Inverter with Battery Charger
CR Inverter/Charger

Affordable backup power solution
The entry-level CR Series provides AC power without interruption to keep your critical equipment running during a power outage. Built with an automatic transfer switch, the CR instantly switches to battery power during a blackout or brownout. When AC power is restored it automatically recharges the battery. Available in 1000, 1500 and 2400 watt models, it is ideal for powering common loads such as refrigerators, computers, lights, small televisions, radios and fans.


Product Info | Specifications | Datasheet


The CR Series combines the key benefits of uninterruptible power supplies with the extra runtime allowed by a larger battery bank. Backup power time is flexible – you can connect as many batteries as you need.  


  • Automatic, fast transfer ensures no intermittent loss of power to your critical loads
  • Built-in battery charging ensures batteries are fully charged and ready to use, 
    while protecting them from being overcharged
  • Low and high battery voltage and overload protection circuitry
  • Audible alarms to indicate low battery voltage, overload, and fault conditions
  • Front panel LED indicators to provide status-at-a-glance
