Morningstar TriStar - MPPT Charge Controllers

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. 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. It is capable of charging battery systems up to 48 volts. It can charge 12 volt systems from higher voltage solar arrays such as the Solar Innova 190 watt panels.

  • Robust thermal design and no cooling fans
  • Parallel circuit design provides less stress and longer life for electronic components
  • No mechanical relays
  • Extensive electronic protections including PV short circuit protection
  • Epoxy encapsulated inductors and conformally coated printed circuit boards

An optional monitoring panel or PC interface can be fitted. This monitor shows state of charge, charge current, total amp-hours. It logs system data, provides diagnostics and records equalization cycles.
