Comparing Four Versions of Morningstar 600V Charge Controllers

Morningstar’s TriStar MPPT™ 600V Solar Charge Controllers have proven to be a highly reliable solution to enable several application scenarios including:

  • The use of smaller diameter wire to reduce costs and simplify installation.
  • Long wire runs from the array to the controller.
  • New and retrofit grid-tie systems with battery backup.

Each of our 600V charge controller SKU’s are pictured and described below so you can make sure you use the version that is most appropriate to meet your needs.

TS-MPPT-60-600V-48 

Standard version: smallest version that does not have a PV disconnect or transfer switch. This version is most often used in high voltage off-grid residential and telecommunications applications with long wire runs from the array to the controller.

TS-MPPT-60-600V-48-DB

DB version: includes a disconnect box to disconnect power from the PV array and connection to batteries.  This version is most often used in off-grid residential and telecommunications applications by those who don’t want to be tasked with installing their own disconnect solution to meet safety requirements.

TS-MPPT-60-600V-48-DB-TR

TR version: includes a transfer switch which directs PV array power to a grid tied string inverter or to a battery bank. This version is used to retrofit grid-tied systems with battery backup for critical loads.

TS-MPPT-60-600V-48-DB-TR-GFPD

TR with GFPD version: includes a transfer switch and a pre-wired connection to a ground fault protection device. This version is used to retrofit grid-tied systems with battery backup and it meets US NEC requirements for ground fault protection.
