Morningstar TS-60 PWM Solar Charge Controller

The TriStar PWM Controllers from Morningstar are three-function, programmable controllers that provide reliable solar battery charging, diversion regulation, and load control. These controllers operate in one of these modes at a time; two or more controllers may be used to provide multiple functions.

The TriStar series uses advanced technology and automated production to provide substantial new features at a competitive cost. The optional TriStar meter is the most sophisticated and informative controller meter on the market.

Morningstar TS-60 PWM Solar Charge Controller Features

  • Fully Adjustable. DIP switch provides user with a choice of 7 different digital presets and custom settings via RS-232.
  • More Power. Ratings to 60A at 48VDC will handle solar arrays up to 4kW.
  • Communications Capability. RS-232 connects to a personal computer for customized settings, data logging, and remote monitoring and control.
  • Simple Mechanical Interface. Larger power terminals and conduit knockouts. Extra space for wire turns. Fits on power panels.
  • Easy to Reset. Pushbutton provides manual reset and stop/start battery equalization or load disconnect.
  • Better Battery Charging. Connecting battery sense wires and optional remote temperature sensor will improve control accuracy. Constant voltage series PWM algorithm increases battery capacity and life.
  • Low Telecom Noise. DIP switch setting will change PWM to “On-Off” battery charging.
  • More Information. 3 LEDs to indicate status, faults, and alarms. Optional meter displays extensive system and controller information, automatic self-test, and reset capabilities. Meter connection via RJ-11 phone jack.
  • High Reliability. Large heat sink and conservative design enables operating at full ratings to 140° F.
