    • This MSH3012M Inverter / Charger from Magnum Energy is a 3000 Watt, 12 Volt DC Pure Sine Hybrid Inverter Charger
    • Hybrid technology:
      • Most inverters only use one source of energy to power loads, either from incoming AC power – shore or AC generator – or from the batteries
      • The MSH-M Series combines the energy from both sources to power loads
      • This allows the inverter to recharge the batteries when there is surplus power or deliver more power to the loads if they require more than the AC input can supply by itself
    • Pure sine wave:
      • Power your T.V.s, stereos, plasma screens, and other sensitive electronics without worry
      • The pure sine wave inverter and power factor corrected charger provide clean, reliable inverter power with low total harmonic distortion (THD) of less than 5%
    • Load support:
      • Load support parallels the inverter output with incoming AC sources
      • Designed with true hybrid technology allowing it to run larger loads from smaller generators
    • Easy AC and DC Wiring
      • Install the MSH-M Series in four easy steps:
        • Simply connect the inverter's output to your distribution circuits or electrical panel
        • Connect your utility power cable to the inverter's easy-to-reach terminal block
        • Connect the batteries
        • Switch on the power
    • Lightweight: The lightweight aluminum base and cover also provides noise reduction and corrosion resistance
    • Multiple ports: The MSH-M 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 MSH-M Series comes with an on / off inverter-mounted switch with an easy-to-read LED indicator
      • Optional AGS module (Sold Separately) automatically starts and stops your generator based on temperature or battery voltage
    • Warranty: 3 Year
