    Using IGBT/PWM technology the inverter converts the DC voltage supplied by the batteries to AC voltage of a precise stabilized amplitude and frequency, suitable for most sophisticated electrical equipment. True sinusoidal output waveform with very low distortion (less than 3% for linear loads). Overload capability of up to 150% for 12 line cycles.


    Fully automatic, temperature compensated, microprocessor controlled charger recharges fully discharged batteries in maximum 24 hours at nominal AC input voltage. AC input current limiting and over-voltage protection included.


    System is provided standard with 10 year, maintenance free, sealed valve regulated, front terminals Lead Calcium batteries. 20 year sealed Lead Calcium battery also available. 90 min. standard discharge time at full load under normal operating temperature. Low Voltage Disconnect protection included. No special ventilation required.


    Automatic self tests consist of a 5-minute monthly and 90-minute annual function. The front-mounted control panel includes 5 LED indicators, a 2-line 20-character LCD display, and a keypad to control and monitor the internal operation of the system. This control panel allows the operator to easily “watch” system functions as they occur and check on virtually any aspect of the system’s operation. Standard RS232 diagnostic interface.
