IC Series Inverter Charger: DC CABLE CONNECTIONS

When installing the battery cable ring lug onto the Inverter/Charger DC terminal and the battery post, do not put anything between the ring lug and the metal surface. Incorrectly installed hardware causes a high resistance connection which could lead to poor Inverter/Charger performance and may melt the cable and term…

IC Series Inverter/Charger: DC WIRE SIZING

The distance between the battery bank and the Inverter/Charger should be as short as possible to achieve maximum efficiency and to reduce fire hazards. The cables should be as short as possible and the overall length of both cables added together should be less than 10 ft (3m) to comply with code requirements. Keeping…

IC Series Inverter/Charger: LOCATION AND ENVIRONMENTAL REQUIREMENTS

The IC Series Inverter/Charger must be installed in a location that meets the following requirements: **1. TEMPERATURE** Make sure the Inverter/Charger is installed in a location where the normal air temperature is between 0 °C and 50 °C. The cooler the better within this range. Note the IC Series maximum output wa…

IC Series Inverter/Charger: AC TERMINAL BLOCK CONNECTIONS

The IC Series has a six-pole AC terminal block and two AC ground terminals to connect the Inverter/Charger’s AC input and output wiring. The terminal block and ground terminals can be accessed by removing the three Phillips screws holding the AC cover plate. Each connection on the AC terminal block is rated to accep…

IC Series Inverter/Charger: DC OVERCURRENT PROTECTION AND DC DISCONNECT

Batteries are capable of providing very large currents in case of a short circuit. If this occurs with no DC overcurrent protection, it will result in overheating and melting of the cables and possibly serious injury and/or fire. DC overcurrent protection is not included with the IC Series. It must be installed betwe…
