Tripp Lite 1111 West 35th Street Chicago, IL 60609 USA Telephone: +(773) 869 1234 E-mail: email@example.com Model #: APSX1250F PowerVerter APS X Series Inverter/Charger - with Faster Auto-Transfer Switching Highlights 12V DC or 230V AC input; 230V, 50 Hz output; 2 AC outlets 1250W continuous, 1875W OverPower and 2500W DoubleBoost inverter output (see specifications) 3-stage selectable 7.5 / 30 amp wet/dry cell battery charger Faster Auto Transfer Switching option for battery backup/UPS operation Reliability-enhanced large-transformer design with protected DC terminals Description Tripp Lite's APSX1250F DC-to-AC inverter with faster automatic line-to-battery transfer and integrated charging system serves as an extended-run UPS, a stand-alone power source or an automotive inverter. Supplies up to 1250W of continuous 230V AC power to 2 AC outlets from any 12V battery or automotive DC source. OverPower™ inverter output feature temporarily provides up to 150% of the continuous output for up to 1-60 minutes and DoubleBoost™ inverter output feature delivers up to 200% of the continuous output for up to 10 seconds, providing the extra power needed to cold start heavy-duty tools and motorized equipment. When AC cable is connected to a live wall socket, commercial power passes through to connected equipment and the battery set is recharged via a 3-stage selectable 7.5/30A charging system. In UPS mode, the APS system responds to blackouts and voltage fluctuations with 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, and efficient PWM sine wave AC output in inverter and UPS backup 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. Optional APSRM4 wired remote power switch with full status LEDs provides remote power inverter on/off switching and continuous status information (APSRM4 sold separately). Provides unlimited runtime with connection of any number of user-supplied batteries. 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. Applications Versatile inverter/charger system 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 10-millisecond transfer time. Package Includes APSX1250F Inverter/Charger Instruction manual with warranty information (1) Universal Receptacle Adapter compatible with multiple international plugsets Features APSX1250F serves as an automotive or stationary DC-to-AC inverter with a faster automatic line-to-battery transfer and integrated battery charger Supports 230V AC output from a 230V AC line power source or 12V DC battery source 10 millisecond automatic transfer between line and battery power supports UPS protection during blackouts and voltage fluctuations for equipment compatible with a half cycle transfer time 1250W continuous AC output in inverter mode Double Boost inverter output supports momentary startup loads up to 200% of the continuous rating for up to 10 seconds (see specification chart) OverPower inverter output supports longer-duration overloads to 150% for 1-60 minutes under ideal battery and temperature conditions. (For best results, utilize OverPower usage for as short a time as possible, ensure that battery bank and cabling are able to provide full nominal DC voltage under load, and allow inverter/charger to fully cool before and after OverPower usage.) 3-stage selectable 7.5/30A battery charger with adjustable settings for wet/gel battery types offers rapid, reliable battery recharging Protected hardwire bolt-down input lugs safely accept heavy gauge input wiring from attached battery bank Dual C13 output receptacles pass 120V line power or inverter output through to connected equipment Reliability-enhanced large-transformer design with secure mounting flanges and protected DC wiring terminals Moisture-resistant construction enables vehicular or marine operation in high-humidity environments 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 dip switches support wet/gel battery charging profiles, charger enable/inhibit, and selectable 144/163/182/201V AC low voltage auto transfer during brownouts Set of 4 additional configuration dip-switches supports 4 levels of charger limiting relative to output load size, a battery equalization program and battery charger low/high settings Resettable 5A charger AC input breaker, resettable 6A AC output breaker and automatic 2-speed cooling fan protect the inverter from loadand temperature-related failures Grounding lug properly connects the inverter/charger system to earth ground or vehicle grounding system Automatic overload and thermal shutoff safely turns off inverter if excessive load or overheating conditions develop Front panel remote control connector enables remote off/on switching (requires APSRM4 switch accessory). Optional APSRM4 accessory also includes user configurable jacks to support inverter shutoff or startup when a vehicle ignition is engaged Specifications OVERVIEW Intended Application Emergency Home Power SYSTEM OVERVIEW Voltage compatibility 12VDC/230VAC Frequency compatibility 50 Hz OUTPUT Output watts INVERTER MODE1250 watts continuous, Double Boost rated to 2500 watts peak (up to 10 seconds).
