Relay Driver

Morningstar’s new Relay Driver provides high level system control functions(such as high/low voltage alarms, load control and generator start) at a lower cost than other alarm and generator start packages.Morningstar Relay Driver

* One or more of Morningstar’s TriStar controllers coupled with the Relay Driver will control hundreds of amps at 12-48VDC with sophisticated features at a much lower cost than comparable large PV controllers. The Relay Driver will read the digital data inputs from the TriStar.

* In systems using other controllers, the Relay Driver will provide similar functionality based on battery voltage or input voltages from other sources.

* The Relay Driver controls four independent relay driver outputs for high/low alarm contacts, generator start functions, load control, temperature control settings and auxiliary AC backup charge control.

* The Relay Driver may be mounted to a DIN rail and is fully programmable with the included PC software via serial RS-232 port connection. Data is stored in non-volatile memory.

* In external slave mode, the Relay Driver can be controlled via the RS-232 serial connection by any MODBUS compatible device, local or remote.

* See Application Guide below in Multimedia section for specifics on how to use in various applications.

Excellent tool!

This 4 channel processor works great.
Can control many relays as more relay can be connected

via old serial RS 232 port. If Ur laptop does not have such
get a USB-serial converter cable. They are cheap. Brand Tripp-lite wor...

Exceeded my expectations

Calling this product a relay driver is, in my opinion, a mistake. The name implies that it simply amplifies a weak signal in order to power a relay. The device is much more than that. It should be called a programmable logic module, or perhaps a 4-channel programmable voltage controlled switch. P...
