Design and Fabrication Procedures

P.V. Schematic Wiring plan
Every upgrade starts with a conceptual diagram. The next step is a point-to-point wiring diagram that the shop crew can follow without resorting to thinking. Certain aspects of how we configure these systems are proprietary.
The Outback mounting plates require a custom modification. The Outback FX1000 cabinets require that holes be cut.
Flexware 1000 cabinet modified for SW inverters. Flexware 1000 DC cabinet mated to the SW inverter.
The AC cabinet gets lacing strips installed to hold wiring in place. AC Cabinet interior after wiring.
AC leads in place, in the correct order, ready for connection in the field to the SW inverter. Note the "alligator" grommet to protect wiring. Full side view AC of cabinet ready for install.
IO Section
Proprietary bussing hardware completes the Input/Output/Bypass Section. A proprietary interlock completes this assembly.
