TriStar MPPT Charge Controllers
Morningstar 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 TS MPPT 45/60 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.
Maximizes Energy Harvest - TrakStar MPPT Technology features:
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 arraysExcellent performance at sunrise and low solar insolation levels
Extremely High Reliability
Robust thermal design and no cooling fan
Parallel circuit design provides less stress and longer life for electronic component
No mechanical relay
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 losse
Continuous operation at full power to 45°C without need to de-rate

Thank you very much for your Morningstar controller both the tristar TS-60 and the Tristar TS-60 MPPT. I was a very fast delivery. Good connection with the supplyer . It was simple to set up and a very good instruction book follow, and you could check what you have done with you-tube. There have not been no problem. Kjell Olav Haukelid on 18th Feb 2017
The shipping was fast and product undamaged from shipping.
Very nice controller and comes with battery temp sensor. Product is very well made and heat sink is large. Power consumption is very little from the controller to operate. Easy set up and highly customizable charge settings. Unknown on 1st Apr 2015
