Description

Overview

The innovative FLEXmax Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) software algorithm is both continuous and active, increasing your photo-voltaic array power yield up to 30% compared to non-MPPT controllers.
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), thanks to active cooling and intelligent thermal management cooling.

Included in all of the FLEXmax Charge Controllers are the revolutionary  features, 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.
