I think that is true and if you want more than 4k, you use the PSX???

Marco,

You might want to pursue this issue a bit further and get a definitive answer. There appears to be a difference between the X240 configuration for the PS series and that for the FlexWare series.

See: http://www.solarpanelstore.com/solar-po ... nfo.1.html
and: http://www.solarpanelstore.com/solar-po ... nfo.1.html

HTH,

I am basing it on the fact there are no vent holes in the AC box and the transformer has been moved down to near the bottom of the box and I think the fan would be too close to the back of the DIN rail assy.

The FLEXware Guide only talks about 4kw.

I could call tech support if you need further information.

Thanks
Maverick
