Description
Tripp Lite’s APSX3024SW 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 3000 watts of continuous 230V sine wave AC power from any 24V battery or
automotive DC source. When hardwire AC input is energized, commercial power passes through to connected equipment and the battery set is
recharged via 3 stage, 23/90 amp charging system. In UPS mode, the APS system responds to blackouts and severe 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, and sine wave AC output in inverter and UPS backup modes. Built-in Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) corrects line
power AC brownouts and overvoltages without using battery power during battery charging and UPS standby 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 with full status LEDs provides remote power inverter on/off switching and continuous status
information (part# APSRM4 sold separately). 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.
Applications
Versatile inverter/charger system with auto-transfer switching serves as an automotive inverter 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 selectabe half-cycle (10ms) or full-cycle (20ms) transfer times. NOTE: For
sump pump applications, Tripp Lite recommends its "UT" Utility Truck Inverter/Chargers.

Features
Supports 230V AC output from a 230V AC line power source or 24V DC battery source
3000W continuous sinewave AC output in inverter mode
Double Boost output supports momentary start-up loads up to 200% of the continuous rating for up to 10 seconds (see specification chart) -
OverPower output supports longer duration overloads to 150% for up to 60 seconds
3-stage, selectable 23/90 amp battery charger with adjustable settings for wet/gel battery types
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 information
Set of 4 dip switches support AC input selection of 230V, selectable 50 /60Hz frequency, and selectable full or half cycle transfer times
Set of 4 dip switches support wet/gel battery charging profiles, adjustable 260/270V (230V) high voltage auto transfer during overvoltages
and selectable 150/60V / 170/180V (230V) AC low voltage auto transfer during brownouts
Set of 4 additional dip switches support battery equalization program and battery charger low / high settings
Automatic overload and thermal (overheating) shutoff
Front panel remote control connector enables remote off/on switching (APSRM4 sold separately)
Load sensing control dial enables adjustable load threshold required to automatically turn the inverter on and off in DC mode as load
conditions change
Automatic Generator Starter jack enables user configuration of automatic generator start-up as inverter batteries drop to 23.0 VDC and
generator shutoff as inverter batteries are recharged to 28.2 VDC.
Remote battery temperature sensing connection function prolongs battery life by adjusting the charge float voltage level based on battery
temperature

to 180V).
High voltage transfer
to battery power
In 230V AC "auto" mode, inverter/charger switches to battery mode as line voltage increases to 260V (user
adjustable to 270 - see manual).
