Relay Driver

Relay Driver

The Relay Driver™ is a logic module which provides high level system control functions such as high/low voltage alarms, load control and generator start. The product controls four independent relay driver outputs by reading digital data inputs from Morningstar’s TriStar controller or by reading battery voltage when used in systems with other controllers.

Key features and benefits

  • Cost-effective and Highly reliable
  • Fully Programmable
  • Advanced Generator Control
