12v 6000 watt Inverter

I am looking for a 12 volt 6000 watt inverter. It needs to output at least 50 amps and have a AC IN and AC OUT connection. Pure sine preferably. We need to run one AC unit and the microwave at the same time. We have solar and enough battery to handle it. Just not the inverter. Thanks.

12 volt/6k watt may be hard to find. Producing that many watts needs 24 or 48 volts.

That is 500 amps at 12 volts. Running it for 6 hours 3000 amp hours. That will be a substantial weight and volume in lead acid batteries.

Are you planning to use this in an RV?

Is this even a doable request? Surely not in 12 volt.

Biggest one I could find @12volts was 2K.

Transfer Switch w/inverter?

6000 watts is about 50 amps at 120 volts. That would be 50 amps output for an inverter. An inverter would have DC as an input of about 10 times that amount or 500 amps. An inverter would not have an AC input.

However, a transfer switch would have both a 50 amp input and output. Are you sure you do not want a transfer switch? Perhaps a transfer switch with a built in inverter?

The switch would switch to shore power if available and switch to the battery powered inverter when shore power is not available. The transfer switch might even have an additional input to connect a generator.


You should be able to run a microwave and air conditioner with 30 amp at 120 volts. This would be 3600 watts.


So you need an 3600 watt inverter and a transfer switch. What is the size of your shore power system? It is usually 30amp 120 volts or 50 amp 230 volts.

An inverter would not have an AC input.

Might want to check that statement professor.
