OutBack Power Remote Monitor & Control (MATE)
The MATE system display and controllers are great tools for managing your OutBack Power system. With one single MATE you can remotely manage and monitor multiple inverter/chargers, FM60 & FM80 and any power conversion and control products you plan to add later.
The MATE and MATE2 are full of features to simply manage your system. The easy-to-read 3.1″ (8 cm) LCD is backlit for nighttime or dark operating conditions. Four soft keys allow easy navigation of menus and functions. Two hot keys give quick access to AC and inverter functions.
Built-in clock and calendar enable timer based programming of inverter and charger operation. You can set the system to work with time-of-day power rates or to limit the generator’s operation time to a specific time period of the day or week. All of your settings are stored in permanent memory, eliminating the need to reprogram in the event of a system shutdown or battery replacement.
The MATE and MATE2 include a RS232 port with DB9 jack to connect to the serial port of a PC computer. With optional software you can perform such operations as data logging and graphical display of the system’s operation and performance. The MATE system display and controller are surface mounted while the MATE2 can be flush mounted in a wall cut-out.
The Outback Mate remote is not compatible with Outbacks Radian and FXR series of inverters. Use the Mate3 remote for any FXR or Radian inverter.
