Explaining Pure Sine Wave Inverters

It is time to think about pure sine wave inverters when you require efficiency. A pure sine wave inverter offers two things – these include the powering of devices effectively by using alternating current input without having to correct it first and offering power to devices that experience interference (radios are a perfect example). 

It is essential to know that there are real differences between sine wave inverters and modified sine wave inverters as this will avoid confusion and problems arising. 

Ask yourself these questions regarding pure sine wave inverters: 

  • Does the device use a motor? 
  • Is your device delicate and is it used for medical purposes? 
  • Can the device in question be powered by a DC adapter and does it use a rectifier? 

If your device uses a motor and is delicate, particularly if it is medical equipment, chances are that you will need to invest in a pure sine wave inverter, but if your device is powered by a DC adapter and uses a rectifier, then chances are high that you won’t need to invest in a pure sine wave inverter. 

In most instances, a modified sine wave inverter will apply to most devices and circumstances but be aware that there will be some instances where modified sine wave inverters could damage your devices or not be adequate.  

The most common devices that use pure sine wave inverters will be your usual AC motors such as compressors, microwaves, AC motors amongst others. Pure sine wave inverters will work in most applications although they might not always be as effective which could cause them to overheat and could damage sensitive electronics. 

For businesses that have the budget for investing in the future of installations and to have peace of mind, investing in a pure sine wave inverter would prove to be a good investment. 

The inverter will work perfectly in applications even where the need for a pure sine wave inverter is not necessary.
