Industrial Strength Inverter 2000W 2 Outlets

PowerVerter® Plus 2000W Industrial-Strength Inverter with 2 Outlets

Model Number: PV2000FC


  • Designed for heavy duty and motor loads
  • 12V DC input; 120V AC output; 2 outlets
  • 2000W continuous output
  • Peak surge output: OverPower (up to 1 hour)—3000W, Double-Boost (up to 10 seconds)—4000W
  • High-efficiency power conversion
  • Automatic overload protection

Utilize your vehicle's battery to efficiently power office equipment on the road or power tools at a work site. Continuously supplies up to 2000W of 120V AC power to 2 AC outlets from any 12V battery or automotive DC source. Frequency control locks AC output at 60Hz for operating stability of motor loads. Includes a set of high-current DC input terminals for simple, permanent installation. Highly reliable large transformer design specializes in powering motors and other inductive loads with high-current startup needs. Built-in RJ45 port allows connection of APS/PowerVerter Remote Switch (APSRM4)
OPTIONAL FEATURES: Optional load sense function enables automatic inverter shutoff and startup as connected equipment is powered off and on. Front panel load sense potentiometer can be set to shut off or turn on inverter power in response to loads of any level. Ignition Switch Control Jack connects inverter to vehicle ignition system to automatically control inverter. Inverter ON/OFF Relay Jack connects to a user-supplied on/off indicator for remote visual status of the operation of the inverter.

NOTE: To protect against high current draw that may occur during inverter failure, a fuse link rated at 400a should be positioned no more than 18" from the PV2000FC's battery in the positive line.

Best inverter I've ever owned As a cross country truck driver, I need clean power in my truck. The PV2000 has plenty of power to spare for me. In the truck I use a 4.6 cu.ft. refrigerator, microwave, George Foreman grill, crockpot, electric skillet and lighting. It doesn't interfere with the cb radio at all. I've had it for 3 years now and it has never missed a beat. October 7, 2014
built like a battle ship got my frist trip lite, pv 100 in 1962 best darn thing I ever had..got a fc2000 and it lives up to its name.runs everything with out a hiccup..the only prob. I have is with my Lafayette power amp.the transformer over heats.and its a classic, so I don't use it..everything else runs fine (the amp works great on outside power) June 20, 2014
PV2000FC This unit works great . Running two RV deep cycles and a 250Amp Hehr charging system . it is installed in a service truck . last summer we lost power on the west side of Lexington . I had two 6500 BTU/HR window units , one household fridge , and one commercial cooler, plus lighting it did great. Had about 2500 watts peak on it and ran about six hours not a problem . only issue i can see with the unit is (Shaded pole motors run at about 80% speed even with 60Hz ) im sure that is due to PWM. runs Perm split capacitors like its on house power AKA Compressors , Fans , power tools , microwaves and most important Electronics . Thank you trip lite for making a sound Inverter . December 6, 2013
Used in Locksmith service vans dault. These are amazing units. They are quite and reliable. We use them daily for running drills, key cutting equipment and lap tops with no problems at all. We also had another brand that spins and is much louder. We much prefer these units. September 12, 2013

Cooling fan question

I understand the cooling fan comes on to safely cool the unit under load. Is this thermostatically controlled? If so, how much power can you use without tripping the fan to on?
For example: My Panasonic radio phone uses 500mw at most. I would prefer to not drive a cooling fan for small loads like this. Similarly, could we run one or two 12 watt fluorescent bulbs without the fan coming on?
In other words, is there always fan cooling or will convection cooling suffice for small loads?
Thank you.

Answers

Answer: 
The fan is thermostatically controlled and will not run until needed. In addition, it is a variable speed fan that will only run at the speed necessary to coll the unit. Not having the internal wiring specifics, I don't know how much power the variable speed fan feature will save. I use the unit on a household refrigerator and when the fridge is not running, opening the doors (turning on internal lights) does not run the fan.

Answer: 
Thank you for your inquiry. The cooling fans are thermostatically controlled and therefore are activated at certain internal temperature ranges, not by the amount of power supported by the unit.

Pure Sine Wave?

I have been looking at this model for my shop truck. I must run a computer controlled machine in the field. Does the PV2000FC generate a pure sine wave output?

Answers

Answer: 
No, it is not even remotely a sine wave. It simply cycles between positive DC output, zero output, Negative DC output, and back to zero output -- repeating this cycle 60 time a second. As the load increases, the DC voltage levels will droop, so the duration of the Positive and Negative DC on-times will increase (with a like reduction in the zero-output times) to maintain a theoretical RMS voltage. It's OK for some incandescent light bulbs and motors, but otherwise a rather brutal and crude way to run anything of value.

Thank you for your inquiry. The Battery Charge Conserver (or Load Sense function) is an optional adjustment, but the PV2000FC comes with this as a standard feature.

Correct Inverter Choice?

I have a 21 cu ft KitchenAid refrigerator/freezer in my RV that I want to run on a dedicated inverter (nothing else on the inverter). Refrig indicates 6.5A total load. Would this inverter be an appropriate unit to use for this refrigerator? Can I use it in a Load Sense mode? RV has 6 6V deep cycle batteries and solar panels supplemented by an auto-start 7.5 KW generator.

[FAQ-777] What is the difference between the HF series and FC series inverters?

Because they are able to support an overpower situation for an hour, FC series inverters are better suited for industrial or heavy-duty devices. HF series inverters are not capable of supporting overpower situations for more than 500 milliseconds.[Last Updated: Mar 23, 2009]
