|Model||Part Number||Output Watts||Input Current||Voltage DC/AC||Type||Inverter|
|FP2 VFX3648||3480040||7,200||80 Amps||48 / 120 or 240||Off-Grid||2 - VFX3648|
Includes two inverter/chargers, AC and DC wiring boxes, a MATE3, HUB, and Surge Protector. Equipped with battery and solar array breakers; Input-Output-Bypass Assembly; Additional AC breakers Components carry all of the necessary ETL Certifications
SURGE PROTECTION: The Flexpower Surge Protector is designed to protect the FlexPower Two’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 Flexpower surge protector features ACTIVE and ERROR LEDs for the DC, AC IN, and AC OUT circuits. The Surge Protector is located in the FlexPower Two’s AC wiring compartment.
OutBack Power’s FlexPower Two System is a superior choice when you need a fully integrated, true sinewave, reliable 240V power system.

Because few gas generators produce grid quality AC power, when using OutBack grid-interactive products in conjunction with a generator to recharge batteries, Outback only recommends using Honda EU generators. Flexware relay assembly may be necessary for auto start function of a two wire auto start generator.
Optional Deep Cycle Battery Choices; Trojan / UPG / Rolls
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
In circumstances where we have to ship by freight, 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 available at checkout. 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 = 72" X 44" (Height depends on Product). Be sure and check for hidden damage.

Outback FlexPower FP2 VFX3648 Pre-wired Power Center 240 Volt AC
Outback FlexPower Two Power Centers are solid-state electronic devices that, when sized properly, can be used in nearly every solar and wind energy system that uses batteries. The Power Centers Blue Pacific Solar sells employ the latest in power electronics to regulate the battery charge by controlling the charging voltage and current from a solar panel array. Power Centers regulate the charge of the battery, but also prevent the battery from being over discharged which can damage the battery bank.
Off-grid or grid tied with battery backup, here is how the FlexPower Power System basically works. For a grid tied battery backup, grid power comes into the Outback FlexPower power center. If the backup batteries are fully charged, the power is then passed to the critical load or backup load subpanel inside the home. The FlexPower power system is monitoring the sine wave of the grid, amps and volts. When the FlexPower system detects changes outside the default parameters, it immediately begins to draw power from the backup battery system and pushes it to the critical load subpanel.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS: FlexPower Two 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 FlexPower Two 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 FlexPower Two Power Center or any other electronic gear. Always disconnect the batteries or energy source prior to installation or performing maintenance on the FlexPower Two 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 FlexPower Two Power Center may not reduce that risk. Always verify proper wiring prior to starting the inverter. Do not operate the FlexPower Two Power Center if it has been damaged. Always read and follow the manufactures installation and operating instructions for the Outback FlexPower FP2 VFX3648 Pre-wired Power Center prior to installation and operation.
