Outback Solar & Wind Power
Outback Renewable Energy Applications was founded in 2001 by three engineers with a long history in developing technologies for renewable energy applications. They believed that the renewable energy industry was ripe for unprecedented growth, thanks to the increasing demand for alternative energy sources. Outback's products are able to maximize the power yield of photovoltaic arrays. The company's innovative MPPT technology enables optimum power yield from photovoltaic panels, and it has a proven track record in this area.
Outback's MPPT technology maximizes photovoltaic array power yield
Outback's MPPT technology optimizes photovoltaic array output, which is impacted by temperature and shading. These controllers provide high-quality, rugged design and advanced algorithms for maximum power yield. Outback's MPPT technology helps solar array owners improve solar array power yield by 30% or more. Outback's MPPT technology is also compatible with a wide range of nominal battery voltages.
OutBack's FLEXmax_60 MPPT Charge Controllers feature an active, continuous MPPT algorithm that optimizes PV array power yield. These controllers are scalable to 104degF and operate with battery systems ranging from 12 to 60 VDC. Outback's network communications support remote programming and monitoring. With these controllers, you can monitor and control your entire PV array from anywhere.
OutBack's modular system architecture allows customers to grow their photovoltaic arrays to over 36,000 watts. Inverters in the Outback lineup have substantial surge power capacity and enter power save mode when not in use. The MPPT technology can also be used to control hydro and wind turbine charging sources. The FLEXnet DC, the ultimate monitoring and control device for a DC system, is also available.
Outback's MPPT technology provides optimal voltage regulation, reducing the amount of energy required to maintain battery charge. With a single MPPT input, one solar panel can operate a shaded or unshaded array. In such a scenario, the power generated by the entire array will be higher than the voltage of the battery bank. The MPPT technology also minimizes the risk of "clipping" in peak current under cool and clear conditions.
Using a charge controller with maximum power point tracking (MPPT) technology will help maximize PV array power yield. The MPPT algorithms help you maximize power yield by adjusting battery voltage and output according to the PV array's peak and minimum DC output. Outback's MPPT charge controllers also minimize the size of wires and simplify installation. So, no matter how large or small your solar array is, you will always have a reliable supply of power.
Outback's MPPT technology maximizes PV array power yield by adjusting the voltage at specific points to ensure that the PV modules are at their peak, which is also known as the maximum power point. The maximum power point of a PV module depends on a variety of factors, including solar radiation, wire length and temperature. MPPT technology allows you to extract maximum voltage from your solar array, even when the temperature changes significantly.
Its modular system architecture
The OutBack Solar & Wind Power modular system architecture enables increased power output, based on the modular design. OutBack inverters are equipped with substantial surge power capabilities. The Inverter series from OutBack offers reliability and performance in harsh environments. These modules are available in vented and sealed configurations. Grid-interconnected systems with the OutBack inverters can reach 36kW. The modular design allows for a system to expand up to 36kW.
All OutBack products communicate with each other. The product line consists of a series of communication devices, including the MATE1, MATE2, and MATE3 devices. The HUB System communications manager forms the backbone of OutBack power conversion systems. OutBack's FLEXnet DC system monitoring device is the ultimate solution for monitoring a DC system. It features a built-in transfer switch.
OutBack's FXR series inverter/charger is one of the industry's most versatile and reliable platforms. The modular system architecture makes installation easy and cost-effective. In addition to providing optimum cooling for zero-clearance installations, the inverters can be programmed, integrated, and field-serviced. Firmware updates are simple and require no specialized tools. The FXR Series inverters support seven operating modes and two advanced technologies.
The OutBack MPPT charge controllers provide the same durability and reliability of other OutBack products. OutBack MPPT algorithms increase the photovoltaic array power yield by 30%, with continuous and active monitoring of battery charging. The FLEXmax MPPT charge controllers are equipped with intelligent thermal management and cooling that ensure they can operate at full current rating even in temperatures of 104 degrees Fahrenheit. So, whether you want to power your entire house or a single car or a single RV, the OutBack MPPT controller will provide reliable power generation.
OutBack Power's system architecture focuses on integrating all components into one complete unit. The inverter, batteries, and charging electronics work seamlessly together. The SystemEdge pre-bundled packages feature the most popular FLEXpower inverter and energy storage configurations. A systemEdge system includes the FLEXpower Radian inverter panel, FlexMax charge controllers, EnergyCell batteries, and FLEXware ICS combiner box, as well as all necessary wiring and connection hardware.
