Outback Communications Controller for FlexWare, Black Oval Case, MATE-B
The OutBack MATE is a complete system controller and display for both
the OutBack FX2000 inverter/charger 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 FX2000
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 time 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.Spec Sheet
