This Inverter is capable of providing 10A clean sine wave 120VAC running on Locomotive or Marine 74VDC systems.

It has a wide input range of operation, 56-90VDC allowing the inverter to provide 120VAC even when the locomotive engine is not running.  The output is protected with a 10A circuit and the input is protected through software.

 

A 20 Amp Circuit Breaker is required on the input to protect the wiring to the inverter, this Circuit Breaker is provided by car builder. It is typically used to power 120VAC outlets including running any accessories that require 120VAC power, Cab refrigerator, Cab microwave and Laptop power AC outlets.

 

 
 

 

This LED light is a stand-alone fixture, it does not require any additional harnesses from the supercap supply, it meets FRA emergency egress lighting requirement, Once the 120VAC feed is lost the LED turns on for 90 minutes allowing illumination incase battery power is lost, can also be used on locomotives that require Emergency light to come on once Emergency Brake is toggled.   

Can be installed in a locomotive cab above each door or in all coach cars as Emergency lighting.
