Minimizing Cost On High Wattage Inverters for Manufacturing

Most inverter applications involve the use of inverters whose energy output isn’t considered “high,” but industrial applications often pose a special case. Although some inverters in industrial environments serve particular pieces of equipment and are thus implemented based on the equipment’s wattage, it’s also common for an industrial inverter...

Buying Custom Power Inverters: Frequently Asked Questions

At first glance, custom power inverters and pre-designed power inverters can look roughly the same. But there’s often a significant difference in terms of construction materials, equipment certifications, and performance specifications, among other areas. If this is your first time shopping for custom power inverters, and you have some... [Read More]

3 Things That Make Inverters Fail & How to Prevent Them

After making a significant investment in an industrial grade true sine wave inverter, the company or organization that made the purchase expects the equipment to have a useful lifespan of several years. However, due to some types of extenuating circumstances, the expectation can be dashed soon after the inverter... [Read More]

DC to AC: Two Types of Inverters for Solar Installations

Scientists report that the sun will eventually “burn out”, gradually losing power until it becomes a piece of cinder in outer space. According to predictions, none of us will live to see that day, thankfully. What’s more, in the meantime, we have the opportunity to harness the sun’s power... [Read More]

Four Benefits of Using a Custom Inverter Manufacturer

If this is your first time shopping for a power inverter that changes direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC), there are two types of manufacturers to choose from: An inverter manufacturer that only produces stock equipment, and an inverter manufacturer that produces custom equipment in addition to equipment...

Equipment Housing for Custom Sine Wave Power Inverters

Sine wave power inverters are designed for various applications, but all inverters can be lumped into one of two categories: stock inverters that are designed with a broad range of user requirements in mind, and custom inverters that are tailored to address specific requirements. Sine wave power inverters can... [Read More]

DC to AC Power: Why is AC Used Instead of DC?

Two types of electrical current can be used to power electrical equipment: Direct Current (DC), which is characterized by the unidirectional flow of an electrical charge; and Alternating Current (AC), which is characterized by an electrical charge that can reverse directions. In Thomas Edison’s day, the power grid delivered... [Read More]

NEBS Certifications and What They Mean

Network Equipment-Building System (NEBS) certifications were developed by Bell Labs in the 1970s. One of the main goals of the certifications was to standardize electricity conduction equipment, such as power inverters, that is used in Regional Bell Operating Centers (RBOCs). Standardizing the equipment makes it easier to achieve proper... [Read More]

Tips for Buying True Sine Wave Inverters Economically

For companies and organizations that are committed to cutting costs to bolster the bottom line, buying industrial grade true sine wave inverters and acquiring them economically can be a delicate balance. It makes no sense to purchase low-price, low-capacity equipment that doesn’t meet their needs. At the same time,... [Read More]

Four Hidden Benefits of Rack Mount Inverter Accessories

Rack mount power inverters are similar to rack mount servers regarding how they’re typically positioned and the accessories needed to position them. The difference is that servers are usually mounted in a special cabinet made for that purpose, while power inverters may be mounted in numerous spaces in various... [Read More]
