  • NORMAL MODE: Output voltage set at approximately  VDC.
  • BOOST MODE: If the converter senses that the battery voltage has dropped below a preset level the output voltage is increased to approximately 14.4 VDC to rapidly recharge the battery.
  • STORAGE MODE: When there has been no significant battery usage for 30 hours the output voltage is reduced to 13.2 VDC for minimal water usage. When in storage mode, the output voltage will periodically increase to 14.4 VDC to help prevent sulfating of the battery plates.

WARNING
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE FLUID LEVELS OF ANY CONNECTED BATTERY(S) BE CHECKED ON A REGULAR BASIS. ALL BATTERIES WILL “GAS” AND LOSE SOME FLUID WHEN CONTINUOUSLY CONNECTED TO ANY CHARGING SOURCE.

ELECTRICAL

Power Control Center Safety Features
REVERSE BATTERY PROTECTION CIRCUIT – If a battery is accidentally hooked up backward, the converter will be protected. Easily accessible ATC-type fuses will blow when a battery is connected in reverse. Correct battery wiring and replace fuses with the same type and rating. THE DC SECTION – The DC panel features up to 18 fused positions rated for up to 30 amps, depending on the model, for accessories including ten low‐to‐full current-rated branches. These can be used for lower-current devices such as smoke and CO detectors. Each branch has an optional LED to indicate a blow branch fuse.

WARNING
DISCONNECT ALL POWER TO THE CONVERTER PRIOR TO CHECKING OR CHANGING FUSES. FOR CONTINUED PROTECTION AGAINST THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRICAL SHOCK, REPLACE ONLY WITH THE SAME TYPE AND RATING OF FUSE. CONSULT A LICENSED ELECTRICAL OR RV TECHNICIAN FOR ANY NEEDED ASSISTANCE.

Power Control Center Troubleshooting

PROBLEM POSSIBLE CAUSE(S) ACTION
 

 

 

 

 

 

No Output

 

Proper AC power not connected

Connect power supply

Check AC distribution panel for proper operation

 

Reverse battery fuses blown

Check for reverse battery connection

Replace fuses with same type and rating

Short circuit Trace circuits for possible fault
 

Unit has shutdown due to overheating

Check air flow

Allow unit to cool

 

Unit has shutdown due to over voltage

Check input voltage

Correct input voltage

 

 

 

 

Low Output

 

Compartment gets too hot

Check air flow to the converter

Improve ventilation to the compartment

 

Excessive load for converter

Reduce load requirements

Install larger converter

Input voltage not between 105‐130 Volts AC Correct nput supply voltage
Bad battery cells Replace battery
 

 

 

 

 

Intermittent or no output on generator, works on shore power

Unit has shutdown due to over voltage Add another load to the generator, this may reduce the spikes to an acceptable level.
Some generators exhibit excessive voltage spikes on the AC power output, this may cause the over voltage protection to shut the unit down.  

Contact generator manufacturer for possible  defect in the generator

 

Reverse battery fuses blown

Check battery polarity

Replace fuses

 

No battery connection

Check wiring to battery

Check inline fuse

Inverter Overview

The PD1200 Series Inverter is a 120 VAC, 60 Hz, pure sine wave inverter with an integrated transfer switch. It has been robustly designed with safety and protection features for installation in recreational and commercial vehicles. With a built‐in transfer switch, this inverter can switch seamlessly between inverter power and external shore power without any power interruptions. It has been UL certified in both the US and Canada so you can feel comfortable knowing that your inverter is safe.
