How to Set Up a TriStar PWM Charge Controller to be used with a LiFePO4 Battle Born Batteries
Setting up your Tristar PWM controller to work with Battle Born Batteries is a cinch!
Just follow the steps outlined below.
Remove the access cover. This is the front cover on the unit that is held in with four screws.
Adjust the first three DIP switches.
The first three DIP switches are related to the system voltage. Use the Table 1 below to configure the first three DIP switches. We do not recommend that you use the “Auto” setting because variations in battery charge levels and connected loads can cause unwanted errors.

Set the remaining DIP switches to the following:
Note: Do not connect the RTS cable and never set the unit into equalization mode.
Before continuing to Step 4, disconnect the positive and negative wires.
Remove your solar cables from the charge controller. Careful, these are live wires and could weld themselves to another metallic object if it comes in contact.
Remove your cables that connect the controller to your Battle Born Batteries.
Allow your controller 15-20 seconds to re-calibrate to your updated settings.
Reconnect your battery cables
Reconnect your solar cables to the charge controller. Your solar controller has now been configured for BBB’s.
