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 Outback’s Radian and FXR series of inverters. Use the Mate3 remote for any FXR or Radian inverter.

About Outback Power

Founded in 2001 by three engineers with a long history of developing technologies for renewable energy applications, OutBack’s founders believed that the renewable energy industry was on the verge of unparalleled growth, driven by the emerging need for sustainable alternative sources of energy.

OutBack initially designed and manufactured integration hardware used by solar installers to house and protect power electronics installed in remote environments and harsh condition locations around the world. Soon the company launched an advanced line of rugged inverter products that delivered pure sinewave power for off-grid residential and commercial installations, ultimately expanding its offering to include off-grid inverters with battery backup, grid-tie inverters with battery backup, Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) charge controllers, communications products and a complete line of OutBack EnergyCell batteries designed specifically for renewable energy applications. Over that time, they forged a reputation as the recognized leader in the design and manufacture of battery-based, off-grid renewable energy systems.

17 years later, they continue to lead the way with advanced off-grid and grid-interactive battery-based renewable energy systems, the fully UL 1741 SA listed Radian Series and FXR Series inverter/chargers and their SystemEdge packages that bundle the right combination of energy storage and power electronics, merging energy independence with smart home technology for a range of common applications.

OutBack is also a member of The Alpha Group -- a global alliance of independent companies that share a common philosophy of creating world-class powering solutions for the renewable energy, communication, commercial and industrial markets. Bottom line: If you are installing or upgrading to a battery-based renewable energy system, the Solar + Energy Storage Experts at OutBack Power are the only choice.
