The OutBack MX60 Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) charge controller enables your PV system to achieve its highest possible performance. Rated for up to 60 amps of DC output current, the OutBack MX60 can be used with battery systems from 12 to 60 VDC with PV open circuit voltage as high as 125 VDC.
The MX60’s setpoints are fully adjustable to allow use with virtually any battery type, chemistry and charging profile.
The OutBack MX60 allows you to use a higher output voltage PV array with a lower voltage battery – such as charging a 24 VDC battery with a 48 VDC PV array. This reduces wire size and power loss from the PV array to the battery/inverter location and can maximize the performance of your PV system.
The OutBack MX60 comes standard with an easy to use and understand display of the PV system’s performance. The four line, 80 character, backlit LCD display is also used for programming and monitoring of the system’s operation.
The OutBack MX60 can also be connected to the OutBack MATE system controller and display to allow monitoring of up to eight MX60 controllers from a distant location – up to 300 feet away. The MATE also includes an opto-isolated RS232 port for connection to a PC computer for data logging and system monitoring.
