Advanced System Display and Controller

The new MATE3 System Display and Controller makes it easier than ever to program and monitor your complete OutBack Power system. An intuitive user interface and integrated system configuration wizard make system setup and programming quick and seamless. The ability to set unique multi-level user passwords allows you to secure critical system settings from unintended changes while still allowing open access to necessary functions. Through the use of a single MATE3 you can remotely manage and monitor multiple inverter/chargers, charge controllers and DC monitoring devices.

The MATE3 is packed full of features to make system management simple. The easy-to-read graphical LCD display is backlit for dark operating conditions. Improved tactile buttons and a user programmable “favorite” key give you immediate access to the features you want, while an intuitive scroll wheel interface allows for easy adjustment of system setpoints. Expandable SD card memory allows you to increase data logging capacity as well as upgrade units in the field.

A built-in clock and calendar function enables timer-based programming of inverter and charger operation. This permits you to set the system to work with time-of-day power rates or to limit a generator’s run time to a specific time period of the day or week. All of your settings are stored in permanent memory to eliminate the need to reprogram in the event of a system shutdown or battery replacement. The MATE3 is an Internet enabled device - simply connecting to the Internet will allow full remote system monitoring via an easy-to-use web interface.
