The East SM1612 is a 12 Volt, 1600 Watt constant output (4800 Watt surge output) pure sine wave Inverter-Charger and UPS system.
The SM1612 consists of a pure sine wave inverter with a powerful and configurable built in smart charger. When connected to a 12V battery (or batteries) the SM1612 will charge the battery when mains power is available and draw power from the battery to supply attached appliances when mains power is not available. This makes it an ideal choice for boats, RVs and caravans, but also in static situations where vital equipment needs to be kept running and mains power is not 100% reliable (which is everywhere really).
The East SM1612 can also be used as a UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply) for computers and other instant switch equipment. Once the power goes off the SM1612 instantly switches to supplying any connected appliances.
The SM1612 will run at up to 1600W for as long as there is power in the connected batteries and for a short period it can manage a start up surge of up to 4800W. This is to account for the start-up surge that you can get with some industrial equipment.
The output is pure sine wave, this is the same sine wave that you get from the mains. This means that the East SM1612 can power anything, including items with power correction capacitors in them (these items cannot be used with modified sine wave inverters). So, the SM1612 is fine for anything including AV equipment, fluorescent lighting, power tool fast chargers, fridges, freezers, heating equipment etc.
The East SM1612 does not even need to be connected the mains, it will also work from a generator.
The charger unit is adjustable and depending upon the type and number of 12V batteries you have connected can be set to charge at a range of ampage between 10 Amps and 60 Amps. There are three charging stages (bulk, boost and float) depending upon the charge state of the batteries.
The SM1612 needs to be kept in a dry well ventilated environment as it is fan cooled.
Please see our video, it shows a smaller different version of the East UPS, but it will give you an idea of how they work.
