hello i finaly have an electricien on site right now , we need a little help understanding how to wire the byepass breakers circuit for automatic transfer to generator power, i am not talking about the relay and two wire start signal.  the inverter is an outback VFX3024e, unfortunately whilst there products are good quality there manuals are not too friendly, i am posting questions on there site also so hopefully between the two sites we will understand more, any light on this well apprecieted.

I also found most RE forums from the US very unfriendly. Very intolerant of silly newbie questions.

Rog  i know the feeling when starting to connect expensive gear together (for the first time)  and remember the day well (about 3 years ago )   and my friend  an electrician  had not much more of a clue then me  Grin of understanding the whole lot  Tongue

I was  hibernating   help quite a bit

I wounder if outback do have a help line to ring  , i found Victron in Holland very good ( much better then the crowd i bought the Victron  gear of)

Anyhow  what i learned from that posting is that i never thought about the idea of bypassing the inverter/charger  to run the generator direct into the house  when the Inverter is of ,or broken ...

I guess thats what my electician wanted to do  from the start  Grin   and leave this bloody complicated box (inverter) and heavy batteries out of the game

Today he asks me for a windturbine and where to get a battery  Grin

All the best and have a drink when you switch on the light in the house powered by the sun
