OutBack Power Systems MATE Controller Review

The MATE system display and controllers are complete management tools for your OutBack Power system. Through the use of a single MATE you can remotely manage and monitor multiple inverter/chargers, MX60s and any future OutBack power conversion and control products.

The MATE and MATE2 are packed full of features to make system management simple. The easy-to-read LCD is backlit 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 generators 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 MATE and MATE2 include a 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 systems operation and performance.

If you own an OutBack Inverter then you should definitely have a MATE controller to set up and monitor your power system.

I have seen a few MATE's fail and stop functioning. Some didn't completely stop working, you could still change settings but you could not monitor any voltage our power output. Overall they are a necessity if you own an OutBack inverter though. The MATE is also available in black and as a surface or in wall mount as opposed to a surface mount.

MATE - Regular standard MATE controller\display White
MATE-B Regular standard MATE controller\display Black
MATE2 - Flush mount on wall MATE, Same functions and display as MATE

My Overall Rating 9\10
