Applications
Description
Versatile inverter/charger system
Tripp Lite's APSINT3636VR DC-to-AC inverter with automatic line-to-battery transfer and integrated charging
system serves as an extended run UPS, a standalone power source or an automotive inverter. Supplies up to
3600 watts of continuous 230V AC power from any 36V battery or automotive DC source. When hardwire AC
input is energized, commercial power passes through to connected equipment and the battery set is recharged
via 3-stage, selectable wet/dry cell battery charger (30-amp high/7.5-amp low). In UPS mode, the APS system
responds to blackouts and severe voltage fluctuations with a near instantaneous automatic transfer to
battery-derived AC output. Includes a set of high current DC input terminals for simple installation (user supplies
batteries and cabling - see owner's manual for recommendations). Passes sine wave utility or generator power
during battery charging and UPS line power operation, plus efficient PWM sine wave AC output in inverter and
UPS backup modes. Built-in Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) corrects line power AC brownouts and
overvoltages without using battery power during battery charging and UPS standby modes. Reliable large
transformer design, with frequency control powers resistive electronic loads or large inductive motors,
compressors and other items with high current needs on startup. Included APSRM4 wired remote power switch
with full status LEDs provides remote power inverter on/off switching and continuous status information
(APSRM4 included). Supports an unlimited amount of runtime with any number of user-supplied batteries
with auto-transfer switching
serves as an automotive inverter
for RVs, over-the-road trucking,
conversion vans and fleet service
vehicles; a standalone alternative
power source for off-grid,
alternative energy or export
applications and as an
uninterruptible power supply
(UPS) for items compatible with a
20 millisecond transfer time.
NOTE: For sump pump
applications, Tripp Lite
recommends its "UT" Utility Truck
Inverter/Chargers.
connected. Highly adaptable to a variety of applications and site conditions with adjustable charger settings for
wet/gel battery types and selectable line to battery power transfer voltages.

OverPower inverter output supports longer duration overloads to 150% for 1-60 minutes under ideal battery and temperature conditions.
3-stage, selectable wet/dry cell battery charger (30-amp high/7.5-amp low)
3-position operating mode switch supports "AUTO" mode to enable automatic transfer between DC and AC modes, CHARGE-ONLY to maintain a full
battery charge when AC is present without auto transfer and SYSTEM OFF settings
Set of six front panel LEDs display AC/DC operational modes, overload status, DC voltage level, shutdown status and system fault status
Set of 4 configuration dipswitches support wet/gel battery charging profiles, adjustable 259/264V high voltage auto transfer during overvoltages and
selectable 144/163/182/201V AC low voltage auto transfer during brownouts
Set of 4 additional configuration dip switches support 4 levels of charger limiting relative to output load size
Resettable 10A charger AC input breaker and resettable 15A AC output breaker and automatic 2 speed cooling fan protect the inverter from load and
temperature related failures
Automatic overload and thermal shutoff safely turns off inverter as excessive loads or overheating conditions develop
Front panel remote control connector enables remote off/on switching (requires APSRM4 switch accessory)

Recommended Electrical Service
DC INPUT: Requires 36VDC input source capable of delivering 114A for the required duration (when used at full
continuous capacity - DC requirements increase during OverPower and DoubleBoost operation). For automotive
applications, professional hardwire installation with 300A minimum battery system fusing is recommended.
