Model Number: APSINT3636VR


  • 36V DC or 230V AC input; 230V, 50 Hz output (hardwired)
  • 3600 watts continuous, 5400 watts OverPower and 7200 watts DoubleBoost inverter output (see specifications)

  • Automatic Voltage Regulation corrects brownouts and overvoltages without using battery power

Tripp Lite's APSINT3636VR DC-to-AC inverter with automatic line-to-battery transfer and integrated charging system serves as an extended run UPS, a standalone power source or an automotive inverter. Supplies up to 3600 watts of continuous 230V AC power from any 36V battery or automotive DC source. When hardwire AC input is energized, commercial power passes through to connected equipment and the battery set is recharged via 3 stage, 30 amp charging system. In UPS mode, the APS system responds to blackouts and severe voltage fluctuations with a near instantaneous automatic transfer to battery-derived AC output. Includes a set of high current DC input terminals for simple installation (user supplies batteries and cabling - see owner's manual for recommendations). Passes sine wave utility or generator power during battery charging and UPS line power operation, plus efficient PWM sine wave AC output in inverter and UPS backup modes. Built-in Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) corrects line power AC brownouts and overvoltages without using battery power during battery charging and UPS standby modes. Reliable large transformer design, with frequency control powers resistive electronic loads or large inductive motors, compressors and other items with high current needs on startup. Included APSRM4 wired remote power switch with full status LEDs provides remote power inverter on/off switching and continuous status information (APSRM4 included). Supports an unlimited amount of runtime with any number of user-supplied batteries connected. Highly adaptable to a variety of applications and site conditions with adjustable charger settings for wet/gel battery types and selectable line to battery power transfer voltages.

Key Features

  • Supports 230V AC output from a 230V AC line power source or 12V DC battery source
  • 20 millisecond automatic transfer between line and battery power supports UPS protection during blackouts and voltage fluctuations for equipment compatible with a one cycle transfer time
  • Double Boost inverter output supports momentary startup loads up to 200% of the continuous rating for up to 10 seconds (see specification chart)
  • OverPower inverter output supports longer duration overloads to 150% for 1-60 minutes under ideal battery and temperature conditions.
  • 3 stage, 30 amp battery charger with adjustable settings for wet/gel battery types offers fast, reliable battery recharging
  • 3 position operating mode switch supports "AUTO" mode to enable automatic transfer between DC and AC modes, CHARGE-ONLY to maintain a full battery charge when AC is present without auto transfer and SYSTEM OFF settings
  • Set of six front panel LEDs display AC/DC operational modes, overload status, DC voltage level, shutdown status and system fault status
  • Set of 4 configuration dipswitches support wet/gel battery charging profiles, adjustable 259/264V high voltage auto transfer during overvoltages and selectable 144/163/182/201V AC low voltage auto transfer during brownouts
  • Set of 4 additional configuration dip switches support 4 levels of charger limiting relative to output load size
  • Resettable 10A charger AC input breaker and resettable 15A AC output breaker and automatic 2 speed cooling fan protect the inverter from load and temperature related failures
  • Automatic overload and thermal shutoff safely turns off inverter as excessive loads or overheating conditions develop
  • Front panel remote control connector enables remote off/on switching (requires APSRM4 switch accessory)

Typical Applications

  • Versatile inverter/charger system with auto-transfer switching serves as an automotive inverter for RVs, over-the-road trucking, conversion vans and fleet service vehicles; a standalone alternative power source for off-grid, alternative energy or export applications and as an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) for items compatible with a 20 millisecond transfer time. NOTE: For sump pump applications, Tripp Lite recommends its "UT" Utility Truck Inverter/Chargers.

Package Includes

  • APSINT3636VR Inverter/Charger
  • Instruction manual with warranty information
  • Wired Remote Switch with full LED status indicators (model APSRM4)

Answer: 
Thank you for your inquiry. You should check with HP to find out if this server requires a pure sine wave to operate. The APSINT3636VR outputs a modified sine wave which may not be adequate for your servers power supply. If you have further questions contact Tripp Lite Technical Support.

What wattage generator?

I have this inverter setup with 6 batteries. However our power outages often outlast it. How many watts would a backup generator have to be to charge the batteries (or stop the draining)? We have a 6500W generator that makes little difference to the runtime.

Thanks

Answers

Answer: 
The size of the generator will be determined by the total load capacity of the equipment being supported. Make sure that the generator used in conjunction with the APSINT3636VR outputs computer grade power. This is required by the APSINT3636VR in order for the inverter/charger to function as designed. If the inverter does not detect the output of the generator it will continue to run on battery until the batteries are depleted.

Answer: 
In order to determine compatibility between the air conditioner unit as well as how much runtime can be provided with 3 Ritar 150aH batteries, we will need to know the continuous and peak power draw, in watts or amps, of the air conditioner.
