700W PowerVerter Ultra-Compact Inverter with 3 Outlets

Model Number: PV700HF


  • 700W continuous output; 1400W peak output (instantaneous)
  • Converts 12V DC (battery) power into 110-120V AC (household) power; 3 AC outlets
  • Installs in minutes (integrated mounting feet included)
  • Provides a quiet alternative to generator noise and fumes
  • Includes "battery saver" low voltage alarm/shutdown
  • 1-year limited warranty

Overview

Utilize your vehicle's battery to efficiently power appliances, small electronics and office equipment on the road. Continuously supplies up to 700W of 120V AC power to 3 AC outlets from any 12V battery. Featuring an ultra-compact, lightweight design with metal housing, the PV700HF is the most rugged inverter available.

NOTE: To protect against high current draw that may occur during inverter failure, a fuse link rated at 125a should be positioned no more than 18" from the PV700HF's battery in the positive line.

Features

  • Provides 120V AC power for a variety of mobile applications
  • 700W continuous output power; 1400W peak output power (instantaneous)
  • 3 AC outlets
  • Ultra-compact extruded aluminum housing stands up to the toughest environments
  • Cooling fan lengthens inverter service life & maintains cool operation
  • Integrated mounting feet assure safe fixed installation
  • Low battery alarm/shutdown detects low battery voltage and shuts down inverter
  • Overload alarm/shutdown detects wattage overload on inverter outlets and shuts down inverter as a protective measure
  • DC input terminals provide a solid connection to battery with user-supplied cables
  • Lighted on/off switch shows inverter operations in cramped or dark environments
  • Grooved surface for more efficient cooling

Package Includes

  • PV700HF Ultra-Compact DC-to-AC Inverter
  • Instruction manual with warranty information
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.
The fans on the PV700HF run continuously to keep the unit cool.
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.
