Overview

The APSX1250 1250W APS X Series 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 1250W of continuous power, 1875W up to one hour, or 2500W 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 APSX1250 converts stored power from any 12V battery or automotive DC source to safe, stable, computer-grade AC power and sends it to two C13 outlets for unlimited runtime. When powered by an external 230V AC source, the unit keeps the user-supplied battery charged via a three-stage 7.5/30A selectable charging system while simultaneously delivering AC power to connected equipment.

When used as a UPS, the APSX1250 responds to blackouts and brownouts with an automatic, instantaneous transfer to battery-derived AC output. LEDs on the unit indicate AC/DC operational modes, overload status, DC voltage level, shutdown status and system fault status.

RELIABLE CLEAN BACK UP SOLUTION

By Kynyn

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite 1250W PowerVerter APS 12VDC 230V Inverter/Charger with Auto Transfer Switching 2 C13 Outlets:

We run an office in Kenya, with around 12 computers and other standard office equipment. Owing to constant power outages in our area of operation, we have tried using generators but they let us down due to noise, smoke and space requirements, not to mention constant fuel refilling and costly maintenance!
A friend introduced us to the APSX1250 + Batteries as a better solution and alas! We are now enjoying full days of clean, quiet and uninterrupted power.

Quality-of-life saver in Congo

By TrnsltLife

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite 1250W PowerVerter APS 12VDC 230V Inverter/Charger with Auto Transfer Switching 2 C13 Outlets:

After a year living in Brazzaville, the Republic of Congo, working with an NGO, me and my family were sick of dealing with the constant power outages. Power can go out at any time for any length of time.

While we were back in the US, I researched charger/inverter options and found the Tripp-Lite APSX1250 PowerVerter. We bought one and brought it back to Congo. With 3 1000Ah batteries attached (which we bought in Congo), we were up and running with constant power. It let us run our fans, our laptops, compact fluorescent lights, battery chargers, our LCD TV & Wii, and even occasionally small kitchen appliances when the power was out.

We do have a generator where we live, even though we can't run it all the time. But we charge up our batteries with the APSX1250 when the city power or the generator is on, and the APSX1250 keeps us electrified the rest of the time.

Thanks to Tripp-Lite's APSX1250 PowerVerter, we have a much better experience now when the city power goes out.

(Our organization also uses a Tripp-Lite APSX1250 to maintain constant power for laptops, projectors, and a wireless network in one of its offices in Brazzaville.)

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 APSX1250 model support page.
