Product InformationStore Part Number: PST-1000-12


The Samlex America PST-1000-12 converts 12 volts DC battery power to 120 Volts AC.

The Samlex PST line features high frequency switch-mode design providing clean and stable pure sine wave power. The PST-1000-12 has a wide DC operating range of 10.5 volts to 16.5 volts. This make the PST-1000-12 compatible with high voltage dc charging-such as solar charging and equalization charging.

The clean power delivered by a Pure Sine Wave Inverter 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 PST-1000-12 has a tempature controlled fan for cooling, and has the following built in protections: input low voltage, input over voltage, over temperature, over load, short circuit. 


  • High efficiency
  • Low battery voltage alarm
  • Protections: input low voltage, input over voltage, over temperature, over load, short circuit
  • Low idle power draw
  • Built-in electronic GFCI
  • Optional remote control (sold separately): Model RC-15
  • Comes with pin-type battery cable lugs


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 800 watts to run but may need 2300 watts to start. Please check with the manufacturer of your equipment to obtain minimum watts for starting operation of the equipment or device.
