MPPT CHARGE CONTROLLERS


Morningstar's range of MPPT controllers range from the small 10 A 120 VOC EcoBoost through to the 60 A 600 VOC TriStar, and come with their TrakStar™ technology to maximise solar power production.

EcoBoost        20/30/40 amps at 12 or 24 VDC

The EcoBoost MPPT™ solar charge controller brings Morningstar’s proprietary TrakStar Technology™ to their 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.

Electronic Protections
  • Solar Input: overload, short-circuit, high voltage warning,reverse polarity, high temperature, nighttime reverse current
  • Load Output: overload, short-circuit, high temperature reverse polarity
  • Battery reverse polarity (no battery removal)
  • Low Voltage Disconnect, Low Voltage Reconnect Settings: 11.4V/12.6V or custom (x2 for 24 volt systems)
  • Lighting Settings: Dusk-Dawn

With DC Transfer Switch (600V; 30A double pole; double throw DC Transfer Switch)
TS-MPPT-60-600V-48-DB-TR-GFPD
Pre-wired with Ground Fault Protection Device


The TriStar MPPT 600V charge controller uses advanced power electronics to efficiently utilize up to 600 Voc (open circuit voltage) PV or wind to charge 48 Vdc battery systems. Rated for 60 Amps, our TriStar MPPT 600V controller does much more than efficiently charge batteries; it also provides remote communications, data logging, adjustability and metering. In fact, the TriStar MPPT 600V controller is the only 600-volt PV controller to offer open communication protocols and true Ethernet-enabled functionality.


The TriStar MPPT 600V charge controller may be purchased with or without a pre-wired DC Disconnect Box. The pre-wired DC Disconnect Box version (model TS-MPPT-60-600V-48-DB) is acceptable for use with positively-grounded or negatively-grounded PV systems and helps to save on installation time and cost.

The TriStar MPPT 600V charge controller’s high voltage capability and flexible design enable several application scenarios including:

  • Off-grid PV systems greater than 150 Voc with long wire runs from the array to the controller
  • New installation grid-tie PV systems with battery back-up
  • Retrofitting string PV inverter systems to later add battery back-up without changing the PV array configuration
  • Battery-based Wind systems

Morningstar’s TriStar MPPT 600V Charge Controller can be used with higher voltage photovoltaic (PV) arrays, wind turbines or hydropower systems. This product enables the following application scenarios:

  • Adding modules incrementally with no string sizing issues
  • Off-grid PV, wind or hydro systems with input voltages greater than 150V
  • Fewer combined circuits and lower current for long wire runs from the array to the controller
  • New installation grid-tie PV systems with battery back-up
  • Retrofitting grid-tie PV systems to include battery back-up without changing the PV array configuration
  • Supplementary charging for AC Coupled PV systems

PWM CHARGE CONTROLLERS


Traditional solar regulators featuring PWM charging (pulse width modulation), operate by connecting the solar array directly to the battery bank. When the array is connected directly to the battery bank, the array output voltage is ‘pulled down’ to the battery voltage. This occurs because the batteries are very large load for the limited current sourcing capability of a solar array.   Morningstar's PWM range covers 4.5 A to 60 A in 12, 24 and 48 V versions.
