Trust the engineers at Outback to build such a breakthrough in the field of advanced power conversion, processing and control.

Ease-of-installation makes this energy solution ideal for anyone interested in building their solar power system with battery storage.
Model: SBX5048-120/240

The SkyBox is a 5kW AC output inverter at its core, with two built-in advanced MPPT solar charge controllers for your PV array (up to 6kW!). SkyBox installs like a grid-tied inverter, but with support for energy storage, which is easy to install later. Compatible with the latest battery technologies like lithium, SkyBox is highly flexible – so you can use grid-tied solar today, then add batteries at a later time, and go off the grid completely.

SkyBox allows you to enjoy the benefits of a grid-tied PV system with the independence of an off-grid system. Ideal for anyone looking for back-up energy while working with Net Metering programs. Or simply program the SkyBox to maximize your internal household energy consumption from solar/battery, thereby minimizing your utility purchase each month.

Outback’s OPTICS RE monitoring is always in view on the LED display, or anywhere with an internet connection.

SkyBox Highlights
  • Easy and fast to install, a clean balance-of-systems, all in one box
  • Extensive quality and reliability testing, including Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT)
  • Dynamic power management with the ability to support any new regulations
  • Backup power and support for time-of-use optimization
  • Compliant with California rule 21 and Hawaii 14H grid support requirements
  • Energy management based on time-of-use and demand charge rate structures to reduce total energy costs
  • External current transformers provide three key functions –
  • Compliance where the utility does not allow power to be fed back to the grid (Net-zero Export)
  • Renewable Energy Credit (REC) monitoring for added revenue from participating utilities
  • Energy management based on time of use and demand charge rate structures to reduce total energy costs
  • EMS integration
    • Configurable battery discharge current limit
    • Lithium SoC Tracking
    • Drop down menu for quick selection of third-party lithium (SimpliPhi, Blue Ion, etc)
  • CSIP certified with firmware version 1.5 and above
SkyBox Battery Compatibility

The following batteries are supported with EMS 2.0:

  • All EnerSys Lead-Acid
  • Discover AES
  • Blue Ion 2.0
  • Fortress eVault
  • Simpliphi PHI 3.5/3.8
  • Alt-E KiloVault HLX

Of course, you can use just about any lead-acid AGM, tubular gel, nano-carbon, or other battery platform.

SkyBox Operating Mode Summary
  • Time-Of-Use Optimization – serve loads from PV 1st, then use least expensive power available (ie. from Grid or Battery)
  • Self Consumption – serve loads from PV 1st (PV production is automatically adjusted to match load).  Also ensures no power flow to the Grid if Export is prohibited.
  • Net Metering with Battery Backup – excess PV generation is sold back to the Grid when available
