Product InformationStore Part Number: SA-1500-112


Converts 12VDC to 100/110/115/120 VAC ± 5% (Switch Selectable)

The Samlex SA-1500-112 industrial grade inverter is capable of driving highly reactive and capacitive loads. With a high efficiency microprocessor controlled DC-AC inverter converts 12 Volts DC (Nominal) to 1500 watts of pure sine-wave AC power at 110 Volts, 60 Hz. offers PURE SINE WAVE (aka true sine wave) that provides high-end specialty users power portability for sensitive electronic equipment. The clean power delivered by a Pure Sine Wave is of the same quality and efficiency as the power provided by your utility company, which is not the case with the cheaper and more popular modified sine inverters.

We highly recommend the use of Pure Sine Wave Inverters to power Computers and related peripheral devices; i.e. printers, optical drives, laser copiers, and if in doubt check with the manufacturer of your equipment.

Other devices that benefit when Pure Sine Wave power is used are variable speed control motors using solid state circuitry, Audio Amplifiers, Digital Clocks and Radios, Medical Equipment, Microwaves, etc.


  • Higher upper DC input limit of 16 V allows higher charging voltages during equalization or, when using Lead Calcium batteries
  • Advanced micro-controller
  • Switch selectable output voltage: 100/110/115/120 VAC
  • Switch selectable output frequency: 50/60 Hz
  • Pure sine wave output (THD < 3%)
  • Switch selectable Power Save Mode: No load power reduces to < 2 W till load of 2-15 W is sensed.
  • Computer interfaced Remote Control using R5-232C / ASCII Code
  • Optional wired remote control
  • Input and output fully isolated
  • 2 temperature controlled fans save power consumption
  • LED bar graph for input voltage / output power; LEDs for fault indications


PLEASE NOTE: Many electrical devices require a good deal more Watts to start or energize than is required run once started. For instance an electric motor may require only 900 watts to run but need may 2300 watts to start. Please check with the manufacturer of your equipment to obtain minimum watts for starting operation of the equipment or device. *Flat Rate shipping is for the lower 48 states only.
