Overview

The APS700HF 700W PowerVerter APS 12V DC 120V AC Inverter/Charger is a reliable power source for a variety of small power applications ranging from power tools to 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 700W of continuous power, 1050W up to 1.5 seconds, or 1400W of peak power up to 1.1 seconds during equipment startup or cycling. An automatic overload detector, cooling fan and resettable AC circuit breaker protect the unit from damage.

Designed for easy installation in RVs, over-the-road trucks, fleet vehicles and conversion vans, the APS700HF converts stored power from any 12V battery or automotive DC source to safe, stable, computer-grade AC power and sends it to a NEMA 5-15R outlet for unlimited runtime. When powered by an external 120V AC source, the unit keeps the user-supplied battery charged via a three-stage 6A charging system while simultaneously delivering AC power to connected equipment.

When used as a UPS, the APS700HF 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.

Comments about Tripp Lite 700W PowerVerter APS 12VDC 120V Inverter/Charger with Auto-Transfer Switching 1 Outlet:

I used this for a small, reasonably priced back-up power system for a few outdoor security lights at work. The included plugs made installation a breeze. I like the LED's that give load and battery state of charge indication. It has performed exactly as it was presented by Tripplite. I will use these again in the future for our other buildings.

Frequently Asked Questions

The operating temperature range for the APS700HF is 32° to 104° F (0° to 40° C).
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.
