Inverter Charger 2000W Automatic Transfer Switching Hardwire 230V

PowerVerter® APS INT Series 2000W Inverter/Charger with Auto-Transfer Switching and Hardwire Input/Output

Model Number: APSINT2012


  • 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

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.

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, 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)

Typical Applications

  • Ideal 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. Moisture-resistant construction enables vehicular or marine operation in high humidity environments. NOTE: For sump pump applications, Tripp Lite recommends its "UT" Utility Truck Inverter/Chargers.

Package Includes

  • APSINT2012 Inverter/Charger

Answer: 
Thank you for your inquiry. There may be an incompatibility with the waveform that the generator is putting out. Connect the APS to line power. If the APS functions on line power the problem is the waveform output of the generator.

My APSINT2012 keep resetting every minute or two, any suggestion what it may be the problem. This is a fifth year with no problem at all. I’m very happy with this product, excellent product.
One month ago it did reset by himself a few times but lately it does very often and I can’t use it at all since it keeps resetting every minute or two. I have checked the PCB and there is nothing burned on the board and it doesn’t smell that has burned something. The only suggestion is that the programed chip probably needs to be reprogramed or replaced.
Thanks!

Does not charge when plugged into AC power

We have an apsint2012 and it does not work properly when plugged in to AC power.

When on battery power only, it does provide 230 volt AC power, but does not recharge or show AC power available even though it is.

When the switch is set to "OFF" or "Charge Only" the AC power does pass through, but there are no lights and the unit does not charge the batteries.

Answers

Answer: 
The operation of the inverter cooling fan is really going to be contingent on what the draw is on the product.

As the draw on the inverters will vary from application to application, the operation time will vary as well.

Hi,

When inverter is in Auto/Remote mode, I can hear battery is always 'boiling' water because is seems that is charging all the time; config A switches are all down, and B switches are all up. Battery is 'wet' cell type 220 Ah and I have to add distilled water to it all the time because of evaporation. Can you please explain how to fix this problem so inverter detects when battery is full and make it shutdown automatically charging?

Thank you,

Answer: 
Here's the link to the owners manual for the APSINT2012:
http://www.tripplite.com/shared/techdoc/Owners-Manual/932817.pdf

Page 5 provides information on the load sense dial which will shut off the inverter in the absence of any power demand from connected equipment or appliances.

If additional assistance is required please reach out to our main product support team at 773-869-1233 option 3 or techsupport@tripplite.com.
