Overview

The APS3636VR 3600W PowerVerter APS 36V DC 120V AC Inverter/Charger is a reliable power source for a wide variety of equipment ranging from power tools, pumps and portable lighting to laptop computers and sensitive monitoring equipment. 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 3600W of continuous power, 5400W up to one hour, or 7200W 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, commercial and fleet vehicles, emergency vehicles and construction equipment, the APS3636VR converts stored power from any 36V battery or automotive DC source to computer-grade AC power for unlimited runtime. When hardwired to an external 120V AC source, the unit keeps the user-supplied battery charged via a three-stage 30A charging system while simultaneously delivering AC power to connected equipment.

When used as a UPS, the APS3636VR’s automatic voltage regulation feature protects your equipment against blackouts, brownouts, surges and line noise. Tripp Lite’s APSRM4 module with “traffic light” LEDs is included to provide complete remote monitoring and control of the unit.

Comments about Tripp Lite 3600W PowerVerter APS 36VDC 120V Inverter/Charger with Auto-Transfer Switching Line-Interactive AVR:

when i need this kind of verter i went to the market and look for these kind of it verter from many of shops , when i saw your product i ask about it ,they give me a lot of Characteristics , i was impressed by my brother and I asked where he was an electronic engineer and impressed by the specifications and advised me in your equipment.
I asked also an electrical engineer who works for the institution that I work with and advised me your equipment because my foundation used the same kind yours.
I live in the Republic of Yemen in Sana'a city and work in the Social Fund for Development and since our city is under power outages always The Fund uses the devices to store electricity, as well as most of the houses, and since I lived in my new house you need to stockist of electricity so I can take advantage of the electricity in case of interruption

excellent product

Comments about Tripp Lite 3600W PowerVerter APS 36VDC 120V Inverter/Charger with Auto-Transfer Switching Line-Interactive AVR:

I use an APS3636VR with 3 AGM deep cycle batteries to provide backup power for our house in the Bahamas. The inverter powers our water pump, refrigerator, coffee pot, lights in the living areas and fans. It switches automatically when the city power fails, takes care of the recharging of the batteries in a trouble free way. The only problem I have had is that it will not drive the long internet cable supplied with the remote control unit. When I use a short (3 ft) cable it works well.

Frequently Asked Questions

The APS2012 will run off generator power as long as the output of the generator meets the input requirements for that unit. That requirement is a nominal 120vac at 60hz.
 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.
Thank you for your inquiry. The APSX1250 does support 3 stage charging with equalization.
APS-series inverters include a built-in battery charger. See our Inverter Buying Guide on tripplite.com for additional information and help with selection.
