The controller is a three-function controller that provides reliable solar battery charging, load control or diversion regulation. This controller operates in only one of these modes at a time but two or more controllers may be used to provide multiple functions.
Uses advanced technology and automated production to provide exciting new features at a competitive cost
The controller is UL listed and is designed for both solar home systems and professional applications
The digital meter option displays self-test results, system information and controller setpoints. Remote temperature sensor option rated from -30° C (-22° F) to +80° C (+176° F). White power-coated steel, indoor rated, vertical mounting enclosure.
Did you know that the TriStar Controller offers these advantages?
The TriStar 60 operates at 12V to 48V. Similar 60 amp controllers only operate at 12V & 24V.
The TriStar has a 5-year warranty. Similar controllers have a 2-year warranty.
The TriStar's code allowable wire size is larger (2 AWG/35mm2) and has more wire bending room. Similar controllers allowable wire size is only 6 AWG (16mm2) and have very little wire bending room.
The TriStar's printed circuit board is conformally coated for protection against humidity and nesting insects - ideal for tropical and marine environments. Similar controllers do not have this protection.
The TriStar comes standard with an RS-232 comm port for custom setpoints, data loggong and remote monitoring. Similar controllers do not have an RS-232.
The TriStar fits on a power panel and the conduit knockouts align with commonly used DC disconnects
Standard model switch selectable for 12/24V or 48V battery
Choice of 7 regulation or LVD setpoints. Conduit-ready enclosure for large wire sizes.
RS-232 comm port provides custom setpoints. Self test runs continuously.
