TriStar MPPT 60 w/ optional meter.

The TS-MPPT-60 charge controller uses TrakStar technology for efficient and reliable solar battery charging.

The Morningstar TriStar MPPT 60 charge controller provides 60 amps on an up to 150 volt open circuit input. This TriStar MPPT solar charge controller with TrakStar technology is an advanced maximum power point tracking (MPPT) solar battery charger for off-grid solar systems up to 3kW.

The Morningstar TriStar MPPT solar charge 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.
