MPPT Controllers

Morningstar’s MPPT solar controllers with TrakStar™ Technology are advanced maximum power point tracking (MPPT) battery chargers for off-grid PV systems. TrakStar MPPT harvests power from the peak power point of the solar array, converts the power down to battery voltage, and boosts charging current in the process. Solar array sizing may be done in watts since all of the solar power is utilized. Morningstar’s advanced MPPT controllers will maximize the energy harvest from the solar array and lower solar system costs.

SunSaver MPPT

SunSaver MPPT

The SunSaver MPPT is well suited for both professional and consumer PV applications including automatic lighting control. Its charging process has been optimized for long battery life and improved system performance. This prod- uct is epoxy encapsulated for environmental protection, may be adjusted by the user via four settings switches or connection to a personal computer, and has an optional remote meter and battery temperature sensor.

The SunSaver MPPT has an optional remote meter and remote temperature sensor.
