Rugged 1.8kVA AC Inverter with Li-ion battery charger
Phihong has released a compact, portable 1.8kVA inverter with an integral battery charger designed with four standard Li-ion battery packs. Designed to provide original equipment manufacturers with reliable, energy-efficient, and cost-effective power solutions, the new inverter is engineered to deliver 120Vac at 16A/1.8kVA (continuous) for operating power tools, and features a 40A peak current for motor start applications.
When fully charged, the inverter’s four standard 20V/5Ah battery packs deliver a run-time of ~25 minutes at 1.8kVA, or up to 20 hours at lighter loads or with larger battery packs.
“The rugged, compact design of our newest inverter makes it ideal for both indoor and outdoor use for power tool operation where AC power is not readily available,” said Keith Hopwood, vice president of marketing for Phihong USA.”
The new inverters are compliant with FCC Class B radiated and conducted emissions, and with the International Electromechanical Commission (IEC) 61000 standards for lighting surge, ESD, brownout, and radiated susceptibility.
The 1.8kVA inverters feature over-temperature, over-voltage, and over-load protections, and are certified to cUL safety specifications. The rugged design also withstands a three-time, 1m “drop test” onto concrete.
The 1.8kVA inverter measures 19” x 10” x 6” (L x W x H) and weighs 17.5lb without batteries. Allowable operating temperatures for the inverter span -20ºC to +50ºC.
