FM60-FM80 OutBack Mppt ControllerOutBack FM60 and FM80 MPPT Charge Controller
These Maximum Power Point Tracking charge controllers enable your PV system to achieve its highest possible performance. They permit the use of a higher output voltage PV array with a lower battery voltage - such as charging a 24 VDC battery with a 48 VDC PV array. This reduces wire size and power loss from the PV array to the battery location while maximizing the system's performance. Rated for up to 80 A of DC output current, they can be used with battery systems from 12 to 60 VDC with a PV open circuit voltage as high as 150 Voc. The set points are fully adjustable to allow use with virtually any battery type, chemistry, and charging profile. The OutBack FM60 and FM80 come standard with an easy to use and understand display. The four line, 80 character, backlit LCD display is used for programming and monitoring of the system's operation including built-in data logging with 64 days of memory.

Power Rating

The lines on the graph represent the MidNIte Solar Classic Charge Controller output current at different Max Power Points Voltage (not VOC). To estimate the Max Power Point of your system; first you have to find out the VOC of the Photovoltaic strings connected to the Classic. For example If 5 Modules in series in one string and STC VOC rating is 36.6V, then the VOC of the string equals: 5(modules) * 36.6v(STC VOC) = 183V.

The rule of thumb says that the MPP will be around 80% of the string's VOC; 183v * 0.8 = 146.4v On the graph of the Classic model you have, the X axis represents the Battery Voltage and the Y axis is the Output current. Knowing that, go to the corresponding graph and look for the a line close to your system's MPP voltage and you can then determine the max output power for your system design.
