  • 2 Years parts and labour



Wall mount design Allows flexibility and ease of installation.
Performance True sinewave output with unmatched surge power enables the operation of demanding appliances, such as fridges, microwaves washing machines & pumps.
Pure Sinewave Output Provides the ideal power source for all modern electronics.
Short Circuit Proof Indestructible design protects itself against any AC shorts.
Reliability Benchmark quality standards ensure optimum reliability, backed by a full 2 year parts and labour warranty.
Full Electronic Protection Sophisticated circuitry provides protection against overload, short circuit, over temperature and high/low voltage shutdowns.
Frequency 50/60Hz Selectable Fully selectable between 50/60Hz via a set of internal dip switches.
Autostart Sophisticated sensing circuitry automatically switches the inverter ON and OFF with applied appliances. The Autostart is an important feature as it maximises valuable battery capacity. Sensitivity of the Autostart can be easily adjusted to either start small appliances or run continuously.
Durable Construction Latronics® Inverters are a quality industrial product made to withstand vibration and constant movement in mobile or marine installations, as well as the diverse range of home or commercial applications.
Corrosion Conscious Design Latronics® Inverters are built for extreme environments using a recyclable powder coated aluminium casing, a more noble metal than steel
High Efficiency Toroidal Transformer Toroidal transformers provide the highest efficiency and durability.
High Surge Rating High surge rating allows easy starting of motors and high inrush current devices.
DC Circuit Breaker Protects the inverter and cables from becoming a potential fire hazard under fault conditions, as well as providing full isolation from your batteries while switched OFF, reducing the need for additional battery fuses.
AC/DC  Isolation Full 3500V AC/DC isolation.
Heavy Duty DC Battery Leads High quality, high current DC leads for low loss power delivery.
LED Status Indicators A full set of LED's keeps the user informed of its operation at all times.
Options A complete Australian made product, proudly designed and manufactured in Australia by a 100% Australian owned company.
