If your Morningstar controller’s meter is displaying an alarm, it is helpful to consult the meter map for the particular controller you are using in order to access additional helpful information. The arrows on the map correspond to the arrow buttons on your meter, and the sequence that they need to be pressed in order to display the diagnosis. If you did not save the meter map that came with your controller, you can access it on the Morningstar Support site.
During one of our webinars, a question came up about battery temperature sensing associated with Morningstar charge controllers. Just to clarify, our TriStar MPPT family of controllers come with a remote temperature sensor (RTS) included. The TriStar PWM does not come with a remote temperature sensor but an RTS can be purchased separately. All other MS controllers include an internal temperature sensor. In addition to the TriStar PWM mentioned above, if more accurate battery temperature sensing is desired, the RTS accessory can be purchased for the SunSaver MPPT, SunKeeper, SunSaver DUO, and ProStar.
Our popular TriStar MPPT charge controller is now available in a 30 amp version. The new 30 amp version handles PV input from 400Wp to 1600Wp (up to 150Voc) and 12-48 VDC batteries. This controller has all the features and capabilities of our current 45 amp version but with a lower price point.
