Product Description

Are you tired of filling heavy gas cans? Are you looking for a clean, reliable alternative to a portable generator? The PV3000HF PowerVerter® Compact Inverter is the solution you seek! The PV3000HF powers the equipment you commonly use at home or work—power tools, portable lighting, notebook computers and more—wherever life takes you. It’s the ideal power solution for RVs, commercial and fleet vehicles, emergency vehicles, remote sites and any other application that requires a clean, quiet AC power source. The PV3000HF efficiently converts DC (battery) power into 120V AC (household) power to run any type of equipment, from power tools to computers. And unlike portable generators, the PV3000HF requires no fuel and produces no noise or fumes. With its 3000-watt capacity and 4 AC outlets, this inverter can power multiple items of equipment with ease. The PV3000HF can also deliver up to 6000 watts instantaneously to support power-hungry equipment start-ups. The PV3000HF comes with a free Remote Control Module (Tripp Lite model APSRM4) and a 25-ft. cable, enabling you to control the inverter from anywhere inside your vehicle.

Computer-Grade Output Power

Key Features

Computer-Grade Output Power

Computer-Grade Output Power
The PV3000HF efficiently converts DC power from a vehicle battery into 120V AC power for any type of equipment, from heavy-duty drills, saws and pumps to computers and sensitive monitoring equipment. The PV3000HF provides safe, stable, AC output power to help connected equipment perform at its peak. A frequency control feature ensures that devices dependent on tightly regulated AC line frequency, such as computers, VCRs and DVD/CD players, receive clean, computer-grade power.

Extended Peak Surge Power
Many tools, appliances and printers require extra power for start-up. The PV3000HF accommodates these peak surge demands by providing up to 200% more output power than its continuous rating, delivering 6000 watts for up to 10 seconds to support power-hungry equipment start-ups and motor cycling requirements.

Diagnostic LEDs
The PV3000HF features 2 sets of diagnostic LEDs. 3 battery charge level LEDs indicate the approximate charge level (high/medium/low) of connected batteries. 3 connected load level LEDs indicate the approximate wattage load level (high/medium/low) of connected equipment.

Advanced Monitoring and Control

Automatic Overload Shutdown
To prevent damage to the inverter and connected equipment, the PV3000HF will shut down automatically if an overload is detected at the inverter outlets. The red Load Level Indicator LED will flash to alert you that an overload has occurred.

Efficient and Safe for Batteries
With its 94% efficiency rating, the PV3000HF maximizes battery performance to run connected equipment longer. It also features a Load Sense (battery charge conservation) setting to prevent overtaxing your batteries. An automatic low-battery shutdown feature ensures you’ll always have sufficient battery power available to start your vehicle.

Rugged Construction
The PV3000HF features an all-metal housing that’s built to withstand vibration and impact—ideal for use at remote worksites, in trucks, RVs and other vehicles, on boats or anywhere that reliable AC power is needed. The housing is constructed with a grooved surface to promote more efficient cooling.

Simple Installation and Equipment Connection

Simple Installation and Equipment Connection
The PV3000HF features integral mounting flanges for safe, permanent installation on any rigid, horizontal surface, such as the bed of a pickup truck. Connecting the PV3000HF to your battery system is quick and easy with readily available user-supplied cables. AC power is provided to connected equipment via 4 AC receptacles on the front of the unit. The PV3000HF is also equipped with an RJ45 remote control jack. When used with the included 25-ft. cable and Remote Control LED/Switch Module (Tripp Lite model APSRM4), this jack enables you to control and monitor the inverter from virtually anywhere within a vehicle.

One-Year Warranty and Environmentally Responsible Design

One-Year Warranty and Environmentally Responsible Design

5 out of 5 eggsTripp Lite PV3000HF - perfect

Pros: Easy to install, was a complete kit to adapt to almost any installation and came with a remote control panel and labels.

Cons: According to install instructions, has to be installed horizontally and I did not see that in the specs/details on websites. Had planned to install vertically on a bulkhead next to another inverter. Luckily was able to make a raised platform to accommodate a horizontal install.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Inverter

Pros: This inverter took everything I could throw at it... Until it failed. And I have every intention of replacing it with the same model. I powered multiple power tools with it at the same time, and it didn't even struggle. I even powered a 33' Class A motor home off of it and to test the load, I turned on the A/C's in the RV and it was greater then 66% load, kicked the fans on and kept on going.

It fits perfectly in my 05' Ram 3500 Quad-Cab on the floor between the Driver and Passenger. I have about 1/2" clearance between my cup holders and the inverter and its within arms reach so I can turn it on or off anytime!

Cons: It's pricey, but justifiably so.

Other Thoughts: The Inverter failed when it was connected to an RV and the deep cell charging system was being serviced. It was my fault and I inadvertently grounded out the inverter. It tried to provide the infinite amount of amperage my mistake was asking for and before the circuit breakers could trip, I blew out a transistor inside. Like I said, Totally my fault and I have every intention of replacing with the same make and model!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat power

Pros: This unit worked flawlessly, thermally controlled fans were silent (couldn't even generate a big enough load to kick them on), battery and load capacity indicators were seemingly accurate, the free remote that came with it proved very convenient to monitor capacity from a tent, and the overload control works as expected. I powered a dual-element heated blanket and a crock-pot and the load indicator didn't waver at all. I suspect this inverter will perform well under a much heavier load... Next up is a 60" lcd and a mini-fridge for tailgating purposes.

The construction is very sturdy but keep in mind this is a large unit that you will have a difficult time hiding if the application isn't an RV or semi (or you don't have a battery within 4' of a mounting spot). I had planned on permanently installing this in my '07 Dodge Ram QC 1500 until I saw the size of it (and the size of the 0 gauge cabling to hook it up).

Cons: None that I can think of, it is large but I can't compare its size against other inverters with similar ratings.

Other Thoughts: If you cable this inverter properly (and you want to since this can draw enough to weld with) you will end up spending a pretty penny on cabling. I got 2 4' sections of 0 gauge cable for +/- battery leads, 4 feet of 4 gauge for earth ground (yes, 2 grounds), and a heavy-duty JL Audio fuse block to hook this up which will run around $150 at most car-audio shops. Not a con in any way but something to think about if you're going to get a high-output inverter like this.
