As the demand for renewable energy increases, the needs of home and cabin owners are rapidly evolving as well. OutBack Power, a company that has set the standard in off-grid and grid tied solar systems has come out with a new battery cell that easily fits into their new integrated pre-build battery rack. OutBack is responding by engineering its acclaimed line of balance-of-system components into pre-assembled systems to give solar installers and DIY homeowners the best of both worlds: OutBack quality in a more easily specified and installed package. Batteries and off-grid solar was never easier.
The OutBack Integrated Battery Rack system is a comprehensive battery enclosure solution with cell interconnects, cabling, and series string overcurrent protection and disconnects included, making it easy to order and install. All electrical connections are made at the factory and ship fully assembled with the exception of the batteries, which can be quickly added and connected on the job site.
Unlike typical steel racks, the OutBack design is crafted of powder coated aluminum, resulting in a rack that maintains a clean, durable appearance even in challenging environments while weighing less than 90 pounds. Clear covers allow for visual inspection while providing more protection for the batteries and electrical connections. The rack can accommodate up to twelve (12) EnergyCell RE batteries, and supports 48 volt systems all of which can be installed safely by any homeowner.
