Outback Inverter - disable transfer switch?
I am considering replacing a Samlex inverter and IOTA battery charger with an Outback off-grid inverter at a remote cabin. Currently the IOTA charger is used to charge the batteries from a small 3000 watt generator occasionally when the sun isn't shining. From what I gather, if I connect the generator to the Outback's AC input it will switch the load to the generator when it's running. Is there any way in the Outback to disable the transfer switch so that the load always runs off inverted power while the built in charger charges the battery bank? I don't really want the loads switching back and forth between inverter and generator, and don't like the dirty generator power running my loads anyway. I thought about using the IOTA for charging instead of the Outback, but I would be changing the battery bank from 24V to 48V with this inverter upgrade, so I won't be able to use the current IOTA. I would be getting the Mate3 as well, but didn't find any settings which describes my scenario in the manual.
