Product Description

Outback MATE Remote Monitor and Control

The OutBack MATE is a complete system controller and display for both the OutBack inverter/chargers and MX60 MPPT PV charge controller. It provides a display of the operation as well as allows control and adjustment of the setpoints. The OutBack Mate also coordinates the operation of the entire system to maximize performance and to prevent multiple products from conflicting.

A single OutBack MATE is able to connect to multiple Outback inverter/charges, MX60 MPPT PV charge controllers and any other OutBack power conversion and control products offered in the future. A maximum of ten OutBack products will be able to be connected to a single MATE via CAT 5 / ethernet type cabling with 8 wire RJ45 modular connectors and the OutBack HUB communication manager.

The OutBack MATE includes a 4 line backlit LCD display with 80 alphanumeric characters. This allows multiple measurements to be displayed at the same time and reduces the amount of abbreviations required, simplifying the operation and reducing confusion. All of the programmed setpoints are stored in permanent memory to eliminate the need to reprogram the system after a shutdown or battery replacement.

The OutBack MATE also includes a built-in real-time clock and calendar which allows programming of the inverter operation based on the time of day and even day of the week. This can be used to allow the system to work with time-of-day power rates or to limit a generator's run time to a specific period of the day or week.

The OutBack MATE also includes an opto-isolated RS232 port with a DB9 jack for connection to the serial port of a PC computer.

OutBack is working with several third-party developers to offer Windows-based software programs for data logging and graphical display of the systems operation and performance. This PC computer software will be available separately and is expected soon.
