Samlex SAM-1500C-12 Modified Sine 1500w Inverter + Charger

Product Description

Model: SAM-1500C-12

This all-in-one robust unit integrates a 1500W Modified Sine Wave Inverter, 30A Transfer Switch and a Two Stage 12V, 15 Amp Battery Charger. The transfer switch automatically detects utility or generator power and seamlessly transitions to your battery bank when grid power is unavailable. Also provides safe and rapid charging of 12V battery bank when gird power is available.
