Morningstar PS30 Prostar 30 Charge Controller

The ProStar solar charge controller has been the leading mid-range pulse width modulation (PWM) controller since 1995. With over 350,000 units installed in the harshest environments in over 100 countries, the ProStar has developed a strong reputation for reliable performance. This third generation ProStar maintains the same quality and form factor as previous models, while offering new data, lighting control, graphical interface, and protection features to better meet the needs of off-grid solar applications.

  • Adds new features and protections using highly advanced technology
  • Provides longer battery life and improved system performance
  • Sets new standards for reliability and self-diagostics
  • Warranty: 5 years
