Bel Power Solutions has launched the 700INV60-120-240-9G, a DC-AC inverter for powering accessories on commercial electric and hybrid vehicles. The inverter converts a DC power source into split-phase AC power at 120/240 volts to power auxiliary equipment such as air conditioning.
The 6-kW inverter has an efficiency of 93 percent, according to Bel, and can be paralleled into a single-phase configuration for an output of 36 kW. Liquid cooling enables the inverter to operate at temperatures of -40º C to 85º C with no power derating.
A Controller Area Network (CAN bus) can be used to control the inverter, which features minimum vibration immunity that meets SAE J1455 and MIL-STD-202G standards. Additional protections include over-temperature, output over-voltage, and over-current conditions.
