Questions & Answers for NPower Portable Digital Inverter - 3000 Watts

Question

Battery Banks for inverter

I have a 3000 w inverter with 2 batteries hooked up behind each side of the inverter in parallel. One set of cables to each bank. Should the last 2 batteries in line also be hooked together to form a loop? I am charging off of a 45 watt solar panel, but I still am not able to run the refrigerator in the RV

It is likely that the starting amps of the refrigerator exceeds the capacity of the inverter. If so, hooking up more batteries will not help.

When attaching the 12 volt batteries to this NPower inverter they need to be in parallel, if the voltage from the battery drops below approximately 10.5 Volts the inverter will automatically shutdown.

It sounds to me that you may need more solar panels to charge the batteries at a faster rate, please see some of the solar panels we offer listed below...

Also, be sure to check the wattage requirements on the refrigerator and try running it by itself with no other appliances attached.

This digital inverter can be mounted on its side. You must leave at least 2” (5cm) of clearance around the unit for airflow. Also, ensure that the ventilation openings are not obstructed.

This inverter is intended to be installed within 2-3 feet of the battery. It can be mounted outside if protected from the elements and still ventilated for proper heat dissipation.

To determine the required wattage to operate a given item, the formula is volts x amps= watts. So multiplying 5.5a x 120v= 660w. The wattage requirement of the item in question is approximately 660 watts. This inverter will easily handle that load.

This inverter is modified sinewave. Although this item supplies clean enough current for most electronic devices I would suggest using a pure sinewave inverter for especially sensitive equipment.

This item can be connected to a single battery or battery bank. Connecting this inverter to two separate battery banks at the same time would essentially create a larger battery bank. When connecting this inverter to multiple batteries, be sure to wire the batteries in parallel to ensure that you are creating a 12 volt system. Wiring batteries in series will cause higher voltage that may damage the inverter.

Question

Why are there two sets of hook ups on the back of the inverter

It looks like there are two sets of DC connections on the back of this unit. The manual doesn't say anything about this having two inputs or what they are for. Can you please tell me what they are for. Thanks.

NPower Expert
There are two sets of Dc inputs on this inverter because multiple sets of wiring are needed if the load on the inverter is over 1000 Watts.

Per page 3 of the owners manual: If connected with loads of over 1000 W, two sets of same size wiring must be connected to the same battery or the connected battery kit. It may damage the inverter if using one set of wiring only or connecting two sets of wiring to different batteries separately!
