Overview

The APSX6048VRNET 6000W APS X Series 48V DC 208/230V AC Inverter/Charger is a reliable power source for a wide variety of power tools, computers, audio/video components and other sensitive electronics at mobile, emergency and remote sites. With no fumes, fuel or excess noise, it’s an excellent alternative to generator power.

The DC-to-AC pure sine-wave inverter delivers clean power to sensitive electronics. Its automatic line-to-battery transfer switch and integrated charging system allow the unit to work as a vehicle inverter, standalone AC power source or extended-run UPS. It delivers 6000W of continuous power, 9000W up to one minute or 12000W 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 APSX6048VRNET converts stored power from a 48V battery or automotive DC source to safe, stable, computer-grade AC power for unlimited runtime in heavy-load conditions. When hardwired to an external 208V or 230V AC source, the unit keeps the user-supplied battery charged via a three-stage 23/90A selectable charging system while simultaneously delivering conditioned, pure sine-wave AC power to connected equipment.

When used as a UPS, the APSX6048VRNET responds to blackouts and brownouts with an automatic, instantaneous transfer to battery-derived, pure sine-wave AC power. The optional SNMPWEBSOLOHV accessory card enables remote monitoring of the unit via SNMP, SSH, Telnet, and Internet.

Frequently Asked Questions

Batteries are not included with any Tripp Lite inverter or inverter/charger.
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.
