How Your Cobra Power Inverter Works

The Cobra Power Inverter is an electronic pro-
duct that has been designed and built to take
low voltage DC (Direct Current) power from your
automobile or other low voltage power supplies
and CONVERT it to standard 115 Volt AC
(Alternating Current) power like the current you
have in your home. This conversion process
thereby allows you to use many of your house-
hold appliances and electronic products in auto-
mobiles, RVs, boats, tractors, trucks and 
virtually anywhere else.

How to Use Your 
HG PI1000 Power Inverter

Caution: Rechargeable Appliances

Certain rechargers for small nickel cadmium bat-
teries can be damaged if connected to the Cobra
1000W inverter. Two particular types of equip-
ment are prone to this problem:

1. Small battery-operated appliances such as

flashlights, razors and night lights that can be
plugged directly into an AC receptacle to
recharge.

2. Certain battery chargers for battery packs used

in hand power tools. These charges have a
WARNING label stating that dangerous volt-
ages are present at the battery terminals.

This problem does not occur with the vast
majority of battery operated equipment. Most
use a separate charger or transformer that is
plugged into the AC receptacle and produces
a low voltage output. If the label on the AC
adapter or charger states that it produces a
low voltage AC or DC output (less that 30
volts) the inverter will have no problem 
powering it safely.

Caution: Rechargeable Appliances

2

To make the most of this inverter, it must be
installed and used properly. Please read the
installation and operating instructions carefully
before installing and using it. Special attention
must be paid to the CAUTION and WARNING
statements in the manual. CAUTION statements
specify conditions which could cause damage to
the unit or other equipment. WARNING state-
ments identify conditions that could result in
personal injury or loss of life.

Cobra 1000W Output Waveform

The output waveform is referred to as “square
wave” or “modified sine wave.” It is a stepped
waveform designed to have characteristics simi-
lar to the sine wave shape of utility power. A
waveform of this nature is suitable for most AC
loads (including linear and switching power sup-
pliers used in electronic equipment, transformers
and motors).

Testing

Test Load Power

Minimum Cable Size

100 w

#16 AWG copper

250 w

#12 AWG copper

500 w

# 8  AWG copper

The end of the cable that connects to the invert-
er must have its insulation stripped off for about
1/2 inch (1.25cm) back from the end, exposing
the bare copper.

The other end of the cable, which connects to

the power source, must be terminated with a lug
or other connector that provides a secure, low
resistance connection.

For example, if the power source is a battery, the
cable must be terminated with a battery terminal
that clamps to the post on the battery.

Connection

1. Turn the ON/OFF switch on the inverter to 

the OFF position.
If the power source is a DC power supply,
switch it off as well.

Quick Checkout

This section provides you with basic information
about the inverter and how to check its perfor-
mance before installation. Be sure to have the fol-
lowing on hand:

A 12 volt DC power source (such as a vehicle battery)

A set of cables to connect the power source to the inverter

A test load that can be plugged into the AC receptacle 
on the inverter

Power Source

The power source must provide between 11 and 15
volts DC and be able to supply enough current to
run the test load. As a rough guide, divide the
wattage of the test load by 10 to get the current (in
amperes) the power source must deliver.

Cables 

(included)

The cables must be as short and thick as possible
in order to reduce the voltage drop between the
power source and the inverter when it is drawing
current from the power source.

If the cable suffers an excessive voltage drop, the
inverter may shut down when drawing higher cur-
rents because the voltage at the inverter dropped
below 10 volts.

#4 AWG stranded copper cable is recommended. It
should be no longer than 1.5 meters (4 ft.). For
short term testing at a low power level, the 
following is recommended:

5. If a DC power supply is being used as the

power source, switch it On. Turn the ON/OFF
switch on the inverter to the On position.
Check the meters on the left side panel. The
voltage should indicate between 11 and 14
volts, depending on the voltage of the power
source.

6. Turn the inverter’s ON/OFF switch to the Off

position. The  indicator lights may blink and
the internal alarm may sound momentarily.
This is normal. Plug the test load into the AC
receptacle on the left side panel of the invert-
er. Leave the test load switched Off.

7. Switch the inverter’s ON/OFF switch to the On

position and turn the test load On. The inverter
should supply power to the load.

If it does not, please consult the troubleshoot-
ing section in this manual.

Connection

2. Connect the cables to the power input termi-

nals on right side panel of the inverter. The red
terminal is positive (+) and the black terminal
is negative (-). Insert the bare ends of the
cables into the terminals and tighten the
screws to clamp the wires safely.

3. Connect the cable from the negative (black)

terminal of inverter to the negative terminal of
the power source. Make a secure connection.

All power connections to your Cobra inverter
must be positive to positive and negative to
negative.

4. Connect the cable from the positive (red) termi-

nal of the inverter to the positive terminal of
the power source. Make a secure connection.

CAUTION:

Loosely tightened

connectors can cause exces-

sive voltage drops and may

result in overheated wires and

melted insulation.

CAUTION:

A reverse polarity

connection (positive to nega-

tive) will blow the fuse in the

inverter and may permanently

damage the unit.

CAUTION:

Remove any jewel-

ry (watch, ring etc.). Be careful

not to short circuit the battery

with any metallic object

(wrench, etc.).

Connection

WARNING:

You may observe a

spark when making the con-

nection because current can

flow to charge the capacitors

in the inverter.

Do not make

this connection in the pres-

ence of flammable fumes.

Explosion or fire may result.

Mounting

Mount the inverter on a flat surface placing the
mounting bracket on the bottom. Mounting
hardware should be corrosion resistant and at
least #10 or larger. The inverter can be mounted
horizontally or vertically.

Cables

(included)

Power wire and wiring is very important to the
performance of the inverter. Because the inverter
has a low voltage, high current input, low resis-
tance wiring is essential between the battery and
inverter. This is so it can deliver the maximum
amount of energy to the load.

Use only copper wire. Aluminum wire has about
1/3 more resistance than copper wire of the
same size plus it is difficult to make good, low-
resistance connections to aluminum wire.

We recommend #4 copper cable (90° C insulation
rating) as the minimum size for connections
between the battery and inverter.

Keep the cable length as short as possible, no
more than 4 ft. (1.5  meters). This will keep the
voltage drop to a minimum.

Mounting

CAUTION:

The inverter must

only be connected to batteries
with a nominal output voltage
of 12 volts. It will not work with
a 6 volt battery, and will be
damaged if it is connected to 
a 16 volt battery.

WARNING:

If you are making a

permanent AC connection to
the inverter, make sure that the
AC wiring steps are performed
before any DC wiring is done.
(DC hook-up energizes internal
components, regardless of the
position of the ON/OFF switch).
Working on AC connections in
such a circumstance may result
in an electric shock.

WARNING:

115 Volt AC power is

potentially lethal. Do not work
on AC wiring when it is connect-
ed to the inverter (even if it is
switched off) unless the DC
power source is physically dis-
connected from the inverter.
Also, do not work on AC wiring
if it is connected to another AC
power source such as a genera-
tor or the utility line.

Mounting/Cables

Installation

The inverter must be installed in an area that
meets all of the following requirements:

A. Dry- Do not place in an area where water can

drip or splash on the inverter.

B. Cool- Ambient air temperature should be

between 30° F and 105° F (0° C and 40° C).
The cooler the better.

C. Ventilate- Allow at least 1 inch (3cm) of clear-

ance around the  inverter for proper airflow.
Make sure that ventilation openings on the
ends of the unit are not obstructed.

D. Safe- Do not install the inverter in the same

compartment as a battery or in any compart-
ment that contains flammable liquids such 
as gasoline.

E. Close to battery- Install unit as close to bat-

tery as possible (without being in the same
compartment) to minimize the length of
cable required to connect the inverter to the
battery. It is better and cheaper to run longer
AC wires than longer DC wires (cables).

Installation

CAUTION:

To avoid fire, do not

cover or obstruct ventilation
openings. Do not install invert-
er in a zero-clearance com-
partment. Overheating may
result.

WARNING:

This unit contains

components which can pro-
duce arcs or sparks. To prevent
fire or explosion, do not install
in compartments containing a
battery or flammable mater-
ials, or in a location which
requires ignition protected
equipment.

Installation

Ground Wiring

There is a screw on the rear panel labeled Chassis
Ground. This is to connect the chassis of the
inverter to ground. The ground terminal in the AC
outlet on the right side panel of the inverter is
connected to the chassis.

The Chassis Ground screw must be connected to
a grounding point, which will vary depending on
where the unit is installed. Use a #8 AWG copper
wire (preferably with green/yellow insulation) to
connect the chassis ground screw to the ground-
ing point.

• In a vehicle, connect the Chassis Ground to the

chassis of the vehicle.

• In a boat, connect to the boat grounding 

system.

• In a fixed location, connect the Chassis Ground

screw to earth ground by connecting to a
ground rod (a metal rod pounded  into the
earth) or other proper service entrance
ground.

Ground
Wiring

Warning:

Do not operate the

inverter without connecting it

to ground. Electrical shock

hazard may result.

Ground Wiring

10

If the cable has too much voltage drop, the
inverter may shut down when drawing higher
currents because voltage at the inverter may
drop below 10 volts. If you must use longer
cables choose thicker cables, such as #2 AWG,
and trim the ends of the cable to fit the terminals.

Strip back the insulation about 1/2 inch (1.25cm)
on the end of the cable that connects to the
inverter, exposing the bare cooper conductor.
The other end of the cable that connects to bat-
tery must be terminated with a battery terminal
that clamps to the post on the battery.

CAUTION:

Electrical installa-

tions must meet local and

national wiring codes, and

should be performed by a

qualified electrician.

CAUTION:

Do not connect the

inverter and another AC source

(such as a generator or utility

power) to the AC wiring at the

same time. The inverter will be

damaged if its output is con-

nected to AC voltage from

another source. Damage can

even occur if the inverter is

switched Off.

CAUTION:

Do not connect the

inverter to an AC branch circuit

that has high-power  con-

sumption loads. It will not

operate electric heaters, air

conditioners, stoves, and other

electrical appliances that con-

sume more than 1000 watts.

5. Connect the cable from the positive terminal

of the inverter to the positive terminal of the
battery’s main fuse, or to the battery selector
switch, if you are using one. Make a secure
connection.

You might observe a spark when you make this
connection since current can flow to charge
capacitors in the inverter.

Operation.

Turn the inverter On by using the ON/OFF switch
on the left side panel .

The inverter is now ready to deliver AC power to
your loads. If several loads are to be operated by
the inverter, turn them on separately, after the
inverter has been turned On. This will ensure that
the inverter does not have to deliver the starting
currents required for all the loads at once.

WARNING:

Do not make this

connection in  the presence of

flammable fumes. Explosion or

fire may result. Thoroughly

ventilate the battery compart-

ment before making this con-

nection.

DC Wiring

12

DC Wiring

1. Be sure the ON/OFF switch on the inverter is

in the OFF position.

2. Connect the cables to the power input termi-

nals on the rear panel of the inverter. The red
terminal is positive (+) and the black terminal
is negative (-). Insert the bare ends of the
cables into the terminals and tighten the
screws to clamp the wires securely.

3. Connect the cable from the negative terminal

of the inverter to the negative terminal of the
battery. Make a secure connection.

4. Double check that the cable you just installed

connects the negative terminal of the invert-
er to the negative terminal of the battery.
Power connections to the inverter must be
positive to positive and negative to negative.

DC Wiring

CAUTION:

Loosely tightened

connectors result in excessive

voltage drop and may cause

over heated wires and melted

insulation.

CAUTION:

Reverse polarity

connections (positive to nega-

tive) will blow external fuses in

the inverter and may perma-

nently damage the unit. Such

damage is not covered by the

warranty.

CAUTION:

We recommend a

main fuse in the battery’s posi-

tive cable to protect against

DC wiring short circuits (exter-

nal to the inverter). The fuse

should be as close to the bat-

tery as possible. We recom-

mend a Buss Fuse ANL-250 or

equivalent. The specific fuse

ampere rating should be sized

to allow operation of all your

DC powered equipment.

DC Wiring

The inverter will operate most AC loads within its
power rating. Some induction motors used in freez-
ers, pumps and other motor-operated equipment
require very high surge currents to start.The invert-
er may not be able to start some of these motors
even though their rated current draw is within the
inverter’s limits.The inverter will normally start sin-
gle phase induction motors rated at 1/2 HP or less.

Input Voltage

The inverter will operate from input voltage rang-
ing from 10 volts to 15 volts. Optimum perfor-
mance will occur when the voltage is between 12
volts and 14 volts. If the voltage drops below
10.5+/-0.3V volts, an audible low battery warning
will sound. The inverter will shut down if the
input voltage drops below 9.5V+/-0.3V volts. This
protects the battery from being over-discharged.
It will restart when the input voltage exceeds
10.5V+/-0.3V volts.

The inverter will also shut down if the input volt-
age falls to 15.75V +/- 0.75V. This protects the
inverter against excessive input voltage.
Although the inverter has protection against
over-voltage, it may still be damaged if the input
voltage were to exceeds 16 volts.

Operating Limits

14

ON/OFF Switch 

Turns the control circuit in the inverter On and Off.

It does not 

disconnect power from the inverter.

When the switch is in the Off position, the inverter
draws no current from the battery. When it’s in the
On position, but no power is being supplied to the
load, the inverter draws less than 500 milliamperes
from the battery. This is low current draw. It would
take more than a week to discharge a 100 ampere-
hour battery at this rate.

Don’t worry about excessive drain on the battery if
you leave the inverter switched On for a few days.
However, do switch it off if you are not planning be
recharge the battery within a week or so.

Power Output

The inverter will deliver 1000 watts continuously. It
can deliver 1200 watts for about 30 minutes.The
inverter must cool for 15 minutes before it can
resume operation at 1000 watts. Note: The wattage
rating applies to resistive loads.

For each piece of equipment you will be operat-
ing from the inverter you must determine the
battery’s capacity (how long the battery can
deliver a specific amount of current—in automo-
tive batteries, usually 25 amperes). For example, a
battery with a reserve capacity of 180 minutes
can deliver 25 amperes for 180 minutes before it
is completely discharged.

Calculate the total watt-hours of energy con-
sumption (power x operating time). To determine
how many 12 volt ampere hours will be con-
sumed divide the watt hours by ten.
