 Product Description

Morningstar TriStar 60A MPPT Charge Controller - TS-MPPT-60M

Morningstar, TriStar MPPT 60 A charge controller with meter display, TS-MPPT-60M

Morningstar’s TriStar TS-MPPT-60M solar charge 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 Morningstar TS-MPPT-60M comes with the digital meter display installed from the factory.

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.


  • 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.
  • 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.
