automotive inverter for RVs,
over-the-road trucking, conversion
vans, high humidity environments and
Tripp Lite’s APSX3024SW 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
3000 watts of continuous 230V sine wave AC power from any 24V 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, 23/90 amp charging system. 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, and 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
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 selectabe half-cycle
(10ms) or full-cycle (20ms) transfer
times. NOTE: For sump pump
applications, Tripp Lite recommends
its "UT" Utility Truck
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
Package Includes
switching and continuous status information (part# APSRM4 sold separately). Supports an unlimited amount of

runtime with any number of user-supplied batteries connected. Highly adaptable to a variety of applications and
Instruction manual with warranty
site conditions with adjustable charger settings for wet/gel battery types and selectable line to battery power
transfer voltages.
NOTE: To protect against high current draw that may occur during inverter failure, a fuse link rated at 250a should be positioned no more than 18" from the
APSX3024SW's battery in the positive line.
Supports 230V AC output from a 230V AC line power source or 24V DC battery source
3000W continuous sinewave AC output in inverter mode
Double Boost output supports momentary start-up loads up to 200% of the continuous rating for up to 10 seconds (see specification chart) - OverPower
output supports longer duration overloads to 150% for up to 60 seconds
3-stage, selectable 23/90 amp battery charger with adjustable settings for wet/gel battery types
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 6 front panel LEDs display continuous status information
Set of 4 dip switches support AC input selection of 230V, selectable 50 /60Hz frequency, and selectable full or half cycle transfer times
Set of 4 dip switches support wet/gel battery charging profiles, adjustable 260/270V (230V) high voltage auto transfer during overvoltages and selectable
150/60V / 170/180V (230V) AC low voltage auto transfer during brownouts
Set of 4 additional dip switches support battery equalization program and battery charger low / high settings
Automatic overload and thermal (overheating) shutoff
Front panel remote control connector enables remote off/on switching (APSRM4 sold separately)
Load sensing control dial enables adjustable load threshold required to automatically turn the inverter on and off in DC mode as load conditions change
Automatic Generator Starter jack enables user configuration of automatic generator start-up as inverter batteries drop to 23.0 VDC and generator shutoff
as inverter batteries are recharged to 28.2 VDC.
Remote battery temperature sensing connection function prolongs battery life by adjusting the charge float voltage level based on battery temperature
