit only the backup requirements, not the equipment requirements. A larger PV array can be fed into one charge control for higher output during cloudy periods, and will simply limit the charge at 60 A (or lower setting) when there is more power available from the array. 

    The TS-MPPT-60-600V-48-DB-TR-GFPD is the same control with transfer switch, and includes Morningstar’s advanced ground-fault-protection device with the control. 
    A battery-temperature sensor (RTS) is included. Wire terminals accept #14 to #2 AWG wire. All units are NEMA1 rated for indoor installation (IP20). Listed to UL 1741 and Canadian CSA C22.2 No. 107.1.01. FCC Class B Part 15 compliant.
    Ambient operating temperature range: -40 ºF to +113 ºF (-40 ºC to +45 ºC).
    These charge controllers are covered by a 5-year warranty.
