UPC Code037332161338
Nominal Input Voltage(s) Supported220V AC; 230V AC; 240V AC
Nominal Input Voltage Description170-264V +/- 3%
Maximum Input Amps / WattsDC INPUT: Full continuous load - 240A at 12VDC. AC INPUT: 17 amps at 230VAC with full inverter and charger load (8.7A max charger-only / combined input load to support charger and AC output is automatically controllable to 66%-33%-0% based on AC output loading using the charger limiting set points - see manual for setting instructions)
Recommended Electrical ServiceDC INPUT: Requires 12VDC input source capable of delivering 240A for the required duration (when used at full continuous capacity - DC requirements increase during OverPower and DoubleBoost operation). For automotive applications, professional hardwire installation with 200A minimum battery system fusing is recommended.

Questions & Answers

The batteries used with the inverter should be the same voltage and amp hour rating. If you're purchasing 6 of the 98-121 (12volt, 75 amp hour) batteries you will definitely have matching batteries and shouldn't have any battery backup issues.
