Rated for up to 60 amps of DC current, the Outback MX60 can be used with battery systems from 12 to 60VDC with PV open-circuit voltage as high as 140VDC. 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 12 to 24VDC battery with a 48VDC 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. Array size can be up to 707 watts when charging a 12V battery, 1500 watts when charging at 24V and 3000W when charging at 24V.
The Outback MX60 comes standard with an easy-to-use display of the PV system's performance. The 4 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 optoisolated RS232 port for connection to a PC computer for data logging and system monitoring.
