Three Balance-of-System Components Expand Integration

FLEXware, a new line of balance-of-system components from OutBack Power Systems, enables faster installation of the company’s power electronics at a greater level of code-compliance than before. Bryan Thomas, Outback Product Manager, said, “The three system platforms reflect OutBack’s commitment to provide integrated solutions for applications ranging from powering a small cabin to powering an entire village.” The three include: FLEXware 250, which offers a solution for AC and DC disconnects in single inverter/charger installations when space and budget are primary concerns. FLEXware 500, which supports up to two inverter/chargers and two charge controllers in an attractive, versatile and code-compliant package when split-phase and/or higher power output is needed. And FLEXware 1000 (pictured here), which accommodates up to four inverter/chargers and four charge controllers. Both FLEXware 500 and FLEXware 1000 provide locations for auto-transformers, multiple DC shunts and other components required in higher kW systems. For those wishing to expand their systems, FLEXware will be available for sale in the third quarter of this year.
