DC to AC 1500 Watt Power Inverter

Product Overview

Leaving the comforts of home behind is a big part of being a driver. However, Purkeys’ 1500 watt DC to AC Power Inverter helps drivers feel more at home.

Purkeys’ power inverter changes 12 VDC to 110 VAC power in the tractor for common household uses like cooking devices and computers.

Purkeys’ power inverters use a programmable Low Voltage Disconnect (LVD) to ensure the inverter shuts off before the tractor batteries discharge too deeply.

What is an Inverter?

An inverter is a device that converts direct current into alternating current, which is needed to run AC electrical appliances.

What size inverter do I need?

This depends on the appliances you want to operate on the inverter. The wattage of the appliance can usually be found somewhere on the device. If this value is available, add the wattages together and use the total as a guide for determining what size inverter is needed. If the appliance wattage is unknown, a tool known as a Kill-a-Watt, made by P3 International, can be used to measure the appliance wattage. The Kill-a-Watt is an affordable tool that is available through Purkeys. Visit http://purkeys.net/measuring-energy-consumption-from-ac-powered-devices-in-your-tractor/ for further details.

What makes a Purkeys’ Inverter different from other inverters?

The power needed to operate appliances comes from the vehicle batteries and charging system. The Purkeys Inverter is equipped with DynaBalance technology, which maintains a balance between the vehicle electrical system and the driver’s power needs. It provides this balance by using a programmable Low Voltage Disconnect or a timer function that can be customized to fit the needs of a fleet or truck driver.

How long does it take to install an inverter, and is special training required?

No special training is required. All required parts and components are supplied with easy-to-follow installation instructions. A technician with basic hand tools can complete an installation in less than one hour.
