Selectronic SE30 Inverter

Features | Specifications

Please note:

As the new SE32 has improved upon and replaced the SE30, the SE30 inverter is discontinued as of November 23, 1999.

The SE30 information below is for reference only.

Proving that the Selectronic research and development team are not sitting idle, the SE30 delivers 16% more continuous power, 8.5% more surge power, and is smaller and lighter than its predecessor the SA30. Further to these improvements the SE30 is also more cost effective than the SA30. We believe this makes the SE30 one of the best value for money inverters available.


The SE30 features a Liquid Crystal Display panel, allowing you to adjust the important parameters of the inverter whilst providing information about the system. This makes the SE30 compatible with any remote power system.

Designed for medium to large remote power systems, the SE30 has enough power to start and run most household appliances.

Demand Start
Demand Start/Standby mode means the SE30 will turn on and off as required with any type of load. Should you need a different sensitivity setting, simply programme the on board micro-processor via the front panel to start the smallest load or overcome a phantom load. This feature will save you valuable battery power and can be overridden if necessary.

The liquid crystal display will actively show you INVERTER STATUS, AC VOLTS, AC AMPS and BATTERY VOLTS. The display will also alert you to the cause of any inverter shutdown due to high or low DC volts, AC overload and temperature overload. A set of diagnostic readings can also be accessed to assist in remote trouble shooting.

High & Low DC Voltage Cut Out
Low voltage and high voltage cut out are fully adjustable.

Totally protected against thermal overload, current overload and AC short circuit. Input and output are electronically isolated for your safety, and MEN compatibility.

Whilst the SE30 is a very sophisticated inverter, it does not require complex programming. Most systems will work perfectly well with the factory settings, or alternatively your supplier can programme your inverter before despatch.

Modular Construction
The SE30 features a unique modular construction allowing for quick easy on-site repairs by any authorised person. Important down time is minimised.
