Anes E-Z Power Converter

06/06/2011 1:53 AM

I have been given a half finished "build your own" power generator. The unit comes with an Anes E-Z power converter (110V). I would like to keep this converter but am having great difficulty locating any information at all on this particular unit, more specifically a wiring diagram. I would like this converter to attach to a 12V car battery and a 10SI Deco Remy alternator. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

As opposed to the information in #1, this is the data sheet you are asking for. Note that steps one thru six are on the last page.

Be aware, this is a converter, not an inverter. Output is 110VDC.

GA - Nice Find!

When I saw "Made in USA" I thought NO WAY.

Then I saw the date 1/88 and it made sense.

Those were the days or nearing the last of them anyway as far as home grown electronics manufacturers.

I was sort of hoping to find something on the 'net about how this glorified transformer fits into the overall ""build your own" power generator." our OP is trying to get working, but could not find anything with the info provided.

I have a feeling there is some magic component (in the sales literature, anyway) that disregards gets around all of those pesky rules about conservation... Wouldn't we all enjoy hearing more about this?

Thanks KJK!

You know something I just thought of...

How have the electronics in automobiles changes since 1988?

I would think hard and long about installing one of these in a vehicle newer than 1988. All of the installations require a rework of the harness at the alternator...

This is starting to sound like a bad idea.

Doorman,

Just wanted to thank you for all of the information. The "build your own" project consists of a 5 hp Briggs and Stratton, the alternator, a 12v battery, a voltmeter and two 1/2" copper ground tubes mounted to the frame. This is a project I would like to make operational and maybe gain a little knowledge along the way. Also, I may swap the converter out for an inverter as noted in one of the responses. If you do not mind, I will try to keep you posted with my success as well as my setbacks.

Regards
