Product Description

Tripp Lite's APS2012 DC-to-AC inverter with automatic line-to-battery transfer and integrated charging system serves as an extended run UPS, a standalone power source or an automotive inverter. Supplies up to 2000 watts of continuous 120V AC power from any 12V battery or automotive DC source. OverPower TM inverter output feature temporarily provides up to 150% of the continuous output for 1-60 minutes, and DoubleBoost TM inverter output feature delivers up to 200% of the continuous output for up to 10 seconds, providing the extra power needed to cold start heavy-duty tools and motorized equipment. When hardwire AC input is energized, commercial power passes through to connected equipment and the battery set is recharged via 3 stage, 25/100 amp charging system. In UPS mode, the APS system responds to blackouts and voltage fluctuations with a near instantaneous automatic transfer to battery-derived AC output. Includes a set of high current DC input terminals for simple installation (user supplies batteries and cabling - see owner's manual for recommendations). Passes sine wave utility or generator power during battery charging and UPS line power operation, plus efficient PWM sine wave AC output in inverter and UPS backup modes. Reliable large transformer design, with frequency control powers resistive electronic loads or large inductive motors, compressors and other items with high current needs on startup.

The Tripp Lite APS2012, on the other hand, works great.
John Woods
Not major but not insignificant either... 4. The documentation that comes with the inverter is pretty sparse.
Amazon Customer
Accepts only #2 wire for DC input (Ok if close to battery(s); #10 for AC; really too small for long runs.

We have three of these running as UPS for extended long run. They work great. With a 100AmpH deep cycle battery, it can run three servers for 5 hours. The built-in three stage charger with battery and charge indicators show the status of the battery and inveter. Many adjustment dip switch to select different battery or switching voltage.

When AC lost, it will automatically switch to battery power in about 5 ms, so that computers have no downtime.

The only problem with them is that the float charge phase is always on. When power outage is not that frequent, it could cause battery being overcharged. I had contacted factory to see if we can turn that float charge off or off after certain hours to avoid the battery overcharge. But they told me there is no modification allowed. The result of that is the battery dying in about 18 month to two years.

Still, that is a much better solution than those regular UPS, since the battery in resular UPS can only last 15 minutes. During summer, when we have the rolling black, which lasts about two hours each time, we don't have to shutdown our computers due to power outage.

I bought the first unit in August 2011, it arrived quickly. Easy hook up. I have a bank of 8 - 6volt golf cart batteries. This unit ran for 3 months flawlessly , then just quit.
Triplite Customer service was great and after some trouble shooting, I returned the unit. Cost $56 shipping. They sent me a replacement right away.
I bought another unit from Amazon immediately when this one failed (2day shipping, I now have 2 ) and the second one has ran, again flawlessly, for 4 months. I have a use for the second unit in another building. For the price, this is a good unit.
We use this unit 24/7 to power a 40' travel trailer we live in (@ 6000ft) while building a home. Of course we have to be power conscious, but it serves our needs.
I have had Trace, Heart, and Magnum inverter/chargers. All were bullet proof!!, but a lot more expensive, which is why I chose to try this one. I added the remote monitor to this unit so I don't have to open the compartment to check the state of charge of the batteries. This unit can generate heat when charging so make sure there is adequate ventilation.
All in all , good bang for your buck and excellent customer service. Hope this helped.

Ordered the Tripp Lite APS 2012 to replace 11 year old Exide 2000 inv.charger which got fried with lightning strike.
I was amazed that 2011 technology didn't have a better appearance (yes I saw it online but was still hopeful). Unit is also heavier than the Exide.
The connections leave something to be desired. Accepts only #2 wire for DC input (Ok if close to battery(s); #10 for AC; really too small for long runs.
And. the available adjustments for system control are limited.
The first unit arrived & didn't work properly. Took several calls & explanations to get replacement; + out of pocket shipping back to OEM; but so far it's up and running.
Time will tell.

It works like they say it supposed to.
It is a bit loud with the humm.
After a month of use, my inverter, starts to "lurch" with the power, and kicks the normal power off for just a second. Not sure what is happening, but it is an inconvenience.
when on battery power, things work great.
The humming is always there.

This product is all it was advertised to be. I am most pleased with the ability to monitor the battery charge level and the status of the powerverter. It's UPS qualities are also a plus.

When I added two new servers to my server rack, I was faced with the choice of adding a new fixed capacity UPS for the new servers or replace my older inadequate UPS system with something more capable and expandable. I purchased the Tripp Lite APS750 750W 12V DC to AC Inverter with Automatic Line-to-Battery 20-Amp Charger back in 2010 for use in my camper and have been very pleased with its quality and performance so I decided to purchase it's bigger cousin, the APS2012 2000W inverter for my server room.

Along with the APS2012 2000W, I purchased two Optima Batteries 8052-161 D31M BlueTop Dual Purpose Batterys to string in parallel. Running #2/0 cables between batteries and to the inverter with a Go Power! FBL-300 300 Amp Fuse Class T with Block in-line fuse, I now have the perfect expandable UPS system.

In testing, I found the above combination of two batteries in parallel with the APS2012 2000W, I can power my four servers, routers, switches, and digital phone system for up to 2 and a half to three hours in a power failure. To increase the run time, I need only to add additional batteries. For now, this configuration works very well for my needs.

I bought this to use with back up sump. It works perfectly and appears to be very heavy duty. I called cust. support for wiring question which was answered right away.

I installed this as part of a solar electric system that powers some lights and freezers. It works great for that. Obviously not all the bells and whistles of a solar inverter and this is only modified sine wave not full sine. It works well for most things though. A couple of important points if someone was planning on using it for that purpose.

1. This is modified sine wave. It will run motors and lights and smaller electrical appliances and older televisions even. It wont run newer TVs (I don't know what the cutoff age or technology is - it runs an old CRT type fine. It causes buzzing on a newer LED TV). It wont run UPSes, though it will run some computers and charge laptop batteries.

2. It gives precedence to line power, not batteries. This is easily dealt with if you get a battery monitoring device (or if your charge controller can do it) that can send 12 volts to an auxiliary connection. Then get a solid state relay. You will either need normally open or normally closed. With an Outback 80 it has to be normally closed. Then you can set up an event that opens the relay, which is connected to your line input, when the battery's charge falls below a setpoint. You might be able to start a generator in the same way. I am going to try that soon.

3. At the time I purchased this, Tripplite does not have the battery temperature sensor cable available for purchase. They advertise the functionality but you cant buy the cable. They assure me that it is due for release very soon but this inverter has been available for years so why would they not have the cable? Not major but not insignificant either...

4. The documentation that comes with the inverter is pretty sparse. In particular, there is a low-amp charge setting and a high-amp charge setting.
