Description

Also comes pre-installed on Pre-built Power Centers. Pricing varies.

The FM80 is the latest innovation in Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) charge controllers from OutBack Power Systems. The FLEXmax 80’s innovative MPPT algorithm is both continuous and active, increasing your renewable energy yield up to 30%. Thanks to enhanced cooling, the FLEXmax 80 can operate at its full 80 amp maximum current rating in ambient temperatures as high as 104°F (40°C).

Included in the FLEXmax 80 are all of the features first developed by OutBack Power in the revolutionary MX60, such as support for a wide range of nominal battery voltages and the ability to step-down a high voltage solar array to recharge a low voltage battery. A built-in backlit display shows status information at the touch of a button.

Enhanced network communications allow the FLEXmax 80 to be remotely programmed via the optional MATE system display and controller. The new FLEXmax 80 is the only choice when you demand a high performance, efficient and customizable charge controller for your advanced power system.

See OUTBACK POWER INVERTER ACCESSORIES, including stacking kits for 2 & 4 inverters, remote temperature sensors, Mates, and Hub Communications Managers. 

An Outback "Mate" system controller can operate and monitor up to 8 Outback inverters and 8 60 amp Outback solar controllers creating a versatile and powerful solar system "brain".

About Outback Power

Key Points:

  • Extended warranty, not offered by competitors
  • A trusted name in the renewable energy field, with a solid foundation in engineering
  • World-class customer service and technical support

Headquartered out of Arlington, Washington, OutBack Power was founded in 2001 by a small group of passionate engineers. The small startup quickly earned a reputable foundation by listening to their customers and incorporating many of the changes that were suggested, truly establishing a customer focused company. Today, they are a trusted name in the renewable energy field, offering a vast selection of innovative products that were exclusively pioneered by OutBack Power. Their product line includes off grid inverters, grid-tie inverters with battery backup, maximum power point tracking (MPPT) charge controllers, and communications/network products, along with a wide range of integration and safety hardware. Outpacing many of their competitors, OutBack Power offers an extended warranty option on many of their inverters.

OutBack Power is constantly expanding their industry leading level of customer service with dedicated, direct dial, tech support lines as well as an online "live-chat" service. As a distributor for OutBack Power products, Wholesale Solar is an integral part of the high level of support that customers have come to expect from OutBack Power.

OutBack Power is highly known for providing rugged inverters and charge controllers designed to survive in environments that would normally destroy other inverter/chargers. The FX series of sealed inverter/chargers comes with some of the most rugged features one can find on sealed systems. Some of these features include die-cast aluminum chassis with a powder-coated finish to prevent corrosion, generous use of gaskets and O-ring seals to keep water and small particles out, and a protective conformal coating on all circuit boards. The externally mounted "turbo" cooling system will keep your FX series inverter/charger running at peak performance in high heat conditions.

The FLEXnet ™ DC system has been leading the way in DC system monitoring devices. Integrated networked data from your system easily allows you to stay in constant touch with your system's level of performance and efficiency. The FLEXnet™ DC module seamlessly conforms to either the FW500-DC or the FW1000-DC enclosures, and can easily monitor up to three shunts.

OutBack Power also offers grid-interactive versions of their inverter/chargers, which come in either sealed (GTFX) or vented (GVFX) models, allowing you to sell solar, wind, and/or hydro power back to the utility grid. Utilizing a built-in 60A transfer switch, AC power is seamlessly switched between utility and battery power. For 120/240V power output configurations, the G series can easily be combined or "stacked". Back to Top
