SECTION 1 | Introduction
DESCRIPTION
The SAM-RC is a wired Remote Control used with selected models of SAM Series of
Inverters to switch ON and switch OFF the Inverter from a remote location. It also
displays the operational status of the Inverter using colored LEDs.
APPLICABLE MODELS OF SAM INVERTERS
The SAM-RC Remote Control is designed to work with the following models of the
SAM Series:
— SAM-1000-12
— SAM-1500-12
— SAM-2000-12
— SAM-3000-12

SECTION 2 | General Information
1. ON / OFF Push Button. Used to switch ON and switch OFF the Inverter.
!
NOTE: For switching ON and switching OFF the Inverter using this
Remote Control, the Main ON / OFF Switch on the Inverter should be
in the OFF position.
If the ON / OFF Switch on the Inverter is left in ON position, the Inverter
cannot be switched OFF using this Remote Control. The Remote Control
will, however, continue to display the status of operation.
2. Annular ring with White LED backlighting around the ON / OFF Push Button for
assistance in identifying the location of the ON / OFF Push Button in dark conditions.
!
NOTE: The Annular Ring with white LED backlighting (2) will be ON
even when the Main ON / OFF Button on the Inverter is in the OFF
condition (Provided DC input voltage from the battery is available at
the DC input terminals of the Inverter).
3. Green LED shows ON / OFF status of the Remote Control. Remote is ON when
the LED is lighted. Note that this LED will take 30 to 45 sec to extinguish
completely when the inverter is switched OFF in no load condition. If the
inverter is switched OFF in loaded condition, this LED will extinguish faster
(almost right away).
4.1 - 4.4 Bar Graph consisting of 4 Green LEDs shows the battery voltage seen at the
DC input terminals of the Inverter as follows: (Voltages shown are for a 12 V
Nominal Battery input)
- LED 4.1 is lighted
Battery voltage is 11.1 to 11.6 VDC
- LED 4.1 and 4.2 are lighted:
Battery voltage is 11.6 to 12.8 VDC
- LED 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 are lighted:
Battery voltage is 12.8 to 13.2 VDC
- LED 4.1, 4.2, 4.3 and 4.4 are lighted: Battery voltage is 13.2 to 15.3 VDC
!
NOTE: The battery voltage seen at the DC input terminals of the
Inverter will be lower than the battery voltage at the battery terminal
posts by the amount of voltage drop along the length of the wires
connecting the battery and the Inverter. It is recommended that the
voltage drop may be limited to 2% of the battery voltage by ensuring
that the thickness of the connecting wires is selected appropriately
based on the maximum current drawn by the Inverter from the battery
and the distance between the battery and the Inverter.
5.1 - 5.2Green LED (5.1) shows operation of the load controlled cooling fan.
- L ighted LED (5.1) indicates that the power drawn by the load is less than
10% of the rated power output of the Inverter and that the load controlled
fan of the Inverter is switched OFF to save power (The crossed out fan symbol (5.2) indicates that the fan if OFF).

SECTION 2 | General Information
- E
xtinguished LED (5.1) indicates the load is more than 10% of the rated output power of the Inverter and that the cooling fan inside the Inverter is ON.
6.1 - 6.3 B
ar graph consisting of 3 Green LED shows percentage of the rated output
power of the inverter being delivered to the load as follows:
- L ED 6.1 is lighted: Power drawn by the load is 10% to 59% of
the rated output power of the Inverter.
- L ED 6.1 and 6.2 are lighted:Power drawn by the load is 60% to 79%
the rated output power of the Inverter
- LED 6.1, 6.2 and 6.3 are lighted: Power drawn by the load is 80% to 100%
of the rated output power of the Inverter
!
NOTE: When the Green LED 5.1 is lighted, it indicates that the power
drawn by the load is less than 10% of the rated output power of
the Inverter. As the load increases from 10% to 100% of the rated
capacity of the Inverter, LED 5.1 extinguishes and LEDs 6.1 to 6.3
light up in succession. In a normal Bar Graph, LED 5.1 would have
continued to be lighted for loads > 10%. However, as the lighted
condition of LED 5.1 is also used to display the OFF status of the load
controlled cooling fan inside the Inverter, it is extinguished when
the load exceeds 10% of the rated output power of the Inverter
indicating that the cooling fan is switched ON.
7.Red LED shows “Output Fault” due to one of the following reasons:
- Overload / short circuit on the output side
8.Red LED shows “Input Fault” due to one of the following reasons:
- S hut down due to input voltage from the battery seen at the DC input
terminals of the Inverter is 10.5 or below
- S hut down due to input voltage from the battery seen at the DC input
terminals of the Inverter is 15.2 V or higher
- Shut down due to over temperature
9.Amber LED marked “Low input Voltage Warning” indicates the following:
- W
arning that the input voltage from the battery seen at the DC input
terminals of the Inverter is getting low i.e. below 11.6 VDC. The Inverter will
shut down when the voltage drops down to 10.5 VDC
10.(Not shown. Located at the back of the Remote). 8P8C (8 Position, 8 Conductor)
Modular Connector Receptacle (also known as RJ-45 Receptacle) used for
connecting the Remote Control to the Inverter.
!
NOTE: 3 m / 10 ft length of Cat 5, Networking Cable with 8P8C
(8 Position, 8 Conductor) Modular Plugs (RJ-45) on the two ends is
provided for connecting the Remote Control to the Inverter. The 2
plugs are wired as straight-through connection.

SECTION 3 | Operation
The Remote Control is provided with 3 meter length of Cat 5 Networking Cable with
8P8C (8 Position, 8 Conductor) Modular Plugs (RJ-45) on either ends (NOTE: straightthrough wire connection of the 2 plugs). Plug one end of the cable to the receptacle on
the Remote Control.
Locate the 8P8C (8 Position, 8 Conductor) Modular Receptacle (RJ-45) on the inverter
and securely insert the other end of the plug on the Remote Control cable.
For switching on and switching off the Inverter using this Remote Control, the Main ON
/ OFF Switch on the Inverter should be in the Off condition.
!
CAUTION: If the ON / OFF Switch on the Inverter is left in ON position, the Inverter
cannot be switched OFF using this Remote Control. The Remote Control will,
however, continue to display the status of operation.
Please see under “Layout and Operation of Controls and LED Indications” for display
information.
