We also recommend this slightly more economical regulator to systems with more than 500 Watt panel capacity. The Outback FlexMax series is one of the most sophisticated regulators available, and yet it is very simple to operate. We provide custom charge values for our clients. Depending on season we can tweak this unit to surpass the standard yield of your solar system with a lot of added power production. We offer programming support and alerting e-mails or phone calls, when it is time to set your device for summer or winter settings.
Apart from the larger Amp capacity this unit supports important battery maintenance functions such as Equalization and variable float voltage values. These functions are easily accessible on the front display via 4 keys. Techniques are discussed under ” Why equalization of batteries is important”
We provide this upper-end regulator because of the ease of operation. Further The Outback FlexMax series is updated with new charge algorithms. which clearly shows in your daily logs of power production. This unit rocks!
The history option logs your production up to 128 days, which makes it easy to consult your system and analyse any problems if such occurs. Again we are often able to save you the cost of a maintenance/service call by guiding you over the telephone to access the menus and set things right. This, of course is free of charge. The unit is fitted with a large cooling fan and ribs at the top, which enables the FlexMax to operate flawlessly at ambient temperatures as high as 40 degrees Celsius. This is important in our hot summer months.
The Outback Solar Charge Controller is a photovoltaic (PV) charge controller that tracks the electrical maximum power point of a PV array to deliver the maximum available current for charging batteries. The FM series can be used with 12, 24, 36, 48, and 60-volt DC battery systems.
