Safety Instructions

Warning!

Please read the instruction manual carefully before attempting to carry out any installation and wiring. Contact Technical support for any questions concerning the installation.

This equipment should be installed, adjusted, and serviced by qualified electrical maintenance personnel familiar with the construction and operation of the equipment and the hazards involved. Failure to observe this precaution may result in bodily injury.

Do not connect the unit to the AC distribution wiring, such as main circuit breaker box.

Keep the unit away from water. Do not allow water to drip or splash onto the inverter. Do not insert or pull out any AC plug with wet hands.

Keep the unit in cool environments. Ambient air temperature should be between 14 °F and 122 °F (-10 °C and 50 °C). Keep from direct sunlight and away from heating vents.

6

Keep the unit way from flammable materials or in any location where may accumulate flammable fumes or gases, such as the battery compartment of a car, boat, RV or truck.

With the heavy use, the unit will become warm and possibly hot. Keep the unit away from any heat sensitive materials.

Make sure the opening to the fan and vent holes are not blocked.

Do not open the unit. High voltages are inside when the device is powered.

Use proper size wiring. High power inverters can draw many amps from the DC source and can melt wires if not fused and sized properly.

Make sure a proper connection is made between the inverter and the battery (ie s). Reverse polarity connection may melt or blow the inverter’s fuses. Turn off the unit when not in use.

Before cleaning the equipment, switch the power off, clean dry cloth. Do not use wet cloth or cleanser to clean it.

Wiring Instructions

Step 1: Select the right input voltage

Input voltage can be 12V/24V/48V subjecting to the products. It is recommended that the inverter be powered by a battery or battery bank, as the current draw from the inverter can get really high.

Step 2: Connecting inverter to battery

Set the switch to OFF position

(inverter and appliances). Connect the battery cables to their respective colors on the inverter i.e. black cable goes to the black terminal on the

7

inverter, and the red cable goes to the red terminal on the inverter.

Please refer to

Fig. 3

. Each end of the battery tray cables should have an

“Oring

” type of connector. These connectors make it easy to achieve a secure and strong connection. Once the cables are connected and bolted down to the inverter, connect the black cable to the negative post of the battery (-). Then connect the red cable to the positive post of the battery (+). If connecting to a battery bank, make sure that the black cable connects to the negative

Fig. 3 wiring diagram battery post (-) at the end of the bank (opposite to the positive battery post as shown on

Fig. 3

). It is recommended that a fuse be placed on the hot line

(positive) between the battery and inverter. Please refer to Section 5 for the proper wire gauge size and the fuse ratings for each inverter.

The battery negative terminal and the chassis ground of the

Ground! inverter should be connected to a system ground. This a safety measurement to prevent electric shock!

Step 3: Connecting electrical appliances to inverter

Make sure the power load is within the rated power of the inverter.

Caution!

The start power of the appliances should not exceed the peak power of the inverter.

Once the devices are connected to the AC outlet, they are ready to be powered.

When the inverter is not being use, it is recommended to turn off the inverter

(switch in OFF position).

Step 4 (optional): Connecting remote ON/OFF switch to inverter

The 1000-2000W inverters have a built-in RJ11 connector for remote ON/OFF switch. This allows to easily shut-off the inverter from a remote location.

Fig. 4 remote switch in OFF position

Make sure that, both, main inverter and remote switch are in the OFF position

(

Fig.4

). Then connect, the remote into the RJ11 port on the inverter.

8

Flip the switch, and the inverter should power up, and the remote LED with lit solid green (

Fig.5

).

Fig. 5 remote switch in ON position

Wire and In-Line Fuse Size

Warning!

Make sure the correct wire gauge size is used. Inverters draw a large amounts of amps, and if the wire is not sized properly, the wires can melt and catch on fire. Please refer to Table 1 for the recommended wire sizing.

12V Power inverters tend to draw large amount of current based on the appliance load. The reason behind this, is because the voltage ratio (AC/DC) is as follows:

120Vac / 10Vdc = 10

This means that a 500W load on the AC side (connected on the AC power outlet of the inverter) is going to draw from the battery

500 / 10 = 50 Amps

This current draw can be achieved with multiple devices connected to the inverter or running single appliances such as microwaves, toasters, blenders, etc. For this reason, it is required that the inverter is properly fused, and that the correct wire gauge size is used.

Protection Function

Low voltage input protection

A buzzer will alarm when the battery voltage is low. This indicates that your battery (ies) need to be recharged. When the input voltage is below 10V +/- 0.5V

(for 12V input inverter) or 20V +/-1.0V (for 24V input inverter), the AC output will be automatically shut off. At this point, the buzzer alarm will turn on, and the

“Fault/char” LED will turn red at the same time.

Over voltage input protection

When the input voltage reaches 15V +/- 0.5V (for 12V input inverter) or 30V+/-

1.0V (for 24V input inverter), the AC output will automatically shut off. At this point, the buzzer alarm will turn on, and the “Fault/char” LED will turn red at the same time.

Short circuit protection

In case of a short circuit, the AC output will shut off automatically, and the

“Fault/char” LED will turn red.

Overload protection

When overload happens, the AC output will shut off automatically, and the

“Fault/char” LED will turn red.

Reverse polarity input protection

If the battery terminals are reversed by accident, the inverter is equipped with fuses to prevent internal damage to the inverter and to protect any electronic device connected to the unit. The fuses are located externally for inverters sizes

1000W and up.

Inverter thermal protection

When the inner temperature exceeds 167 °F (75 °C), the AC output will shut off automatically, and the “Fault/char” LED will turn red. At this point the inverter needs to cool down for at least 15 minutes until it can be used again.

Load thermal protection

As the load increases the chassis will start to get warm, if the temperature of the chassis exceeds 122 °F (50 °C), the inner fan will automatically turn on to cool down the inverter.

Troubleshooting

TV Interference

The inverter may cause minimal interference with a television. It is recommended that the inverter is place far away from the television and/or the antenna.

Inverter has no response

(a) Poor connection between batteries and inverter, reconnect them.

(b) If polarities where reversed by accident, probably a fuse or multiple fuses are blown. Disconnect the inverter from the battery and replace the blown fuse(s) with a new one of the same size, when done, reconnect the battery and power the inverter.

11

Output voltage very low

(a) Power overload. Load power exceeds rated power, shut off some of the devices connected to the inverter and restart the inverter by turning it off and back on.

(b) Input voltage too low. Make sure input voltage is within the rated range.

Low voltage alarm

(a) Battery has insufficient power (low voltage). The battery might be overdischarged, and is necessary to recharge the battery for the inverter to continue to work properly.

(b) Poor connection. Check terminals on the inverter and battery post for loose connections. If the terminals are dirty, clean them with a dry cloth.

Inverter has no output

(a) Battery voltage might be too low, recharge the battery (s) or replace them.

(b) Load power too high. If the load exceeds the rated power of the inverter, the output will be automatically shut off. In this case, please turn off some of the devices connected to the inverter. This will reduce the load drawn from the inverter. Restart the inverter.

(c) Inverter thermal protection. The inverter might be too hot to operate, if the inverter exceeds 167 °F (75 °C) the output power will automatically shut off. Cool the inverter and place it in a place with good ventilation. Wait at least 15 minutes before resuming its use.

(c) Reverse polarity. If accidentally the polarity for the input voltage is reversed, a fuse or multiple fuses might blow up. This prevents from damaging the internals of the inverter or any device connected to the unit.

Disconnect the inverter from the battery and replace the blown fuse(s) with a new one of the same size, when done, reconnect the battery and power the inverter.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What type of batteries can be used with this kit?

A. Any sealed lead acid, gel, or flooded 12V battery (typically used in caravans, motorhomes, boats etc.) is appropriate for use with this kit.

Q. Can this kit charge a 24V battery?

20

A. No, because this kit is designed to charge a 12V battery. Technically, it’s possible to change solar panel connections to enable the kit to work in 24V mode; however, a qualified, knowledgeable individual should only do this.

Note: unauthorized modification to 24V will void the warranty.

Q. Can the kit charge two or more 12V batteries connected in parallel?

A. Yes, it’s possible if the batteries have the same type and capacity and are wired in parallel as a single 12V battery bank.

Q. Is there any risk that the solar kit will over charge my battery?

A. One of the functions of the solar charge controller is to ensure that your battery is not over charged; therefore there is no risk of overcharge.

Q. Can I extend the battery leads?

A. Yes, it’s possible – please choose the same size of cable for extension. However, there longer the extension, the greater the line loss. Bigger gauge will be required for longer runs.

Q. Do I need to clean the solar panels?

A. Yes, it is recommended for better performance. Dust and dirt should first be swept off the panel surface using a soft brush. When the sweeping is complete, use a wet cloth to wipe the panel surface to remove remaining dirt and grime.

Q. Can rain damage the solar kit?

A. The solar panels are fully waterproof (IP66 class), the controller is not. We recommend protecting the kit from rain, since water into controller may damage the internal circuitry.

Warranty

By acquiring the products of RNG Group Inc. ("Renogy"), you have purchased quality. As a sign of confidence in this quality, we are pleased to grant you the following warranties and guarantees for our photovoltaic products.

LIMITED WARRATNY:

Renogy warrants this product will be free from defects in material and manufacturer for the following periods from the date of purchase:

Five (5) years on the solar panel

Two (2) years on charge controller

One (1) year on the rest of the kit components

This warranty extends only to the original purchaser. The Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy and the entire liability of Renogy, its suppliers and affiliates for breach of the warranty is, either to replace the Product or component parts or to refund the purchase price of the Product. This warranty does not cover labor. Repaired or replaced products are warranted for the remainder of the original warranty period only. No employee, agent, dealer or other person is authorized to give any warranties on behalf of Renogy not expressly set forth in this limited warranty.

The warranty does not cover failures result from incorrect handling, product modifications, installation, conversion or additions, supplements, operation, natural elements, excessive or deficient energy supply, chemicals, the effect of solid bodies or deliberate damage. If Renogy determines that the problem with the Product is not due to a manufacturing defect in Renogy’s workmanship or materials, or otherwise does not qualify for warranty repair, then the Customer will be responsible for the costs of all necessary repairs and expenses incurred by Renogy.

The warranty shall be asserted with Renogy in writing enclosing a copy of the invoice and a description of the defect/loss of performance within the warranty period. Renogy shall accept no returns of modules without the previous written request for this. Within five (5) business days of the date of notification, Renogy will provide the Customer with an RMA number and the location to which the Customer must return the defective

Product. Any Product returned for warranty service shall be shipped at the expense and risk of the Customer. The Customer must return the entire Product (or, if authorized by

Renogy, the defective component parts), within fifteen (15) days after issuance of the

25

RMA number. Renogy will be under no obligation to accept any returned Product that does not have a valid RMA number. All parts that Renogy replaces shall become

Renogy’s property on the date Renogy ships the repaired Product or part back to the

Customer. Renogy will use all reasonable efforts within thirty (30) days of receipt of the defective Product to repair or replace such Product. If a warranty claim is invalid for any reason, the Customer will be charged at Renogy’s then-current rates for services performed and will be charged for all necessary repairs and expense incurred by

Renogy. If Renogy determines that a warranty claim is valid, it will ship the repaired or replaced Product to Customer at Renogy’s cost.

RENOGY MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,

INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF

MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR ANY IMPLIED

WARRANTY OR CONDITION ARISING OUT OF A COURSE OF DEALING, CUSTOMER OR

USAGE OF TRADE.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL RENOGY OR ITS AFFILIATES OR SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE

OR RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSS OF USE, INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS, LOST PROFITS,

LOST DATA, OR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF

ANY KIND REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT

(INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF RENOGY OR ITS

AFFILIATE OR SUPPLIER HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE.

Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so these limitations may not apply to you. Neither Renogy nor its affiliates or suppliers will be held liable or responsible for any damage or loss to any items or products connected to, powered by or otherwise attached to the Product. The total cumulative liability to Customer, from all causes of action and all theories of liability, will be limited to and will not exceed the purchase price of the Product paid by Customer.

This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other legal rights that vary from state to state.
