OutBack FLEXmax FM60 and FM80 MPPT Charge Controllers

The FLEXmax MPPT software algorithm is both continuous and active, increasing your photovoltaic array power yield up to 30% compared to non-MPPT controllers.

FLEXmax charge controllers can operate at their full maximum current rating in ambient temperatures as high as 104°F (40°C). Both controllers can be used with battery systems from 12 to 60 VDC with PV open-circuit voltage as high as 150 VDC. The controller's set points are fully adjustable to allow use with virtually any battery type, chemistry and charging profile.
