Product InformationStore Part Number: PST-600-12


The Samlex America PST-600-12 Converts 12 VDC to 120 VAC.

Samlex PST-600-12 is a high efficency Pure Sine Wave DC to AC power inverters that can be used in many different applications. The clean power delivered by Samlex's PST Series Inverters 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 big box stores that carry modified sine inverters.

The Samlex PST-600-12 is a 12 volt PST series inverters that has a wide DC operating range of 10.0 volts to 16.5 volts. This make the PST-600-12 compatible with high voltage dc charging-such as solar charging and equalization charging.  Because of the heavy duty chassis, the PST-600-12 is able to cool itself via convection, which allows for less fan run time-leading to longer fan life and less no load draw.


  • Samlex Pure Sine Wave Advantage
  • Motors speed more accurate, run cooler and last longer
  • TV monitors will be crystal clear (as good as using city power)
  • Medical equipment often requires pure sine wave for proper operation
  • No Load Draw 500 mA
  • Output Voltage 120 VAC +/- 3%
  • AC Output Frequency 60 Hz
  • Low Voltage Alarm 10.7 V
  • Low Voltage Shut Down 10 V
  • Two AC Receptacle 3-Prong Grounded


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.

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 350 watts to run but may need 1000 watts to start. Please check with the manufacturer of your equipment to obtain minimum watts for starting operation of the equipment or device.

Pros: Quite Fan has not come on with a constant 170W load Does not get hot with 170w load
Cons: None
This inverter is worth the extra money. I installed this inverter in my 2015 Yukon XL Denali which I am driving across the US at this time. The inverter is working flawlessly.

high quality, excellent service
I previously had the 300W but will be purchasing the 600w. The fan ran very quiet and it performed well. when the fan burned out after 7 years of constant daily use, support sent out a new one at no cost. That level of service is why I will be upgrading to a larger one from Samlex.
