Ground fault detection and interruption is required by the NEC as a safety precaution. The OutBack PV Ground-Fault Detection and Interruption System protects wiring and system components for one, two or four PV arrays when used in a GSLC, FLEXware 250, FLEXware 500 or FLEXware 1000. Front panel mount with stud terminals on the back. Ring Terminals

NOTICE: The PNL-GFDI-80 series ground fault breakers that are included in many prewired load centers and FP systems are NOT rated for use on circuits shared with an FM100-300VDC! The FM100-300VDC charge controller is equipped with an internal ground-fault protection device and simply requires 300-VDC rated overcurrent protection on its input and output circuits. The PNL-100/125-300VDC series breakers are recommended for the battery side and the PNL-40/60/80-300VDC series breakers are recommended for the PV array side. Due to the different voltage ratings, OutBack Power does not recommend mixing the FM100-300VDC with the FM60 or FM80-150VDC controllers on the same battery bank. Be sure to thoroughly review installation instructions when installing OutBack Power equipment.
