Morningstar TriStar MPPT 30, MPPT Charge Controller, 30 amp, 12, 24, 36, 48 Volt, w/remote sensor, TS-MPPT-45
Morningstar’s TriStar TS-MPPT-30 solar controller with TrakStar Technology are advanced maximum power point tracking (MPPT) battery chargers for photovoltaic (PV) systems up to 1724w on a 48v battery bank. The TS-MPPT-30 controllers can be used with arrays with a maximum open circuit voltage of 150 VDC and charge batteries between 8 and 72 VDC. A remote temperature sensor is included.
The 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. The chassis on the TriStar TS-MPPT controllers is isolated from the power circuits, allowing use in both negative and positive grounded systems.
Extensive Networking and Communications Capabilities enables system monitoring, data logging and adjustability. Both models offer open standard MODBUS protocol and Morningstar’s MS View software, Meterbus communications between compatible Morningstar products, and allow Serial RS-232 connection to a personal computer. The TS-MPPT-60 has RS-485 communications between multiple devices on a bus and has a fully web-enabled interface to a local network or internet; you can view data from a web browser and send email/text messages. Weight: 9.2 lbs. Dimensions are 11.4 x 5.1 x 5.6 inches. 5-year warranty. ETL Listed to UL 1741.
Morningstar’s MeterHub (HUB-1) allows multiple Morningstar products to communicate over a Meterbus network to provide improved data monitoring, additional capabilities and lower system cost. It enables multiple controllers to share a single TriStar meter and display both single controller data (TriStar #1, TriStar #2…) as well as aggregated data for the entire system. HUB-1 enables multiple controllers to share a single Relay Driver and fully utilize all 4 channels of the Relay Driver for different functions (alarms, load disconnects, generator starts) from multiple products. See page 136 for Relay Driver.
The RSC-1 communications adapter enables networking capability by converting a controller or inverter’s RS-232 port to a standard RS-485 serial connector. The RSC-1 may be used with any Morningstar controller or inverter equipped with an RS-232 port.
