    • EXTENSION CORDS. Make sure your extension cord is in good condition. When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current your product will draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating. The accompanying table shows the correct size to use depending on cord length and nameplate ampere rating.

  • Page 5: Principle Of Operation

    • High-input voltage shutdown (activates at above 15.5 volts DC) MAXX SST™ uses a 12 volt DC power source like those found in motor vehicles, or it can be operated using multiple battery configurations with commercial battery chargers or solar battery chargers. For most heavy-duty applications, a multiple battery configuration and the use of deep-cycle batteries is required.
  • Page 6: Appliance Power Consumption

    MODIFIED SINE WAVE SINE WAVE APPLIANCE POWER CONSUMPTION MAXX SST™ inverters are ideal for powering: • Lights • TVs and TV/DVD (VCR) combinations units • Radio receivers/transceivers and stereo systems • Computers and peripheral equipment • Refrigerator/freezers • Small microwave ovens •...
  • Page 7: Power Source Requirements

    Inductive loads, such as TVs and stereos, require more current to operate than do resistive loads with the same wattage rating. Induction motors, as well as some TVs, may require two to six times their rated wattage to start up. Because the MAXX SST™ inverters have a peak watt power rating, many such appliances and tools may be...
  • Page 8: Determining Battery Size

    “Specifications” section of this Instruction Manual. Determining Battery Size To determine the minimum battery size you will need to operate appliances from MAXX SST™ inverters, follow these steps: 1. Determine the wattage of each appliance and/or tool you will need to simultaneously operate from the inverter.
  • Page 9: Installation

    Manufacturing for testing and repair by professional factory technicians. INSTALLATION MAXX SST™ inverters will provide you with continuous electrical power when powered by a 12 volt DC source, such as a vehicle battery or a multiple battery configuration (see the diagram under “Battery Configuration,”...
  • Page 10: Marine Applications

    • NEVER place items on or over the inverter during operation. MAXX SST™ inverters generate heat during operation and must be placed where cool air can circulate to the internal fan, and hot air can be removed.
  • Page 11: Permanent Installation

    Permanent Installation For permanent installation to heavy-duty battery power you will need: • Two cables (as indicated in the “Specifications” section) • Terminals to fit cable ends and stud terminals to inverter • Hardware and battery connector to connect cables to the battery bank •...

    13. Connect the stripped, soldered (longer) end of the positive (+) cable to the red stud marked (+) on the inverter and tighten the retaining nut. 14. Connect the stripped, soldered end of the negative (–) cable to the black stud marked (–) on the inverter and tighten the retaining nut.
  • Page 13: Troubleshooting

    TROUBLESHOOTING Common Audio/Visual Problems Problem Solution “Buzzing” sound in audio Some inexpensive stereo systems and “boom boxes” emit a buzzing sound from systems their speakers when operated from the Power Inverter. This occurs because the power supply in the electronic device does not adequately filter the modified sine wave produced by the inverter.
  • Page 14: Care And Maintenance

    CARE AND MAINTENANCE Storage 1. Ideal storage temperature range is 50-68°F (10-20°C). 2. Store and use the inverter in a cool, dry place with adequate ventilation. 3. Avoid locations that are exposed to heating units, radiators, direct sunlight or excessive humidity or dampness.
