Outback GS8048-2CC Radian Power Centers 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. Just like the local utility grid, the inverter produces pure Sinewave AC electricity for your stand alone 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 pure Sinewave electricity from an OutBack inverter. Starting up your air conditioning, washing machine or well pump is worry-free because of OutBacks 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 OutBacks 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. Industry leading OutBack reliability is achieved through simplified design and rugged construction.

Outback Battery Options

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 (If you are adding solar or wind power). 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 GS8048-2CC Radian Power Center Charger 48 Vdc, 120 / 240 VAC Pure Sine Wave Home Power

Outback GS8048-2CC Radian Power Center are solid-state electronic device that, when sized properly, can be used in nearly every solar and wind energy system that uses batteries. Radian inverter / charger provides a comprehensive answer for grid-tied and stand-alone power systems. Based upon a proven foundation of reliable technology, but engineered from the ground up to simplify the design, distribution, installation and implementation of energy storage, the standardized structure and integration with the GS Load Center make it easy to provide a successful solution to any power requirement, on-grid, backup power source and off-grid power. 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. Inverters / chargers regulate the charge of the battery, but also prevent the battery from being over discharged which can damage the battery bank.

Outback GS8048-2CC Radian Power Center uses multiple stages of control to regulate different voltage and current levels. The voltage and current of a battery varies over the different stages of battery charge. Though the amount can vary, the bulk charge usually is approximately 80%, the absorption charge is 10% with the float charge representing the balance of the battery charging process.

The bulk charging stage of the Outback Radian Inverter / charger process is the first stage to used to bring the battery depth of discharge (DOD) back to 100%. The bulk charge stage happens first in in the morning after the batteries DOD has drained down since sunset the previous day. The bulk charging stage pushes as many amps into the battery bank as possible from the solar panels and gets the voltage up in the process. The effect of a charge controller is not unlike trying to fill a glass of water from a faucet. You first turn the faucet on full while the glass if filling, then slowly taper off the pressure until the glass is full. When the battery bank reaches a predetermined level known as the bulk voltage set-point, the charge is then substantially slowed. Because the bulk voltage set point is determined by the type of battery you are using, many charge controllers have to be pre-set to the type of battery which will dictate the rate of charge.

The second state of charge the Outback Radian Inverter employs is the absorption stage. After a battery system has been brought up to the bulk voltage set point, the charge controller slows down the charge rate because the battery bank cannot accept the same rapid charging pace without overheating and damaging the battery bank. At the absorption stage a battery bank is only about 80% full. The absorption charge is the function level in the process that tops off the battery bank. During the absorption stage, the charge controller holds the battery volts constant and reduces the amount of current sent into the battery. When the absorption stage is complete, the battery bank is fully charges.

The final step the Outback GS8048-2CC Radian Power Center performs is the float charge. Typically a charge controller enters into a float charge state when the other charge levels of the battery bank has been achieved. When the number of peak sun hours is limited, a solar charge controller may not be able to get the battery bank back to the float stage before the next cycle begins.

outback inverters IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS: Outback GS8048-2CC Radian 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 Flexmax 80 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 Outback Radian Inverter or any other electronic gear. Always disconnect the batteries or energy source prior to installation or performing maintenance on the Outback Radian Inverter Live power may be present at more than one point since an inverter utilizes both batteries and AC electricity. Turning off the Outback Radian Inverter may not reduce that risk. Always verify proper wiring prior to starting the inverter. Do not operate the Outback Radian Inverter / charger if it has been damaged. Always read and follow the manufactures installation and operating instructions for the Outback GS8048-2CC Radian Power Center prior to installation and operation.
