Balmar Model u2512sb ??

Was wondering if anyone out there may have information on this, Balmar Model u2512sb 2.5kw high efficiency power inverter? Just bought a 1993 Lagoon 37' with one on board that seems to be semi working (making clicking sounds even when hooked up to shore power). Cannot find a manual on board or on line and thought I'd throw it out there in the hopes that someone else has some knowledge.

U2512SB was the same model number as a 2.5kW inverter/charger made by Trace at the time your boat was made.

Perhaps it was rebranded/sold by Balmar? Does it look like this:

Yes, it does look like that. Was wondering why when I did a search for that make and model, model would show up but not Balmar Do you have any experience with these? Thanks for replying.....

Yes, we had one and it was very good. Trace were exceptional engineering in those days - some of the best in the world. We sold ours only because we wanted a pure sine wave inverter.

These are line-frequency inverters, and can be repaired at board level if wanted (and found someone to do it). You can get the manuals on-line.
