Morningstar TriStar MPPTmorningstar tristar mppt

SOLAR CONTROLLER WITH MAXIMUM POWER POINT TRACKING

The Morningstar TriStar MPPT solar controller with TrakStar Technology TM is an advanced maximum power point tracking (MPPT) battery charger for off-grid photovoltaic (PV) systems up to 3kW. The controller provides the industry’ s highest peak efficiency of 99% and significantly less power loss compared to other MPPT controllers.

The Morningstar 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. This product is the first PV controller to include on-board Ethernet for a fully web-enabled interface and includes up to 200 days of data logging.
