OutBack Provides Extended Battery Life
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.
OutBack Provides Flexibility
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.
What's the difference between a sealed and vented OutBack inverter?
Sealed inverters are designed for harsh environments. A die-cast aluminum chassis is combined with cooling fans to keep operating efficiencies high while keeping water and small particles out.
Vented inverters, on the other hand, are intended for more protected installations. While there is still a sturdy aluminum case protecting internal components, air is brought in to allow ventilation with a filter to keep debris out.
OutBack Inverter / Chargers FX Series (Sealed)
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 fans 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.
OutBack Inverter / Chargers VFX Series (Vented)
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.
