Morningstar’s TriStar MPPT solar controller with TrakStar Technology™ is an advanced maximum power point tracking (MPPT) battery charger for off-grid photovoltaic (PV) systems up to 3kW. Both controllers can be used with arrays with a maximum open circuit voltage of 150 VDC and charge batteries between 8 and 72 VDC. A remote temperature sensor is included.
The controller provides the industry’s highest peak efficiency of 99% and significantly less power loss compared to other MPPT controllers. The TriStar MPPT features a smart tracking algorithm that maximizes the energy harvest from the PV by rapidly finding the solar array peak power point with extremely fast sweeping of the entire I-V curve. Optional TriStar meter and remote provide detailed operating data, alarms and faults and three LED’s display system status.
The MeterHub (sold separately) allows multiple Morningstar products to communicate over a Meterbus network to enable multiple controllers to share a single TriStar meter and display both single controller data as well as aggregated data for the entire system.
Terminals accept up to 2 gauge wire.
