My shipment arrived on time, as predicted. Very, very good performance by EcoDirect. What more could you ask for from an online material supplier? Looks like the quantity from Quick Mount is spot on & the rails were bundled safely. EcoDirect will be my recommended source to my friends & neighbors for solar.

Our Price: $140.00

OutBack FLEXware Surge Protector

Manufacturer Part Number: FW-SP-250

Flexware 250 compatible surge protector.

Every OutBack Grid Tie Inverter/Charger now requires this Surge Protector to conform to UL 1741-2005 and the NEC. Surge protectors are a desirable feature for Off Grid systems since they usually protect the system from lightning. Surge protectors do not work on boats, RVs, and on polar ice sheets because an Earth Ground is required.

The FW-SP-250 is designated to mount inside the FLEXware 250 AC Side Breaker Enclosure allowing for quick installations that keep your system protected and looking great.

Detailed Description

The OutBack Power Systems FLEXware Surge Protector is the newest seamlessly integrated balance-of-system component for the FX Series Inverter/Charger. The FLEXware Surge Protector was designed by OutBack engineers specifically for OutBack FX Series Inverter/Chargers, and provides multiple levels of protection for the vital electrical components of the Inverter/Charger in the event of an electrical surge or nearby lightning strike.

The sophisticated design allows for both AC and DC protection on multiple circuits (two AC and one DC) via thermally fused Metal Oxide Varistors (MOVs). LED visual indicators provide at-a-glance status monitoring allowing system users to determine FLEXware Surge Protector is designed to operate between 120-240 VAC at 50/60 Hz and 12-48 VDC. Its multiple mounting configurations allow it to be incorporated into any OutBack system.

The OutBack Power System FLEXware Surge Protector is the only choice when your want to protect your FX Series Inverter/Charger from the harmful effects of transient power surges. Ease of installation and seamless integration make it the obvious additions to your OutBack system.
