MPPT CHARGE CONTROLLERS
MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) charge controllers allow your solar modules to operate at their peak output voltage, improving their performance by as much as 30%. The controller harvests power from the solar array at the maximum voltage and converts it down to battery voltage, boosting charging current (Amps) in the process.
Maximum Power Point Tracking controllers are designed for use in larger solar module systems, where the modules are configured in long series strings to maximize voltage and amps output. Some models are designed solely for use with solar modules, while others can be used in solar, wind and hydro systems.
The OutBack FLEXmax Maximum Power Point Tracking Charge Controllers offer an efficient, safe, multi-stage recharging process that prolongs battery life and assures peak performance from a solar array. Each Charge Controller allows customized battery recharging.
The Charge Controller features include:-
80 amps maximum continuous output current up to 40°C without thermal derating for the FLEXmax 80 and 60 amps for the FLEXmax 60
Engineered to work with 12, 24, 36, 48, and 60VDC battery voltages
Backlit LCD display screen with 80 characters (4 lines, 20 characters per line)
Last 128 days of operational data are logged for review
Voltage step-down capability allowing a higher PV array voltage configuration
Manual and auto-equalise cycle
The FLEXmax Extreme’s advanced thermal engineering provides full power output from -20 to 45°C without requiring a cooling fan. Because the passively cooled unit can be sealed, circuit boards and other sensitive electronics can be fully protected from dust, dirt, insects, and other external sources of contamination. The FLEXmax Extreme Charge Controller can not only go anywhere, it can also get there faster by saving precious installation time. It is a fitting companion to OutBack’s renowned sealed FX inverter/charger line and demonstrates the company’s ongoing commitment to providing clean, reliable power anywhere it has the potential to transform lives.
