OutBack Power Systems
Outback is a leading designer and manufacturer of power electronics for renewable energy applications including solar, wind, and micro-hydro as well as backup power and mobile power applications.
With an emphasis on product performance, OutBack has established itself as the product of choice in harsh environmental conditions for applications where product reliability and durability are paramount. Whether the application is a village micro-grid in the South Pacific, remote off-grid cabins in Alaska, or a suburban home in California, OutBack Power Systems has a solution that will reliably provide power when you need it.
OutBack inverter/chargers are the next generation in advanced power management. Each is a DC to AC sinewave inverter, battery charger and AC transfer switch housed within a tough die-cast aluminum chassis.
Just like the local utility grid, the inverter produces true sinewave AC electricity for your stand-alone or back-up power needs. Computers, TVs and pumps are just some of the examples of modern electronics that last longer and run better when powered with true sinewave electricity from an OutBack inverter. Starting up your well pump is worry-free because of our high surge power capability.
Batteries and generators are the costly consumables when using inverters to generate electricity. The integrated smart battery charger uses multiple stages to perform quick recharging while prolonging battery life, saving your batteries and generator from unnecessary wear. Automatic switching between AC power sources is seamless due to an AC transfer switch that reacts in less than 16 milliseconds.
Unique networked communication is built into all OutBack products providing complete integration. Expanding your system with your growing power needs is as simple as adding additional inverters with modular architecture. Further flexibility is provided with the ability to be connected at any time in either parallel, series or three-phase power configurations. Industry leading OutBack reliability is achieved through simplified design and rugged construction.
FX Sealed Inverter/Chargers
The FX series is designed to survive in environments that would normally destroy other inverter/chargers. Protection for internal components is provided by our die-cast aluminum chassis with a powder coated finish to prevent corrosion. Internal and external cooling fins allow for passive heat transfer, enabling peak operating efficiencies as high as 93% and looking cool while doing it. Water and small particles are kept out through the generous use of gaskets and 0-ring seals on all seams and openings. A protective conformal coating on all circuit boards provides the final line of defense against corrosion. The now standard externally mounted "TURBO" cooling system improves performance in hot conditions.
VFX Vented Inverter/Chargers
The VFX series is designed for more protected installations. By utilizing an efficient active cooling design, the VFX models are available with AC output up to 3.6 kilowatts. Outback's tough die-cast aluminum chassis physically protects the internal components while the air intake includes an easily cleaned filter, which allows for ventilation while also keeping bugs and other debris out. All circuit boards are conformal coated to prevent corrosion from airborne moisture in humid conditions. The now standard DC wiring cover (DCC) protects the DC terminals and battery cables from damage.
OutBack offers a full line of integration hardware designed to complement Eco Depot USA's power electronics products, reduce the time of installation and meet local electrical codes. It is our goal to engineer and build attractive, flexible and well designed integration hardware that is built to last.
