OutBack Power, based out of Arlington, WA and founded in 2001, is an off-grid inverter manufacturer. By keeping their focus specifically on battery based systems, they have become a leader and innovator in this type of application. The MATE2 system display and controllers are complete management tools for your OutBack Power system. Through the use of a single MATE2 you can remotely manage and monitor multiple inverter/chargers, FLEXmax and any future OutBack power conversion and control products. The MATE2 is the same device as the MATE, but with a different case.
The MATE2 is packed full of features to make system management simple. The easy-to-read 3.1" (8 cm) LCD is back lit for dark operating conditions. Four soft keys allow easy context-based navigation of menus and functions. Two hot keys give immediate access to AC and inverter functions. 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 MATE2 includes an RS232 port with DB9 jack for connection to the serial port of a PC computer.
Through the use of optional WinVerter software you can perform such operations as data logging and graphical display of the system's operation and performance.
