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:

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.

The TriStar controllers with a transfer switch (items 3611140 & 3611145) are ideal for retrofitting existing grid-tied systems with battery backup power. These controllers include an integrated high voltage transfer switch which can accept input from a 600v array of solar panels providing the ability to easily retrofit almost any grid-tied string inverter with battery backup.

Morningstar’s TS-MPPT-60-600V-48-DB-TR-GFPD controller includes an integrated DC battery disconnect, eliminating the need for a separate battery breaker and breaker box. This model also includes Morningstar’s 600V-GFPD ground fault protection device which may be required by your local building authority depending on local codes.
