3kW and 5kW Sine-Wave Inverters with Built-in Static Transfer Switches

August 15, 2019 by Paul Shepard

UNIPOWER announced expansion of its popular Scimitar 19-inch rack-mount sine-wave dc-ac inverter line with the introduction of both 3000 and 5000 Watt models featuring remote monitoring and control and built-in static transfer switches.

According to John Ely, Vice President of Marketing for UNIPOWER, “These new, higher power additions are in direct response to customer demands for ac capacity. The new line will augment the company’s existing line of 1kW and 2kW rack-mounted inverters.”

Ely added that, “We’ve specified that the Static Transfer Switch be standard and not an extra-cost option. Customers will have the peace of mind of a connection to a utility or other ac power source. That ac source can be switched to the load automatically in the event the inverter operation is interrupted, ensuring the load will not be dropped.”

The 2RU Scimitar 3000 series come in different models that operate from a 12-, 24- or 48-Vdc source and produce a 115- or 230-Vac output. The output voltages and frequencies are programmable from the front panel, as well as SNMP communications interface which can be used for remote monitoring.

The Scimitar 5000 models are 3RU high and operate from a 24- or 48-Vdc source, also producing a 115- or 230-Vac output.

Other notable features common in both series:

  • 50 or 60Hz low distortion sine wave output
  • -20 to +50°C operating temperature
  • -30 to +70°C storage temperature
  • Adjustable output voltage
  • Ability to power reactive loads
  • LED status display
  • Relay Alarm Output
  • 2-year warranty

There is an optional hinged front panel cover available.
