Morningstar TriStar MPPT Solar Controller, TS-MPPT-60

Morningstar’s TriStar MPPT solar controller with TrakStar Technology™ is an advanced maximum power point tracking (MPPT) battery charger for off-grid photovoltaic (PV) systems up to 3kW. The controller provides the industry’s highest peak efficiency of 99% and significantly less power loss compared to other MPPT controllers. The TriStar MPPT features a smart tracking algorithm that maximizes the energy harvest from the PV by rapidly finding the solar array peak power point with extremely fast sweeping of the entire I-V curve. This product is the first PV controller to include on-board Ethernet for a fully web-enabled interface and includes up to 200 days of data logging.

Features:

Maximizes Energy Harvest:
• Better peak power point tracking than other MPPT controllers
• Very fast sweeping of the entire I-V curve
• Recognition of multiple power points during shading or mixed PV arrays
• Excellent performance at sunrise and low solar insolation levels

Extremely High Reliability:
• Robust thermal design and no cooling fans
• Parallel circuit design provides less stress and longer life for electronic components
• No mechanical relays
• Extensive electronic protections including PV short circuit protection
• Epoxy encapsulated inductors and conformally coated printed circuit boards

Very High Efficiency:
• Peak efficiency of 99%
• Proprietary tracking algorithm minimizes power losses
• Low self-consumption
• Continuous operation at full power to 45°C without need to de-rate
• Selected electronic devices with higher ratings to minimize losses from heating

Extensive Networking and Communications Capabilities:
Enables system monitoring, data logging and adjustability. Uses open standard MODBUS™ protocol and Morningstar’s MS View software.
• Meterbus: communications between compatible Morningstar products
• Serial RS-232: connection to a personal computer
• EIA-485: communications between multiple devices on a bus
• Ethernet: fully web-enabled interface to a local network or internet; view from a web browser or send email/text messages.

Metering and Data Logging:
• Optional TriStar meter and remote meter provides detailed operating data, alarms and faults
• Three LED’s display system status
• Up to 200 days of data logging via meters or communications ports
