Outback Power Flexmax FM80-150VDC Mppt Charge Controller
- Free Shipping (Arrives in 3-4 weeks)
FLEXmax FM60 and FM80 controllers come standard with a four-line, 80-character backlit LCD screen that displays PV system performance with a 128-day history and can also be used for programming and monitoring system operation. Both controllers have a programmable AUX relay that can be used for control functions such as battery-enclosure fans, generator starting, or load control. The AUX output is 200 mA at 12 VDC.Use it to power a separate relay with a 12 VDC coil if you need to control more current or to control voltages (AC or DC) other than 12 VDC.
FLEXmax FM100-AFCI MPPT Charge Controller
OutBack Powers new FLEX max FM100-AFCI medium-voltage charge controller accepts higher voltages from PV arrays to allow for longer wire runs with reduced wire sizes. It can be used to charge 24 or 48 VDC battery systems from PV arrays with voltage up to 290 VDC, but can withstand voltages up to 300 VDC without damage. Output is rated at 100 A at 25C (with deration to 80 A at 40C), with four-stage charging and an operating temperature range of -20 C to +60 C. NEMA 3R design allows for outdoor installation.
The FM100-AFCI employs industry-leading technology to meet the most recent 2017 code compliance with regards to GFDI and AFCI detection and interruption, rapid shutdown, and related disconnecting means. Systems that use the FM100 AFCI require no additional GFDI or AFCI equipment. This makes it the most cost effective, easy to install, and low maintenance controller on the market for NEC 2014 and NEC 2017 compliant systems.Built-in AUX relay has a 12 VDC output of up to 250 mA.
- Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT)
- Active cooling and intelligent thermal management cooling
- Ambient temperatures as high as 104°F (40°C)
- Built-in, backlit 80 character display
- Integrated OutBack network communications
The FLEXmax family of charge controllers is the latest innovation in Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) charge controllers from OutBack Power. The innovative FLEXmax MPPT software algorithm is both continuous and active, increasing your photovoltaic array power yield up to 30% compared to non-MPPT controllers. Thanks to active cooling and intelligent thermal management cooling, both FLEXmax charge controllers can operate at their full maximum current rating, 60 Amps or 80 Amps respectively, in ambient temperatures as high as 104°F (40°C).
Included in all of the FLEXmax Charge Controllers are the revolutionary features first developed by OutBack Power, including support for a wide range of nominal battery voltages and the ability to step-down a higher voltage solar array to recharge a lower voltage battery bank. A built-in, backlit 80 character display shows the current status and logged system performance data for the last 128 days at the touch of a button. The integrated OutBack network communications allows FLEXmax series Charge Controllers to be remotely programmed and monitored via a MATE system display and provides unrivaled complete system integration.
FLEXmax MPPT Charge Controllers are the only choice when you demand a high performance, efficient and versatile charge controller for your advanced power system.
