Outback Inverter Charger 3000Watt 48Volt 45Amp

Outback 3000Watt 48Volt 45amp Inverter Charger - VFX3048


The Outback VFX3048 is a modular "building block” sine wave inverter/charger that can be used for both small and large power systems. The OutBack VFX3048 inverter/charger is a complete power conversion system - DC to AC inverter, battery charger and AC transfer switch. Additional FX inverter/chargers can be connected at any time in either parallel, or three-phase configurations. The OutBack VFX3048 is designed to survive harsh environments anywhere in the world. Our unique sealed, gasketed die-cast aluminium chassis protects and keeps the power conversion components cool - without requiring outside air to be blown through the sensitive electronics. This reduces the major causes of inverter failure - corrosion, dust, insect and animal damage.


OutBack Power Systems is an engineer-owned, customer focused, power systems equipment manufacturer. Our engineers all have decades of power conversion design and equipment installation experience. We share a passion for leading the industry into a new era of balance of systems equipment performance, ease of use, and standardization. Our mission is to be a leading manufacturer of power electronic products for renewable energy, back-up power and vehicle applications. The goals for OutBack Power Systems is to offer high value product with the best possible performance while operating reliably in severe environmental conditions. OutBack Power System's goal is also to support our customers and their applications with an exceptional level of technical support and customer service.
