How to test the Installation


1. Apply battery power to the inverter by engaging the fuse, switching the breaker on or switching the battery disconnect switch to the ON position. The Inverter/Charger will remain off.

2. Disconnect all AC loads from the breaker panel by switching the main on/off breaker or all individual breakers to the OFF position.

3. Press the ON/OFF button. Verify the inverter turns on and its status indicator shows solid green (ON).

4. Turn the inverter off then connect a 25W light bulb to the inverter output. Verify the light comes on and shines normally when the inverter is switched back on. A dim light will indicate a poor AC output. The exact output can be checked at the remote if installed. The remote should also indicate if the inverter is in Inverting mode by the “INV” symbol in the lower left corner
of the display.

5. Press and release the ON/OFF button to turn the Inverter / Charger off, the bulb will turn off and the status indicator will turn off.

6. Turn the inverter back on. Note: the inverter must be turned on before shore power is applied. Apply AC shore power (utility or generator) to the Inverter/Charger. After around 10 seconds the Inverter / Charger will click and the incoming power will be passed through and the light bulb will turn on. The status indicator on the inverter will be green. The remote should indicate
the inverter is in charge (CHR) mode.

Note: Once shore power is applied the inverter cannot be turned off as it requires power from the inverter to run the pass-through mode to the transfer switch. When shore power is removed the inverter can be turned off.

7. Turn on one AC load at the fuse panel and determine if AC is applied to this circuit. If AC is present slowly turn each load on one by one checking for AC each time.

8. Disconnect the AC shore power, the light bulb and the inverter should remain on. The light is now being powered by the Inverter (battery bank). The light bulb can now be removed and the system re-assembled.

Note: the inverter must be turned on before shore or generator power is applied. Also check the “Shore Power Max” setting on the remote. This will coordinate with the circuit breaker rating from the incoming AC source and ensures any AC loads receive the maximum current available. For example if plugged into 50 amp service set the ”Shore Power Max” Setting to 50 amps.
