The EcoBoost MPPT™ solar charge controller brings Morningstar’s proprietary TrakStar Technology™ to our new line of Essentials controllers and accessories. The EcoBoost controllers automatically detect 12 or 24 V system configuration. They are highly efficient and accurate controllers designed to ensure that batteries attain a complete state of charge. They are also sophisticated load controllers. Using this feature to manage DC power consumption protects the batteries from over discharge and helps ensure long term system reliability. Small DC loads can be powered directly from the EcoBoost by way of two USB charging ports.
Morningstar EcoBoost controllers act as the central brain of PV powered DC electrical systems up to 1,120 watts and offer outstanding value, performance and dependability. These controllers are designed for international markets and are not sold in the USA or Canada.

This 5 minute video highlights the ProStar MPPT solar charge controller’s circuit board that differentiates it from other brands. In addition to the capacitors, inductors, processors, surge protectors, and other over-spec’d internal components, the quality of the controller’s heat sink and outer casing is also addressed. The video concludes with mention of features and capabilities related to communications, datalogging, lithium battery charging, and high quality and reliability.
It’s a recommended best practice to install your product’s latest firmware to ensure access to all up-to-date features, accessory compatibilities, and code modifications. Watch this 5 minute video for instructions on how to download and update ProStar MPPT firmware.
