with auto-transfer switching
serves as an automotive inverter
Tripp Lite's APSX750 DC-to-AC inverter with automatic line-to-battery transfer and integrated charging system
serves as an extended run UPS, a standalone power source or an automotive inverter. Supplies up to 750 watts
of continuous 230V AC power to 2 AC outlets from any 12V battery or automotive DC source. OverPower
inverter output feature temporarily provides up to 150% of the continuous output for 1-60 minutes and
DoubleBoost inverter output feature delivers up to 200% of the continuous output for up to 10 seconds, providing
the extra power needed to cold start heavy-duty tools and motorized equipment. When AC cable is connected to
a live wall socket, commercial power passes through to connected equipment and the battery set is recharged
via 3-stage, selectable 5/20 amp charging system. In UPS mode, the APS system responds to blackouts and
voltage fluctuations with a near instantaneous automatic transfer to battery-derived AC output. Includes a set of
high current DC input terminals for simple installation (user supplies batteries and cabling - see owner's manual
for recommendations). Passes sine wave utility or generator power during battery charging and UPS line power
operation, plus efficient PWM sine wave AC output in inverter and UPS backup modes. Reliable large
transformer design, with frequency control powers resistive electronic loads or large inductive motors,
compressors and other items with high current needs on startup. Optional APSRM4 wired remote power switch
for RVs, over-the-road trucking,
conversion vans, high humidity
environments and fleet service
vehicles; a standalone alternative
power source for off-grid,
alternative energy or export
applications and as an
uninterruptible power supply
(UPS) for items compatible with a
10 millisecond transfer time.
NOTE: For sump pump
applications, Tripp Lite
recommends its "UT" Utility Truck
with full status LEDs provides remote power inverter on/off switching and continuous status information
(APSRM4 sold separate). Supports an unlimited amount of runtime with any number of user-supplied batteries
Package Includes
connected. Highly adaptable to a variety of applications and site conditions with adjustable charger settings for
APSX750 Inverter/Charger
wet/gel battery types and selectable line to battery power transfer voltages.
Instruction manual with warranty
Supports 230V AC output from a 230V AC line power source or 12V DC battery source
10 millisecond automatic transfer between line and battery power supports UPS protection during blackouts and voltage fluctuations for equipment
compatible with a 1/2 cycle transfer time
750W continuous AC output in inverter mode
Double Boost™ inverter output supports momentary startup loads up to 200% of the continuous rating for up to 10 seconds (see specification chart)
OverPower™ inverter output supports longer duration overloads to 150% for 1-60 minutes under ideal battery and temperature conditions
3 stage, selectable 5/20 amp battery charger with adjustable settings for wet/gel battery types
Dual C13 output receptacles pass 120V line power or inverter output through to connected equipment
3 position operating mode switch supports "AUTO" mode to enable automatic transfer between DC and AC modes, CHARGE-ONLY to maintain a full
battery charge when AC is present without auto transfer and SYSTEM OFF settings
Set of 6 front panel LEDs display continuous status
Set of 4 dip switches support wet/gel battery charging profiles, charger enable/inhibit, and selectable 144/163/182/201V AC low voltage auto transfer
during brownouts
Set of 4 additional dip switches support 4 levels of charger limiting relative to output load size, a battery equalization program and battery charger
low/high settings
Resettable 3A charger AC input breaker and resettable 4A AC output breaker and automatic 2 speed cooling fan protect the inverter from load and
temperature related failures
Automatic overload and thermal (overheating) shutoff
Front panel remote control connector enables remote off/on switching (requires APSRM4 switch accessory)

Recommended Electrical Service
DC INPUT: Requires 12VDC input source capable of delivering 72A for the required duration (when used at full
continuous capacity - DC requirements increase during OverPower and DoubleBoost operation). For automotive
applications, professional hardwire installation with 100A minimum battery system fusing is recommended. AC
Maximum Input Amps / Watts
DC INPUT: Full continuous load - 72A at 12VDC. AC INPUT: 6.2A at 230VAC with full inverter and charger load
(2.2A max charger-only / combined input load to support charger and AC output is automatically controllable to
66%-33%-0% based on AC output loading using the charger limiting set points - see manual for setting instructions)
Input Connection Type
DC INPUT: Set of 2 DC bolt-down terminals. AC INPUT: IEC-320 C14 inlet connection

Battery Charge
Selectable 5 / 20 amp with 1/2 cycle (10 ms) transfer time
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.
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.
