OutBack Power Expands End-to-End, Proven Renewable Energy Systems for Central, Latin American Markets

Sole manufacturer with end-to-end, UL1741-compliant renewable energy system offering

ARLINGTON, Wash.--OutBack Power Technologies, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of advanced power electronics for renewable energy, backup power and mobile applications, will showcase its FLEXware Integrated Combiner Solution (ICS) alongside its new SmartHarvest line for Central and Latin American markets during the MiaGreen show, February 11 and 12 in Miami. With ICS, OutBack offers the first end-to-end system from rooftop PV array combiner to grid, from a single brand, making it easier than ever for system designers and installers to specify, integrate and support their systems. OutBack has also expanded its energy storage offerings with comprehensive battery and enclosure lines ranging from smaller top-terminal to large-capacity 2V VRLA batteries. And now, all OutBack systems can be remotely monitored AND controlled via the OPTICS RE dashboard, which allows installers and end users to access their systems remotely. This complete portfolio dramatically increases the range of power problems this brand can solve for installers and end-users.

As photovoltaic (PV) and wind-generated electricity sources become increasingly important to energy production in developing countries, systems such as SmartHarvest charge controllers are ideal for meeting local power needs. Installers who count on OutBack's legendary performance, reliability and support now have a new set of solutions on which to design and build smaller, cost-effective systems that are easy to install and maintain over the life of the system.

"Today, renewable energy has become so much more affordable that it is being used extensively throughout the world," said Harvey Wilkinson, general manager, OutBack Power. "Our new offerings enable installers and consumers to comply with the latest industry regulations, reduce costs and save time, all while enjoying OutBack's trademark ease-of-use and reliability from rooftop to grid."

The new FLEXware ICS Plus meets National Electrical Code requirements for rapid shutdown and arc-fault circuit interrupter (AFCI) protection, and is designed with present and emerging standards in mind to protect returns on investment. ICS' advanced safety features, which assure emergency response teams that PV building arrays are safely shut down, represent industry-leading innovation in an increasingly standardized field. It will be available by the end of the 2nd quarter.
