Inverters convert stored direct current(DC) power in your batteries into alternating power (AC) power, like the kind you get in your home, so you can run your electrical appliances wherever you are. There are two types of inverters pure sine wave and modified sine wave. Modified sine wave inverters are a more basic form of technology than pure sine wave inverters, they produce power that is perfectly adequate for powering simple electronics. Use modified sine wave inverters to provide power for your less sensitive appliances like phone chargers, heaters, and air conditioners. Modified inverters are best suited for resistive loads which don’t have a start-up surge. 

Pure sine wave inverters use more sophisticated technology to protect even the most sensitive electronics. Pure sine wave inverters produce power that equals – or is better than – the power in your home. Appliances that may not function properly, or which may be permanently damaged, without pure, smooth power will be safe with pure sine inverters. Use these inverters for televisions, laptops, digital microwaves, fridges, and other sensitive electronic equipment. Pure Sine inverters can power just about any AC appliance without risk of damage.


  • Communication Port:
  • The Ve. Direct Port Can Be Connected To:
  • A Computer ( To Usb Interface Cable Needed)
  • Apple And Android Smartphones, Tablets, Macbook’s And Other Devices ( Bluetooth Smart Dongle Needed)
  • Fully Configurable:
  • Low Battery Voltage Alarm Trip And Reset Levels
  • Low Battery Voltage Cut-off And Restart Levels
  • Dynamic Cut-off: Load Dependent Cut-off Level
  • Output Voltage 210 – 245v
  • Frequency 50 Hz Or 60 Hz
  • – Eco Mode On/off And Eco Mode Sense Level
  • Monitoring:
  • – In- And Output Voltage, % Load, And Alarms
  • Proven Reliability:
  • The Full Bridge Plus Toroidal Transformer Topology Has Proven Its Reliability Over Many Years. The Inverters Are Short Circuit Proof And Protected Against Overheating, Whether Due To Overload Or High Ambient Temperature.
  • High Start-up Power:
  • Needed To Start Loads Such As Power Converters For Led Lamps, Halogen Lamps, Or Electric Tools.
  • When In Eco Mode, The Inverter Will Switch To Standby When The Load Decreases Below A Preset Value (Min Load: 15w). Once In Standby, The Inverter Will Switch On For A Short Period (Adjustable, Default: Every 2,5 Seconds). If The Load Exceeds A Preset Level, The Inverter Will Remain On.
  • A Remote On/off Switch Can Be Connected To A Two-pole Connector, Or Between Battery Plus And The Left-hand Contact Of The Two-pole Connector.
  • Led Diagnosis:
  • Please See The Manual For A Description.
  • To Transfer The Load To Another Ac Source: The Automatic Transfer Switch:
  • For Our Low-power Inverters We Recommend Our Filax Automatic Transfer Switch. The Filax Features A Very Short Switchover Time (Less Than 20 Milliseconds) So That Computers And Other Electronic Equipment Will Continue To Operate Without Disruption.
