E-News Issue #15

23 December 1998

Seasons Greetings to all of you. Thank you very much for your business during the past year. It is very much appreciated.

We will remain open over the Christmas holidays (except public holidays), with a skeleton staff. This includes our service/repair department. If you phone and don't get an answer, try again in half an hour as there will be periods without a receptionist. If you send anything (an order, cheque or repair job) clearly indicate your account name, and delivery address as I won't be here to oversee this sort of detail. What is obvious to you and me may not be so obvious to one of our relief staff.

Until 15 January '99, we will only be checking and responding to our email once or twice a week. If you require an urgent response, we suggest you call us up or send a fax.

Bob from Thursday Island let us know that the Daewoo DTC-14QITX television consumes 39W (230V). It is 34cm in size, has Teletext and was only $290. Sounds like an efficient bargain to me! We have since seen the 51cm model which is rated at 79W.

Selectronic are about to release the SE22 inverter in mid December. It comes as a dual voltage package, as per the SA21, enabling the upgrading of a system with an increase in power, from 12V to 24V, when the need arises or when finances allow...without changing inverters. On 12V it is rated at 1300W and on 24V it is rated at 1600W.

For those who may not need the superb system control provided by the Energy Management facility incorporated in the SA sine wave range of inverters, the SE22 is the answer.

Features include a back lit liquid crystal display panel which allows adjustment of the important parameters of the inverter plus valuable information about thesystem, alarm history logging, impressive surge ratings, 4000W @ 12V and 5000W @ 24V all at 40 degrees ambient, and "C" tick approval. As circumstances and requirements change, the SE22 can be upgraded to the Energy Management Mk 2 option.

Features included in this option are...

  • Four control outputs.
  • Replacement of interface board with covered plug-in screw terminals.
  • Fully adjustable Solar regulator controller option.
  • Automatic zero point setting for percentage change in battery.
  • Automatic battery efficiency compensation.
  • Modem interface output for remote control of inverter and system via modem & remote computer.

Once again, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you.

Cheers from Dave and all the RPC crew.

Dave Lambert (Director)

We are Open for Business

Goods will be dispatched via Australia Post and couriers; additional safety precautions for goods handling have been put in place.

Our show room is currently closed, however, appointments can be made by phone so we can prepare orders for pick up from our premises.
