OutBack GS8048A Inverter/Charger
Outback GS8048A Inverter with accessories (not included)
OutBack GS8048A, 8000 Watts 48 Volts 120/240 VAC, 60 Hz, Off-Grid/Grid-Tie Inverter, Pure Sine Wave with Grid/Zero Technology
OutBack Radian GS4048A, GS8048A and GS8048 inverters work equally well as a grid-tie or off-grid inverter. There are two separate AC inputs, one for the bi-directional grid connection and one for a backup generator. There is a built-in 50 A transfer switch at 120/240 VAC. The output is 120/240 VAC split phase in each unit for easy tie-in to US standard wiring and grid connections. The Radian features 4 kW or 8 kW of continuous output power and can support large dynamic load variations and surge loads, making it well suited for demanding commercial applications as well as residential use. The GS4048A and GS8048A support a wider range of battery charging parameters and are reccomended when using advanced battery chemistries, such as litium ion. These two inverters also include OutBack's new Grid Zero feature, which enables them to manage input from the utility grid in parallel with the inverter output, and are reccomended for systems that aren't net metered. With two power stages, the GS8048 and GS8048A are able to provide high efficiency and redundancy for critical applications, and the modular design is field serviceable. The Radian series inverters can be parallel stacked with up to 10 inverters for 80 kW total output. The GS8048A and GS4048A can also be stacked for a 12 kW system. In fully off-grid applications, the minimum recommended battery size is 175 Ah for the GS4048A and 350 Ah for the GS8048 for each inverter installed in a power system. Grid-tie with backup systems can work with battery banks as small as 200 when a generator is included in the system.
