pure sine wave inverter

This 12V inverter, with built-in transfer switch, changes DC output from your RV batteries into AC power and sends it to the electrical system. Using pure sine wave technology, it creates clean power with low distortion, making it safe, efficient, and perfect for sensitive electronics like computers. The inverter can generate 2,000 starting watts and 1,000 running watts which is a great fit for appliances and electronics. Additionally, with the integrated transfer switch, it will automatically change from inverter to shore power when available.


Functions and Features

pure sine wave inverter terminals

To connect your AC loads, the inverter includes hardwired input and output terminals. It also has positive and negative DC input terminals that connect to your batteries. Lastly, there is a port for the included fixed-mount remote.


The system includes a number of safety features. It has a reverse polarity protection that will protect the converter if the battery is hooked up incorrectly. Additionally, the unit includes protection for overvoltage, undervoltage, and overloading which can damage your equipment, as well as the converter. The built-in cooling fan also removes excess heat from the unit. The fan speed is proportional to the internal temperature on the converter, so when the power demand is low, the fan will operate quietly. For additional safety, installing a 200-amp fuse (sold separately) between the battery bank and the inverter will protect your equipment from power surges.


Built-In Transfer Switch Automatically Switches to Shore Power

The integrated transfer switch selects the primary source of AC current. This switch has been pre-wired to automatically change from inverter to shore power to conserve battery life. It includes a 15-amp leg rated at 100V. Additionally, since the switch only accepts one active source, it protects your electrical system from dangerous backfeed that can damage your equipment.


Fixed-Mount Remote Provides Easy Monitoring and Control

fixed-mount remote

The fixed-mount remote lets you monitor and control the inverter from inside your RV. It includes a digital display that shows voltage, output power, error codes, and a low battery indicator. It also has a power button to turn the inverter on and off.


How It Installs

The inverter mounts inside your RV in a dry location with ventilation. It should be installed close to the battery bank, but not in the same compartment.


dc battery terminals

The DC terminals are wired to the battery bank.


There are several ways to connect the inverter to your RV's electrical system, but this will depend on your rig and how you want to use your inverter.

Video Transcript for Review of Progressive Dynamics RV Inverters - Pure Sine Wave Inverter - PD1210NR

Today we're taking a look at the Progressive Dynamics PD 1200 Series Intelli-Power Inverter with Remote. Now this is a pure Sine Wave Power Inverter that offers AC power for your portable electronic equipment. It features a built in transfer switch that allows you to transfer the power source from you vehicle's battery to shore or generator power.It features integrated features to help ensure long term reliability such as high voltage and low voltage protections to prevent damage from AC input voltage fluctuations. Reverse battery protection, which prevents system damage if connections are accidentally reversed. Overload protection, prevents damage by automatically shutting down the system if the rated output power is exceeded. It also has short circuit protection, which shuts down the system if it detects any large current spikes to prevent damage.

Over temperature protection prevents damage due to excessive heat, and it features a variable speed intelligent cooling fan that only operates under high conditions.It also comes with your remote control, this lets you turn the inverter on and off, and monitor battery voltage, and power consumption. It comes with the 25 foot long connection cable, so it's functional up to about 25 feet away. The unit is a simple installation with easy pull out power connection points. There's only one tool required for installation, that's a hex key, not included. And then this right here would mount to an accessible location, and it would attach with two mounting screws, not included but two mount holes right here.This remote measures about two and three quarter inches by four inches.

Mount holes are separated on center by three and three eighths inches. And then this area back here, your little box measures around two and three quarter by about two inches. And that's three quarters of an inch deep. So you'll need to have that installation area cut out, so that way you can have this as a flush mount install. And then you'll need enough room here at the back to plug in your communication cable.

But your remote's included so that's a really nice feature of the unit.Product is UL listed, it's assembled in the USA. When it comes to the dimensions, it's about eleven and five eighths inches long, by about ten and five eighths inches wide, four inches deep. Again, connection cable is 25 feet long, so on the unit itself, you have the port for the cable, you have the display which is incidental to what's visible on the remote, so you can view your data directly on the inverter itself.You have your select button, on and off button, and it's the same thing right here on your remote display. The product itself is only about seven pounds. Input voltage is 12 volt DC, output voltage is 120 volt AC.

Transfer voltage is 100 volt AC wattage. Output power continuous is 1,000 watts. Output power peak is 2,000 watts, and frequency is 60 hertz. That's gonna do it for today's look at the Progressive Dynamics PD 1200 Series Intelli-Power Inverter with Remote.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Inverters


Works as advertised. I can charge two 100 AH LiFePo-4 batteries with no trouble at all. Just make sure you use decent gauge wire because this charger is a beast! Smaller gauged wire will heat up due to the amount of current this thing delivers. It does constant current charging and then switches to constant voltage to top off the battery. Well worth the money!

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Inverters


Worked perfect with my four 100 AH Lithium batteries.... Stock Winnebago charger was a weak 30 amps @ 13.2 V.....this baby delivers 80 amps @ 14.4 V. which reduces generator runtime on cloudy days when the roof solar is not producing. Had to change the 15 amp RV panel breaker to 20 amps...no big deal...I'm happy with this purchase.

Install instructions were easy to follow. Worked perfectly for my airstream renovation. Small size and ability to mount sideways allowed me to put under my front bench seat and not take up valuable closet space.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Inverters


This power center was easy to install and seems to be working well. However, the wiring diagram on the back of it is small and difficult to read. Maybe I am missing it, but there does not seem to be a buss to connect negative 12v wires to. I think I will have to purchase one separately and install it behind the cabinet the power center is attached to.


Comments
Thank you for your review. I have some installation instructions that should help you. Please note that troubleshooting this electrical unit should be done by a professional. https:www.progressivedyn.comwp-contentuploads201705PD4045-TROUBLESHOOTING.pdf https:www.progressivedyn.comwp-contentuploadsSupportmanuals110145-English.pdf

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Inverters


Cooked my OEM converter on my new 5er due to home electrical install polarity error. Fixed the pedestal but converter is done. Researched replacement models and chose the PD9260C due to good reviews, the 3 prong corded plug (I'm not ready for direct panel wiring yet) and the ability to upgrade to AGM batteries. Received in 3 days. Pros: Very easy to install - basically a drop in replacement. No issues, only extras needed was an 8 ga copper ground jumper wire and oversized wire nut. Started up immediately, battery showing 13.49VDC consistently. Cons: 1) Not packed very well, minimal amount of crumpled paper as padding, no internal packaging box. Shipped by USPS. I have chronic issues with USPS and packages as they refuse to leave at door and (literally) drop them on the ground in front of my mailbox. I was waiting for a quick delivery and got to it right away but a bottom attachment flange was dented - fixed with my Leatherman. I hate USPS. 2) Unit shipped bare - no internal box, no papers included with unit. Is it truly new? Returned and refurbished? Who knows. 3) The link to the installation manual on the product page (not that you need one) has consistently returned a 404 error - you'd think they'd monitor broken links better.


Comments
Thank you for your review and I apologize about the annoying details in your order. Customer Service will be reaching out about the dented flange. As for the instruction link, sometimes the manufacturer changes something on their website without letting us know and the link becomes broken. It is showing up now: https:www.progressivedyn.comwp-contentuploads201705109821F-english.pdf

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Inverters


So far so good! I build my own power center modeled after the ones in RV for our enclosed trailer. Its been working great. I bought fuses at the auto parts store, and bought circuit breakers at home depot no problem. I did contact progressive dynamics because it seems that there are places you can buy these cheap but the serial number is not recognized by progressive dynamics meaning you have no warranty and probably cant return it to those places. But since etrailer was not listed on progressive dynamics website as a retailer, I contacted them, gave them my serial number, and they confirmed that etrialer is a preferred dealer, and my serial number is legit.... I contacted progressive dynamics also during installation, and they were very helpful. I was concerned the the wire coming out of the unit that hooks up to your 12 v batteries was 12AWG. I though that seemed too light a gauge, and should be at least 10AWG maybe 8AWG. Progressive dynamics, technical guy said that they have a special high temp insulation on those wires and they can indeed handle 40 AMPS. He recommended (which looks odd installed) but I ran 8AWG from my battery, and spliced it to the 12AWG wire on progressive dynamics unit. No Complaints so far, its been running great and charging the batteries. No regrets.

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Inverters


I had my son-in-law who is an electrician install the converter. The converter is working good and the battery charge was really good. I believe that the water pump pressure was the best I had in a long time which indicates how well the battery is charged. The reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is that I think that a better manual could of come with the converter. When I connected the battery there was a green flashing light that I didn't know what it meant but after an internet search I found out what it meant. E-trailer was great to deal with, fast service and answered my questions quickly,

Review from a similar Inteli-Power in RV Inverters


The service from eTrailer was excellent as always and customer support was very good. I was replacing my brand new WFCO WF-8735 unit because it was not a smart charger - I could not get it to charge my batteries at full speed. The PD4135 is a direct replacement for it and provides better options for charging manually and also has a switch that converts charging for a Li battery. Although the product installed easily, there were a few glitches. One, etrailer did not send a manual with the product, so I had to get it online. Even then, the manual left a lot to be desired. It didn't describe the installation well nor the operation. The PD unit is a bit smaller than the WFCO and therefore the PD cover just barely covered the old screw holes. Also, the WFCO has 7 fuses but are not identical to PD's 7. The PD has 5 branch circuits like the WFCO except it has one extra circuit that can handle up to 30A - that's the second red wire (labeled 002) and the 6th fuse. The 7th fuse is red on both units and is for reverse protection. The 6th fuse on the WFCO is to doubly protect all of the branch circuits and has a metal 30A fuse - that's not in the design of the PD. Operationally, the PD works fine. The switch to convert to Li batteries is TINY and prone to breaking off (my first unit had the the switch in the bottom of the box!) You'll have to scour the PD website to find a picture of the switch since it is not included in the manual. Also, not included anywhere is the need to remove a 4 wire harness when using Li batteries. Also hard to find but on the website is the operation of the push button for manually exiting the Wizard mode and the meaning of the flashing light. Other than those minor issues, the unit is great.

Working my way to more battery capability. To that end, purchasing this lithium converter enhanced my total recovery time when recharging my battleborn batteries.

Installed this to replace the POS converter that came with the camper. The original converter killed two batteries before I figure out it was the problem. This one seems to be much better - no issues with the battery. The old one the voltage/amps varied as the battery was depleted, then it would kick in, supercharge the battery and kill it. The voltage is very stable with this one - lights don't dim then brighten suddenly.

This product was recommended by the lifepo4 battery manufacturer to fully charge the 3 batteries I purchased. Installation was pretty simple. Did not have to run larger wiring which was thankful. Simply swap out old converter charger with new one and ready to use. I would highly recommend this product.

I have had no problems whatsoever. Boondocked for 9 days in Grand Teton National Park last September. Used my generator to freshen up Battle Born lithium batteries and converter charger worked perfectly.

The Progressive Dynamic 80 amp lithium charger is a great product. Charges the lithium batteries very fast. Its a simple well built charger converter. I've used it for about 8 months now.

Old Progressive Dynamics Intelli-Power 55 amp converter gave up the ghost--after twenty-one trouble free years in my 5th wheel.
