Setting up your Tristar PWM charge controller to work with Battle Born LiFEPO4 batteries is a cinch!

Step 1:

Remove the access cover. This is the front cover on the unit that is held in with four screws.

Step 2:

Adjust the first three DIP switches.

The first three DIP switches are related to the system voltage. Use 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.

4: OFF
5: ON
6: OFF

7: OFF

8: ON

Note: Do not connect the RTS cable and never set the unit into equalization mode.
