TriStar MPPT 600V

The TriStar MPPT 600V™  is a breakthrough in charge controller design. By accepting PV array input up to 600 Voc, it enables installers to design systems with longer, fewer strings, reducing cabling and hardware which make installation and wiring easier and faster. Morningstar’s advanced digital engineering combined with superior thermal management make the TS-MPPT-600V with TrakStar technology the only charge controller in its class that doesn’t require a cooling fan or fans, making it both extremely reliable and efficient (with 97.9% peak efficiency). Ideal for DC-coupled energy storage applications. Available in four versions:

  • 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

Key features and benefits

  • Accommodates PV systems > 150 Voc with long wire runs from the array to the controller.
  • Uses Morningstar’s patented 4-stage charging algorithm to optimize battery health.
  • Extensive system networking, monitoring and communications.
  • Optimized for harsh environments and equipped with electronic protections.
  • Enables battery back-up for grid-tied systems using more efficient DCcoupling system topology (as opposed to AC-coupling).
  • Fanless design for long-term reliability.

Videos

TriStar MPPT 600V Standard and DB Versions - 3 minute video

This video highlights the standard and disconnect box (DB) versions of the TriStar MPPT 600V charge controller. These devices provide an ideal solution for systems that require long wire runs from PV arrays to the controller. Included in the video are pictures of the controller, and applications diagrams regarding grid-tie battery backup and input to PV  systems. Additional features such as communications, metering and monitoring are also addressed.

TriStar MPPT 600V Transfer Switch (TR) Versions - 3 minute video

Most residential and light commercial grid-tied solar systems need utility power to operate, so they won’t function during a grid outage. This animated video illustrates how Morningstar’s TriStar MPPT 600V Controller with DC Transfer Switch can be used with other components to charge battery systems to provide backup power to run your critical loads when the grid goes down. This is a clean, economical, scalable solution that does not compromise your solar system’s efficiency.
