Description

The 19.2kWh load shed kit is normal household operation. You can take out entire rooms, whole circuit breakers and if you are using power efficiently, you can take out your entire house.

8 x Rentech 200Ah 12v Lead Carbon Batteries

6 x MGSA – 35mm x 25cm Battery Connectors

1 x KETO Battery Disconnector with 250A Fuses

2 x MGSA – 35mm x 100cm Battery Connectors

Installation:

The inverter needs to be wired into a distribution board or a pre designated red circuit. A red circuit is a breaker on your distribution board that will have all your persistent (immune to power outage) loads connected to it. Naturally you can also wire in an extension lead type plug point but ideally this inverter should be a more permanent fixture.

Benefits/Drawbacks

The system has two large inverters(10kW)  and a decent battery capacity. The total expected operation of this system is 3840 watts per hour during load shed, anymore would not allow you to sustain a 2.5 hour load shed. You can of course easily add on an additional four batteries get the maximum benefit. That said, you can power quite a bit with 3840 watts.

In addition to this, the components used are full sub assemblies for solar systems. This means that should you want to go completely off grid, or lower you monthly energy bills, you merely need to add solar panels.

An additional benefit of the system is the inverter which as its own built in charger, thus the system is completely self sustaining and does not require management or user intervention. It automatically kicks in when load shedding starts and automatically charges the battery when load shedding ends. You would not notice a load shed for anything connected to that system.

Quality

The Kodak Axpert is the top sold inverter in the country. Its a hardy piece of equipment, looks great and good value for money. Should there be any problem on the inverter it has excellent local service and support. The batteries used here are the top performing lead carbon batteries on the market with the longest life span of all batteries in its class.
