    Morningstar SunSaver Gen3 Charge Controllers

    Morningstar is pleased to introduce our third generation SunSaver. Since its first market introduction in 1996, over 1 million SunSaver controllers have been installed in over 73 countries for numerous solar power systems including oil/gas, telecom and instrumentation, marine and boating, and remote homes. We have retained much of our legacy design including the same ratings, footprint and simple user interface, and have added several new and advanced high value features:
    •Full electronic protections
    •4 stage battery charging
    •Self-diagnostics to detect critical faults
    •Multi-color status LED
    •3 LED’s for battery state of charge
    •Dead battery recovery
    •Telecom mode for sensitive loads
    •Maximum charge limiting for sensitive loads
    •Cover to protect wire terminals
    •Additional certifications


    Extremely High Reliability
    •Failure rate of less than 1 per 1,000 shipped (<0.1%)
    •100% solid state. Power MOSFET design
    •Manufactured in an ISO 9000 factory
    •100% pre-shipment functional testing

    Longer Battery Life
    •Advanced PWM charging
    •Series design (not shunt) for cool operation
    •4-stage charging: bulk, absorption, float, equalize
    •Optimized sealed or flooded battery set points
    •Temperature compensated charging
    •Low voltage load disconnect on several versions

    Designed for Harsh Environments
    •Temperature rating of –40°C to +60°C
    •Epoxy encapsulation for protection against humidity and dust ingress
    •Corrosion protection: marine rated terminals and anodized aluminum case
    •Certified for use in hazardous locations

    Easy to Install and Use
    •Factory pre-sets result in no required install settings
    •Electronic protections prevent damage from wiring mistakes
    •Fully automatic operation and fault recovery
    •LED’s display extensive information about status, faults and battery condition

    Morningstar’s SunSaver™ is the world’s leading small solar controller for both professional and consumer applications including standard features and capabilities not found in any other small PV controller.
