Power Inverters

Power Inverters

A power inverter converts 12V battery power into 120V AC power to operate standard household appliances such as microwave ovens, refrigerators, hair dryers, televisions, and satellite receivers. Inverters are available in many wattages to operate many different loads. Selecting and installing a medium or large sized power Inverter requires careful thought and planning to ensure proper, trouble free operation. The first step is figuring out your power usage and needs (Click for solar calculator). Talk to us at R.T.S. Solar Solutions about what Inverter type and wattage is right for you.

Modified Sine Wave

Modified Sine Inverters are usually available in wide ranges of wattage. They will operate most electrical devices. True Sine (or ‘pure sine’) Inverters are higher in cost and are available in wide ranges of watts as well. They will operate any electrical device exactly as intended. Inverters are also available with built-in battery chargers simplifying larger installations and improving performance. Use a standard 12V battery bank and a Modified Sine Wave Inverter to affordably power small appliances, office equipment, television, power tools and lighting systems.

Pure Sine Wave

Use a Pure Sine Wave Inverter together with a 12V battery or battery bank to power more sensitive loads. Advantages of pure sine wave power inverters include very low harmonic distortion, clean power the same as utility supplied electricity. Inductive loads like microwaves and motors run faster, quieter and cooler, reduced audible and electrical noise in fans, fluorescent lights, audio amplifiers, TV, fax and answering machines and preventing crashes in computers, weird print outs and glitches in monitors.
