|OutBack GVFX Series Sine Wave Inverter Grid-tie|
Cat. No. 551INVTGVFX
The GVFX models uses the same die-cast aluminum housing but is not sealed - outside air is drawn through the electronics to allow higher power ratings and better performance in high ambient conditions. The air intake of the inverter includes a removable, washable filter and the exhaust openings are protected by grills with very small openings to prevent entry of insects, etc.
The new OutBack VFX series is a ventilated version of our original sealed FX series modular "building block” sine wave inverter/charger that can be used for both small and large power systems. By allowing cooler outside airflow through the internal electronics, more AC power is available and operation in extremely hot environments is improved compared to the sealed FX series.
Each OutBack FX or VFX inverter/charger is a complete power conversion system - DC to AC inverter, battery charger and AC transfer switch. Additional FX inverter/chargers can be connected at any time in either parallel (120 VAC), series (120/240 VAC), or three-phase (120Y208 VAC) configurations. This allows a system to be tailored to meet the specific power conversion requirements of the application, both at the time of the installation and in the future.
The OutBack VFX series is also available in export versions with 230 VAC, 50 hz output that can be connected in parallel (230 VAC) or in three phase (230Y400 VAC) configurations. Like the FX series, the OutBack VFX is also designed to survive harsh environments around the world. The full sreened vent openings are "bug-proof" and the die-cast aluminum chassis protects and keeps the power conversion components cool in very hot environments even when operated at high power for extended periods. The VFX can be used in high ambient applications up to 60oC (with reduced output ratings).
The OutBack VFX series inverter/charger system is designed for both residential and commercial stand-alone or back-up power applications with battery energy storage. It is designed to operate as a coordinated system with the other OutBack products i.e. the PSDC, PSAC and PSR enclosures as well as the MX60 MPPT charge controllers and MATE system controller and display.
