Outback FLEXmax 60 MPPT Charge Controller, 12/24/36/48/54/60V

Price: $699.00

The FLEXmax 60 raises the bar for high performance solar controllers. OutBacks ingenuity and engineering experience has been combined to maximize the output power of your expensive solar array. Our real time active Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) system ensures that your solar array is operating at its peak power point regardless of age, shading or environmental conditions. Systems with large solar arrays are now a snap thanks to the FLEXmax 60 amp
DC output current rating for 12, 24 or 48 VDC systems - all with just one product model!

Real wiring flexibility of your solar array is finally here because of the FLEXmax 60 wide range DC input, up to 150 VOC. The ability to step-down a high voltage solar array to a low voltage battery can save you money by reducing the size of wire required and making the installation simpler and faster. Our smart multistage recharging process ensures your batteries are recharged efficiently and gently to prolong battery life and achieves the highest possible performance.

All of the FLEXmax 60 status information is displayed on the large built-in 3.1" (8 cm) backlit LCD screen. Monitoring your solar arrays performance is easy because of included data logging system that automatically records the last 64 days of system operation. OutBacks network communication system allows your MX60 to communicate with the rest of your OutBack system, eliminating multiple product interaction problems and allowing remote monitoring via the OutBack MATE display up to 1000 feet / 300 meters away.
