INSTALLATION Go Power GP-IC2000 Pure Sine Wave Inverter User Manual-13
Go Power GP-IC2000 Pure Sine Wave Inverter User Manual-14

LOCATION AND ENVIRONMENTAL REQUIREMENTS

The GP-IC-2000 Inverter Charger must be installed in a location that meets the following requirements

  1. TEMPERATURE
    Make sure the GP-IC-2000 is installed in a location where the normal air temperature is between 0 °C and 50 °C. The cooler the better within this range. Note the GP-IC-2000 maximum output wattage will derate in temperatures above 45 °C.
  2. MOISTURE
    Do not allow water or other fluids to come into contact with the GP-IC-2000. Do not expose to rain, snow, or water.

    CAUTION! Equipment Damage. Installing the GP-IC-2000 in environments where moisture may occur will cause
    the Inverter/Charger to be exposed to the harmful effects of corrosive environments and certain components’ service
    lives’ will be compromised and not covered by the warranty.

  3. VENTILATION
    For optimum Inverter/Charger performance, the GP-IC-2000 must be installed so the front, side, and rear air vents are not blocked or obstructed in any way. Do not install the GP-IC-2000 in an area with limited airflow. Allow as much space around the Inverter / Charger as possible, leaving at least 6” of airspace clearance around all ventilation areas.

    CAUTION! Equipment Damage. Do not mount the GP-IC-2000 in a zero-clearance compartment. Do not cover the
    ventilation openings. Overheating and mechanical failure may occur

  4. FIRE
    Install the GP-IC-2000 away from the battery bank, away from any flammable or combustible material (paper, flammable liquids, gasoline, cloths) that may be ignited by heat, sparks, or flames. Never place the Inverter/Charger directly above the battery bank – gases from the batteries will corrode and damage the Inverter/Charger, never allow battery acid to drip onto the unit.
  5. ACCESSIBILITY / ORIENTATION
    Do not block access to the GP-IC-2000 remote control and battery temperature access ports, status LEDs, and the On/Off switch. Allow enough room to access the AC and DC wiring terminals and connections as they will need to be checked and tightened periodically. The GP-IC-2000 must be installed in one of the approved mounting orientations detailed on page 17.
  6. CLEAN
    The GP-IC-2000 should be installed in a location that is clean and limits the introduction of dust, fumes, insects, or rodents that could enter and block the Inverter/Chargers ventilation openings.
  7. PROXIMITY TO BATTERY BANK
    The GP-IC-2000 should be located as close to the batteries as possible but not within the same compartment. The length and size of the DC Cables will affect performance. Long DC wires tend to lose efficiency and reduce the overall performance of the Inverter/Charger. Use the DC cables recommended on page 20.

MOUNTING THE INVERTER/CHARGER

  • Before connecting any wires to the Inverter / Charger the unit must be mounted securely in a location that meets the
    requirements detailed in section 3.2.
  • The GP-IC-2000 weighs 39 lbs (17.6 kg). Take the necessary precautions required whilst lifting, moving, and installing the unit. It is recommended to use two people whilst mounting the unit. All mounting surfaces and hardware must be capable of supporting at least twice the weight of the Inverter / Charger.
  • The Inverter/Charger base can reach high temperatures and should be mounted on a non-combustible surface.
  • The GP-IC-2000 must be mounted in the positions highlighted below to meet regulatory requirements.
  • After determining the mounting position use the dimensions on page 10 or use the base of the Inverter / Charger to mark the mounting screw locations. Mount the unit with the appropriate mounting hardware (not supplied). Ensure the unit is fastened securely.Go Power GP-IC2000 Pure Sine Wave Inverter User Manual-22

GENERAL WIRING SPECIFICATIONS

The following sections detail how the GP-IC-2000 should be wired. Before starting any wiring read and understand these instructions. Wiring should meet all local codes and standards and be performed by qualified personnel such as a licensed electrician. The NEC (National Electrical Code) and CEC (Canadian Electrical Code) provide the standards for safe wiring, wire sizes, over-current protection, installation methods, and requirements. The GP-IC-2000 system can handle power from multiple sources (utility, generator, and batteries) which makes the wiring hazardous and challenging. The input and output AC and DC circuits are isolated from the inverter/charger chassis. The Inverter/Charger grounding is the responsibility of the installer by NEC/CEC or the local electrical codes.

CABLE PROTECTION
All the DC and AC cables leading to/from the GP-IC-2000 must be protected as required by the code. This can be accomplished using a jacketed (armored) cable or by feeding the wire through a conduit.

CABLE STRAIN RELIEF & TORQUE REQUIREMENTS
The GP-IC-2000 AC input/output terminals can handle multi-core cables up to 1.3” in diameter. If using large-diameter cable it is highly recommended to use additional (nonmetallic) cable strain relief clamps mounted outside the Inverter / Charger these will ease the torque and leverage forces that could be present at the cable entry/exit locations.
Torque all AC and DC wiring connections to 16 in lbf (1.8 N-m), make sure the connections are secure, and re-check all connections periodically (at least every 6 months, more frequently for heavy RV use) to make sure they remain secure.

CABLE REQUIREMENTS

  • Protect all conductors that may be at risk of physical damage by using conduit, tape, or placing them in a raceway.
  • Do not mix AC and DC Wiring in the same conduit or panel. Where DC wiring must cross AC, try to make sure the wires cross perpendicular to each other.
  • Both AC and DC over-current protection must be provided.
  • The Inverter/Charger requires a reliable negative and ground return path to the battery.
  • Use only copper wires with a minimum temperature rating of 75 °C.

CABLE LAYOUT PLANNING
Before connecting any cables, determine all cable routes to/from the GP-IC-2000.

  • AC Input cables from the external transfer switch (if using shore and generator).
  • DC Input cables from the batteries.
  • AC Output cables from the Inverter / Charger to the AC breaker panel.
  • Battery Temperature Sensor cable from the Inverter / Charger to the batteries.
  • Remote Control cable to the Inverter / Charger.
  • Ground wiring to/from the Inverter / Charger.

 DC OVERCURRENT PROTECTION AND DC DISCONNECT

  • Batteries are capable of providing very large currents in case of a short circuit, if this occurs with no DC overcurrent protection, it will result in overheating and melting of the cables and possibly serious injury and/or fire.
  • DC overcurrent protection is not included with the GP-IC-2000. It must be installed between the Inverter / Charger and battery bank for safety reasons and to comply with code regulations.
  • Use a very fast-acting DC fuse or circuit breaker in the positive cable, the fuse should be installed as close as possible to the battery-positive terminal. Ideally, the fuse/circuit breaker should be installed within 18” (45cm of the battery). The fuse required for DC Cable lengths up to 5ft is detailed in the above table.
  • In all installations a battery disconnect switch is required, if you install a circuit breaker for overcurrent protection this will suffice as a disconnect switch. If you install a fuse for overcurrent protection then a separate disconnect switch will need to be installed.

PREPARING THE DC CABLES
Go Power! supplies 2 ring lugs with the GP-IC-2000 which can be used for the Inverter / Charger end of the DC Cables. Source the correct ring terminals for the batteries you are using.

  • Cut the negative and positive cables to the required length.
  • Strip off enough insulation so you can install the ring lugs provided.
  • Use the correct crimp connector to install the ring lugs.
  • Attach the connectors to both ends of both cables. Make sure no stray wire strands protrude from the connectors.

DC CABLE CONNECTIONS
When installing the battery cable ring lug onto the GP-IC-2000 DC terminal and the battery post – do not put anything between the ring lug and the metal surface. Incorrectly installed hardware causes a high resistance connection which could lead to poor Inverter/Charger performance and may melt the cable and terminal connections. Refer to the figures on page 21 to connect the DC Cables and install the hardware correctly. Use a 13mm wrench or socket to tighten the M8 x 1.25mm Nuts. Tighten the terminal connections securely and periodically check the connections to make sure they remain tight and secure.
To help prevent seizing and corrosion around the terminals the use of an anti-seize lubricant is highly recommended. Apply the antioxidant grease or spray after all the connections are made and tightened.

Go Power GP-IC2000 Pure Sine Wave Inverter User Manual-15

BATTERY TEMPERATURE SENSOR INSTALLATION

The Battery Temperature Sensor (BTS) extends the life of the battery by preventing overcharging in warm temperatures and undercharging in cold temperatures. The BTS provides the Inverter / Charger with precise battery temperature information to automatically adjust the absorb and float charge voltage set points. If the BTS is NOT installed and the battery bank is subjected to large temperature changes the battery life will be reduced.

  • Install the battery temperature sensor ring terminal onto the NEGATIVE battery terminal.
  • Route the sensor’s cable to the Inverter / Charger following existing wire runs.
  • Connect the RJ11 connector end of the BTS cable to the ‘Battery Temp’ port on the Inverter / Charger. Go Power GP-IC2000 Pure Sine Wave Inverter User Manual-16

AC POWER SOURCE TYPES

AC Input power to the GP-IC-2000 can be supplied from a split-phase or dual-input single-phase AC source. These sources typically include utility power or a generator.

  • Split Phase: This source has 4 lines: 2 hotlines, one neutral, and one ground. The 2 hotlines are 120VAC and are 180 degrees out of phase with each other so the 2 voltages equal 240VAC. The voltage between each hot line and neutral is 120VAC and the voltage between the neutral and ground is approximately zero. Because the 2 lines are out of phase, the currents from each line subtract from the neutral, and the neutral current will be approximately zero if the loads on each line are equal. For example, if Hot 1 is supplying 20A and Hot 2 is supplying 15A, the current in the neutral will be 5A.
  • Dual Input: This source has 4 lines: 2 Hotlines, one neutral, and one ground. The 2 Hot Lines are 120VAC and are in phase and must come from the same source. The voltage between the 2 hotlines is zero. The voltage between each hotline and the neutral is 120VAC and the voltage between the neutral and the ground is approximately zero. Because the 2 lines are in phase, the currents from each line add together in the neutral. For example, if Hot 1 is supplying 20A and Hot 2 is supplying 15A, the current in the neutral will be 35A.

AC WIRE SIZE AND OVERCURRENT PROTECTION
The wires used for the Input AC and Output AC must be sized to meet local electrical safety requirements. The AC wiring must be protected from short circuits and overloads by an overcurrent protection device, these requirements are usually met using a main panel and sub-panel (with suitable circuit breakers/fuses installed) located before and after the Inverter / Charger as shown on pages 30 – 33.

FINAL INSPECTION

  1. Verify all cables/conduit runs are secured with zip ties or other non-conductive cable clamps to prevent damage from vibration.
  2. Ensure all cables that pass through walls, bulkheads, or any other openings are protected against abrasion by using strain reliefs and/or grommets.
  3. Check all AC, DC, and ground connections are securely tightened, and if required covered with suitable anti-seizing grease.
  4. Check the AC terminal connection cover plate has been securely re-attached.
  5. Check all connections are secure in the main and sub panels – replace all covers.
  6. If required by code, have the installation inspected by an electrical inspector.

TESTING THE INSTALLATION

  1. Apply battery power to the inverter by engaging the fuse, switching the breaker, or switching the battery disconnect switch to the ON position. The GP-IC-2000 will remain off.
  2. Disconnect all AC loads from the breaker panel by switching the main on/off breaker to OFF.
  3. Press the ON/OFF button. Verify the inverter status indicator is solid green (ON).
  4. Connect a 25W light bulb to the inverter output and verify it comes on and shines normally.
  5. Press and release the ON/OFF button to turn the Inverter / Charger off, the bulb will turn off and the status indicator will turn off.
  6. Apply AC shore power (utility or generator) to the GP-IC-2000. After around 10 seconds the Inverter / Charger will click and the incoming power will be passed through and the light bulb will turn on. The status indicator will be green.
  7. The inverter is currently OFF because the AC shore power is powering the light bulb. Press and release the ON/OFF switch on the GP-IC-2000 to turn on the Inverter.
  8. Disconnect the AC shore power, the light bulb should remain on and is now being powered by the Inverter (battery bank).

WARNING LABELS

  • When an Inverter / Charger is installed in a building the NEC requires a label or plaque to be provided. This label/plaque is required to be easily visible and to provide information that informs users of the location of all electrical system disconnects. Buildings with stand-alone power systems (solar, generator) and utility power must have a permanent plaque or directory providing the location of both system disconnects.
  • An Inverter warning label should be installed in a visible location on the breaker panel that is being powered by the GP-IC-2000. This label is used because it might be falsely assumed that the panel is no longer “live” after the AC Shore Power is turned off, when power may still be available from the Inverter (battery bank) powering the sub panel.

FACTORY DEFAULT VALUES

The GP-IC-2000 uses default values for the following adjustable settings;

Go Power GP-IC2000 Pure Sine Wave Inverter User Manual-17

These settings are only adjustable with the GP-IC-2000 remote, which can be purchased separately from Go Power! For detailed information on these settings please refer to the remote control manual. The remote also displays the real-time Inverter / Chargers operating status and allows the user to run the equalized charging profile on the battery bank.

GP-IC-2000 FAULT CONDITIONS

The GP-IC-2000 is protected against fault conditions and in normal use it will be rare to see any. If a fault condition does occur, the GP-IC-2000 will shut down as a safety measure to protect itself, the battery bank, and the AC loads. The following fault conditions could be the cause of the Inverter / Charger shut down;

  • LOW BATTERY – The GP-IC-2000 will shut off whenever the battery bank voltage falls to the LBCO (Low Battery Cut Out) level to protect the batteries from being over-discharged. When the Inverter / Charger has reached the LBCO and is turned off, the unit will automatically restart when AC shore power is supplied to the AC Input and the battery bank voltage rises above the LBCI (Low Battery Cut In) 12.5 VDC level
  • HIGH BATTERY – The GP-IC-2000 will shut off whenever the battery bank voltage approaches the HBCO (High Battery Cut Out) level the Inverter / Charger will automatically shut down to prevent un-regulated AC output voltage from being supplied to the AC loads. The unit will automatically restart when the battery bank voltage falls below the HBCI (High Battery cut) 14.5 VDC level
  • OVER TEMPERATURE – The GP-IC-2000 monitors the temperature of several key components within the Inverter / Charger – if these components begin to exceed their safe operating temperature level, the unit will shut down to protect itself. The unit will automatically restart after the unit cools down.
  • OVERLOAD – When the GP-IC-2000 is in Inverting or AC pass-through mode, the Inverter / Charger monitors the current levels, in the event of a short circuit or an overload condition the unit will shut down. To start operating after this fault, the Inverter / Charger must be turned on using the on/off switch on the unit or remote control once the AC loads are reduced/removed.
  • INTERNAL FAULT – The GP-IC-2000 continues to monitor several internal components, if a condition occurs that does not allow normal operation the Inverter / Charger will shut down to protect itself, the battery bank, and the AC loads. To start operating after this fault, the Inverter / Charger must be turned on using the on/off switch on the unit or remote control

MAINTENANCE AND TROUBLESHOOTING

The GP-IC-2000 is designed to be service-free, even though there are no user-serviceable parts, it is recommended that every 6 months you perform the following maintenance steps to ensure optimum performance and extend the life of your batteries.
