Morningstar TriStar TS-45, PWM Solar Charge Controller, 45 Amp, 12v, 24v, 48v No Display

The TriStar pulse width modulated (PWM) controller can operate as a solar charge controller, a load controller, or a diversion regulator in 12-, 24- or 48-volt systems. It can operate in only one of these modes at a time, but two or more controllers can be used to provide multiple functions. PWM operation may be changed to on/off operation to prevent telecom noise.

Two models are available with UL current ratings of 45 and 60 amps. A choice of 7 different set points are easily selectable with DIP switches. An RS-232 communications enables PC connection to adjust control set points and data logging. An optional digital display may be mounted on the front of the controller or up to 100 feet away using 4-conductor phone cable with RJ11 jacks.

Battery temperature compensation may be added with the optional temperature sensor. Knock-outs on the bottom of the charge controller match knock-out spacing on MPPT controllers, allowing easy mounting to available power system components.

Dimensions: 10.25" H x 5" W x 2.8" D; weight is 3.5 lbs. 5-year warranty. UL Listed for U.S. and Canada.
