WARNING

  • MAKE SURE THE WIRING IS DISCONNECTED FROM ALL ELECTRICAL SOURCES BEFORE HANDLING. ALL WIRING MUST BE DONE IN ACCORDANCE WITH LOCAL AND NATIONAL ELECTRICAL WIRING CODES.
  • DO NOT DISASSEMBLE THE INVERTER. IT DOES NOT CONTAIN SERVICEABLE PARTS. ATTEMPTING TO SERVICE THE UNIT YOURSELF COULD RESULT IN ELECTRICAL SHOCK OR BURN.

Inverter Error Codes

  • E‐1: Low battery voltage – the input voltage has dropped beneath 10.5 volts for several seconds. The PDI1200 series inverter will automatically restart when the input voltage reaches 12.0 volts.
  • E‐2: High battery voltage shutdown – the input voltage has surpassed 15.5 volts. The PDI series inverter will automatically restart when the input voltage falls below 15.0 volts.
  • E‐3: AC output overload shutdown – the output power has surpassed the continuous power limit or the peak power limit. The PDI1200 series inverter will not automatically restart, a manual start is necessary.
  • E‐4: Over temperature shutdown – the internal temp of the inverter has exceeded its safe operating limit. The PDI1200 series inverter will automatically restart when internal temperatures return to safe operating conditions.
  • E‐5: Internal error – an internal error has been detected. The PDI1200 series inverter will not automatically restart. A manual restart is necessary.

Inverter Troubleshooting
The inverter is flashing a fault light – A fault has been detected. 30 seconds after the fault condition is detected the display enters sleep mode. Press the select button to view the error code. Press the select button again to view the battery voltage. Proceed to the correct troubleshooting action below.

  • E‐1 is displayed – The input voltage fell below 10.5 volts DC. The inverter will automatically restart when the DC input voltage is increased to 12 volts DC.
    • Recharge the batteries to at least 12 volts DC
    • Ensure all DC input connections are tightened
    • The inverter is turning on and off, and E‐1 is displayed when it is off – Likely the batteries are nearly fully discharged. When a heavy load is being drawn from a battery the battery voltage will drop causing an under‐voltage error. With the inverter turned off the battery voltage will slowly drift back up because there is no load on the batteries. If the battery voltage drifts back up to 12 volts, the inverter will turn back on. This cycle may repeat several times. This will be seen more often when batteries are nearing the end of their life cycle.
    • Re-charge batteries to 12 volts
    • Ensure all DC input connections are tight
    • Make sure the DC input wire size and length are correct
    • Replace batteries
  • The battery is fully charged but the inverter displays E‐1 immediately after it is turned on –The batteries may be fully charged, but if the battery voltage is not properly connected to the DC input terminals of the inverter, a low battery fault may be falsely triggered.
  • Make sure the DC input wire size and length are correct
  • E‐2 is displayed – The input voltage has exceeded 15.5 volts. The inverter will automatically restart when the input voltage is decreased to 15 volts.
    • Turn off the inverter by holding down the power button. Locate the DC source and verify it is properly connected for 12‐volt operation ï‚· Eâ€
    • 3 is displayed – An overload condition has been detected, this can be excessive power or a peak power that exceeds 2x rate power. A manual restart is required after the overload issue has been resolved.
    • Check output wiring for a short
    • Determine what loads are connected to the output of the inverter. Remove any unnecessary loads until power is below maximum rated power
  • Determine peak power drawn from inductive loads (refrigerators and other motor drive loads). If total peak power draw exceeds 2x rate power loads remove loads until peak power is below 2x rate power
    ï‚· Eâ€Z4 is displayed – An over-temperature condition has occurred. The inverter will automatically restart when the internal temp falls to a safe operating level.

    • Ensure that debris hasn’t fallen into the fan opening and hindered its operation
    • Ensure that the inverter has adequate airflow. If surrounded by any stored items, remove them and make sure to keep the area clear in the future
  • Lower the ambient air temperature to room temperature
  • The inverter is turning on and off and Eâ€
    • 4 is displayed when An over-temperature condition has occurred. The inverter will automatically restart when the internal temp falls to a safe operating level.
    • Ensure that debris hasn’t fallen into the fan opening and hindered its operation
    • Ensure the inverter has adequate airflow. If surrounded by any stored items, remove them and make sure to keep the area clear in the future
    • Lower the ambient air temperature
      ï‚· E‐5 is displayed  During startup the inverter draws a small amount of current to charge the input capacitors. If that current exceeds a normal range the inverter will shut down and report the error.
  • Ensure that all DC input connections are tightened properly
  • Verify that all DC input wire is the proper size and length ï‚· The inverter is off and nothing happens when the power button is pressed – It is likely that the DC input power is not being properly applied to the DC input terminals.
    • Ensure all DC input connections are properly tightened
    • Ensure that all external DC
    • Disconnect switches are in the on position
  • Make sure the DC input wires are connected to positive and negative terminals correctly and not reversed If using the remote display model, make sure that it is connected to the inverter using the provided cable.
  • The inverter has turned off for seemingly no reason – An interruption in the communication between the display and the inverter has taken place.
    • Check to make sure that the equipment ground wire is properly secured to the ground lug
  • The inverter is making a buzzing noise – A buzzing sound may sometimes be present during large surges in output power. This will most commonly take place when a refrigerator compressor is starting up, this is normal and will not last more than 2 seconds.
