My boat is set up with 230 Volt AC System (alternating current
, not air conditioning!). I am going to install a Xantrex Prosine inverter
to take the 24Volt DC battery
power up to 230 Volt AC to operate the house outlets and microwave. The inverter
has a built in transfer switch that favors the Generator/shore power leg over the inverter so the inverter is only providing power when necessary.
When I'm plugged into a 110V shore power
supply, I don't want the 110V power to flow through the inverter transfer switch because it would fry the microwave or cause problems for 230 volt appliances
plugged into the house outlets.
Is there a voltage sensing switch that would automatically disconnect the AC power to the inverter (installed in-line) when the shore power
is supplying 110V power?
Thanks for your replies!
