Product InformationStore Part Number: PST-600-12


The PST-600-12 Converts 12VDC to 120 VAC

Samlex offers superior quality Pure Sine Wave AC-DC power inverters for many different applications. 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.

The 12 volt PST series inverters can withstand dc voltages of up to 16.5 volts which means that they are compatible with highvoltage 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. 

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.


  • 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


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.
