from our customers, and continue to innovate.
This single model changed the way people looked at system design by
offering unprecedented flexibility in system design and expansion while
the sealed construction allowed for uses which previously would have been
considered too “extreme” for other inverter/chargers.
OutBack releases the MX60 solar MPPT Charge Controller which redefined
performance and value, and quickly gained a reputation for getting the
most power possible from a PV array - often making it more expensive to
not use one.
2003 OutBack launches the first of the vented versions of the FX Series
Inverter/Chargers. These VFX models were introduced in direct response
to our customers’ requests providing higher power at a similar price as the
sealed counterpart.
OutBack launches the PS2, value priced system integration accessories.
This line of accessories addressed the needs of our customers for
competitively priced system integration accessories for smaller systems.
2004 OutBack releases the world’s most efficient grid-interactive inverter/
charger. These models raise the bar for performance and value for batteryconnected grid-interactive inverter/charger systems.
OutBack introduces the PS1 fully integrated grid-interactive power system.
This unique system sets a new standard for system integration, performance
and ease of installation in grid-interactive applications.
2005 OutBack reaches milestones in product deliveries and product
recognition. MX60 and FX Inverter production lines each ship 10,000th unit.
OutBack Power equipped teams sweep the top three places in the 2005
Solar Decathlon, an international competition between universities, to
develop and build the most energy efficient home.

2011 The MATE3 system display and controller is unveiled by OutBack
Power making system management even easier.
OutBack Power launches The Radian Series Inverter/Charger bringing a
radical new feature to the world of renewable energy: Simplicity.
Off-Grid
Solar. Wind. Hydro. Generator. No matter what your energy source OutBack’s products are engineered to
provide your home or business with reliable electricity day-in and day-out. The OutBack modular system
architecture allows your system to grow along with your power needs up to 80,000 watts. Power-hungry
appliances like washing machines, air conditioning and power tools are easily started by our inverter’s
substantial surge power capability. When not being used, the inverter enters a power save mode, which
consumes as little as 3 watts, saving your battery power for when you need it the most. OutBack’s innovative
Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) technology gets the most from your solar array or can also control
hydro or wind turbine charging sources. Complete system status and control is easily monitored by a single
control, instead of requiring the user to keep an eye on multiple displays and status indicators.
Grid-Interactive
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, peace of mind
and the ability to sell power back to the grid when excess power is available. Unlike traditional
grid-tie systems OutBack’s grid-interactive systems allow you to continue to utilize your renewable
energy source in the event of a power outage. 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. OutBack grid-interactive inverters for the U.S. and
Canada are ETL certified to UL1741 specifications.
Mobile and Marine
OutBack’s Mobile and Marine inverter/charger models provide the high performance and reliability you need
no matter where your travels take you. Our die-cast metal construction allows mounting in any position,
even upside down. The required AC input neutral/ground switching is taken care of by a fully integrated
30 amp AC transfer switch for shore cord or generator hook-up. Three circuit boards and a simple design
make field servicing the unit easy no matter where you are. Rigorous testing at the factory ensures that each
inverter/charger works the first time as well as for many years to come. OutBack mobile and marine
inverters are ETL certified to UL458.

OutBack Inverter/Chargers
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 integrated into one chassis.
Product Guide
Radian Series Inverter/Charger
Just like the local utility grid, the inverter produces
true-sinewave AC electricity for your standalone
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 air conditioning,
washing machine or 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 our modular system architecture.
Further flexibility is provided with the ability to
be connected at any time in either parallel, series
or three-phase power configurations. Industryleading OutBack reliability is achieved through
simplified design and rugged construction.

FX Series
Inverter/Charger
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 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 O-ring seals on all seams and openings. A protective conformal
coating on all circuit boards provides the final line of defense against
corrosion. The 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 DC wiring cover (DCC) protects
the DC terminals and battery cables from damage.
GTFX & GVFX Grid Interactive Inverter/Chargers
OutBack Power’s true sinewave grid-interactive inverter/charger is a complete power
solution. It incorporates a DC to AC sinewave inverter, battery charger and AC transfer
switch housed within a die-cast aluminum chassis. The GTFX and GVFX Series Inverter/
Chargers give you the ability to sell solar, wind or hydro power back to the utility grid while
providing instantaneous back-up power in the event of a utility outage.
Our built-in transfer switch automatically disconnects your loads from the utility grid and powers them from the
inverter in the event of an outage, allowing you to continue using your solar and battery back-up power, unlike
traditional grid-tie systems. Intelligent multi-stage battery charging prolongs the life of your batteries and builtin networked communications enables you to stack up to two units while simultaneously communicating with
other OutBack Power components. The exclusive modular system architecture means that increased power output
is just an additional inverter/charger away. Our GTFX series uses a sealed chassis that can operate in the harshest
environmental conditions such as high humidity and corrosive salt air while the GVFX series uses a vented chassis
with “bug proof ” screened openings that allow high output AC power in various operating conditions.

GFX International Series
Inverter/Charger
The OutBack true sinewave GFX International Series Inverter/Charger is a competitive power solution designed
for applications with lower power demands. Incorporating a DC-to-AC sinewave inverter, battery
charger and AC transfer relay housed within a die-cast aluminum chassis, the International
Series GFX Inverter/Chargers give you the ability to sell solar, wind or hydro power back to
the utility grid while providing instantaneous back-up power in the event of a utility outage.
The GFX International Series built in transfer relay automatically disconnects your
loads from the utility grid and powers them from the inverter in the event of an
outage, allowing you to continue using your solar and battery back-up power,
unlike traditional grid-tie systems. For areas that frequently experience power
instability such as surges, spikes or brownouts, or where standard inverters have
trouble syncing to the utility grid, the GFX International Series grid reconnect
timers have been shortened to reduce overall sell-back downtime and improve
system functionality.
Intelligent multi-stage battery charging prolongs the life of your batteries and
built-in networked communications allow for simultaneous communications of
up to ten OutBack Power components within the system. The exclusive modular
system architecture means that increased power output is just an additional
inverter/charger away. Our GFX International Series uses a sealed chassis that can
operate in the harshest environmental conditions such as high humidity and corrosive salt air.

Remote Temperature Sensor
RTS
The OutBack Remote Temperature Sensor (RTS) is a necessary tool
for proper battery charging. All OutBack products with integrated
battery charging have a temperature compensation system built
in which benefits from the installation of the RTS (included with
inverter/chargers). The RTS ensures that your OutBack system
knows the precise battery temperature so that it can recharge your
batteries safely and efficiently. Systems with multiple OutBack
products connected to one HUB4 or HUB10 require only a single
RTS to be installed.
15' (5 m) cable
Multi-Stage Battery Charging
The multistage charging process (5 stages)
uses several regulation stages to allow
fast recharging of the battery energy
storage system while ensuring a long
battery life, high performance and
efficient operation of the overall
system. The charging process begins
with the BULK stage, where maximum
current is sent to the batteries until the
target “absorb” voltage is reached and
the absorb stage of the charge begins.
During ABSORB, the charger provides
the batteries with the just enough
current to hold at the set voltage for a
preset amount of time. Following this
cycle, the charging system changes
between available OutBack charging
products. Using a FLEXmax Series
20
Charge Controller, the batteries enter
the FLOAT stage where they are given
a maintenance charge until there is
no excess renewable energy. The FX
or VFX inverter/charger will go into
SILENT mode where the charger
turns off until the battery voltage
drops to the “re-float” setting. At this
point the inverter/charger initiates the
maintenance float charge. This method
reduces fuel and utility consumption.
It should be noted that the temperature
of your batteries has an impact on
the charging process. The OutBack
RTS should be used to monitor this.
In higher ambient temperatures, the
battery charging regulation settings
will be automatically reduced to
prevent overcharging of the batteries.
Conversely, in lower ambient
temperature conditions, the regulation
Bulk
Absorb
Time *
Silent
settings will be increased to ensure
complete recharging of the batteries.
Batteries are composed of a group
of individual cells. Through normal
use, the charge of each individual cell
will not be equal to the other cells. To
address this, your batteries should be
EQUALIZED either once each month
or once every few months depending
on usage. During the equalization
charge the electrolyte in the battery
is stirred up by gas bubbles, which
help to create an equal mixture of
water and acid. Simultaneously the
full cells are overcharged which allows
the low cells to “catch up” and all of
the active material in the battery to
be reconverted to its charged state.
Depending on usage, the hardened
battery plate material that is no longer
active in the battery-sulfation can also
be reduced by an equalization charge.

Batteries are a key component in
backup and off-grid systems, often
serving as the only energy storage
device. To guarantee that they
function properly it is important that
your batteries are maintained. A chief
part of this maintenance is proper
charging. Your batteries should always
be maintained above a 50% level of
charge and receive a regular recharges
once a month to ensure operation at
peak performance. Prolonged use of
the battery below a 50% state of charge
will adversely affect the long-term
health of the battery and can result in
premature failure.

Stacking
At OutBack, we adhere to a philosophy that a power system should be fully customizable to address your specific needs. Therefore
we set out to create the world’s first group of inverter/chargers that use a truly modular architecture. This modular architecture uses
the next generation of a technique referred to as “stacking” to enable you to tailor your system for higher output power, increased
charging capabilities and/or three-phase power configuration.
Whether stacked in parallel, classic series, series/parallel or three-phase there is always an inverter/charger which performs the task
of Master. The Master talks to the other units through the HUB system communications manager while performing three major
roles, keeping all inverter/chargers properly phased, controlling inverter and charger output levels, as well as putting unused inverters
into Power Save mode to improve system efficiency at low AC load levels.
Parallel Stacking - More power at same output voltage
When the inverter/chargers are stacked in parallel all inverter and charger outputs are combined. This means that each inverter’s AC output is
added up to equal your total system AC output, up to 36,000 watts, in phase at the same 120 VAC/60 Hz or 230 VAC/50 Hz output voltage, or
80,000 watts at 120/240 VAC/60 Hz with the Radian Series.

Classic Series Stacking - More power at higher output voltage
Stacking inverter/chargers in classic series provides a system with split phase 120/240VAC. This method does not allow balancing between
separate legs on a system and is can only be used in dual inverter/charger systems without the X-240 Auto Transformer.

OutBack Series/Parallel Stacking - More power at all output voltages
Series/Parallel stacking or OutBack (OB) stacking is unique to OutBack inverter/chargers. Never before has it been possible to have inverter/chargers balancing loads intelligently between two legs of AC power while seamlessly changing between series and parallel. OB Stacking uses the X-240
auto transformer to balance the loads between the two separate series legs of a system. The X-240 allows AC loads on leg 1 and leg 2 to be powered
by any combination of inverter/chargers within your system. Even if there are only two inverter/chargers, connected in series, they can function as
if connected in parallel. This allows larger AC loads to be operated by a system without risking overloading one of the 120 VAC outputs.

3-Phase Stacking - More power for three-phase loads
Three inverter/chargers can be configured to provide 120/208 VAC or 230/400VAC four wire “WYE/Star” three-phase AC Power. An inverter/charger is
used to power each of the three legs for 3-phase AC power. The loads on each of the inverters do not need to be kept balanced­­– each phase is independently
voltage regulated.

Auto Transformer
The OutBack PSX-240 (6 kVA) auto transformer can be used for step-up, stepdown, generator and split-phase output balancing or as a series stacked inverter
to load balancing autoformer. Incorporating a transformer with 120 volt/30
amp primary and secondary side, a temperature activated cooling fan and a 25
amp dual breaker in a steal enclosure, the PSX-240 is ready to install in your
custom application. Use for 120 or 240 VAC 60 Hz systems only.
Powering 240 volt items like deep well pumps with a single 120 volt inverter is
possible thanks to the PSX-240’s step-up capability. Its step-down feature allows you
to charge your batteries with a 240 volt generator through a single 120 volt inverter. The PSX240’s ability to balance the output of series stacked inverter/chargers makes it a critical item when using the
OutBack stacking 120/240 VAC configuration.
The FW-X240 (4 kVA) is also available without the enclosure, for installation inside the FW500-AC or FW1000-AC enclosures.

Integration Hardware
The OutBack Power Technologies FLEXware PV combiner
series sets the new standard for PV balance-of-system hardware.
Ideal for both small or large systems, the FLEXware PV8 and
FLEXware PV12 accommodates the overcurrent protection
requirements of your application. From 150VDC breakers
for low voltage PV systems, to 600VDC fuse holders for high
voltage PV systems, the FLEXware PV Combiner series handles
it all.
Designed to survive in outdoor environments, the rainproof, type
3R powder coated aluminum chassis can be mounted on a wall,
sloped roof or pole. The unique angled negative terminal bus
bar design makes wiring fast and easy without the larger output
conductors blocking access to the smaller input terminals. Dual
output lug terminals are included for up to 2/0 AWG conductors.
The tinted flame-retardant polycarbonate deadfront panel creates a
clean appearance while preventing accidental contact with the live
terminals and is easily removable during installation.
The FLEXware PV Combiner makes it easy to take your installation
to the next level.
