Sizes ranging from 600W small minimal appliance applications, 5kW full household load applications and 15kW 3 phase for farmstead/business applications. As well as everything in-between
An inverter is a device that converts battery power Direct Current (DC) into alternating current (AC) of a higher voltage. Inverters are installed as part of a solar system when a client wishes to run AC appliances such as a TV, fridge or lights.
The most common way inverters are used are when they are installed in an off grid installation where the appliance needing power to run will draw DC current which is stored in batteries through the inverter which changes the current to AC which the appliance can use.
Types of Inverters
You get two main types of inverters: Pure Sine Wave and Modified or Square Sine Wave
Pure Sine Wave inverter
You might not need it. It depends on what type of equipment you wish to operate from your inverter. One thing is sure: if you ONCE buy a quality sine wave inverter, you can connect ANY type of mains equipment later on. Square wave or modified sine wave inverters have their limitations. Square-wave or modified-sine wave inverters have the lowest cost and efficiency and are not manufactured by us. The price of the better quality sine wave inverters is low enough to make non-sine wave inverters an unattractive choice.Please read the following summary about different wave forms and their area of use.
Pure Sinewave inverter waveform = Mains outlet waveform , suitable for ALL appliances
In your home the wall outlet socket supplies 230voc to your household appliances. The waveform of this alternating current is sine wave (see picture above), Therefore most electrical equipment is originally designed to operate from a sine wave mains power source.
Non-sine wave inverters = NOT suitable for ALL appliances
Non-sine wave inverters, such as square wave of modified sine wave inverters can produce incorrect voltages which may cause the connected equipment to have operating difficulties or not run at all. Also, non-sine wave inverters produce high levels of harmonic distortion, which can cause electrical interference and audio hum (with TV, radio, etc.) as well as overheating the connected equipment (inductive motors).
Which household appliances require sine wave inverter?
It is highly recommended to run the following equipment only from a sinewave power source: TV, Radio, sensitive Audio or Video equipment, Measuring instruments, ALL inductive loads such as Refrigerators, Water pumps, Power tools, etc
