PowerVerter APS Inverter/Charger Reliable Power Source for Uninterruptible Emergency Backup Applications Model #: APS2012 12V DC input; 120V AC output; hardwired 2000 watts continuous output 4000 watts peak output for an extended period Advanced battery charger Fast load switching with less transfer time DESCRIPTION Tripp Lite's APS2012 3-function DC-to-AC inverter with auto line-to-battery transfer and integrated charging system serves as an extended run UPS, a standalone power source or an automotive inverter. PowerVerter APS Inverter chargers accommodate "peak surge" demands by delivering more output power than their continuous rating. PowerVerter APS Inverters supply up to double their output to easily handle equipment start up and motor cycling requirements. A DoubleBoost™ feature provides up to 200% of the continuous output for up to 10 seconds, providing the extra power needed to cold start heavy-duty tools and equipment. An OverPower™ feature delivers up to 150% of the continuous output for up to 1 hour. When hardwire input AC cable is energized, commercial power passes through to connected equipment and the battery set is recharged via 3 stage, 20/60 amp selectable charging system. In UPS mode, the APS system responds to blackouts and brownouts with an uninterrupted transfer to batteryderived AC output. Includes a set of high current DC input terminals for simple installation (user supplies batteries and cabling). Reliable large transformer design with efficient PWM sine wave output and frequency control powers resistive electronic loads or large inductive motors, compressors and other items with high current needs on startup. Supports an unlimited amount of runtime with any number of user-supplied batteries 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.
