Overview

Utilize your vehicle's battery to efficiently power office equipment on the road or power tools at a work site. Continuously supplies up to 1800 watts of 120V AC power to 4 AC outlets from any 12V battery or automotive DC source. Includes a set of nut-and-bolt style DC terminals for simple installation. Compact, lightweight metal case design is among the smallest, most rugged inverters available at this power level.

NOTE: To protect against high current draw that may occur during inverter failure, a fuse link rated at 250a should be positioned no more than 18" from the PV1800HF's battery in the positive line.

Features

  • Allows users to run AC appliances from a properly sized 12V battery or automotive DC system
  • Converts 12V DC battery power to 120V AC power
  • 1800 watts continuous output power; 3600 watts peak output power (instantaneous)
  • 4 outlets
  • Compact, lightweight design with grooved surface for efficient cooling, all-metal housing
  • Diagnostic LEDs indicates low battery voltage level and load level
  • Low battery alarm with auto-shutoff prevents deep battery discharge
  • High-efficiency operation conserves batteries to prolong run time
  • Cooling fan regulates internal temperature and prolongs unit service life

Package Includes

  • PV1800HF Inverter
  • Warranty information
  • Instruction manual
RoHS compliant

Frequently Asked Questions

FC-series inverters are able to support an overpower situation for an hour, so they are better suited for industrial or heavy-duty devices. HF-series inverters are not capable of supporting overpower situations for more than 500 milliseconds.
APS series inverters can accept and pass AC input power. They also have a built in battery charger circuit.
Yes, we offer Pure Sine Wave Inverters. Visit our Inverters product category and filter for Pure Sine Wave Output. A pure sine wave inverter produces a smooth, sinusoidal AC output with a low level of distortion for better performance. A PWM (Pulse Width Modulated) Wave inverter produces a multi-step AC output that approximates a sinusoidal AC output with a higher level of distortion.
APS-series inverters include a built-in battery charger. See our Inverter Buying Guide on tripplite.com for additional information and help with selection.
