Overview

Utilize your vehicle's battery to efficiently power office equipment on the road or power tools at a work site. Continuously supplies up to 3000 watts of 120V AC power to 4 AC outlets from any 12V battery or automotive DC source. Includes a PV remote and 25 feet of cable. Compact, lightweight metal case design is among the smallest, most rugged inverters available at this power level.

NOTE: To protect against high current draw that may occur during inverter failure, two fuse links rated at 250a each should be positioned no more than 18" from the PV3000HF's battery in each positive line.

Features

  • Converts DC power into 3000 watts of continuous 120V AC power
  • 15- and 20-amp outlets provide 120V AC power
  • Includes "Battery Saver" low voltage alarm/shutdown
  • Heavy-duty DC input terminals assure solid connection to battery. Dual connections provide high wattage to support heavy equipment loads.
  • Quiet electricity for TVs, DVD players, microwaves, tools, coffeemakers and game systems
  • Operating mode switch controls inverter operation.
  • Remote control jack provides optional remote monitoring and control (when used with FREE, included LED/switch module)
  • Remote Control LED/Switch Module controls and monitors your inverter from virtually anywhere within your vehicle with use of included extra-long cable. Allows multiple mounting options, including behind or below a dashboard or compartment. Features daisy-chain capability
  • Battery charge level LEDs indicate the approximate charge level (high/medium/low) of connected batteries
  • Connected load level LEDs indicate the approximate wattage load level (high/medium/low) of connected equipment
  • Sturdy extruded aluminum case stands up to the toughest work environments
  • Battery conservation charge dial conserves battery power by setting the low-load level at which the inverter automatically shuts off
  • Cooling fans provide cooler operation, lengthening inverter service life
  • Circuit breakers guard the inverter against potentially damaging equipment overload
  • Mounting flanges provide safe, fixed installation
  • Grooved cooling surface provides additional surface area for more efficient cooling
  • Grounding lug connects to vehicle ground

Package Includes

  • PV3000HF Inverter
  • Remote control LED/switch module (APSRM4)
  • 25-ft. cable
  • Warranty information
  • Instruction manual

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.
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.
