My shipment arrived on time, as predicted. Very, very good performance by EcoDirect. What more could you ask for from an online material supplier? Looks like the quantity from Quick Mount is spot on & the rails were bundled safely. EcoDirect will be my recommended source to my friends & neighbors for solar.

Description Datasheet

MorningStar Remote Temperature Sensor (RTS)

Manufacturer Part Number: RTS

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.

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 5C (9F) 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.

4 of 5 Good service. Poor Choice of shipping November 2, 2016
Reviewer: Todd Hawley from Morgantown, WV United States  
All elements of my experience with Ecodirect were good. However, since fed ex is grossly incompetent for residential delivery, I would like to see USPS and/or UPS shipping options. Otherwise I was satisfied.
