12v output

A place where users can meetup with other FlexPower One users and can find support for one another. A great place for people who have not purchased the FlexPower One yet to look up information.

Hello,
The FP1 3.5Kw has a 24V inverter, getting 12V for a water pump is possible, but would have to be external to the Outback equipment

If you have a 24 or 48 volt battery bank and a 12 vdc pump I would suggest you Google DC Converters. It is never good to draw off of 1 battery in a system it creates imbalances with in the battery bank.
If you have a dc pump you are not connecting it to the FP1 you are connecting it to the batteries.
This is a small point but it is best to clarify.
