*AC output voltages of 110, 120, 220 and 230 are available on application.
* DC operating voltage range 92% to 130% of nominal.

Common to all units:

  • Automatic Bypass: Supply is maintained by the generator if the inverter is off line.
  • Low distortion, high power load presented to generator during charging for best generator performance.
  • All units available in 220 / 230 / 240 VAC 50 or 60 Hz output (240 / 415, 230 / 380V three phase plus neutral connection). 120 / 208 VAC on application.
  • Data Logging Remote Access: RS232 port, standard data logging and remote access via modem, satellite, GSM and CDMA technology.
  • Cooling: Convection and thermostatically controlled fans.
  • Enclosures: Electronics IP50, transformer and heatsink IP23. Weatherproof enclosures or rack mounting are available on request.
  • Protection: Over current trip, over voltage, over temperature, reverse polarity, fast electronic trip, transient over voltage protection.

Standards:

All inverters are designed to AS3100 / AS2604 / AS61000.3.5 and the draft AS/NZ standard for grid connect inverters.
Low distortion, high power presented to to generator during charging for best generator performance.
Refer to sales staff for details of applicable compliance testing.
