EVOLUTIONTM Series Inverter/Charger

Pure sine wave inverter, adaptive battery charger, transfer relay – All in ONE unit. Samlex EvolutionTM Series inverter/chargers provide reliable AC power wherever it’s needed. For use with boats, RVs, cabins and specialty vehicles, as well as alternative energy, back-up and emergency power applications.

Using state-of-the-art technology, the Samlex EVOTM inverter/charger operates at 165 million instructions per second with lightening fast load & response times, has 9 points of physical protection monitoring (being scanned up to 10,000 times per second) to detect fault conditions & protect itself in a vast range of adverse environments.

The EVO-3012 is a 3000 Watt Pure Sine inverter, 12 VDC input, 120 VAC output, 50/60 Hz. It intelligently integrates a 130 Amp 4 stage Battery Charger and a 70 Amp Transfer Relay into an advanced and affordable off-grid power solution.

Design Features

AC Inputs

  • Two separate AC inputs – one for grid (priority #1), one for generator (priority #2), connect simultaneously, no need to reconfigure when different power sources are available.
  • Generator Input is specifically designed to have more tolerance for wave form distortion, prevents unnecessary “rejection of AC input and switch to inverter” by tolerating distorted wave forms that can be produced by gritty generators
  • Each AC input is programmable for voltage and frequency. User determines what the min and max thresholds are to switch from Grid or Generator to Inverter.
  • Generator start can be initiated by “Status Relay” contact, can be programmed to activate when grid is lost.

Solar Input

  • Connect a solar charge controller directly to the EVOTM though the Battery Charger external DC Input, seamlessly integrates solar charging into the EVO’s power system.
  • ONLINE Mode can be used to prioritize Batteries/Inverter over the grid, ideal for those wishing to operate primarily on solar power (when the grid is available, but might be costly).

Battery Charger

  • 3 or 4 stage charging with Equalization (must be manually initiated). 
  • Adaptive algorithm is used during Bulk to assess the condition of the battery. Subsequent stages are then based on the condition of the battery rather than pre-set time periods for Absorption and Float. Prevents unnecessary charging, extends the life of batteries.
  • Programmable – set battery voltage thresholds to initiate charging.

Transfer Switch

  • Zero transfer time when switching from Inverter to Grid. When grid comes on, the inverter synchronizes with the wave form and then transfers instantly at zero crossing.
  • <16ms transfer when going from Grid to Inverter. When grid is lost, the transfer relay switches to inverter at the correct place in the wave form, the transfer takes less than 16ms.

Surge Capacity (Power Boost)

  • The EVOTM has 3X surge power
  • Additionally, the EVOTM has large power overload allowances available for long periods of time. Increased inverter capacity means you can size your inverter smaller to handle heavy surge loads, reducing costs.

State-of-the-Art Technology

  • The EVOTM operates at 165 million instructions per second producing lightning fast load and response times
  • The EVOTM is practically indestructible. It has “Bullet-Proof Intelligence” in the form of 9 physical points of protection monitoring being scanned up to 10,000 times per second for adverse conditions. The EVOTM will detect fault conditions and initiate a healthy shutdown before any product damage can be done.
  • The EVO-RC remote control (sold separately) can be used to capture detailed EVOTM performance data. Records all detected faults and the conditions leading up to them. Data is stored on a removable 16GB SD Card (in the remote). Use data to analyze trends for more efficient use of system resources
  • The EVOTM uses five temperature sensors placed throughout the unit to determine operation of 2 speed controlled cooling fans. Reduces unnecessary fan noise and energy consumption by only running when and where the fans are needed.

Shipping Policy:

When you place an order, you will receive a confirmation email of that order. This indicates that we have received your order in our system. Once your order has been received, we will contact our suppliers to determine whether that item is in stock and available to ship.

If your purchased item(s) are unavailable, we will notify you of other options that are available. If the item(s) are available for shipment (usually in 5 business days or less), we will inform our suppliers to ship the order directly to you.

If you do not receive an email with the tracking information from us within 7 business days from when you placed the order, please follow up with us at orders@SolarTechDirect.com.

Most orders are shipped via UPS or FedEx ground shipping to your designated shipping address. Larger items, such as solar panels (150W and above) and water heating tanks, must ship by freight, which is very costly. These items are not eligible for free shipping.

When the shipment arrives, the driver will ask you to sign for the delivery. This is a legal document stating that the package is being delivered in good condition without damage and that you are waiving any additional claim from the shipper. Before signing, inspect the package(s) closely on all sides. Note any damage, including scuffs, dents, tears, punctures or creases on the delivery receipt. If you sign for damaged goods without making a damage notation, we may not be able to help you persue a damage claim. Your signature on a shipping receipt is a legal release of claim for damage unless noted at the time of receipt. So check your delivery carefully.

If there is anything unusual with the package, you have the right to open it to inspect the contents. If the driver is unwilling to wait while you inspect all of the items, you may mark on the delivery receipt “Concealed Damage Possible”. If there is damage to the shipment, then you must contact SolarTech Direct immediately.
