In Reply to: FEC 100 inverter posted by Muzzy on April 19, 2011 at 12:52:53:
The FEC runs at about 600 watts (5 amps x 120 volts). What is the power usage of the fans an stoker (proly not much)? Are they 12 volt DC fans (those can run straight off of the battery). Add the watts from the fans (if AC) and then double that figure for wattage of the power inverter. I am guessing that you want something in the 1000 to 1500 watt range.
As mentioned below, manually light the FEC. The power draw of the lighting element is way to high and you would need a really big inverter (plus you would use up all of your battery capacity just getting it lit).
You dont need a "sine wave" converter. Save your money and buy an extra battery.
