The FLEXware OBFW10-VFX3648 QUAD Battery Based Power System accommodates all of the essential protective devices in the smallest possible space at the lowest installed cost making it ideal for applications with mid-level power requirements such as homes, workshops and back-up power systems. Utilizing an extremely compact design and an easy-to-install mounting bracket, the fully pre-wired and factory tested FLEXware System is designed for a quick installation, saving both time and money.

FLEXware OBFW10-VFX3648 QUAD Battery Based Power System, in addition to the 4 off-grid inverters, includes the FLEXware 1000 AC and DC enclosures, backplates, DC inverter breakers, quad 120/240 VAC input-output-bypass breaker assembly, MATE3, HUB10, an X-240 balancing autotransformer, and an RTS remote temperature sensor, all mounted and wired together. FLEXware components carry all of the necessary ETL Certifications allowing for a code compliant installation that saves both time and money while still looking great.

SURGE PROTECTION: The FLEXware Surge Protector is designed to protect the FLEXware’s sensitive components from excessively high voltages (e.g., electrical storms). Thermally-fused metal oxide varistors (MOVs) limit (“clamp”) these voltages and transfer the resulting current to a lower-voltage port. The FLEXware surge protector features ACTIVE and ERROR LEDs for the DC, AC IN, and AC OUT circuits.

OutBack Power’s FLEXware System is a superior choice when you need a fully integrated, true sinewave, reliable 120/240V power system.

Optional Deep Cycle Battery Choices; Trojan / UPG / Rolls

stand alone kits

Choose the off-grid battery option that best fits your needs. The size of the battery bank you choose depends on the amount of power you require (Watts), the amount of time each day you expect to run your appliances, equipment and lights, and your location or available sunlight. As a rule-of-thumb, when considering batteries off-grid, use 3 days of autonomy (No Sun) as a minimum and 50% depth of discharge for your battery bank.

**Freight Shipping is Dock to Dock

outback inverters

In circumstances where we have to ship by freight, free or otherwise, that means dock to commercial dock (not residential) to any of the lower 48 states. If the customer does not specify a local commercial dock that is available, we will ship to the nearest terminal where the shipment will be held for will call pick up by the customer. If you choose to have your order shipped to your residence, most orders require special handling for unloading and the pallet has to be transferred to a truck with a lift gate. In most cases, truck freight companies do NOT require their drivers to unload shipments. An additional "Residential" as well as a "Lift Gate" special handling fee will apply if the driver unloads the merchandise to the curb at your residence. The special handling fee is $89.00 and is available at checkout. If you have selected this add on service, the shipping carrier will call and schedule delivery of your solar kit, (provided the weight and dimensions of the product fits the criteria for lift gate service). You can avoid the residential and lift gate fees by arranging a "Will Call" pickup at the closest freight company terminal. In that case, you will need a pickup truck, a copy of the bill of laden, and a photo ID. When you arrive at the freight company terminal, the freight company will load your order into the bed of the truck with their forklift. The most common pallet size = 65" X 44" (Height depends on Product). Be sure and check for hidden damage.

Outback FLEXware OBFW10-VFX3648 Pre-wired 120/240V AC Pre-wired Power Center

Outback FLEXware OBFW10-VFX3648 Pre-wired 120/240V AC Power Center is best utilized in applications with greater power requirements like large residential, commercial or mini-grid projects. FLEXware 1000 system architecture is capable of supporting up to four FX Series inverter/chargers, four FM80 charge controllers, and all the required AC and DC components and wiring. FLEXware 1000 is easily expandable for systems as large and complex as your imagination allows. FLEXware 1000 AC and DC enclosures accommodate all essential protective devices while still providing lots of room for additional breakers and large cable connections. With mounting provisions for three DC shunts, there is now space for enough to max out the inputs of multi-channel amp-hour meters. For added versatility a FLEXware 1000-based system can be mounted horizontally or vertically. FLEXware 1000 systems come with one RTS, IOB-Q-120/240VAC, HUB10 and X-240. The 1000 systems come with the MATE remote monitors.

FLEXware power center IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS: FLEXware Power Center. (OK, here is the scary legal disclaimer.) It is the responsibility of the purchaser to ensure that all products are installed and operated in accordance with local and national building codes as specific by the NEC (National Electric Code), UBC (Uniform Building Code) or IBC (International Building Code) and local utility company policy. This product is designed for indoor or protected compartment installations. DO NOT expose the Outback FLEXware to rain, snow, moisture or liquids of any type. Use insulated tools to reduce the chance of electrical shock or accidental short circuits. Remove all jewelry such as rings, watches, bracelets, etc. when installing the FLEXware Power Center or any other electronic gear. Always disconnect the batteries or energy source prior to installation or performing maintenance on the FLEXware Power Center inverter. Live power may be present at more than one point since an inverter utilizes both batteries and AC electricity. Turning off the FLEXware Power Center may not reduce that risk. Always verify proper wiring prior to starting the inverter. Do not operate the FLEXware Power Center if it has been damaged. Always read and follow the manufactures installation and operating instructions for the Outback FLEXware OBFW10-VFX3648 Pre-wired 120/240V AC Power Center prior to installation and operation.
