    Grounding

    The power inverter has a lug on the rear panel marked “chassis

    ground”. This is to connect the chassis of the power inverter to the

    ground. The ground terminals in the AC outlets on the front panel of

    the inverters are also connected to the ground lug.

    The chassis ground lug must be connected to the grounding point,

    which will vary depending on where the power inverter is installed. In

    a vehicle, connect the chassis ground to the chassis of the vehicle.

    In a boat, connect to the boat’s grounding systems. In a fixed

    location, connect the chassis ground lug to earth.

    The neutral (common) conductor the power inverter AC output circuit

    is connected to the chassis ground. Therefore, when the chassis is

    connected to the ground, the neutral conductor will also be

    grounded. This conforms to the national electrical code requirements

    the separately derived AC sources (such as inverters and

    generators) have their neutral tied to ground in the same way that

    the neutral conductor from the utility line to ground at AC breaker

    panel.

    Caution

    The negative DC input of the power inverter is connected to the

    chassis. Do not install the power inverter in a positive ground DC

    system. As positive ground DC system has the positive terminal of

    the battery connected to the chassis of the vehicle or to the ground

    point.

    QUICK HOOK UP AND TESTING

    If you would like to quickly hook up the power inverter and check its

    performance before going ahead with your installation, please follow

    these guidelines:

    1. Unpack and inspect the power inverter, check to see that the

    power switch in the OFF position.

    2. Connect the cable to the power input terminals on the rear panel of

    power inverter. The red terminal is positive (+) and black terminal is

    negative (-). Connect the cable into the terminals and tighten the wing

    nut to clamp the wires securely.

    3. Connect the cable from the negative terminal of the inverter to the

    negative terminal of the power source. Make a secure connection.

    Caution

    Loosely tightened connectors result in excessive voltage drop and may

    cause overheated wires and melted insulation.

    4. Before proceeding further, carefully check that the cable you have just

    connected connects from the negative terminal of inverter to the

    negative output terminal of the power source.

    5. When connecting the inverter directly to your battery terminals, it is

    important to connect with right polarity (connect

    ⊕ from inverter to ⊕ of

    battery terminal and connect

    ⊖ from inverter to ⊖ of battery terminal)

    Warning

    You may observe a spark when you make this connection since

    current may flow to charge capacitors in the power inverter. Do not

    make this connection in the presence of flammable fumes, as

    explosion or fire may result.

    6. Set the power switch to the ON position. Check the meters and

    indicators on the front panels of the inverters. The voltage bar graph

    should indicate 11 to 14 volts, depending on the voltage of the power

    source. If it does not, check your power source and the connections to

    inverter. The other indicators should be off.

    7. Set power inverter switch to the OFF position, the indicator lights may

    blink and the internal alarm may sound momentarily. This is normal.

    Plug the test load into the AC receptacle on the front panel of the

    inverter. Leave the test load switch off.

    8. Set power inverter switch to the ON position and turn the test

    load on, the inverter should supply power to the load. If you plan

    to measure the true output R.M.S. voltage of inverter, a meter

    such as FLUKE 87A, BACKMAN 4410 or TRIPLETT 4200 must

    be used.

    CAUTION:

    • DO NOT USE THE INVERTER IN A POSITIVELY GROUNDED

    VEHICLE.

    RECOMMENDATION

    • If the power inverter makes a beeping sound, turn OFF the

    power inverter and disconnect all appliances from inverter and

    disconnect the inverter from power supply. The beeping sound

    is simply the low battery warning, which indicates that the

    voltage of the battery power supply is getting low. Please restart

    the vehicle engine before operating the power inverter.

    • When you are not using the inverter, turn the power switch to

    OFF and disconnect the inverter from power supply.

    • Disconnect the inverter when starting the vehicle’s engine.

    CAUTION:

    THE FOLLOWINGS OPERATION WILL DAMAGE AND VOID THE

    WARRANTY OF THE INVERTER:

    • REVERSE POLARITY BY CONNECTING THE WIRES TO THE

    INCORRECT TERMINALS.

    • CONNECTING THE BATTERY CHARGER TO REPLENISH

    BATTERY WITHOUT DISCONNECTING THE INVERTER

    FIRST.

    • CONNECTING THE INVERTER TO POWER SOURCE GREATER

    THAN 15-VOLT DC.

    • OPERATING THE INVERTER AND BATTERY IN OR AROUND

    WATER.

    RECOMMENDED BATTERY CONFIGURATION FOR HEAVY-

    DUTY APPLICATION

    Heavy-duty alternators rated above 120 Amps should be used and

    they are available from RV, marine or auto parts suppliers. These

    alternators are designed to directly replace standard alternators but

    produce the higher current and voltage required to charge multiple

    battery systems.

    An isolator is used to separate the vehicle’s system batteries and the

    auxiliary batteries.

    We recommend using the same deep cycle type of batteries in the

    battery banks.

    Notes

    The above system should be installed properly. You need to contact the

    RV or auto experts for some instructions.

    SAFETY PRECAUTION

    Do not open the case of the inverter. The high voltage inside the unit is the

    same type of power as your electrical outlets at home.

    Do not let the cord of the inverter or any appliance’s cord get wet.

    Do not operate the inverter in or around water. The voltage of the unit

    makes electrical shock hazard if operated in wet conditions.

    Do not connect the AC inverter directly to another AC power source.

    Keep it away from children, the inverter produces power just like your AC

    wall outlets at home and should be treated seriously.

    Allow at least 2 inch of clearance around the inverter for airflow.

    If you operate the inverter in a moving vehicle, you need to secure the

    inverter to prevent it from shifting around while the vehicle is moving.

    If there is anything wrong with the inverter, disconnect all of the power.

    Check the receptacle wiring.

    MAINTENANCE

    Very little maintenance is required to keep the inverter operating

    properly.

    DESCRIPTION

    6000W Peak Power — allow you to power appliances that require a

    large amount of initial (peak) power to work (such as many TVs and

    motor-power equipments).

    Low Battery Alarm — the inverter sounds an audible alarm then

    turns itself off if the source battery becomes too low.

    Auto Shutdown/Reset Protection — the inverter shuts itself down

    to protect from low battery drained.

    Overload/Short Circuit Protection — the inverter automatically

    turns itself off if the connected load is too high or if it shorts.

    Fuse — the inverter comes with fuse/s already installed.

    2 AC Outlets — allows you to power up many appliances at the

    same time.

    HEAT DISPERSAL

    The inverter generates heat while it is working. This is not a malfunction.

    However, if the inverter gets too hot while working, it will turn off by itself.

    Position the inverter where air flows freely around it to allow the heat to

    disperse.

    The inverter’s thermal protection prevents it from operating when its

    temperature exceeds 130 ± 10 °F / 55 ± 5 °C.
