Tripp Lite APSX6048VR Inverter/Charger

Tripp Lite's APSX6048VR DC-to-AC inverter with automatic line-to-battery transfer and integrated charging system serves as an extended run UPS, a standalone power source or an automotive inverter. Supplies up to 6000 watts of continuous 208 or 230V sine wave AC power from any 48V battery or automotive DC source. When hardwire AC input is energized, commercial power passes through to connected equipment and the battery set is recharged via 3 stage, 23/90 amp charging system. In UPS mode, the APS system responds to blackouts and severe voltage fluctuations with a near instantaneous automatic transfer to battery-derived AC output. Includes a set of high current DC input terminals for simple installation (user supplies batteries and cabling - see owner's manual for recommendations). Passes sine wave utility or generator power during battery charging and UPS line power operation, and sine wave AC output in inverter and UPS backup modes. Built-in Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) corrects line power AC brownouts and overvoltages without using battery power during battery charging and UPS standby modes. Reliable large transformer design, with frequency control powers resistive electronic loads or large inductive motors, compressors and other items with high current needs on startup. Optional APSRM4 wired remote power switch with full status LEDs provides remote power inverter on/off switching and continuous status information (part# APSRM4 sold separately). Supports an unlimited amount of runtime with any number of user-supplied batteries connected. Highly adaptable to a variety of applications and site conditions with adjustable charger settings for wet/gel battery types and selectable line to battery power transfer voltages.

* APSX6048VR serves as an automotive or stationary DC-to-AC inverter with automatic line-to-battery transfer and integrated battery charger
* Supports 208 or 230V AC output from a 208 or 230V AC line power source or 48V DC battery source
* Automatic transfer between line and battery power supports UPS protection during blackouts and severe voltage fluctuations for equipment compatible with a selectable full or 1/2 cycle transfer times
* 6000 watts continuous sinewave AC output in inverter mode
* Double Boost inverter output supports momentary startup loads up to 200% of the continuous rating for up to 10 seconds (see specification chart)
* OverPower inverter output supports longer duration overloads to 150% for up to 60 seconds under ideal battery and temperature conditions. (For best results, utilize OverPower usage for as short of a duration as possible, ensure battery bank and cabling is able to provide full nominal DC voltage under load and allow inverter/charger to fully cool before and after OverPower usage.)
* 3 stage, selectable 23/90 amp battery charger with adjustable settings for wet/gel battery types offers fast, reliable battery recharging
* Protected DC hardwire bolt-down input lugs safely accept heavy gauge DC input wiring from attached battery bank
* Protected hardwire AC output passes 208/230V line or inverter power sinewave AC output through to connected equipment
* Reliability enhanced large-transformer design with protected DC wiring terminals
* Moisture-resistant construction enables vehicular or marine operation in high humidity environments
* 3 position operating mode switch supports "AUTO" mode to enable automatic transfer between DC and AC modes, CHARGE-ONLY to maintain a full battery charge when AC is present without auto transfer and SYSTEM OFF settings
* Set of six front panel LEDs display AC/DC operational modes, overload status, DC voltage level, shutdown status and system fault status
* Set of 4 configuration dip switches support AC input selection of 208/240V, selectable 50 /60Hz frequency, and selectable full or half cycle transfer times
* Set of 4 configuration dip switches support wet/gel battery charging profiles, adjustable 235/245V (208V)/260/270V (230V) high voltage auto transfer during overvoltages and selectable 165/175V (208V)/170/180V (230V) AC low voltage auto transfer during brownouts
* Set of 4 additional configuration dip switches support battery equalization program and battery charger low/high settings
* Automatic thermostatically controlled multi-speed cooling fans protect the inverter from load and temperature related failures
* Grounding lug properly connects the inverter/charger system to earth ground or vehicle grounding system
* Automatic overload and thermal shutoff safely turns off inverter as excessive loads or overheating conditions develop
* Front panel remote control connector enables remote off/on switching (APSRM4 sold separately). Optional APSRM4 accessory also includes user configurable jacks to support inverter shutoff or startup as a vehicle ignition is engaged
* Load sensing control dial enables adjustable load threshold required to automatically turn the inverter on and off in DC mode as load conditions change
* Automatic Generator Starter jack enables user configuration of automatic generator startup as inverter batteries drop to 46.0 VDC and generator shutoff as inverter batteries are recharged to 56.4 VDC.
* Remote battery temperature sensing connection function prolongs battery life by adjusting the charge float voltage level based on battery temperature


* Versatile inverter/charger system with auto-transfer switching serves as an automotive inverter for RVs, over-the-road trucking, conversion vans and fleet service vehicles; a standalone alternative power source for off-grid, alternative energy or export applications and as an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) for items compatible with selectabe half-cycle (10ms) or full-cycle (20ms) transfer times.
