Re: AXS port availability?

You may consider calling OutBack at 360-435-6030. They may know if one of their distributors in your area sells the stand alone AXS Port.

Re: Manually upgrade a FlexPower One to Two

I see no one touched your question so I will try. Possible? Yes - Easy? not really. Things to consider: 2 - FW250 to connect on each end of the new inverter to house all the necessary breakers, etc. 1 - FW-IOB-S-120VAC kit for the AC breakers/bypass. You will also want the DC breakers for the charge...

Re: 6 volt FLA golf cart battery?

Re: Detailed information on FP1

Re: Radian vs GTFX

There are various opinions afloat and I present my idea as an opinion only. I think that the Radian has more flexibility and will give you room to grow if needed. OutBack also has a load center that is prewired with the relays to shed the load when grid out and the batteries are fully charged. The M...

I believe there is a strong possibility that you have the same battery discussed in the link above. If so, they are manufactured by East Penn. That would be a good place to start.

Re: Coluld be adding more panels

Would the lower voltage from that string of 4 additional panels drag down the ones that are tilted? Yes, that is how it works. You said that you have the FM60 now and want to upgrade to the FM80. Have you considered keeping the FM60 on the current panels and using the FM80 upgrade on the new panels...

Re: What happens when battery is disconnected abruptly

Why I asked my question what happens with my FlexMAX 80 is, when my alternator is abruptly disconnected from my battery, it will result in a complete destruction of the alternator. He cannot react fast enough on the change of situation. for example: he's charging at 60 A 13,5 Volts...and gets disco...

Re: What happens when battery is disconnected abruptly

When the relay opens the circuit to protect the batteries, the energy ceases to flow. Nothing begins to happen as your system is designed to operate. Sometimes nothing is good. Once the batteries become stable and there is energy used, the relay will close and the solar once again will provide energ...
