MPPT CHARGE CONTROLLERS

MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) charge controllers allow your solar modules to operate at their peak output voltage, improving their performance by as much as 30%. The controller harvests power from the solar array at the maximum voltage and converts it down to battery voltage, boosting charging current (Amps) in the process.

Maximum Power Point Tracking controllers are designed for use in larger solar module systems, where the modules are configured in long series strings to maximize voltage and amps output. Some models are designed solely for use with solar modules, while others can be used in solar, wind and hydro systems.

SunSaver SS-MPPT-15L

15amps at 12 or 24 Vdc

The SunSaver MPPT is an advanced maximum power point tracking solar battery charger and load controller for stand-alone solar power systems. The controller features a smart tracking algorithm that maximizes the energy from the solar modules and also provides load control to prevent over-discharge of the battery.The SS-MPPT battery charging process has been optimized for long battery life and improved system performance. Self-diagnostics and electronic error protection prevent damage when installation mistakes or system faults occur. The controller also features four  settings switches for adjustability, a meter port, and terminals for remote battery temperature measurement (optional).

TS-MPPT-60-600V-48-DB-TR-GFPD  Pre-wired with Ground Fault Protection Device

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.

The TriStar MPPT 600V charge controller’s high voltage capability and flexible design enable
several application scenarios including:

  • Off-grid PV systems greater than 150 Voc with long wire runs from the array to the controller

  • New installation grid-tie PV systems with battery back-up

  • Retrofitting string PV inverter systems to later add battery back-up without changing the PV array configuration

  • Battery-based Wind systems


Morningstar’s TriStar MPPT 600V Charge Controller can be used with higher voltage photovoltaic
(PV) arrays, wind turbines or hydropower systems. This product enables the following application
scenarios:

  • Adding modules incrementally with no string sizing issues

  • Off-grid PV, wind or hydro systems with input voltages greater than 150V

  • Fewer combined circuits and lower current for long wire runs from the array to the controller

  • New installation grid-tie PV systems with battery back-up

  • Retrofitting grid-tie PV systems to include battery back-up without changing the PV array configuration
