How Your CobraMarine™ Power Inverter Works
The CobraMarine™ Power Inverter is an electronic product that has been designed and
built to take low voltage DC (Direct Current) power from your boat, RV or automobile
by simply connecting the power inverter to the cigarette lighter socket (or connecting
directly to other low voltage power supplies) and CONVERT it to standard 115 volt AC
(Alternating Current) power like the current you have in your home. This conversion
process thereby allows you to use many of your household appliances and electronic
products in automobiles, RVs, boats, tractors, trucks and virtually anywhere else.

Introduction
Important Safety Information
WARNING Power inverters contain components that may produce arcs
or sparks. To prevent fire or explosion, do not install the inverter in areas
or compartments containing batteries or flammable materials or in locations
that require ignition-protected equipment.
WARNING To reduce the risk of fire, do not cover or obstruct the ventilation
openings. Do not install inverter in zero-clearance compartment.
Warning: Wash Hands After Handling Power Cord
The power cord on this product contains lead, a chemical known in the state
of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Introduction
Important Safety Information
CobraMarine™ M400 Output Waveform
The output waveform is referred to as “square wave” or “modified sine wave.” It is a
stepped waveform designed to have characteristics similar to the sine wave shape of
utility power. A waveform of this nature is suitable for most AC loads (including linear
and switching power suppliers used in electronic equipment, transformers and motors).
Some very sensitive electronic equipment may not operate satisfactorily on “square
wave” or “modified sine wave.”
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) Outlet
Test the GFCI periodically to make sure it is operating properly
(see page 14 for details).
Caution: Rechargeable Appliances
Certain chargers for small nickel cadmium batteries can be damaged if connected to
the CobraMarine™ M400 Power Inverter. Two (2) particular types of equipment are
prone to this problem:
1. Small battery-operated appliances such as flashlights,
Plug In Directly
razors, and night lights that can be plugged directly into
an AC receptacle to recharge.
Dangerous Voltages
2. Certain battery chargers for battery packs used in hand
power tools. These chargers have a WARNING label stating
that dangerous voltages are present at the battery terminals.
This problem does not occur with the vast majority of battery-operated equipment.
Most use a separate charger or transformer that is plugged into the AC receptacle
and produces a low voltage output. If the label on the AC adapter or charger states
that it produces a low voltage AC or DC output (less than 30 volts), the inverter
will have no problem powering the adapter safely.

Installation
Connecting Cables
Connecting Cables
Power wire and wiring are very important to the performance of the inverter.
Because the inverter has a low voltage, high current input, low resistance wiring
is essential between the battery and inverter. This is so it can deliver the maximum
amount of energy to the load. Only use the cables provided with your power inverter.

Connecting Cables
CAUTION Reverse polarity connections (positive to negative) will blow internal
fuses in the inverter and may permanently damage the unit. Such damage is
not covered by the warranty.
CAUTION Remove any jewelry (watch, ring, etc.). Be careful not to short circuit
the battery with any metallic object (wrench, etc.).
WARNING You may observe a spark when making the connection because
current can flow to charge the capacitors in the inverter. Do not make this
connection in the presence of flammable fumes. Explosion or fire may result.
Thoroughly ventilate the battery compartment before making this connection.
Installation
Power Consumption
Power Consumption
•
For each piece of equipment you will be operating from the inverter, you must
determine the battery’s reserve capacity (how long the battery can deliver a
specific amount of current — in automotive batteries, usually 25 amperes) or
ampere-hour capacity (a measure of how many amperes a battery can deliver
for a specified length of time).
Example – Reserve capacity: a battery with a reserve capacity of 180 minutes
can deliver 25 amperes for 180 minutes before it is completely discharged.
Example – Ampere-hour capacity: a battery with an ampere-hour capacity of
100 ampere-hours can deliver 5 amperes for 20 hours before it is completely
discharged.
To Determine the Battery Ampere-Hour Capacity You Require:
1. Determine how many watts each piece of equipment consumes. This can normally
be found on the product label. If only the current draw is given, multiply the current
draw by 115 to get the watt consumption.
2. Estimate the time (in hours) that each piece of equipment will be running between
battery charging cycles.
3. Calculate the total watt-hours of energy consumption (power x operating time) using
the average power consumption and the total estimated running time (in hours).
Power x Operating Time = Watt-Hours.
Laptop
100 Watts x 2 hours
= 200 Watt-Hours
TV/VCR (up to 25")
115 Watts x 3 hours
= 345 Watt-Hours
Blender
300 Watts x 15 minutes
= 75 Watt-Hours
4. Divide the watt-hours by ten (10) to determine how many power supply’s
(12 volt) ampere-hours will be consumed.

Installation
Ground Wiring
Ground Wiring
There is a screw on the rear panel for Chassis Ground. This is to connect the chassis
of the inverter to ground.
The Chassis Ground Screw must be connected to a grounding point, which will vary
depending on where the unit is installed. Use a #8 AWG copper wire (preferably with
green/yellow insulation) to connect the chassis ground screw to the grounding point.
Power On or Off
Operation
•
Turning Your Inverter On or Off
•
Be sure to have your power inverter properly installed before attempting to
turn the unit On (see “Installation” page 6).
To Turn the Power Inverter On:
1. If a DC power supply is being used as the power source, switch it On.
2. On the left side panel, switch the On/Off Switch to On.
Chassis Ground
On/Off Switch to On
In a Vehicle:
Connect the Chassis Ground to the chassis of the vehicle.
In a Boat:
Connect to the Boat Grounding System.
In a Fixed Location:
Connect the Chassis Ground Screw to earth ground by connecting
to a ground rod (a metal rod pounded into the earth) or other proper
service entrance ground.
The inverter is now ready to deliver AC power to your loads. If several loads
are to be operated by the inverter, turn them On separately, after the inverter
has been turned On. This will ensure that the inverter does not have to deliver
the starting currents required for all the loads at once.
To Turn the Power Inverter Off:
1. On the left side panel, switch the On/Off Switch to Off.
On/Off Switch to Off
NOTE The On/Off Switch turns the control circuit in the inverter On and Off.
It does not disconnect power from the inverter.
When the switch is in the Off position, the inverter draws no current
from battery. When it’s in the On position, but no power is being supplied
to the load, the inverter draws less than 500 milliamperes from the battery.
This is low current draw. It would take more than a week to discharge a
100 ampere-hour battery at this rate depending on the age of the battery.

Operation
Operating Limits
Operating Limits
Power Output
The inverter can deliver 400 watts for about 60 minutes. The inverter must cool
for 15 minutes before it can resume operation at 400 watts. Note: The wattage
rating applies to resistive loads.
The inverter will operate most AC loads within its power rating. Some induction
motors used in freezers, pumps, and other motor-operated equipment require very
high surge currents to start. The inverter may not be able to start some of these
motors even though their rated current draw is within the inverter’s limits. The
inverter will normally start single phase induction motors rated at 1⁄ 2 HP or less.
Input Voltage
The inverter will operate from input voltage ranging from 10 volts to 15 volts.
Optimum performance will occur when the voltage is between 12 volts and
14 volts. If the voltage drops below 10.5V+/-0.3V, an audible low battery
warning will sound. The inverter will shut down if the input voltage drops
below 9.5V+/-0.3V. This protects the battery from being over-discharged.
The inverter must be turned Off then back On to reset.
The inverter will also shut down if the input voltage exceeds 15.75V+/-0.75V.
This protects the inverter against excessive input voltage. Although the inverter
has protection against over-voltage, it may still be damaged if the input voltage
was to exceed 16 volts.
