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.
The system has one large inverter (10kW) and a decent battery capacity. The total expected operation of this system is 6553 watts per hour during a 2.5hour load shed.
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.
The Kodak Axpert is the one of the top sold inverters 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 some of the top performing lithium RAC units on the market with one of the longest life span of all batteries in its class.
