SYSTEM MANAGEMENT REMOTE MONITOR AND CONTROL MATE_B
The OutBack MATE_B is a complete system controller and display for both the OutBack FX2000 inverter/charger and MX60 MPPTPV charge controller. It provides a display of the operation as well as allows control and adjustment of the setpoints. The OutBack Mate also coordinates the operation of the entire system to maximize performance and to prevent multiple products from conflicting. Asingle OutBack MATE is able to connect to multiple FX2000 inverter/charges, MX60 MPPTPV charge controllers and any other OutBack power conversion and control products offered in the future. A maximum of ten OutBack products will be able to be connected to a single MATE-B via CAT5 / ethernet type cabling with 8 wire RJ45 modular connectors and the OutBack HUB communication manager. The OutBack MATEincludes a 4 line backlit LCD display with 80 alphanumeric characters. This allows multiple measurements to be displayed at the same time and reduces the amount of abbreviations required, simplifying the operation and reducing confusion. All of the programmed setpoints are stored in permanent memory to eliminate the need to reprogram the system after a shutdown or battery replacement. The OutBack MATEalso includes a built in real time clock and calendar which allows programming of the inverter operation based on the time of day and even day of the week. This can be used to allow the system to work with time-of-day power rates or to limit a generator's run time to a specific time period of the day or week. The OutBack MATE also includes an opto-isolated RS232 port with a DB9 jack for connection to the serial port of a PC computer. OutBack is working with several third party developers to offer Windows based software programs for datalogging and graphical display of the system’s operation and performance.
