Product Overview

Morningstar PS-15M GEN3 PWM Charge Controller w/Meter-Display

The ProStar Gen3 controllers provide continuous self-diagnostics, monitoring, and reporting of any errors through its status LED’s, optional display or communication port. Electronic error protections prevent damage when installation mistakes or system faults occur. Protected from overload, short-circuit, high voltage warning, reverse polarity, high temperature, and nighttime reverse current on the PV input side, and overload, short-circuit, high temperature, and reverse polarity on the load side. They are also protected from battery reverse polarity.

The new ProStar Gen3 PWM charge controllers are Morningstar's third generation of their highly reliable mid-range PWM solar charge controllers for residential, mobile, or stand-alone power and lighting systems. They feature conformally a coated circuit board, corrosion-resistant terminals, and automatic battery select for 12 and 24 VDC systems. 4-stage charging for Bulk, Absorption, Float, and Equalizing, with 7 standard battery settings, or custom settings can be programmed in. Full nameplate current rating, both PV and load, up to 60 C continuous.
