OutBack Power Systems is proud to introduce our latest innovation: FLEXware, the next evolution of balance-of-system components.

We listened to our integrating partners, installers in the field and system owners. We took their suggestions and improved our product, from knockouts and breaker locations to more shared parts for easier ordering and stocking.

FLEXware is better integrated, modular, and more spacious than any of our previous metal hardware. Components are more versatile, there’s more space for wiring, and the all-aluminum, powder-coated construction is highly corrosion resistant for an installation that looks great even longer.

Installers can satisfy a large variety of applications by using FLEXware with OutBack's Modular power electronics . FLEXware 250 offers a solution for AC and DC disconnects in single inverter/charger installations when space and budget are primary concerns. FLEXware 500 supports up to two inverter/ chargers and two charge controllers in an attractive, versatile and code-compliant package when split-phase and/or higher power output is needed. FLEXware 1000 accommodates up to four inverter/ chargers and four charge controllers. Both FLEXware 500 and FLEXware 1000 provide locations for auto-transformers, multiple DC shunts and other items required in high power applications.

The new FLEXware MP mounting plate shows the true versatility of FLEXware with its compatibility on both FW500 and FW1000 systems. All of the FLEXware options and accessories have been redesigned and simplified, replacing multiple models with fewer, more universal solutions.

FLEXware offers more application versatility than ever before - from the simplest of back-up power systems to a large 36 kW village power systems with multiple power sources such as PV, wind, hydro and back-up generators. With OutBack Power System’s FLEXware you can really “FLEX your system.”
