SECTION 1: SAFETY
1.1 Before using this Remote Control, please follow the Safety Instructions
given in the Owner’s Manual for the inverter PST-3000-12 / PST-3000-24.
SECTION 2 | DESCRIPTION
2.1 RC-300 is a wired Remote Control that is compatible with inverter model
numbers PST-3000-12 and PST-3000-24.
2.3 It is used to switch ON and switch OFF the inverter from a remote location.
It also displays the operational status using LCD display and colored LEDs.
It is provided with 25 ft / 7.62 meters of connecting cable set with RJ-50
Modular Plugs (10P10C). The conductors of the cable set have crossed-over
(rolled-over) connections on the two RJ-50 plugs.
SECTION 3 | LAYOUT OF CONTROLS, INDICATIONS
& DIMENSIONAL DRAWING
3.1 F ig. 1 (page 4) shows the layout of controls and indications and dimensional drawing.
3.2 ON/OFF Control
ON/OFF Push Button (1) is used to switch ON and switch OFF the inverter. Every
time the ON/OFF Push Button is pressed, a beep will be heard.
This Remote Control will operate only after the inverter PST-3000 has been first
turned ON using the local ON/OFF Switch on the inverter or using external
ON/OFF control provided in the inverter. Read under heading "Optional Wired
Remote Control - Model RC 300" in Section 8 of Owner's Manual for PST-3000.
3.3 LCD Display
LCD screen (3) is used to display the following 6 output parameters in a sequential
loop as given below.
The screen changes to show the successive parameter in a sequential
manner every time the “Display Push Button” (2) is pressed (Sequence is:

Green LED (6) marked POWER. This LED will be lighted when the inverter is in ON
condition. When the inverter is in OFF condition, this LED will not be lighted. This
LED shows that DC input is available to the inverter and that the input section of the
inverter is operating normally
Red LED (4) marked OVER LOAD. When lighted, it indicates that the AC output of the
inverter has been shut down due to over load
Red LED (5) marked OVER TEMP. When lighted, it indicates that the AC output of the
inverter has been shut down due to over temperature

SECTION 4 | INSTALLATION
4.1 Please refer to Fig. 1. The Remote Control can be flush mounted on a wall
or a panel by making a suitable cut-out to accommodate the projection in
the back.
4.2 Please ensure that the inverter PST-3000-12 / PST-3000-24 is switched OFF
before connecting RC-300 to the inverter.
4.3 Connect one end of the cable set to the RJ-50 Modular Jack (7) at the
back and the Remote and the other end to the RJ-50 Modular Jack on the
inverter. Ensure that the connection is firm and the tab on the plug securely
locks in the jack.
SECTION 5 | OPERATION
NOTE:
This Remote Control will operate only after the inverter PST-3000-12 / PST-3000-24
has been first switched ON using the local ON/OFF Switch on the inverter or
using the external ON/OFF control provided on the inverter (for details, please
refer to Section 8 of Owner's Manual for PST-3000-12 / PST-3000-24 under heading "Optional Wired Remote Control - Model RC-300).
5.1 Switch ON PST-3000-12 / PST-3000-24 using the local ON/OFF Switch on the
inverter or using external ON/OFF control provided on the inverter (for details, please refer to Section 8 of Owner's Manual for PST-3000-12 / PST-300024 under heading "Optional Wired Remote Control - Model RC-300). Once
the inverter turns ON, the operational status of the inverter will be displayed
through the LCD screen (3, Fig 1) and LEDs (4, 5, 6; Fig 1).
5.2 See under headings “LCD Display” (Section 3.3 and 3.4) and “LED Display”
(Section 3.5) for information on the operating conditions. Please read Section 11 - "Troubleshooting Guide" of the Owner's Manual for PST-3000-12 /
PST-3000-24 for identifying abnormal conditions indicated by the LEDs.
5.3 The output of the inverter can be switched ON/OFF using the ON/OFF Push
Button (1, Fig 1).
5.4 No Load Current Draw
As stated above, the ON/OFF Switch on the inverter is required to be in ON
condition for the Remote to operate. When the ON/OFF switch on the Remote
Control is turned ON, all the circuitry inside the inverter becomes fully alive and
the AC output is made available. In this condition, even when no load is being
supplied (or, if a load is connected but has been switched OFF), the inverter
draws a small amount of current from the batteries to keep the circuitry alive
and is ready to deliver the required power on demand. This is called the “idle
6 | SAMLEX AMERICA INC.
current” or the “no load current draw”. When the inverter is turned OFF using
this Remote Control, some control circuitry is still alive in the inverter and will
require very small current draw. Hence, when the load is not required to be
operated, turn OFF the ON/OFF Switch on the inverter to prevent unnecessary
current drain from the battery.
