CGL 3K Series 3000 Watt Inverter

3000 Watt Inverter

12 V Pure Sine Wave Inverter

Legacy Series: This series is an older generation suitable for legacy military programs and other speciality applications. Nova Electric still services these models if required, but for new programs and most military / industrial / commercial applications, please see CGP or CGD series for a replacement.

Nova Electric’s CGL-Series 3000 Watt  inverters are intended for commercial and industrial applications wherever pure sinewave power is needed at 50 or 60 Hz. These 3000 Watt inverters are ideal for running electronic loads such as computers, monitors, printers, telecom systems, radios, fluorescent lamps from batteries, field generators, and solar electro-voltaic panels. These CGL-series  3000 Watt  inverters can also drive hand drills, motors and small compressors – please consult the factory for proper sizing. These CGL models can also be optionally ruggedized against shock, vibration, and humidity for military applications including vehicle mounted, shipboard, submarine, aircraft, and ground fixed shelters.
