The Outback MX 60 has been replaced with the FM 60 which has the same specifications but is better integrated into the current FLEXware product line.

The MX60 is a Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) regulator, and is suitable for 12, 24 or 48 V batteries. With an output current of 60 amps, the MX60 is can work with higher voltage arrays - up to 140 VDC open circuit allowing the use of smaller gauge wire when the solar array is of a distance from the battery bank.

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.

Features:

  • High Operational Efficiency
  • Multi-stage charging including equalization
  • Backlit digital display for programming and monitoring performance
  • Standard 2 year warranty
  • Can reduce wiring losses by charging a 12/24 V battery from a 48-140V PV array.
  • Built in Data Logging - 64 day power production history stored in display
  • MPPT delivers more power from a solar array (up to 25%)
