2000W PowerVerter APS INT 12VDC 230V Inverter/Charger with Auto Transfer Switching, Hardwired

 
Portable 2000W power source for any type of equipment from power tools to computers as a vehicle inverter, standalone AC power source or extended-run UPS. Ideal for RVs, over-the-road trucks, fleet vehicles and conversion vans.
  • Delivers clean 230V AC power from AC or DC power source
  • 2000W continuous output power; 4000W peak power
  • Auto-transfer switching option for UPS operation
  • Protects against blackouts, surges and EMI/RFI line noise
  • Rugged polycarbonate housing resists moisture and impact

Overview

The APSINT2012 2000W PowerVerter APS INT 12V DC 230V AC Inverter/Charger is a reliable power source for a wide variety of equipment ranging from power tools and pumps to portable lighting and computer equipment in heavy-load conditions. With no fumes, fuel or excess noise, it’s an excellent alternative to generator power.

The DC-to-AC inverter features an automatic line-to-battery transfer switch and integrated charging system that allow it to work as a vehicle inverter, standalone AC power source or extended-run UPS. It delivers 2000W of continuous power, 3000W up to one hour, or 4000W of peak power up to 10 seconds during equipment startup or cycling. An automatic overload detector, cooling fan and resettable AC circuit breakers protect the unit from damage.

Designed for easy installation in RVs, over-the-road trucks, fleet vehicles and conversion vans, the APSINT2012 converts stored power from any 12V battery or automotive DC source to safe, stable, computer-grade AC power for unlimited runtime in heavy-load conditions. When powered by an external AC source, the unit keeps the user-supplied battery charged via a three-stage 15/60A selectable charging system while simultaneously delivering AC power to connected equipment.

When used as a UPS, the APSINT2012 responds to blackouts and brownouts with an automatic, instantaneous transfer to battery-derived AC output. LEDs indicate AC/DC operational modes, overload status, DC voltage level, shutdown and system fault.

Frequently Asked Questions

The batteries used with the inverter should be the same voltage and amp hour rating. If you're purchasing 6 of the 98-121 (12volt, 75 amp hour) batteries you will definitely have matching batteries and shouldn't have any battery backup issues.


Additional FAQs may be available on the APSINT2012 model support page.
