The OutBack FX series is a modular "building block sine wave inverter/charger that can be used for both small and large power systems. Each OutBack FX 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 (120 VAC), series (120/240 VAC), or three-phase (120Y208 VAC) configurations. This allows a system to be tailored to meet the specific power conversion requirements of the application, both at the time of the installation and in the future. The OutBack FX series is also available in export versions with 230 VAC, 50 hz output that can be connected in parallel (230 VAC) or in three phase (230Y400 VAC) configurations.
Note: The FX2548 has the same basic features as the FX2024 with the exception of input voltage & power output.
The FX Series Inverter complete with FX-DCC (DC Connections Cover), FX-DCA (DC Conduit Adapter), and FX-ACA (AC Adapter).
The OutBack FX is designed to survive harsh environments anywhere in the world. Our unique sealed, gasketed die-cast aluminum 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. The FX can be used in high ambient applications up to 60°C with reduced output ratings. A "Turbo" option is available with FX inverters. This consists of an external cooling fan and baffels to enhance operation in hot conditions. The new VFX Series with internal ventilation will function even better in hot conditions.
The OutBack FX series inverter/charger system
is designed for both residential and commercial stand-alone or back-up
power applications with battery energy storage. It is designed to operate
as a coordinated system with the other OutBack products i.e. the PSDC,
PSAC and PSR enclosures as well as the MX60 MPPT charge controllers
and MATE system controller and display. If the MATE is going to be controlling
several devices at once a HUB-4 or HUB-10 will be required. The Remote
Temperature Sensor, or RTS should be used to enhance battery charging.
FXA a package of all three.

If the inverter model you're interested in doesn't appear in the above table, chech the Product Documentation section above.
The FX inverter/charger includes a AC wiring compartment with both a removable cover and AC conduit plate. Depending on the type of installation, the AC conduit plate may or may not be used.
The FXs DC terminals are made from solid brass. The threads are M8 x 1.25. The black terminal is negative and red is positive.
This is an FX Inverter unit with the "Turbo" option in place. The external ventilation improves the operating efficiency of the inverter, yet maintains the air tight seal which protects internal components for dust and corrosion.
The following drawing provides the mounting and overall dimensions of the FX inverter/charger. The first dimension is inches and the second value in parenthesis is the metric value in millimeters.

Here are some tips from the altE staff
- How fast can an Outback FX series inverter switch to providing backup power when the grid goes down?
- The delay time is user adjustable between a minimum of 14 milliseconds and a maximum of 2 seconds.
