Tristar Controller Settings

Here you can see the PIN settings on the Tristar 45A and 60A Charge controllers when used in Diversion modes. 

  • For a 12V system, the point at which excess power is sent to the dump load is set at 14.6V. 
  • For a 24V system, it's 29.2V.
  • For a 48V system, it's 58.4V. 

Below is a video which shows how to configure the Tristar.
