awareness of the hazards involved in performing electrical work and how to reduce those PROWatt SW Inverter NAbook Page 6 Wednesday August 5 2009 224 PM97505290101Battery type and battery size strongly affect the performance of the PROwatt SW Inverter Therefore you need to identify the type of loads your inverter will be powering and how much you will be using them between charges Once you know how much power you will be using you can determine how much battery capacity you need Xantrex recommends that you purchase as much battery capacity as possibleDetermine A Charging SystemThe charging system must be appropriate for your particular installation A welldesigned charging system will ensure that power is available when you need it and that your batteries remain in top condition Inadequate charging will degrade system performance and the wrong type of charger will reduce battery lifeFor a list of Xantrex Battery Chargers go to wwwxantrexcom or contact Customer Service see Contact Information on page i of this guideCAUTION Risk of inverter damageThe PROwatt SW Inverter must only be connected to a battery that has a nominal output of 12 volts The PROwatt SW Inverter willNot operate if connected to a 6 volt battery andBe damaged if connected to a 24 volt batteryCAUTION Risk of inverter damageThe PROwatt SW Inverter contains components that tend to produce arcs or sparks To prevent fire or explosion do not install the inverter in compartments containing batteries or flammable materials or in locations that require ignitionprotected equipmentWARNING Risk of electrical shockDo not install the PROwatt SW Inverter in a wet environment or in any other environment where moisture can occur and enter the inverter enclosure through the ventilation openings This

2009 224 PM97505290101Connect the Chassis GroundThe PROwatt SW Inverter has a screw terminal labeled CHASSIS GND on the outside of the rear panel as shown in Figure 3 PROwatt SW Inverter Back Panel PROwatt SW 600 shownn Follow the guidelines below to connect the inverters chassis to the groundGrounding LocationsThe chassis ground terminal must be connected to a grounding point The grounding point varies depending on where you install the PROwatt SW Inverter Follow the guidelines that correspond to your type of installationTo operate safely and effectively the PROwatt SW Inverter needs proper DC cables and DCrated fusesthe PROwatt SW Inverter has lowvoltage and highcurrent input lowresistance wiring between the battery and the inverter is essential to deliver the maximum amount of usable energy to your load WARNING Risk of electrical shockNever operate the PROwatt SW Inverter without connecting it to the ground Electrical shock hazard could resultRecreational VehicleConnect the CHASSIS GND screw to the vehicles chassis using a minimum 8 AWG copper wire preferably with greenyellow insulationFixed LocationConnect the CHASSIS GND screw to your systems DC grounding point using a minimum 6 AWG wire The systems grounding point is usually the AC service entrance grounding point or a separate ground rod For a solar PV photovoltaicinstallation this is usually the same rod used to ground the PV arrayaXantrex recommends that the grounding conductor grounding wireshould be the same wiresize as the DC cablesImportantUse of a qualified installer strongly recommendedPROWatt SW Inverter NAbook Page 9 Wednesday August 5 2009 224 PM10Xantrex PROwatt SW Sine Wave Inverter Owners GuideCabling GuidelinesFollow these guidelines and refer to Table 1 Voltage Drop Per Foot of DC Cable on page 10 to determine battery cable lengthsUse 4 AWG copper 90 C insulation ratingas the smallest battery cable size This will minimize the voltage drop between the battery and the inverter If the cables cause an excessive voltage drop the inverter may shut down when drawing higher currents because the voltage at the inverter in105 voltsKeep all cables as short as possible and ensure that each cable between the inverter and the battery is no longer than 6feet 18mHave all wires and cables teappropriatelysized connectors and have the connectors crimped at the place of purchaseDo not use aluminum It has about 13 more resistance than copper cable of the same size and it is difficult to make good lowresistance connections to aluminum wire Xantrex recommends a size 0 cable with a maximum cable length of 6feet 18mFor exampleVoltage Drop per foot Current value Resistance valueSo for a 600W inverter output with a DC cable of size 0 multiply the maximum current of 60A with 0000100 The result is 000600 voltage drop per feet If the cable is 6feet long the total voltage drop is 000600 6 2 0072 Cable length multiplied by 2So for a battery operating at 126V at battery terminal the

withstand the shortcircuit cuTo select the correct fuse type and size1Determine the total cold cranking amp rating for your batterys The cold cranking amp rating of each battery is displayed on the battery case If it is not contact the battery manufacturer to find outFor exampleIf you are using one battery to power your inverter and its rating is 500 the total cold cranking amp rating is 500If you are powering your inverter with two batteries in parallel and each has a rating of 500 thcranking amp rating is 10002Once you have determined the total cold cranking amp rating of your batteries identify the corresponding Ampere Interrupting Capacity AIC the fuse or breaker required for your system by referring to Table 2 The AIC is the amount of battery shortcircuit amperage that the fuse can safely withstandIf the Total Cold Cranking Amps indicate that the AIC is 2700 amps or less see Table 3 for the correct ANL fuseIf the Total Cold Cranking Amps indicate that the AIC is up to 200000

will operate many AC loads within its power rating However some appliances and equipment may be difficult to operate Please see Exceptional Loads below carefullyA lot of USBpowered devices such as portable music MP3players mobile phones and video game players can be charged and powered safely via the standard USB port However some devices such as portable GPS receivers and certain cameras may not work and even cause damage even if you use the USB cable that came with the product Be sure that the device only accepts 5volts and can be charged or powered using other sources of power See the devices owners guide under specifications for informationSome induction motors used in freezers pumps and other motoroperated equipment need high surge SW Inverter may not be able to start some of these motors even though their rated current draw is within the inverters limitsIf a motor refuses to start observe the VOLTS indicator while you are trying to start the motor If the indicator drops below 11 volts while the PROwatt SW Inverter is trying to start the motor this may explain why the motor wont start Make sure the length and diameter of the battery cables are appropriate Check that the battery connections are good and that the battery is fully charged If the cables are sized correctly the connections are good and the battery is charged but the voltage still drops below 11 volts

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
