We have created some diagrams to help make your installation simple. Just select which type of installation you want from the list below.
With larger setups you will have multiple parallel banks of panels into 1 controller. When putting panels in series ensure you do not go over the max Open Circuit voltage for the MPPT controller you are using. Most of them are 150V. Most panels you can run with 3 in series, Our 120W panels you can put upto 5 in series, and our CIS low light panels you have to run all in parallel.
Using our Outback equipment you can create an off-grid/on-grid hybrid system allowing you to use your solar and battery power when it is available and seamlessly switching to using the grid power if your solar is running low. It will automatically switch back to the battery power again when the solar has charged it up again. This will mean that you will never run out of power and you will have the minium bills from the grid as you will only ever use it when essential. If you use the GVFX or GVF outback grid inverters then you can also sell the power back into the grid as well. You can configure the set points for this in the Mate controller.
