Description

The MorningStar ProStar PS-30 PWM, also known as the latest generation of controllers, boasts an enviable build quality and the familiar form from its predecessors, but has been updated with new data and lighting control capabilities, more advanced protection features, and a new graphical interface to perform for even the most demanding off-grid solar applications. The MorningStar ProStar PS-30 PWM charge controller has been the leading mid-range pulse width modulation (PWM) controller since 1995. With over 350,000 units installed in the harshest environments in over 100 countries, ProStar sets the standards in performance and reliability for the rest of the solar industry.

The Third Generation Design Features

The Generation 3 ProStar shares the outstanding build quality and familiar form factor of its predecessors and adds data and lighting control capabilities, a graphical interface, and advanced protection features that meet the needs of today’s most demanding off-grid solar applications. ProStar provides both “the legend and the latest” in a single new product.

  • Fanless design for long-term reliability
  • Three battery-level LED indicators that can be combined with an optional meter that includes safety disconnect and displays amps, volts, temperature, and self-test
  • Longer battery life through 4-stage charging and temperature compensation. Voltage-sense terminals allow for more accurate battery monitoring. Also offers constant voltage PWM series regulation.
