Yes, this works great during a power outage. Just make sure ahead of time the item you would like to run is compatible with a Modified Sine Wave Inverter. If in doubt, just call the appliance manufacturer and ask if the item will work with Modified Sine Wave .

Question

When is the front cooling fan supposed to run?

w/ no load & just turning it on cold, the fan sometimes runs & sometimes doesn't run. Also, long after a heavy load is finished, the fan will often not shut off by itself. If I turn something small on then off, the fan will then stop.

I have installed it as directed in your note. There is plenty of ventalation. It is not behaving as a thermal fan should as I described above.

answer 2
Incorrect set up can actually affect fan operation, first ensure correct installation. 2 positive and 2 negative cables must be used. The negative cables must be attached directly to the battery negative post, no chassis ground. For a 3 foot run use 4 gauge cable, do not use jumper cables and clamps, this must be a permanent bolt and nut installation. Adequate ventilation and mounting away from heat sources is required. The fan is a thermal activated fan so it will come on and off as needed to cool the circuit board down. For further assistance, please contact 1-877-619-6321.

To use 2 6 volt batteries with a 12 volt inverter you have to wire the batteries in series. One wire from the positive of one battery to the negative of the next. Then wire one set of the inverter terminals to the two leftover battery terminals, making sure the polarities are correct, as described in the inverter manual. And use large enough wire. There are charts on-line that provide wire sizes given expected max current and wire length.

The two inputs halves the current load between the four cables which allows the use of more readily available 4-gauge cables . Connect your two 6-volt batteries in series. The two Positive cables from the inverter will go to 6 Volt battery #1 open Positive post. The two Negative cables from the inverter will go to the 6 Volt battery #2 open Negative post. Ensure all cables (4 total, 2 positive and 2 negative) are clean on both ends and are 4 gauge (less than 3 feet long). Clean the battery terminals until they are shiny lead. Do not use a set of clamps on the battery terminals, this unit must be permanently connected to the battery. Use ring terminal ends on both ends of the (four) 4 gauge battery cables (a bolt passes through the ends to secure the ends to the battery and the inverter). Secure all nuts/bolts with a wrench to ensure correct contact. Both negative cables must go back to the battery negative terminal.

Question

3000 watt inverter - connecting 2 marine batteries

Does it matter whether each battery is independently connected to 1 of the 2 sets of terminals, or connecting one battery to the terminals on one side and then connecting the second battery in parallel to the first battery?

Connect the batteries in parallel to the 2 sets of terminals to maximize on run time.You also need a charging source to charge the batteries

answer 2
Yes it does matter. The four cables from the back of the inverter MUST ALL be connected to battery #1. Battery #1 can then be connected to Battery #2 (Parallel) to provide longer run time, while still being 12 Volts.

Question

Can I use this for an off grid solar system

I am just wondering If I could hook this up to a 250 watt solar panel that would be hooked up to 2 deep cycle 12v batteries.

If you use solar panels YOU MUST HAVE A CHARGE CONTROLLER . Most large solar panels put out between 30 and 40 volts DC.

The charge controller will lower the volts to 12 v dc and the amperage will rise . When the batteries are fully charged the charge controller will go into trickle mode . It is like the brains of the system .

Don't hook up a solar panel straight to the batteries .

Yes, this inverter is commonly used for off the grid applications and can be used with your solar panel/battery system.

YES Only on the 12 V DC side with a lot of batteries .

I have 3 different inverters all running off of 24 batteries in parallel 12v dc .

The 120v AC sides must all be separate loads never to be interconnected in any way EVER !.

You need mint connections and plenty of battery and charging for that set up to get good performance .

Yes you can have the 1000 and 3000W inverter attached to the same battery bank and running at the same time. DC power cables would be separate for each unit (4 for the 3000w and 2 for the 1000w).

Absolutely, the inverter can be hooked up to multiple batteries as long as the nominal voltage remains at 12V. For your connections to the inverter, make sure you run two 4-gauge cables from the positive post of the first battery in your string – one to each of the two positive terminals of the inverter and two 4-gauge cables from the negative post of the last battery in your string – one to each of the two negative terminals of the inverter.

You MUST use 4 cables to make your connections: Run 2 cables from the "+" battery post, one to each of the "+" terminals on the inverter. Run 2 cables from the "-" battery post, one to each to each of the "-" terminals on the inverter.

The inverter was designed with dual connections to allow you to use easy-to-find 4-gauge cables.

Note, 4-gauge cables are appropriate for runs under 3'. If you are going longer #not recommended# then you will have to upsize the gauge of your battery cables accordingly.

This inverter is not CSA approved to be tied into a panel . It will not pass ESA Code .

Only Approved inverters with hard wiring can be used for this .

But it would work in a 120 v application .
Use 10 awg wire .

BEE CAREFULL if you decide to break the rules .
No warranty , do at your own risk .

I have seen worse in other countries .

This unit is not designed to be tied into a panel. Opening or altering the inverter could pose a safety hazard and may void the warranty. The AC appliances you would like to run should only be plugged directly into the outlets on the inverter.
