Fault Reseting Morningstar TriStar MPPT-45
I looked back to a thread in 2011 about resetting the TriStar MPPT-45 and it seems that the way to do it is 1) disconnect panel input (or wait for night), 2) disconnect postitive battery connection rendering the controller electrically isolated. OK, I did that. And when the positive was reconnected the remote meter was cleared of it's fault message. Got it.
Because of the physical confines of our installation the above is difficult. This installation is on a sailboat. The controller and wires are difficult to access. We have two panels mounted horizontally and two mounted on side rails which we remove during hurricane preparations. When the two panels are disconnected the TriStar goes to fault. Reconnecting the panels does not clear the fault. This necessitates the above procedure.
Is there a simpler way to be able to remove two of four panels, reconnect panels and avoid the above?
