This is a complete 100Kw PV generation kit with 63Kw AC output to be configured as 3 Phase with 21Kw per phase. It has 8400Ah of NiFe batteries which is around 680Kwhrs of storage (at a C100 rate).
Invented over 100 years ago by Thomas Edison as a non-polluting and non-consumable alternative to Lead Acid Batteries using no heavy metals! Now manufactured once again worldwide after lead acid battery companies closed Edison's Plant in 1972.
We have sourced NiFe at a competative rate at a little over double our cheap lead acid range and similar to our Rolls battery prices. This makes them a very viable option for long term off grid solutions.
You need 10 cells to make up a 12V bank, 20 cells for a 24V bank and 40 cells for a 48V bank
They have low operation cost, low self-discharge, long cycling life and environmental-friendly. They can withstand deep discharge, wide temperature variations, mechanical & electrical abuses and still show excellent and reliable performance over a long period. The operation life of solar Ni-Fe batteries is 30-40 Years, the working temperature range can be -40°C to 60°C, which is also the longest life battery for the PV system.

Optional Auto Watering System
Optional LED fluid level indicator
These have a long lead time as they are made to order and shipped over to us, please allow 2 months for delivery, but for a battery that will out live any other battery if your deciding to go down this route its definitely worth the wait and this is the reason we can keep the prices low.

These are the best charge controllers on the market, they are solid, reliable and what we use for The Bimble Inn.
The FLEXmax family of charge controllers is the latest innovation in Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) charge controllers from OutBack Power Technologies. The innovative FLEXmax MPPT software algorithm is both continuous and active, increasing your photovoltaic array power yield up to 30% compared to non-MPPT controllers. Thanks to active cooling and intelligent thermal management cooling, both FLEXmax charge controllers can operate at their full maximum current rating, 60 Amps or 80 Amps respectively, in ambient temperatures as high as 104°F (40°C).
Included in all of the FLEXmax Charge Controllers are the revolutionary features first developed by OutBack Power, including support for a wide range of nominal battery voltages and the ability to step-down a higher voltage solar array to recharge a lower voltage battery bank. A built-in, backlit 80 character display shows the current status and logged system performance data for the last 128 days at the touch of a button. The integrated OutBack network communications allows FLEXmax series Charge Controllers to be remotely programmed and monitored via a MATE system display and provides unrivaled complete system integration.
FLEXmax MPPT Charge Controllers are the only choice when you demand a high performance, efficient and versatile charge controller for your advanced power system.

The OutBack Power FLEXware PV combiner series sets the standard for PV balance-of-system hardware. The FLEXware PV8 and FLEXware PV12 accommodate the overcurrent protection requirements of your application. From 150VDC breakers for low voltage PV systems, to 600VDC fuse holders for high voltage PV systems, the FLEXware PV Combiner series handles it all.
Combiner series is designed to survive outdoor environments. Its rainproof, UL type 3R powder coated aluminum chassis can be mounted on a wall, sloped roof or pole. The unique angled negative terminal bus bar design makes wiring fast and easy without the larger output conductors blocking access to the smaller input terminals. Dual output lug terminals are included for up to 2/0 AWG conductors.
The new MATE3 System Display and Controller makes it easy to program and monitor a complete OutBack Power System. An intuitive and integrated system configuration wizard makes system setup and programming quick and seamless.
The ability to set unique multi-level user passwords allows the user to secure critical system settings from unintended changes, while still allowing open access to necessary functions.
The MATE3 is packed full of features to make system management simple. The easy-to-read graphical LCD display is backlit for dark operating conditions. Improved tactile buttons and a user programmable “favorite” key give you immediate access to the features you want, while an intuitive scroll wheel interface allows for easy adjustment of system setpoints. Expandable SD card memory allows you to increase data logging capacity as well as upgrade units in the field.
A built-in clock and calendar function enables timer-based programming of inverter and charger operation. All of your settings are stored in permanent memory to eliminate the need to reprogram in the event of a system shutdown or battery replacement. The MATE3 is an Internet enabled device – simply connecting to the Internet will allow full remote system.
By adding the Mate Controller you can also use the outback inverters as a off grid/grid hybrid system allowing you to use the power from your batteries primarily and switching to use the grid when your batteries are low, thus minimising your use of the grid and ensuring you get the best use of your renewable power set-up, and yet never run out of power. Or you can configure an automatic generator start from them if needed.

The HUB-10 communication manager allows the MATE to control and monitor a maximum of ten OutBack products. The inverter/chargers can be operated in a stacked or independent configuration, and OutBack MPPT charge controllers can also be used on any of the ten available ports of the HUB-10. Future OutBack products will also be compatible with the HUB-10. The HUB-10 manages both the inter-inverter communications and the MATE-inverter communication. The HUB-10 also can be used with the X-240 autotransformer when series stacked to allow full surge and continuous AC load capacity of each FX to be available on either of the 120 VAC output circuits. When two or more FX inverters are stacked in a parallel or series configuration, the system automatically turns off any excess slave inverters to save power and maximize conversion efficiency. This power save system is fully automatic and works with or without the MATE connected to the system One or two MATE system controllers and displays can be connected to the HUB. One Mate is allowed to program the systems while the other MATE is able to only control and display the system operation. When using a single MATE with a HUB-10, programming can be locked out by moving the MATE from the 1st MATE port to the 2nd MATE port once programming has been completed. The maximum distance from the HUB-10 to the power conversion product should be under 10 feet. OutBack includes two 3 foot long and two 6 foot long CAT5 cables standard with the HUB-10. Check with your OutBack dealer for additional cables.
50mm Cable - Use for connecting Batteries to Inverter M8 - M10 (M8 one end M10 on the other end)

Shell has a strong anti-aging, anti- UV capability; found in outdoor use under harsh environment requirements; according to different needs can be arbitrary and used in conjunction with a variety of cell junction box; all connections are using press-fit connection;
The OutBack Remote Temperature Sensor (RTS) is essential for proper battery charging. All OutBack Power products with integrated battery charging have temperature compensation systems built in which benefit from the installation of the RTS (included with inverter/chargers). With the RTS you can make sure that your OutBack Power System knows the precise battery temperature, so it can recharge your batteries safely and efficiently. If your system has multiple OutBack products connected to one HUB4 or HUB10, only a single RTS needs to be installed.
