"I wanted to let you know I am very pleased with the service you gave & the quality & condition of the solar panels I received from EcoDirect. I will purchase more items in the future from EcoDirect and will be sure to tell others about your fine operation."

Thanks,
Maurice
"Thanks EcoDirect! My solar system is up and running; waiting for City and San Diego Gas & Electric inspections this week; so far so good!"

"I enjoyed ordering what I needed. It was simple and fast, no issues what so ever. If I need something else and its at a good price, I will defiantly order from here again. Also the shipping is at a good price."

- Simon
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.
- Thank you, Jim Lake

  • Use with Tristar or other systems
  • Provides voltage alarm, load control and generator start
  • Cost effective
  • High reliability
  • Fully programmable
  • Advanced generator control
  • Industrial design
  • LED indicators

Detailed Description

Connected to a TriStar Controller

Battery voltage, charge/load current, battery temperature, TriStar heatsink temperature, PWM duty cycle, PV/load voltage, and all TriStar alarms or faults.

Used in Systems with Other Controllers

Battery voltage, Relay Driver temperature, input voltages from other sources.

Cost Effective

The four channels provide up to four high level system control functions at a lower cost compared to other alarm and generator start packages.

High Reliability

Each channel has complete electronic protections for high reliability.

Flexibility

The system designer may choose the exact relay needed for each application including a wide range of current ratings and solid state, mechanical or mercury displacement relays.

Fully Programmable

It is easy to program the Relay Driver with the included PC software via serial RS-232 port connection. Data is stored in non-volatile memory. The Relay Driver is pre-programmed with four commonly used settings.

Advanced Generator Control

Provides flexible parameters to control one, two or three-wire generator schemes and complete control of preheat, crank, ignition and cool-down.

Industrial Design

Each relay driver output may be controlled directly by MODBUS commands via the RS-232 for use with PLC’s and other industrial hardware. Mounts to a DIN rail or a flat surface.

LED Indicators

Displays power and status of each channel as well as faults and data sampling intervals.
