Outback Power Radian GS4048A > 4000W 48V 120/240 VAC Inverter/Charger

Manufacturer Part Number: GS4048A

Full-Flexibility, Grid-Interactive/Off-Grid Inverter

Detailed Description

The Radian Series GS8048A and GS4048A Grid/Hybrid™ (full-flexibility grid-interactive/off-grid) Inverter/Charger is engineered toward one goal: making system design and installation easier and faster in grid-interactive and comprehensive off-grid applications. The new Radian Series inherit the hallmark features of the original design, including: dual AC inputs for grid/generator flexibility with no external switching required, unparalleled surge capability and operational stability, easy field upgradeability and stacking capability for large system scaling, simplified system commissioning through a powerful, easy-to-use configuration wizard, and multi-mode operational flexibility.

In addition, both models have a new Advanced Battery Charging (ABC) profile option to support leading-edge battery technologies such as Lithium-Ion and others, and enhanced diagnostics for improved performance. And both incorporate OutBack’s GridZero technology, a superior level of intelligence in energy management for self-generation and self-consumption programs, providing precise balancing between using stored energy, solar and utility power, blending-in the latter to overcome surges and load spikes when needed. GridZero operation makes it possible for a smaller inverter and battery system to perform like a much larger one when required, putting stored and renewable energy sources to work and minimizing grid dependence. GridZero technology make the new Radians ideal for use in complex utility environments such as California and Hawaii.

The GS8048A and GS4048A are certified to UL1741 for US applications, and CSA C22.2 No. 107.1 for Canada, and is IEC 62109-1 certified to meet the most stringent worldwide PV safety and emission standards.

This product is for selected North, Central and Latin American markets.

Simple integrated design

For the first time, nearly all of the components you need are combined in a single package. No matter what the application, no matter what the power requirement, we make it easy: Everything’s seamless. Easy to install. Simple and intuitive to live with.

Unsurpassed engineering to handle load surges

Keeping the lights on is easy. But what happens to the computer, wide-screen TV and other sensitive electronics loads if you need to power the well pump? The Radian Series is unique in its ability to support large dynamic load variations without voltage spikes or sags.

True energy independence

Basic grid-tie systems can sell back power from a renewable energy source, but only grid-interactive systems can power the load if the grid fails. The Radian Series Inverter/Charger’s dual AC inputs also provide the flexibility to connect to the grid and recharge the batteries from a generator. So you have a continuous power supply, even if emergency conditions last a week or more.

A power solution that scales

Finally, your customers can get the security of a grid-interactive solution combined with the ease of a basic grid-direct PV system. 120/240V output integrates directly into standard home wiring, while the modular, parallel architecture combined with OutBack’s robust HUB Communications Manager provides the ability to build a system to power nearly any load imaginable
