Morningstar Solar Charge Controllers & Inverters

Is your system less-than-perfect? Ultimately, the health of your batteries will tell you that. But that’s a hard and expensive way to learn! Instead, learn how choosing the right solar charge controller up-front can make or break your off-grid system.

This webinar is conducted each month to introduce individuals to Morningstar and off-grid solar. It is also appropriate for experienced professionals who are looking for a refresher, or to have their pressing questions answered by one of our engineers. Attend this webinar to receive One NABCEP CE credit and  learn about:

  • Battery charging stages
  • Differences between PWM and MPPT controllers
  • Effects of oversizing PV arrays
  • Efficiency variations with output power
  • Electronic and environmental protections
  • Controller/inverter features and accessories
  • High voltage charge controllers

Solar Powers the Digital Oilfield. Morningstar Powers Solar

This video provides an overview of the digital oilfield and how Morningstar solar charge controllers have been regulating power for cathodic protection, RTU’s, process control equipment, lighting, telecommunications, and other electrical loads at remote oil & gas sites throughout the world. New certifications for larger PWM and MPPT solar charge controllers enable greater capabilities and flexibility concerning remote power in Hazardous Locations (HazLoc).

What’s New About Off-Grid Solar in Hazardous Locations

Watch this joint webinar between SunWize and Morningstar to discover how new Hazardous Location certifications for solar charge controllers are impacting off-grid power systems at oil & gas sites.  The SunSaver MPPT, ProStar, and ProStar MPPT solar charge controllers have joined the Sunsaver PWM controller to achieve International, European, and North American certification markings (IECEx, ATEX, and UL/CSA).

This is a “game-changer” that provides hazardous locations throughout the world with:

  • Greater power from larger PWM AND MPPT charge controllers
  • More module configurations and array oversizing
  • Healthier batteries. AGMs are not throwaways!
  • Meter adjusted programmable settings
  • Lighting control in the hazard zone
  • Remote communications and data monitoring capabilities
