OutBack Power Technologies is a leader in advanced energy conversion technology. OutBack products include true sine wave inverter/chargers, maximum power point tracking charge controllers, and system communication components, as well as circuit breakers, batteries, accessories, and assembled systems. As a leader in off-grid energy systems designed around energy storage, OutBack Power is an innovator in Grid/Hybrid system technology, providing the best of both worlds: grid-tied system savings during normal or daylight operation, and off-grid independence during peak energy times or in the event of a power outage or an emergency. Grid/Hybrid systems have the intelligence, agility and interoperability to operate in multiple energy modes quickly, efficiently, and seamlessly, in order to deliver clean, continuous and reliable power to residential and commercial users while maintaining grid stability.
Technical Specifications: Radian Power Center ● 48 VDC Battery Based Pure Sinewave Inverter. 240VAC Output, Continuous Inverter AC Output Current 33.3 AAC (Single Radian) ● Charge Controller FM80 NEC Recommended Solar Maximum Array STC Nameplate: 48VDC systems: 4000W per Charge Controller; ● 240 VAC Generator Compatible.
IMPORTANT: Amps AC Output; Define Your Load Amp Requirements: A Single OutBack Radian inverter's continuous AC output current is limited to 33.3AAC. The concern here is that the combination of your normal loads (Not Surge Loads) might exceed the inverters output current rating (Amps Out) on larger solar systems. It is critical in the design selection that you make sure the continuous AC load combination of your power requirements at the site is at or below the 33.3 AAC output limit of a single Radian inverter.
The Radian GS8048A-01 is ideal for full-size solutions for off-grid, grid-tie and or backup power for homes, farms or small commercial systems. The OutBack Kit comes with all necessary solar components integrated into a compact hang-on-the-wall system with a minimal footprint. (Locally Sourced Wire and Conduit Will be Required)
● Off-grid and grid-tie functionality in one flexible system.
Programmable for seven different modes including GridZero, which blends utility power and stored renewable energy, minimizing grid dependence; also Support Mode for seamless generator integration.
The Grid Tied mode allows the Radian inverter to become grid-interactive. This means that in addition to using power from the utility grid for charging and loads, the inverter can also convert excess battery power and export power to the utility grid. Excess battery power usually comes from renewable energy sources, such as solar arrays, hydroelectric turbines, and wind turbines.
Backup functionality requires a seperate critical load panel. The Radian inverter’s transfer circuit and will power the loads when utility power is lost.
CA Rule 21 currently governs CA & HI Rule 14H utility interconnection for all net energy metering for all projects permitted and approved for interconnection. The change was designed to create a standard for inverters more capable of dealing with a volatile utility grid. Why is this needed? Utility companies are facing higher penetration rates of solar and in some cases are saturated and needed an additional low/high frequency ride-through. By using so called smart inverters the functionality keeps grid voltage from oscillating or acts like a shock absorber intended result is automatic stabilization of utiltiy grid voltage.
Line drawing questions or just stuck? No worries we have your back and will be here to help whenever you have questions about your purchased Kit. For orders larger than $2,000.00 a Technical Sales Team Group Captain will be assigned your account. Your Technical Advisors job is to coordinate all parts and pieces of your order and to work with you throughout the process. This support helps because we will be providing you with a single contact point to call with your questions. Your technical support contact does not replace the maufactures warranty technical support. DIY means you accept the responsiblity of reading and following the line diagram and other installation documents prior to tackling the installation.
NOTE: For detail support after installation customer must be willing or have the ability to connect to the system monitoring via web interface with OutBack OPTICS RE. The monitoring platform software is free but requires a WiFi connnection to the Mate3s Controller via RS485 .
