I have used many of these MX 60 charge controllers. These devices are somewhat programmable and work very well. We have asked Outback for updates to this product and they have supported our efforts in increasing performance of the charging of batteries. They have worked for years without a problem. They do have a limit of 140 volts DC from the Solar Panels. But they do work well as a charge controller.
The MX60 raises the bar for high performance solar controllers. OutBack’s 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 MX60’s 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 MX60’s 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 MX60’s status information is displayed on the large built-in 3.1" (8 cm) backlit LCD screen. Monitoring your solar array’s performance is easy because of included data logging system that automatically records the last 64 days of system operation. OutBack’s 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.
