WFCO 5110HP Inverter

WFCO Electronics introduced its new WF-8500 Series Power Center in a high-capacity, compact size with a choice of three types of connection modes, according to a news release.

The WF-8500 Series is on display along with its WF-511OHP inverter upgrade at the National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Ky., Dec. 1 to 3. (Booth 428 in the Lower Arena, Hall 8).

The 8500’s cooling system requires zero clearance for ventilation, and it has an exceptionally small footprint, thus increasing useable space for RV manufacturers to install other amenities, according to the release.

Initially it will be offered in 40 amp and 60 amp models, with a 50 amp application to be added.

For easy DC installation, a choice of three electrical connection modes are offered, matching those favored by RV manufacturers — either screw terminals, QuickConnect flag terminals, or wire pigtails. An exceptional range of 13 DC circuits, three of which are rated 30 amps, enables manufacturers to install more circuits for greater design flexibility.

LED light indicators that glow in a three-color code system provide instant information to technicians and owners about dead circuits, reverse battery polarity and bulk mode operation. LED lights also serve to indicate whether incoming AC voltage is low, normal or high, and each of the 13 DC fuse circuits contain a red LED light to indicate a blown fuse.

The 8500 Series also provides a number of other protective features, such as:

• An automatic two-speed, load-controlled cooling fan: Unlike traditional temperature-controlled fans, the 8500’s load-controlled fan provides improved cooling by avoiding temperature spikes, which can lead to premature component failure.

• The unit will automatically shut down to protect it from excessive heat damage if the temperature of the converter exceeds a certain point.

• The Electric Current Limiting feature will also automatically shut down the converter during overload or short circuit conditions until the specific condition is corrected.
