Inverters
The inverter is the heart of all but the smallest power systems.
It is an electronic device that converts direct current DC power
from batteries or solar modules into alternating current AC
power to operate lights, appliances or anything that normally
Off-Grid Inverters
System Design
Off-grid, or standalone, inverters convert DC power stored in batteries to AC power that can be used as needed. Select an inverter for
your power system based on the maximum load you will be powering, the maximum surge required, AC output voltage required,
input battery voltage and optional features needed. High quality
standalone inverters are available in sizes from 100 watts, for
powering notebook
computers and fax
machines from
your car, to 60
kilowatts, for powering a commercial
operation. The size
of an inverter is
measured by its
maximum continuous output in watts.
This rating must be
larger than the total
wattage of all of the
AC loads you plan
to run at one time. Wattage of most AC loads can be determined
from a tag or label on the appliance, usually located near where
the power cord enters, or from the owner’s manual. If the inverter
is expected to run induction motors, like the ones found in top
loading washers, dryers, dishwashers and large power tools, it
must be designed to surge, or deliver power many times its rating for short periods of time while these motors start. Standalone
inverters are available with two basic power output waveforms:
sine wave, and modified sine wave (the proper term is actually
modified square wave, but since modified sine wave is much more
commonly used, we use that term in this catalog).
Grid-tie inverters, dual-function inverters and utility companies
deliver a sine wave. Exeltech, Xantrex XW Series, SMA Sunny
Island, Magnum MS and OutBack FX inverters are sine wave
off-grid inverters. Sine wave inverters have a higher cost, but
they can operate almost anything that can be operated on utility
power. Exeltech sine wave inverters are an excellent choice for
power systems running audio or telecommunications equipment
and other electronics that are waveform-sensitive. The OutBack
and Xantrex XW series inverters can be ganged together for up
to 36 kW of output and can operate off-grid or grid-tie. We now
carry Samlex sine wave PST inverters for a lower cost, a smallsystem sine wave alternative.
operates on power supplied by the utility grid. Inverters come
in many varieties, sizes and qualities and offer various features
that specialize them for particular applications.
to start large motors while their high efficiency makes them economical with power when running small loads like a stereo or a
small light. They can power most lighting, televisions, appliances
and computers very well. Unfortunately, this type of inverter may
destroy some rechargeable tools and flashlights, and laser printers
and copiers. They may not allow many laser printers, copiers,
light dimmers and some variable speed tools to operate. Equipment with silicon controlled rectifiers (SCRs) will not operate.
Some audio equipment will have a background buzz that may
be annoying to music connoisseurs.
Grid-Tie Inverters
Grid-tie, or utility intertie, inverters convert DC power from PV
modules into AC power to be fed into the utility grid. There are
two major types of grid-tie inverters; string inverters and low
voltage input inverters.
The SMA Sunny Boy, Fronius and Xantrex GT-3 inverters are
string inverters. The name “string” comes from the way the PV
modules are wired together, in series to achieve a higher voltage.
These inverters are designed to run at voltages up to 600 VDC.
String wiring is faster to install, more efficient and allows the use
of smaller gauge wire. DC voltage this high can be very dangerous and life-threatening, so string inverters should be installed
and serviced by qualified electricians.
A grid-tie PV system uses the utility company, in effect, as
its storage battery. When the sun is shining, your electricity
comes from the PV array, via the
inverter. If the PV array is generating more power than you are
using, the excess is sold to the
power utility company through
your electric meter, by making
the meter run backward. When
you need more power than the
PV array can supply, the utility
makes up the difference. This
type of system makes the most
sense in most cases where you
have utility power, because there
are no batteries to maintain or
replace. Unfortunately, if the utility power goes down, this type of
inverter will go off, too, regardless of whether or not the sun is
shining.
Xantrex TR series, Magnum, and Samlex PSE inverters have
modified sine wave output with harmonic distortion of around
40%. They are an economical choice in power systems where
waveform is not critical. Their high surge capacity allows them

Using a dual-function inverter allows you to sell excess power to
the utility, and also maintain a battery bank for standby power in
the event of a utility power failure. The Xantrex XW series, and the
OutBack GFX series inverters are primarily standalone inverters
that can function as an intertie inverter at the same time, but with
a lower efficiency than an inverter designed for grid-tie only. The
new Xantrex XW is a grid-tie inverter designed to provide battery
backup when the utility fails. The SMA Sunny Island inverter is
designed to work with a Sunny Boy inverter to provide utility
intertie (grid-tie) with battery backup.
Interference
The electronic circuitry in inverters may cause problems with
radio and television reception, noise on telephones and buzz in
audio equipment. Sine wave inverters cause the least amount of
interference. Interference can be minimized by locating the inverter
very close to the batteries, twisting together the cables that connect
the inverter to the battery, running AC lines separate from other
wiring (such as telephone wires) and locating the inverter away
from appliances that are susceptible to interference. All inverters
cause interference on AM radio!
Wiring Considerations
Standalone inverters require very high current from a battery to
operate large loads. A 2000 watt inverter running at full power in
a 12 volt system will be drawing nearly 200 amps from the battery. Large cables and good connections are required for proper
operation.
Use caution when plugging a small inverter into a lighter outlet
located far from a battery. Typical DC house wiring may have
insufficient wire sizes and too much voltage drop to supply the
current required by these inverters. All battery-based inverters
require proper fusing between the battery and the inverter.
Low Temperature Overvoltage Bypass
Protect MPPT charge controllers and grid-tie inverters from
high PV open circuit voltage at low temperatures with the new
Low Temperature Overvoltage Bypass (LTOB) from Apollo
Solar. Solar module voltage rises with drop in temperature.
Sometimes when the temperature gets very low, the voltage of
a string of several modules in series gets too high and causes
damage to a charge controller or inverter. This problem can be
solved by putting less modules in series, but sometimes this
causes a sacrifice when temperatures are high.
Now you can size the PV array for optimum performance without
regard to high open circuit voltages at low temperatures. The
Apollo Solar LTOB automatically switches modules out of the
circuit if the temperature falls below 10 degrees F. One unit is
required for each string of modules. Switch up to 8 amps per
string. Installation is simple. Just plug in M-C connectors and
stick the LTOB to back of the module. Zero power consumption.

System Design
In a typical installation, the inverter is connected to a battery
bank, a sub panel for critical loads that will be powered during
a power outage, and the house load center. If the utility is available, the inverter will supply the house loads from the utility. If
the utility fails, the inverter will supply power to the loads from
the battery. When the utility is available again, the inverter will
switch the loads back to the utility, and recharge the batteries. If
the batteries become fully charged by another power source, such
as photovoltaic modules or a wind or hydroelectric generator,
excess power may be sold back to the utility in locations where
net metering is allowed.
Output voltage
Most of the inverters we stock supply standard 120VAC 60
HZ. OutBack and Magnum inverters can be stacked in pairs for
240VAC, such as one gets from utility companies and fuel-powered
generators. The Xantrex XW and the Magnum MS4448-AE
deliver 120/240VAC power from one inverter. Most of them can
be special ordered with other output voltages and frequencies for
use anywhere in the world. See our export models and contact us
with any special requirements that you have.

Enphase
Grid-Connected Micro-Inverter System
The Enphase Micro-Inverter system is the first commercially available
micro-inverter system for residential and commercial solar PV applications.
The Enphase Micro-Inverter is a fully-integrated device that converts the
DC output from a single solar module into grid-compliant AC power. The
micro-inverter system is designed to maximize energy harvest, increase
system reliability and dramatically simplify design, installation and system
management.
Easy Design and Installation
System design is a breeze. No more string sizing exercises. No more headaches trying to layout equal lengths of strings to fit on a
roof. Each micro-inverter is mounted to the module racking structure and connected directly to the DC wires from each PV module.
The micro-inverter AC wire harnesses are connected together to form a continuous AC branch circuit that is connected to the AC
utility distribution center.
Optimal Energy Harvest
Each PV module is now individually power tracked by a micro-inverter, eliminating power loss caused by a few underperforming
modules in the array. Now you can realize the full energy potential of every PV array, reducing the power-limiting effects of shading,
dust, debris, module mismatch, and thermal differences. Problems are now isolated to a small fraction of the PV array, while the rest
of the PV system continues to function normally. Service becomes routine maintenance rather than a costly emergency.
Grid-Tie Residential
Reliability
The Enphase Micro-Inverter is qualified to a NEMA6 environment rating and operates at full power up to 65°C (149°F), allowing it
to be operated in harsh environments.
Module Level Monitoring
The Enphase Micro-Inverter system includes advanced communication, performance visualization and data analysis on a per-module
basis. Every micro-inverter communicates with the Enphase Enlighten website to show you a physically accurate representation of
your individual system and how each PV module is performing in real time. Data is monitored 24/7 and Enlighten will immediately
notify you via email of any issues it detects. For example, Enlighten will notify you if an individual module is underperforming
compared to its neighboring modules.
Ordering
There are models below for 240- and 208-volt output and they are available with MC Solarline 1 or Solarline 2 cable connections on
them. They are designed for input from a 150- to 200-watt module with 72 5-inch cells. Order the voltage to match your systems and
a connector to match your module output cables. Order one install kit for each AC branch circuit of up to 16 inverters in a 240-volt
system and one for each 26 inverters in a 208-volt system. One IEMU-01 is required for Internet monitoring on each installation. The
IEMU-01 comes with one year of monitoring on residential systems. Call for information about commercial monitoring.

The Sunny Island inverters can be used for standalone off-grid systems, and they are a great
way to add battery backup to an SMA Sunny Boy inverter based grid-connected system.
Grid-Tie System Backup
To do this, the grid-tie inverter output and the Sunny Island inverter output both feed circuit
breakers in a sub-panel that also powers critical loads ––in the event of a grid failure. As
long as grid power is present, it feeds the subpanel through the transfer switch in the Sunny
Island. If the grid fails, the Sunny Island connected to a bank of batteries acts as the source
of AC power, or the “AC grid” for that subpanel. This powers the critical loads connected to
the subpanel and keeps grid-connected systems running if the sun is shining. The loads are
actually powered directly by the grid-tie system if the sun is shining. If the grid-tie system is
putting out more power than the loads need during a grid failure, the Sunny Island charges
the batteries. At night or when power production is low and load use is high, the Sunny Island provides power from the battery bank.
In the morning, the batteries are recharged and the cycle begins anew until the grid power returns. If the grid-tie inverter has a 240
VAC output, a backup system will require two Sunny Island inverters or one inverter and an autotransformer.

day – total earning; earnings/day – earnings/year – date & time. A COM Card (030-03425 below) must
be installed in each inverter to be monitored.
IG DatCom Accessories
Remote data communications and data logging features can easily be added to transform
the inverter into a sophisticated data acquisition system and weather monitoring station. DatCom components and accessories connect to the inverter and each other with
standard Cat 5 network cables and RS-232 cables.
Datalogger Boxes and Cards
Datalogging requires a COM card to be installed in each inverter in the system and a
Datalogger Box. The Datalogger Box stores the data collected from the inverters and
any of the optional weather sensors, and connects to a PC or an external modem to
allow you to monitor your PV system from anywhere in the world. Two versions of
the Datalogger Box are available. The Datalogger Easy monitors one IG inverter.
The Datalogger Pro can monitor up to 100 Fronius IG inverters.
Sensor Box, Sensor Card and Sensors
A Sensor Box or Sensor Card is required to add weather sensors to your data acquisition system. The Sensor Box
and Card each have 6 inputs – two for measuring temperature, one for measuring irradiance, two digital inputs
for a wind speed sensor and/or kilowatt hour meter and one 20 mA current interface for a humidity sensor.

GT Grid-Tie Inverters
Xantrex GT Series grid-tie solar inverters have an integrated, lockable 600-volt PV/utility disconnect switch which may eliminate the need for external disconnects in some jurisdictions. A
split-chassis design keeps the wiring box separate from the inverter, allowing for easy access
and spacing to the AC and DC string terminals and eliminating exposed wiring during inverter
installation and removal. The wiring box includes eight 3/4-inch knockouts and easy access
DC and AC terminal blocks that accept wire sizes from #14 to #6 AWG.
Inverters
Xantrex
The GT enclosure is a NEMA 3R, allowing for both for outdoor and indoor installation. The
inverter includes a slotted, hook-style back plate for easy installation. For large systems, multiple
inverters can be mounted side by side centered on standard 16" stud spacing to reduce visible
conduit and make installations look more attractive.
GT inverters come standard with a backlit 16-character two-line liquid crystal display (LCD).
The display provides inverter power, daily and lifetime energy production, PV array voltage
and current, utility voltage and frequency, time online “selling” today, fault messages, and
two installer-customizable screens. Tapping a finger close to the LCD activates the backlight
display. With each tap, the display cycles through the communication screens. The LCD is
always on standby, ready to provide information even at night. When inverters are daisy chained
using standard Cat 5 Ethernet cable, each inverter display will report the output of the entire
system. The GT offers an isolated RS232 port and two Xanbus RJ45 communication ports. No
additional communication ports or cards are needed to connect a PC.
Grid-Tie Residential
Inverter Monitor
The monitor easily connects to Xantrex GT Series inverters using
standard off-the-shelf Cat 5 Ethernet cable. Built-in flash memory
stores PV system data and makes software upgrades simple. This
connection also provides power to the monitor, removing the need
for a monitor power supply. It displays total PV system performance
in daily, monthly and lifetime views on a graphical 128 x 64 pixel
LCD screen. The display can access detailed individual inverter
performance through the device list screen and it can display individual and total system performance for
up to five GT Series inverters. Wall mounting bracket and hardware included.
The Xantrex Communication Gateway
The Communication Gateway bridges the gap between Xantrex solar inverters and the
system owner’s computer. It logs performance data directly from the Xantrex GT inverters,
and transmits it to the included Yahoo™ Widget-based monitoring software for a simple
and graphically rich view of system performance. More than a data logger, the Gateway
offers a web page with the ability to configure automated email reports and fault status to
the user or installer. The Gateway includes both built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity
allowing for flexible and simple set up for wireless or wired connection to a router or direct
to a PC. The Gateway logs and transmits system power production, inverter-specific power production, lifetime power production
history (daily, weekly, monthly) and inverter faults. It can monitor a network consisting of up to 20 single-phase GT inverters through
a Cat 5 connection between each inverter and the gateway.

PV Powered
Residential Grid-Tie Inverters
PV Powered inverters deliver maximum energy harvest from your PV system with high
reliability and world-class efficiency. Significant software integration and a modular design
combine to create a scalable platform with fewer components and higher uptime. By employing fewer parts and ensuring those parts are of the highest quality, PV Powered has created a
line of residential grid-tie inverters that spend more time generating electricity and less time
being repaired.
Some models are available in extended and standard voltage range versions to fit the needs of
each installation. The Extended Voltage Range (115-500VDC) products offer the industry’s
lowest MPPT voltage and are the ideal choice for integration with next generation low-voltage
and building-integrated (BIPV) modules. The Standard Voltage Range (150-500VDC) products
are optimized for traditional modules. Together, the entire product line offers the most design
configurations across the widest range of PV modules.
Additional flexibility is provided by PV Powered’s new ETL-listed and NEC code-compliant
integration platform for both indoor and outdoor installations. Other system options include
different mounting methods, AC and DC disconnects, inverter status display and wired or wireless data monitoring. This flexible
approach enables visually pleasing, site-specific configurations that reduce permitting and inspection issues and reduce installation
time.
Grid-Tie Residential
Additionally, performance monitoring is available which includes low-cost, secure, web-based access to your system’s status and
performance history. With the PVM1010 option, you can maximize your system uptime and protect your solar investment. The
PVM1010 along with the secure Internet-based server operated by PV Powered is equivalent to a standalone data logging meter and
communication interface without the cost and inconvenience of installation and maintenance of a separate metering system. After
getting registered you get access to inverter information from anywhere you can connect to the Internet. Reports of power output
and energy production trends, local weather conditions and forecasts, verification that your system is working at its full potential and
collection and export of data for service and maintenance planning are all included at no charge. Just install the PVM1010 in each
inverter to be monitored and connect to a router with Cat 5 cable.

OutBack
GTFX and GVFX Grid-Tie Inverters and Systems
The OutBack G-Series inverters are the grid-interactive versions in OutBack’s FX inverter line. Available in
either sealed (GTFX) or vented (GVFX) models, these inverters allow you to sell solar, wind, and/or hydro
power back to the utility grid. If the utility power goes down, the inverter will automatically switch to battery power and your renewable energy source(s) to run your critical loads. The inverter can be set up so that
either utility power, or your renewable source, can be used to recharge the battery bank after an outage. AC
power is seamlessly switched between utility and battery power through the inverter’s built-in 60A transfer
switch. With the OutBack grid-interactive system, backup AC power is made available 24 hours a day in the event of a utility outage,
providing reliable power and peace of mind. At night, the inverter's automatic power save mode ensures that energy is not wasted
by needlessly charging your batteries from the utility grid. Daily energy production efficiency is within a few percentage points of
batteryless grid-intertie systems (depending on the condition of the battery bank). Up to two grid-interactive FXs can be combined
and wired or “stacked” for 120/240V output. The Grid-Tie FX Series Inverter/Chargers can be stacked in Classic Series only, which
is limited to two grid-interactive FXs. Note: The FW-X240 Auto Transformer cannot be used for stacking with a Grid-Interactive
FX system. However, the FW-X240 can be used to step-up the AC output of a single Grid-Interactive FX system from 120VAC to
240VAC. These inverters are not recommended for off-grid use. See page xx for OutBack off-grid inverter models.
OutBack G-Series inverters come with a standard 2-year warranty with an optional 3-year extension (5-years total). A 10-year warranty is available for California residents. ETL Listed to UL standards.

Off-Grid Inverters
The sealed, fan-cooled OutBack FX is designed to survive harsh environments. The higher
powered ventilated VFX version is a better choice in high ambient temperature applications or
where generator-powered battery charging is an important part of system battery charging.
Each inverter/charger is a complete power conversion system – DC to AC inverter, battery charger
and AC transfer switch. Additional inverter/chargers can be added at any time either in parallel
(120VAC), series (120/240VAC), or even three-phase (120Y208 VAC) configurations, allowing
the system to be tailored to the specific needs of the application, both at the time of installation
and into the future. With the addition of an X-240 autotransformer, multiple inverter systems
can be set up to provide 120/240 VAC split-phase output with the ability to provide full power
on either 120VAC leg of the system. Up to ten inverters can be connected together to provide
up to 36 kW of continuous power capacity with the use of the HUB and the MATE controller.
The inverter’s powerful battery charger operates in five stages: BULK (constant current output), ABSORB (constant voltage output),
FLOAT (reduced voltage output), SILENT (no charger output) and EQUALIZE (constant voltage regulation overcharging). Charge
time in each stage is adjustable to provide control and to maximize the performance of the charger and battery system.
Each OutBack inverter has a programmable, auxiliary relay output connection (AUX) that provides 12VDC output to run 12V cooling
or ventilation fans or operate an external relay to perform other functions, such as remote generator starting (two-wire), to disconnect
external charging sources (such as PV), or to turn on a diversion load for voltage regulation.
Off-Grid
The transfer switch is rated for 60 amps. When an external source of AC power (either a generator or the utility grid) is detected at
the “AC in” terminal on the inverter, the switch operates to transfer the loads to the external power source, and then activates the
battery charger to re-charge the battery bank.
Inverters with an M-suffix are an RV/marine version. They have a transfer switch that switches hot and neutral. Dimensions: 16.25"
L x 8.25" W x 11.5" H. ETL Listed to UL 1741. Standard 2-year warranty with an available 5-year extended warranty.
Conduit Adapters
Use the FX-DCA to connect
2" conduit to the DC side of
the inverter.
Use the FX-ACA to connect
to the AC side of the inverter.
The FX-SP-ACA replaces the
FX-ACA and offers surge protection.

OutBack MATE Remote Monitors and Hubs
The OutBack MATE is a complete system controller and display for both the OutBack inverter/
charger and MX60 MPPT PV charge controller. It provides a display of the operation as well
as allows control and adjustment of the setpoints. The OutBack MATE also coordinates the
operation of the entire system to maximize performance and to prevent multiple products from
conflicting. A single OutBack MATE is able to connect to multiple inverter/chargers, MX60
MPPT PV charge controllers and any other OutBack power conversion and control products
offered in the future. A maximum of ten OutBack products will be able to be connected to a
single MATE via Cat 5 Ethernet type cabling with 8 wire RJ45 modular connectors and the
OutBack HUB communication manager. The OutBack MATE also includes an optoisolated
RS232 port with a DB9 jack for connection to the serial port of a PC computer. The MATE2
has a flush-mount black face for panel or in-wall mounting.
New! The FLEXnet DC System Monitor
Off-Grid
The FLEXnet DC System Monitor integrates with an OutBack MATE communications device,
providing you with the data you need concerning your system’s health, performance and efficiency. Easily see your system’s current condition with this at-a-glance display. This screen
shows current state-of-charge and whether you are currently charging or discharging your
batteries. It monitors the amount of power your system is currently producing and consuming
as well as the amount of power going IN and OUT of your battery bank. It allows the Mate
to display real-time production monitoring of DC sources, such as a solar array or small wind
turbine, as well as consumption by loads. It also displays the cumulative energy your system
has produced and consumed as well as the total amount of energy that has gone to charging
your batteries today. This screen displays today’s lowest state-of-charge and allows you to
see how your overall system production compares to system consumption. Review historical
energy production and consumption data for the most recent 128 days, including the minimum
battery state-of-charge reached for each day. This screen can be used to watch power system
production and consumption trends.
A HUB is required to connect more than one inverter to the same load or to connect inverters,
MATEs and MX charge controllers to allow programming and monitoring of the entire system
by the MATE.
The RTS remote temperature sensor is important for accurate battery charging, especially if
the batteries get very warm or cold. If used with a HUB, one temperature sensor can be shared
by all inverters and MX charge controllers.

NEW! Samlex Sine Wave Inverter/Chargers
The SL inverter is a low-cost, heavy-duty pure sine wave inverter, primarily
designed for backup power in places where power is unreliable. It can supply
power to various loads such as resistive load (heater), inductive load (air conditioners, refrigerator), motors (vacuum cleaners), and rectifier load (computer).
All SL-series inverters are designed to work in heavy load condition. De-rating
is not necessary. It has a built-it battery charger and transfer switch. It can be
a good choice for remote cabins with small generator backup.
The smart charger can be set with different charging profiles and battery capacities to match various battery types and sizes.
When used for backup to utility power, the internal transfer switch automatically transfers the output between inverter and utility
source. When the utility voltage is low or off, it switches to the inverter power. Otherwise the load is connected to the utility source.
The transfer time is 1/4~1/2 of the total cycle time. The high-power charger (40A on the SL2024 for example) can charge a 24V/400
Ah battery bank in 10 hours.
SL series is an extremely good choice for utility backup power. It also can be used as a UPS for computers. 1-year warranty.

PowerHub 1800
The Xantrex PowerHub is designed with the do-it-yourselfer in mind. The PowerHub
is an inverter/battery charger combination with an attached battery box for two 100
amp-hour 12-volt batteries. One or two battery boxes can be attached to the PowerHub.
The battery box holds two 12.74L x 8.0W x 13.0H batteries. Use Group 27 sized batteries. The PowerHub 1800 comes with one battery box. Order PH1800-BBX if you
need more battery capacity.
The PowerHub with two fully charged 100 Ah batteries can deliver up 950 watt-hours
of electricity to run small appliances in a weekend cabin or during a power failure.
The PowerHub allows batteries to be recharged with a small wind generator and/or
PV systems, with a gas generator or with utility power. It does not have a built-in charge controller for PV modules but it has two DC
charging inputs, one at 32 amps maximum, labeled PV and one at 80 amps labeled wind. Both could be used for PV with the addition
of a charge controller. The 80-amp input is suitable for an AirX wind turbine (page 61) which has a built-in regulator.
When AC power is available from a generator or utility grid, the PowerHub will function as an automatic backup power unit. It will
sit in bypass mode and will pass the power through to support the loads and/or the battery charger. When AC power is connected to
the unit, input from wind or solar will not be used for powering the loads. When the AC input fails, the PowerHub’s automatic transfer
relay de-energizes and will switch the unit to inverter mode within 40 milliseconds.
Once AC input is restored, after a 20-second delay the relay energizes and qualifies the AC input and the load is automatically reconnected to the primary AC source.
When no AC power is available from a generator or utility grid, the inverter draws power from the battery bank and delivers a
modified-sine wave AC output voltage. This output voltage can be accessed by using the four outlets on the front of the unit or by
hard wiring the unit to the AC distribution panel which provides AC power to AC outlets at the site.
The inverter control panel provides a user interface for monitoring power levels, battery levels, and controlling the inverter functions and displays. Four 120VAC outlets on the front panel provide up to 1440W (continuous) output power. One 15 A supplemental
protector provides over-load protection to the four AC outlets on the front panel. CSA Listed. 1-year warranty.

These high-efficiency DC to DC converters can be used to step-up or step-down
battery voltage. These converters are bidirectional so they can be used to increase
or decrease voltage. They can be used to
operate 12-volt loads on a 24- or 48-volt
battery system or to run a 24-volt refrigerator on a 48-volt battery system. See the
table below for up and down voltage and
current limits. 1-year warranty.

Converters & Transformers
These AC step-up and step-down transformers
are greater than 98% efficient and cause less
than 0.2% idle loss at no load. They are nearly
silent when operating. Use an autotransformer
as a step-down to connect the 240-volt output of a generator to the
120-volt input on an inverter. This allows full output power of a
240-volt generator to be used for battery charging. Autotransformers can step-up voltage to operate 240-volt appliances and motors
from the 120-volt output of an inverter. NEMA3R enclosures with
knockouts for conduit. 2-year warranty.
