Re: Setec Vehicle-to-Load 6 kW Discharge Inverter

Leftie - you could try using the Setec with a center tapped transformer - a good match is actually the APC/Schneider SURT 003. I've thought of doing that, but right now I have my propane genset hooked up until the dcbel system gets resolved as I want solar inputs also. Note that the transformer input is a single phase 220/240 VAC L6-30P and one of the outputs is a NEMA 14-30R with separate neutrals/grounds that match standard US split phase systems (along with a bunch of 120 VAC 3-prong outlets).

This is the downside of split phase US power - will need a 100 pound, but efficient transformer and ramp up the voltage to the max stable value of the Setec. I agree, the unit might be the only, but maybe not the best solution right now.

Re: Setec Vehicle-to-Load 6 kW Discharge Inverter

Unfortunately, the price of the Setec alone would only be within my reach if the winning bid was near the opening bid. The cost of the transformer unit would break my bank - too many other things I need to spend money on right now. Good luck with the auction.

Re: Setec Vehicle-to-Load 6 kW Discharge Inverter

Thanks Mark & Leftie for the comments and suggestions. I decided to cancel the auction, replace the receptacle with a NEMA 6-50R, and then see about selling the Setec together with the Leaf locally. I think the ultimate buyer of this will just want V2L for emergencies or remote power supply at 120V, using the included step-down transformer. In hindsight I probalby should have gotten the 120V version @ 3kW from Setec.
