1250W PowerVerter Plus Industrial-Strength Inverter with 2 Outlets

Model Number: PV1250FC


  • 12V DC input; 120V AC output; 2 outlet
  • 1250 watts continuous output
  • Peak surge output: OverPower (up to 1 hour) - 1875 watts, Double-Boost (up to 10 seconds) - 2500 watts
  • High efficiency power conversion
  • Automatic overload protection

  • 1-year limited warranty

Overview

Utilize you vehicle's battery to efficiently power work site power tools, pumps, as well as your laptop computer. Continuously supplies 1250 watts of 120VAC power to (2) AC outlets from any 12VDC battery source. Frequency control locks AC output at 60Hz for operating stability of motor loads and other inductive loads with high current startup requirements.

NOTE: To protect against high current draw that may occur during inverter failure, a fuse link rated at 200a should be positioned no more than 18" from the PV1250FC's battery in the positive line.

Features

  • Allows users to run large, motorized AC appliances from any 12V battery or automotive DC system
  • Converts 12V DC battery power to 120V AC power
  • 1,250 watts continuous output power
  • Peak output power: OverPower (up to 1 hour) - 1875 watts, Double-Boost (up to 10 seconds) - 2500 watts
  • 2 outlets; DC input terminals for 12V battery connection
  • Frequency control for operating stability
  • High-efficiency operation conserves batteries to prolong run time
  • Diagnostic LEDs indicate load level (high, medium, and low) and battery charge (high, medium, and low)
  • DC fusing protects inverter against overload
  • RJ45 port allows connection of APS/PowerVerter Remote Switch (APSRM4)
  • Automatic overload shutdown
  • Ignition interlock jack

Package Includes

  • PV1250FC inverter
  • 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.
