Tripp Lite's APSINT2012 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
2000 watts of continuous 230V AC power from any 12V 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 15/60 amp charging system. In UPS mode, the APS system responds to blackouts and
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. 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 separate). Supports an unlimited amount of runtime with any number of user-supplied batteries
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. Moisture-resistant
construction enables vehicular or
marine operation in high humidity
environments. NOTE: For sump
pump applications, Tripp Lite
recommends its "UT" Utility Truck
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.
Package Includes
APSINT2012 Inverter/Charger
Instruction manual with warranty
Supports 230V AC output from a 230V AC line power source or 12V DC battery source
20 millisecond automatic transfer between line and battery power supports UPS protection during blackouts
and voltage fluctuations for equipment compatible with a one cycle transfer time
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.
3 stage, 15/60 amp battery charger with adjustable settings for wet/gel battery types offers fast, reliable battery recharging
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 12VDC input source capable of delivering 192A 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 400A minimum battery system fusing is recommended.
Maximum Input Amps / Watts
DC INPUT: Full continuous load - 192A at 12VDC. AC INPUT: 17 amps at 230VAC with full inverter and charger
load (8.7A max charger-only / combined input load to support charger and AC output is automatically controllable to
66%-33%-0% based on AC output loading using the charger limiting set points - see manual for setting instructions)
Input Connection Type
DC INPUT: Set of 2 DC bolt-down terminals. AC INPUT: Hardwire via built in junction box with cover plate

3 position on/off/remote switch enables simple on/off power control plus "auto/remote" setting that enables distant
on/off control of the inverter system when used in conjunction with optional APSRM4 accessory when used in
inverter mode. In AC uninterruptible power mode, "auto/remote" setting enables automatic transfer from line power
to battery power - to maintain continuous AC power to connected loads.
Front Panel LEDs
Set of 6 LEDs offer continuous status information on load percentage (6 levels reported) and battery charge level (7
levels reported). See manual for sequences.
