OutBack Power s acclaimed Radian Series made the benefits of Grid/Hybrid technology available and accessible in one agile powerful, platform ideal for nearly all off-grid or grid-connected system architectures.
The new Radian Series inherit the hallmark features of the original design, including: dual AC inputs for grid/generator flexibility with no external switching required, unparalleled surge capability and operational stability, easy field upgradeability and stacking capability for large system scaling, simplified system commissioning through a powerful, easy-to-use configuration wizard, and multi-mode operational flexibility.
In addition, the GS8048A has a new Advanced Battery Charging (ABC) profile option to support leading-edge battery technologies such as Lithium-Ion and others, and enhanced diagnostics for improved performance. It incorporate OutBack s GridZero technology, a superior level of intelligence in energy management for self-generation and self-consumption programs, providing precise balancing between using stored energy, solar and utility power, blending-in the latter to overcome surges and load spikes when needed. GridZero operation makes it possible for a smaller inverter and battery system to perform like a much larger one when required, putting stored and renewable energy sources to work and minimizing grid dependence. GridZero technology make the new Radians ideal for use in complex utility environments such as California and Hawaii.
The GS8048A also support AC-coupling through a compatible OutBack load center to provide an economical solution for upgrading existing grid-tied systems to battery back-up capability. Complete system interfacing using the OutBack MATE3 and HUB communications manager enables the Radian to be connected with other OutBack Power electronics providing industry leading integration and a scalable power solution. Up to 10 units can be connected in parallel for systems up to 80kW continuous power output.
The GS8048A is certified to UL1741 for US applications, and CSA C22.2 No. 107.1 for Canada, and is IEC 62109-1 certified to meet the most stringent worldwide PV safety and emission standards.
