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

 
  • 12V DC or 230V AC input; 230V, 50 Hz output (hardwired)
  • 2000 watts continuous, 3000 watts OverPower and 4000 watts DoubleBoost inverter output (see specifications)
  • 3 stage, selectable 15/60 amp wet/dry cell battery charger
  • Auto Transfer Switching option for battery backup / UPS operation
  • Reliability enhanced large-transformer design with protected DC and AC wiring terminals

Overview

Tripp Lite's APSINT2012 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 2000 watts of continuous 230V AC power from any 12V 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, selectable 15/60 amp charging system. In UPS mode, the APS system responds to blackouts and 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. 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. Optional APSRM4 wired remote power switch with full status LEDs provides remote power inverter on/off switching and continuous status information(APSRM4 sold separate). 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.

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, 15/60 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)

Package Includes

  • APSINT2012 Inverter/Charger
  • Instruction manual with warranty information

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.
