Inverter - 1800/3000 Watts


Tripp Lite PowerVerter Ultra Compact Inverters
Permanent Mount & Portable DC-to-AC Inverters

Ultra Compact PowerVerters pack reliable inverter technology into a durable, lightweight extruded aluminum housing small enough to take anywhere. The result is an AC power source you can move easily from vehicle to vehicle, wherever you need to use your equipment.

Ideal for Computer Equipment

Ultra Compact PowerVerters are simple to connect and integrate a host of sophisticated features to ensure that connected electronic equipment receives a constant, safe AC current. The frequency- controlled, computer-grade power they provide is less likely to damage sensitive electronics than the unpredictable output of a generator, making them ideal for use with mobile uplinks and other computer equipment in a vehicle.

Portable and Permanent Mount Models

Designed with the needs of the mobile executive in mind, the smallest PowerVerter models (PV 140 and 300) fit easily in a briefcase with a laptop computer. They feature cigarette lighter input plugs for simple connection and disconnection to a vehicle's dashboard. The midrange PV 500 can be stored under a seat or in a glove compartment when not in use, and features quick-connect battery clips. The most powerful PowerVerter Ultra Compact models (PV 1000HF and PV 1800HF) have permanent mounting brackets and hardwired battery connections, making them ideal for use with house battery arrays in RVs, trailers and boats.  DC battery cables and protective fuse can be purchased separately.  See SK-200.
