Outback GTFX 3048 Grid-Tie Inverter 3000 Watt, 48 VDC Grid-Tie Inverter - Sealed 120 VAC/60 Hz - Turbo Included
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.
Grid-Interactive renewable energy systems enable you to demonstrate your personal commitment to a renewable energy future. With the OutBack grid-interactive system, backup AC power is made available 24 hours a day in the event of a utility outage, providing reliable power and peace-of-mind. At night, the inverter's automatic power save mode ensures that energy is not wasted by needlessly charging your batteries from the utility grid. An average conversion efficiency of 91% using the California Energy Commission (CEC) test protocol provides greater savings and a shorter time period for system payback. OutBack's grid-interactive technology provides you more than a typical solar inverter, we also have an unmatched ability to utilize solar, wind and hydropower sources.
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. Our 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.
