The OutBack true sinewave GFX International Series Inverter/ Charger is a competitive power solution designed for applications with lower power demands. Incorporating a DC- to-AC sinewave inverter, battery charger and AC transfer relay housed within a die-cast aluminum chassis, the International Series GFX Inverter/Chargers give you the ability to sell solar, wind or hydro power back to the utility grid while providing instantaneous back-up power in the event of a utility outage.
The GFX International Series built in transfer relay automatically disconnects your loads from the utility grid and powers them from the inverter in the event of an outage, allowing you to continue using your solar and battery back- up power, unlike traditional grid-tie systems. For areas that frequently experience power instability such as surges, spikes or brownouts, or where standard inverters have trouble syncing to the utility grid, the GFX International Series grid reconnect timers have been set to reduce overall sell-back downtime and improve system functionality.
Intelligent multi-stage battery charging prolongs the life of your batteries and built-in networked communications allow for simultaneous communications of up to ten OutBack Power components within the system. The exclusive modular system architecture means that increased power output is just an additional inverter/ charger away. Our GFX International Series uses a sealed chassis that can operate in the harshest environmental conditions such as high humidity and corrosive salt air.
OutBack Power inverter/chargers are the only choice when you need a true-sinewave, powerful, modular and reliable power solution for your home, business or extreme application.

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.
For more information on the advantages of NiFE batteries please read our info here
Optional LED fluid level indicator (£10 per cell)
Optional Auto Fill option (£15 per cell)
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 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.
