 Product Description

Morningstar 25A MPPT Charge Controller - TriStar - TS-MPPT-60-600V-48-DB-TR-GFPD

Morningstar, TriStar MPPT ROW Charge Controller, 60A, 600V, 48VDC, includes RTS and grounded Disconnect box, With DC Transfer Switch, and pre-wired GFPD-600V, TS-MPPT-60-600V-48-DB-TR-GFPD

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.


  • High Voltage Capacity & Energy Harvest - Maximum input voltage of 600V. Operates with PV array Voc voltages up to 525 Voc,Wind, hydro operating voltages up to 500 Vdc. Pre-set for 48 Vdc battery systems. Programmable for 24V, 36V and 60V battery systems. Allows long wire runs from the array to the controller. Higher voltage reduces voltage drop and wire costs. No combiner boxes required for single or two string systems. Better enables grid-tie PV systems with battery back-up. Enables easier PV array expansion than lower voltage systems and accommodates increasing loads. Supports battery based solar PV, wind, hydro and other high voltage DC power systems. Better peak power point tracking than other MPPT charge controllers. Very fast sweeping of the entire PV array. Recognition of multiple power points during shading or mixed PV arrays. Low input voltage operation. Excellent performance at sunrise and low solar insolation levels.
  • High Reliability & Efficiency - Robust thermal design and no cooling fans. No moving parts. Superior lightning protection from nearby lightning induced voltage/current spikes. Extensive electronic protections. Epoxy encapsulated inductors and con-formally coated printed circuit boards. 97.9% peak efficiency. Proprietary tracking algorithm minimizes power losses. Low self-consumption. Continuous operation at full power to 45°C ambient
    temperatures without need to de-rate. Electronic devices with higher ratings to minimize losses from heating.
  • Capabilities & Additional Features - Enables system monitoring, data logging and adjust-ability. Uses open standard MODBUS protocol and Morningstar’s MS View software. Meterbus: Communications between compatible Morningstar products. Serial RS-232 and EIA-485 serial connectivity. Ethernet: fully web-enabled interface to a local network or internet; view from a web browser or send email. High-Low voltage barrier improves safety. Available with optional Disconnect Box: 600V PV disconnect switch, battery breaker and prewired input/output bus bars. Available with DC Transfer Switch option for switching from a GT string inverter to battery backup charging during a utility outage. Multiple controllers and GFPDs may be added later, on an as-needed basis.
