TriStar MPPT 600V

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:

  • TS-MPPT-60-600V-48
    (Standard)
  • TS-MPPT-60-600V-48-DB
    (With Disconnect Box)
  • TS-MPPT-60-600V-48-DB-TR
    (With DC Transfer Switch)
  • TS-MPPT-60-600V-48-DB-TR-GFPD
    (Pre-wired with Ground Fault Protection Device)

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.
