Automatic Transfer Relay
The PCL inverter chargers are equipped with a 30A transfer relay switch that switches between Inverter and Standby mode depending on the availability of AC input power. If AC is present, the transfer relay bypasses up to 30A of the incoming AC power through the inverter to power the AC loads on the inverter’s output. In the event AC power gets disconnected, the inverter will power the loads through the battery bank.

Auto Generator Start
The PCL inverter charger series have functions to automatically start and stop a generator for supplementing charge. The Auto Generator feature starts the Generator with the use of Normally Closed (NC) contacts of the relay that “opens” when the battery voltage drops to the programmed value of Program 96, Low Battery Voltage Set‐point. The Normally Open (NO) relay “closes”, and the auto generator start commencing the generator to start charging the battery bank. When the battery is recharged and its voltage rises to the programmed value of Program 95, High Battery Voltage Set‐point The NC (closes) contacts and NO (open) contacts of relay reset and the Generator will stop / shut down the Generator automatically. The PCL unit will then transfer back to “Inverting Mode”.
Note: While the generator is connected, the unit now operates in “Charging Mode” with the AC power from the Generator charging the batteries as well as providing power to the
Upon successful connection of a 12V deep cycle battery bank, flip the inverter power to the ON position.
