Features of the Magnum Energy ME3112 3100 Watt 12V Modified Sine Wave Inverter / 160A Charger

  • Power Factor Corrected (PFC) Charger:
      Our PFC charger is built into all of our inverter chargers. It uses less energy from a generator than a standard charger — using only 15 amps per 100 amps versus 23 amps used by standard chargers.
  • Choices:
      The ME Series comes in three power models, allowing you to choose the model that is right for you.
  • Versatile mounting:
      Mount the ME Series on a shelf, bulkhead, or even upside down.
  • Lightweight:
      The lightweight aluminum base and cover also provides noise reduction and corrosion resistance.
  • Multiple ports:
      The ME Series provides multiple ports, including an RS485 communication port for network expansion, and a remote port.
  • Accessible design:
      The extra large AC access cover with terminal screw block and 360° DC connection terminals with covers make this inverter more accessible when it needs to be.
  • Convenient switches:
      The ME Series comes with an on/ off inverter-mounted switch with an easy-to-read LED indicator. Expanded transfer relay: 60 Amp transfer service is available on all models.
  • Buy with ease:
      The ME Series is backed by a three-year (36-month) limited warranty.
  • Accessories and Options
    • Remote control: For convenient finger-tip operation, including the new one-knob programming.
    • AGS module: Automatically starts and stops your generator based on temperature or battery voltage.
