Overview

The APSINT3636VR 3600W APS INT Series 36V DC 230V 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 APSINT3636VR converts stored power from any 36V battery or automotive DC source to safe, stable, computer-grade AC power for unlimited runtime. When hardwired to 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 APSINT3636VR’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.

Frequently Asked Questions

The operating temperature range for the APSINT3636VR is 0 degrees celsius (32 degrees fahrenheit) to 40 degrees celsius (104 degrees fahrenheit).
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.
