    I think the cotec inverters are the same as Samlex but not 100% sure. :Dsolarvic:D

    They are on Samlex's website, so I assume they are made by them. In their brochure, they list the Cotek and a heavier duty compared to the Samlex. I am looking at the Samlex PST-1500-24.

    It looks like Cotek is the manufacturer as they have been around since 1986 and Samlex came on the scene in 1991..
    Samlex and Meanwell have overlapping products too.

    add' strangely you have to go thru the Canadian page to get non Chinese character pages. Go figure?

    I Got a brand new Cotek pure sine wave inverter off of e-bay for 275.00 still wrapped in plastic. It is top quality stuff and must be made by samlex because everything is identical to the samlex. Just thought you guys would like an update.

    Let us know if the specs pan out - does it handle the wattage and surge ratings it claims?
