Can the Morningstar TS-60 Charge Controller handle 2800 watts of solar going in to my 12V battery bank?
Posted by Frank Molina, Stellavolta on Oct 17th 2022
In theory yes, however it requires running the TS-60 at the full 60A rating, which can be difficult to achieve. The difference with the PWMs are...1. you cannot oversize the array. The array current M
