    Post How do I hook up an inverter?

    Are there data sheets for these things - is it anything special. I can't come up with anything. I've seen several data sheets (not for my type) that show V+, V-, Control, NC. What do these match up to if I just want to hook it to a 12V DC source? Any direction would be helpful. Thanks.

    I have a JRC NJD-4280 UA0392p01

    It has 7 wires on its input - how in the world do I figure out which is which to power this up?

    Beats me. V+ and V-? Most inverters only have two inputs. Positive and negative.

    Most should have at least 4 pins. My sharp inverter was a 5 pin input.

    1) +12VDC
    2) ground
    3) N/C
    4) Control
    5) Control

    So 4 and 5 I put a pot on to adjust the voltage.. and then obviously 2 pin-outs for the AC voltage.

    I'm not sure why there would be 7 pins. Are they all used?

    I can identify two for the pot, that leaves 5. They are all used as well. By the way, this may be dumb, but what is N/C?

    I think it means not connected or not used.

    These guys sell that inverter and service laptops, maybe if you drop them an email they'll send you some documentation or at least tell you the pinout.

    Thanks - I have actually begged every person who retails this piece I could find - no one could help me.
