The Lux Power LXP-LB-US-12K is a versatile 12kW All-In-One inverter suitable for both off-grid and grid-tied applications, providing backup power, peak-shaving, or load-shedding capabilities. Bridging the gap between battery-less grid-tie inverters and off-grid systems. It can export excess solar PV to the grid, creating an effective net-metering system.
Connect up to 18,000 Watts of solar PV to charge batteries or export to the grid, thanks to three independent MPPT inputs with a wide voltage range (100 – 600 Volt). The inverter supports long PV strings for simplified installation.
Featuring a built-in 200 Amp transfer switch, the Lux Power 12K seamlessly switches from grid-tie to off-grid mode in under 20ms, making it an efficient Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) to prevent disruptions, ideal for powering computers.
Pair it with Volthium’s rack-mount lithium-ion batteries for a code-compliant whole-house battery backup system during grid outages. It’s also a cost-effective solution for storing cheap nighttime electricity for daytime use.
Stack up to 6 Lux Power 12K inverters for a 240V split-phase system (72kW total) using a single battery bank. Warranty and support are provided by a Canadian company, Volthium, ensuring reliable service.
The Lux Power 12K meets all grid-tie regulations, including UL/CSA-listing for the USA and Canada, AFCI, and GFCI for solar PV input, minimizing the need for additional equipment. It’s an ESA inspection-compliant choice for Ontario.
Although manufactured in China, Lux Power’s warranty and support are backed by a Canadian company, making it a reliable choice.
