The best you can hope for is 100% efficiency. Sadly, most chargers are only .707 percent efficient when they convert the AC to DC. So charging the battery is going to lose 30% of the electricity your paying for, even if the inverter is 100% efficient, which they aren't, they are actually probably close to 90%, you lose more money converting the DC power back to AC. Not to mention that the average battery loses 1% of its charge over a month. Your better off just following published conservation topics to save on your electric bill.

Xantrex inverter error codes


This information expands upon the error code information contained in the Link 2000 Owner?s Manual.
E-01 Inverter high DC/Battery voltage shutdown Battery voltage has risen above 15.5 VDC for 12-volt models or 31 VDC for 24-volt models.
E-02 Inverter low DC/Battery voltage shutdown Battery voltage has dropped below 10 VDC for 12-volt units or 20 VDC for 24-volt units.
E-03 Inverter or Charger overtemp shutdown Unit will reset automatically after it has cooled sufficiently.
E-04 Battery overload Caused by excessively discharged batteries. See section in inverter owner?s manual titled ?Charging overdischarged batteries.?
E-05 AC Backfeed AC power from an outside source has been fed to the AC output of the inverter. Potentially damaging to the unit. Disconnect incoming AC power and correct the situation.

Xantrex model rs2000. just purchased used. owner said all worked. got wired up, charger does not operate, shows no external power source, (led not lit). checked power to unit, at 119-123 acv.. inverter...


If it shows NO external source, then this is most likely the best place to look to find out why not?

Now above is a link that show you how to troubleshoot an AC inverter. Now below, there is a service manual, here at the back, is a factory troubleshooting chart that will be beneficial to you.

The Biggest problems with Inverters is Flat/Low/Bad batteries, Sometimes it pays to remove the batteries and charge then up remotely, and then replace them, fully charged, Now a fully charged 12 volt battery should have 13.8 V DC at the terminals with NO LOAD. If the battery only reads 12 V it is not properly charged.

I'm dumb. Can I hook an inverater to my generator and produce more enegry than my generator produces???


Please understand that the generator produces power from fuel with an engine wheras the invertor is one which genrerates power from a stored battery using the principle of frequency switching a DC source to induct and produce AC.
Now you can have an uninterupted power supply setting with the invertor backed up by the generator so that when the battery voltage goes down you can start and charge the invertor and also supply the extra energy .
the ratings of both must also be considered.

I have small portable generator with 220 vac in the philippines and a 12amp 12 v ac to dc converter. can i connect my 1000 w inverter to produce 120 vac becouse i dont have the batteries yet to run the...


no these are made to run off a batteries the 12 volt supplied from the gen is for charging batteries only and if the engine for starting the gen set has a battery their usual to small to run then their made for car style batterers.
hope this helps

Curcuit dc protection


For your inverter to charge two 12 volts
650 amper hour, it will require a current
between 7amp s to 15amps. So i will
recommend a 60amps circuit breaker.
The best type should be such that
allows a firm contact so that there is no
voltage drop. An example is any type
that will need you to use a cable log.
Any connection via cable logs provides
a very firm contact.Note that a lose
contact will reduce the run time of you
inverter and will make the charging
time to be longer than expected.

Lost the wall charger of my Schumacher 400w power inverter (model PP-2200), where can I get another one?


Ah, I see, it seems what you have is a power pack. If so it would contain a gelcell battery, probably 12 volts. If this is true, then you may charge it with any 14-16 volt wall charger. You have to make sure you observe correct voltage and correct polarity when connecting up. Also you may have to obtain and change the plug on the charger wire.
I'm assuming the battery DC output is inverted to AC and you use it to power small AC appliances.

How do i tell when the inverter is charged?


Question does not seem to match this inverters capability.

INFO:
This Power Inverter converts vehicle’s 12-volt DC power into household 115-volt AC power. AC and USB outlets power and/or recharge personal electronics.

We have owned one of these Power inverters for over a year now and have run a great deal with it, from TV to drill press PC and any thing that was small and that could run from my car. Very nice product.

SET UP: Connect wires. ensure correct polarity, push button on top. Plug in 110 volt appliance.

Hope this tip was of some use.

Just do not understand it at all! can you help with model ar-ry7?


An inverter uses 12 volt DC current and inverts it to 110 volt AC current.
Basically, it will take 12 volts from a car battery, and change it to 110 volt current , same as in your house. What part are you having problems with?
