 Product Description

Morningstar 60A MPPT Charge Controller - TriStar MPPT TS-MPPT-600-600V-48

Morningstar, TriStar MPPT Charge Controller, 60A, 600V, TS-MPPT-60-600V-48

Morningstar’s TriStar MPPT 600V charge controller (TS-MPPT-60-600V-48-DB) is a brand new addition to our world-leading TriStar MPPT solar controller family, which was first introduced in 2009 and has become the MPPT controller of choice for many large, global, off-grid PV applications. The TS-MPPT-600V leverages Morningstar’s innovative TrakStar MPPT technology and our 20+ years of power electronics engineering excellence, to deliver the widest PV input operating voltage range available in a PV controller. Morningstar’s TrakStar MPPT technology enables the TriStar MPPT 600V charge controller to harvest the maximum energy from the solar array or wind turbine. The high-speed sweeping algorithm minimizes power loss and provides full visibility of the entire power curve from open circuit to battery voltage; ensuring the maximum power point is chosen under all ambient conditions.

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.


  • 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 isolation 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.
  • Highly Efficient - 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.
  • Networking & Communications - 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.
