Owner’s manual
Description
The APS2012 2000W PowerVerter APS 12V DC 120V AC Inverter/Charger is a reliable power source for a wide variety of equipment ranging from power
tools and pumps to portable lighting and computer equipment in heavy-load conditions. With no fumes, fuel or excess noise, it’s an excellent alternative to
generator power.
The DC-to-AC inverter features an automatic line-to-battery transfer switch and integrated charging system that allow it to work as a vehicle inverter,
standalone AC power source or extended-run UPS. It delivers 2000W of continuous power, 3000W up to one hour, or 4000W of peak power up to 10 seconds
during equipment startup or cycling. An automatic overload detector, cooling fan and resettable AC circuit breakers protect the unit from damage.
Designed for easy installation in RVs, commercial and fleet vehicles, emergency vehicles and construction equipment, the APS2012 converts stored power
from any 12V battery or automotive DC source to safe, stable, computer-grade AC power for unlimited runtime. When hardwired to an external 120V AC
source, the unit keeps the user-supplied battery charged via a three-stage 25/100A selectable charging system while simultaneously delivering AC power to
connected equipment.
When used as a UPS, the APS2012 responds to blackouts and brownouts with an automatic, instantaneous transfer to battery-derived AC output. LEDs on the
unit indicate load level, battery charge level, shutdown status and system fault status.

Recommended Electrical Service
DC INPUT: Requires 12V DC input source capable of delivering 192A for the required duration (when used at full
continuous capacity - DC requirements increase during Over-Power and Double-Boost operation).
Maximum Input Amps / Watts
DC INPUT: Full continuous load - 192A at 12V DC. AC INPUT: 38 amps at 120V AC with full inverter and charger
load (21A max charger-only / combined input load to support charger and AC output is automatically controllable to
66%-33%-0% based on AC output l
Input Connection Type
DC INPUT: Set of 2 DC bolt-down terminals. AC INPUT: Hardwire via built in junction box with cover plate. User
supplies cabling. 4 gauge or larger (see manual). AC INPUT: user supplies hardwire input cabling.

USER INTERFACE, ALERTS & CONTROLS
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.
Switches
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.
