2000 watts continuous output
4000 watts peak output for an extended period
Advanced battery charger
Fast load switching with less transfer time
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.
Functions as an extended run UPS system, standalone power source and automotive inverter
Includes hardwire AC input and auto-transfer to enable battery charging and automatic UPS support for blackouts and brownouts
2000 watts continuous output power; provides up to twice this rating for momentary startup of inductive loads
Battery runtime is dependent upon the size and number of user-supplied batteries in 12Vconfiguration
Hardwire input and output connections supported, DC input terminals for 12V battery connection
Converts 12V DC to 120V AC
Frequency control for operating stability
Advanced 20/60 amp selectable, 3-stage battery charger and selector switch for gel or wet cell batteries
Resettable circuit breaker protects APS against system overload
Switch allows user to select between off, auto-invert and charge-only settings
6 diagnostic LEDs indicate AC present, on battery, overload, & battery voltage level (high, medium, & low)
Configuration switches to allow the user to select the high and low voltage for the unit to automatically transfer from AC power to
battery backup
Coated internal circuit boards offer continuous operation in humid environments (0-95%, non condensing)
RJ45 port allows connection of APS remote switch (part# APSRM4)
Allows unlimited runtime capability by allowing the use any number of user-supplied batteries
Extended Run UPS Configure as a UPS for long-term battery support of telecom systems, security alarms, computer systems and
various other motorized and electronic loads.
Standalone Power Alternative power source for use in off-grid, backwoods, alternative energy and export applications where
commercial power is not continuously available.
Automotive Connect to an automotive electrical system to run power tools, computers, electronic test equipment, home entertainment
and other AC appliances in fleet service vehicles, over-the-road trucks, campers, RVs, minivans and more.

Instruction manual with warranty information
System overview:
Reliable 12V DC to 120V AC power inverter system serves as an automotive inverter, a
battery charger and an uninterruptible power supply. Extended runtime capable with any
number of user supplied batteries. 2000 watts continuous / 4000 watts peak. Requires
hardwire input & output connection.
Voltage compatibility:
12V DC / 120V AC
Frequency compatibility:
60 Hz
Output watt capacity (watts):
Continuous - 2000 watts, Overpower (up to 1 hour) - 3000 watts, Double-Boost wattage (up
to 10 seconds) - 4000 watts
Output nominal voltage:
AC OUTPUT: 120V AC nominal, DC CHARGER OUTPUT (DC): 12V DC nominal
