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.

Key Features

  • Allows users to run large, motorized AC appliances from any 12V battery or automotive DC system
  • Converts 12V DC battery power to 120V AC power
  • 2000W continuous output power
  • Peak surge output: OverPower (up to 1 hour) 3000W, Double-Boost (up to 10 seconds) 4000W
  • 2 x NEMA 5-15/20R outlets; DC input terminals for 12V battery connection
  • Frequency control for operating stability
  • High-efficiency operation conserves batteries to prolong runtime
  • Diagnostic LEDs indicate load level (high, medium, and low) and battery charge (high, medium, and low)
  • DC fusing protects inverter against overload
  • High-impact polycarbonate housing
  • RJ45 port allows connection of APS/PowerVerter Remote Switch (APSRM4)
  • Grounding lug properly connects the inverter system to earth ground or vehicle grounding system
  • Load sense function enables automatic inverter shutoff and startup as connected equipment is powered off and on.

Best inverter I've ever owned

By

Comments about Tripp Lite PowerVerter® Plus 2000W Industrial-Strength Inverter with 2 Outlets:

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.

Comments about Tripp Lite PowerVerter® Plus 2000W Industrial-Strength Inverter with 2 Outlets:

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 .

Comments about Tripp Lite PowerVerter® Plus 2000W Industrial-Strength Inverter with 2 Outlets:

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.

This is a POWER HOUSE!!

Comments about Tripp Lite PowerVerter® Plus 2000W Industrial-Strength Inverter with 2 Outlets:

I use this inverter in my ice cream truck! It powers 2 freezers, a under counter counter fridge and a fan 100% of the time when I am driving! At times I have also ran a coffee pot, micro and a pretzel warmer at the same time as the other appliances! The inverter has NEVER let me down! The inverter is 2 years old and works as well as day 1! That is why I call this a POWER HOUSE!

Comments about Tripp Lite PowerVerter® Plus 2000W Industrial-Strength Inverter with 2 Outlets:

I've had my PV2000FC for 2 years now and it has never missed a beat. I'm a truck driver, so it almost never gets shut off. My 4.6 cu. ft. refrigerator runs all the time. I use a laser printer, microwave, crock pot, coffee maker, etc in the truck. It also has no interference with my cb radio, that is very important to a truck driver. This is the finest inverter I've ever had.

And they STILL make these...

By

Comments about Tripp Lite PowerVerter® Plus 2000W Industrial-Strength Inverter with 2 Outlets:

I have been using one of these for many years. It was mounted in a vehicle, running a rack of computers and other gear. It finally bit the dust about a week ago, after we found a dead cell in the battery it kept charged for over 7 years. The hallmark of a great product is time. There is such a demand for this kind of device, so everyone makes them. I went back to the workhorse that has served me this long, and THEY STILL MAKE THESE!!!

Wow! This is an INVERTER!!!

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite PowerVerter® Plus 2000W Industrial-Strength Inverter with 2 Outlets:

Using this as a dedicated unit to power a 21 Cu ft domestic refrig/freezer in our RV. This inverter is a quality piece. It's big and heavy and doesn't cause any electrical system surges or voltage drops when the refrig starts up. Fan is quiet and variable speed allows only cooling when necessary. The remote control panel face is a bit large, but OK. Although the remote is set up to mount without the face, mounting flanges on the base and the control wire plugs don't make this too practical. The inverter is just what I was looking for after burning up 2 other competitor's brands that were "supposed to work".
