This unique 48 volt system is simply superior in design and quality. It’s for those people who want a DIY complete solar system kit they can put on their cabin, house, or trailer to become completely energy independent. Designed to have solar panels and batteries easily added later for even more power.

Component features and specifications outlined below.


This inverter will output 120 or 220/230/240Vac, and it can output 50 or 60Hz via the SW4 switch on the DC side of the product. This means that this inverter works internationally and is operable with nearly any electrical system on the planet!

Built with a 48 volt DC input, this inverter performs with very little power loss. Users receive a notable increase in efficiency in large systems when compared to using 12 or 24 volts, which can be an attractive feature for sustainability lovers looking to live as efficiently as possible.

The most common use for this inverter is emergency backup power in homes, business and recreation locations. You’ll always be prepared for the next power outage with access to 10000 watts of continuous power and 30,000 watts of surge (for up to 20 seconds).

One of the most sought-after features this inverter has is the direct-connect terminal block, which allows users to surpass the 10000 watt capacity and harness its 300% surge power (up to 30,000 watts for 20 seconds as previously stated).

It’s also built to withstand reasonable heat and temperature fluctuations because of its over-temperature protection and dual thermally-controlled fans.  And it’s protected from humidity or dust and dirt by virtue of its marine-coated or “conformal-coated” boards. This inverter provides the reliability needed in any business or residential emergency backup power applications.

16 batteries with a capacity of 120 amp hr each.. These are no maintenance batteries. They don't leak liquid, gas nor do they need to be vented. The only requirement is that they need to be charged regularly in order to maintain cell integrity of the battery. Charging every three to four weeks is recommended. Failure to ensure a high enough voltage, through consistent charging, will result in cell degradation which causes irreparable damage to the battery.
