12V/24V IBS Ultra Sine Inverter 1600W/230V/50Hz

The small and very light (5.5kg) power inverter has been designed to handle appliances with high surge demand up to 4.5kW.

Various protection circuits (short circuit, under and over voltage, overload, surge control (DSC) and overheating) will guarantee best functionality.

Galvanic insulation between battery and AC-output offers safe operation.

If no appliances are attached the inverter returns after a time delay to the power saving stand-by mode.

The optional remote control (RP03, to be used with US40/US80/US160) makes the control of the inverter easy and convenient. We recommend using batteries with a capacity of 150Ah or more to back up the inverter sufficient.

4 new aluminium mounting feet make installation easy and secure.

Inverter Applications:

  • 4WD, service and emergency vehicles, police, mobile homes,
  • mountain huts, telecom stations, coaches. 

The lightweight and compact IBS inverter of the corresponding output class are able to operate a large number of applications (see table 'Ultra Sine Inverter "). Please apply the recommended battery capacity to achieve the maximum efficiency observed.
