Tripp Lite 1111 West 35th Street Chicago, IL 60609 USA Telephone: +(773) 869 1234 E-mail: [email protected] Model #: APSINT2424 PowerVerter® APS INT Series 2400W Inverter/Charger with Auto-Transfer Switching and Hardwire Input/Output Highlights 24V DC or 230V AC input; 230V, 50 Hz output (hardwired) 2400 watts continuous, 3600 watts OverPower™ and 4800 watts DoubleBoost™ inverter output (see specifications) 3 stage, 30 amp selectable wet/dry cell battery charger Auto Transfer Switching option for battery backup / UPS operation Reliability enhanced large-transformer design with protected DC and AC wiring terminals Description Tripp Lite's APSINT2434 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 2400 watts of continuous 230V 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, 30 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 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 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, marine 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 20 millisecond transfer time. NOTE: For sump pump applications, Tripp Lite recommends its "UT" Utility Truck Inverter/Chargers. Package Includes APSINT2424 Inverter/Charger Instruction manual with warranty information Features Supports 230V AC output from a 230V AC line power source or 12V DC battery source 20 millisecond automatic transfer between line and battery power supports UPS protection during blackouts and voltage fluctuations for equipment compatible with a one cycle transfer time 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. OverPower inverter output supports longer duration overloads to 150% for 1-60 minutes under ideal battery and temperature conditions. 3 stage, 30 amp battery charger with adjustable settings for wet/gel battery types offers fast, reliable battery recharging 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 six front panel LEDs display AC/DC operational modes, overload status, DC voltage level, shutdown status and system fault status Set of 4 configuration dipswitches support wet/gel battery charging profiles, adjustable 259/264V high voltage auto transfer during overvoltages and selectable 144/163/182/201V AC low voltage auto transfer during brownouts Set of 4 additional configuration dip switches support 4 levels of charger limiting relative to output load size Resettable 10A charger AC input breaker and resettable 15A AC output breaker and automatic 2 speed cooling fan protect the inverter from load and temperature related failures Automatic overload and thermal shutoff safely turns off inverter as excessive loads or overheating conditions develop Front panel remote control connector enables remote off/on switching (requires APSRM4 switch accessory) Specifications OVERVIEW Intended Application Emergency Home Power OUTPUT Frequency compatibility 50 Hz Output watts 2400 Continuous output capacity (watts) 2400 Peak output capacity (watts) 4800 Output nominal voltage 230V Output voltage regulation LINE POWER (AC): Maintains 230V nominal sine wave output from line power source. INVERTER POWER (AC): Maintains PWM sine wave output voltage of 230 VAC (+/-5%). Output frequency regulation 50 Hz (+/- 0.3 Hz) Overload protection Includes 10A input breaker dedicated to the charging system and 15A output breaker for AC output loads. Outlet quantity / type Hardwire INPUT Nominal Input Voltage(s) Supported 230V AC Recommended Electrical Service DC INPUT: Requires 24VDC input source capable of delivering 112A 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 300A minimum battery system fusing is recommended. Maximum input amps / watts DC INPUT: Full continuous load - 112A at 24VDC. AC INPUT: 17 amps at 230VAC with full inverter and charger load (7A 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: Hardwire via built in junction box with cover plate Voltage compatibility (VAC) 230 Voltage compatibility (VDC) 24 BATTERY Expandable battery runtime Runtime is expandable with any number of user supplied wet or gel type batteries DC system voltage (VDC) 24 Battery Pack Accessory (optional) 98-121 sealed lead acid battery (optional) Battery charge 30 amp LEDS ALARMS & SWITCHES 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. 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.
