Morningstar Remote Temperature Sensor Probe

Remote temperature probe for use with the ProStar, TriStar, and all other Morningstar controllers that can use a battery temperature probe. For use with the ProStar the leads must be soldered to the circuit board, the TriStar is provided with a terminal strip for connection. See the manual (link below) for details. The RTS is compatible with: SunSaver MPPT™, SunKeeper™, SunSaver Duo™, ProStar™ The temperature probe is recommended whenever the temperature at the battery will be more than 5°C (9°F) different than the temperature at the controller. TriStar™ for battery charging or diversion control modes (not for load control mode) For maximum protection from harsh environments, the sensor is encapsulated in epoxy inside a power lug housing. The RTS is also protected from lightning surges and short circuits.

Do I need a Temperature Sensor? Maybe, but maybe not. If your batteries are at a different temperature than your controller (more than 10 degrees F - Morningstar recommends 5 degrees), then yes you probably should. For instance, if your controller is inside but your batteries are outside in the weather, the built-in temperature compensation would not be correct.

Temperature voltage compensation is mandatory for correct charging. Review by pdxr13

You can't have your controller in the same compartment as batteries due to corrosive gasses. The controller makes some heat of its own (small sub-1KG mass), thus is at a different temp from the batteries (large lead, hundreds of KG's mass). RTS is mandatory, as well as measuring/adjusting charge voltage at the battery terminals IAW battery mfg recommendation (if your model lacks "sense" terminal/wire). (Posted on September 12, 2016)
