Inverter/ChargersSolar Inverters Battery Inverters Inverter/Chargers
Battery inverter/chargers combines the functionality of a DC/AC battery inverter and a battery charger.
Like any inverter, an inverter/charger converts DC (battery) power into AC power but will also charge the attached batteries when an AC power source is present (grid / generator / solar inverter). While AC power is present, the inverter/charger bypasses the batteries (instead of inverting) to increase efficiency.
The inbuilt automatic transfer switch detects when AC power connects or disconnects and switches between charging and inverting mode. The transition between those two stages usually happens in a few milliseconds.
