In the past, Behlman rated the power output of the INV-1200 inverter as 1200 volt-amperes, which required some users to do the math to come up with output Watts. Now, with the new INV-1200 Gen 2 inverters, there is a 25 percent increase in output power.

Other features of the upgraded INV-1200 inverter include sine wave output; low total harmonic distortion; overload protection; line and load regulation; short circuit and thermal protection; optional bypass with alarms; and LEDs for DC in and inverter OK.
