Looking good! 2000 watts at 120 volts of pure sine-wave power!
So YESTERDAY I tore apart my old solar/ inverter system on the back porch that died eons ago.I got the inverter to batteries monster wires,and monster fuse,unhooked and cleaned up.
Today I cleaned up the solar powered battery bank and hooked up the Xantrex Prowatt SW-2000 watt pure sinewave inverter.Makes cleaner power than Edison does.
It will convert my 12 volt battery power to 120 volts for household stuff.Very cool,hit the power button and the LED readout starts at 000,4.8,9.6,12,13.4 volts real fast,display holds at 13.4 (Full charge on 12 volt batteries) and away we go.When you unplug from it,readout is 000.Draws 300 milliamps (mA) on standby,thats nice. I will keep it fully turned off though when not is use.MAJOR league cool!THAT THING IS NICE,they are $410.00 on amazon currently.
They are doing a lot of work on the power here,plus the winter outages.....I can run the inverter for shorter outages,if its multi day outage I will fire up the Honda EU-2000 generator.Also at night I will run inverter for lights and computers,no genny nonsense,nice and quiet.Guess Im set!
