Industrial Power Outages: Using Solar Panels With Inverters

If there is ever a time when we appreciate how much we depend on the electrical grid for industrial power, it’s during an electrical power outage. According to a 2017 report from Diesel Service & Supply — a longtime supplier of industrial power generators and related hardware — “The... [Read More]

Inverter Maintenance: Inverter Manufacturers vs. Third Parties

Compared to many types of complex electrical equipment, industrial power inverters are fairly easy to maintain. Remove a few screws and lift away the rigid equipment housing, and you have a relatively small piece of equipment you can place on a tabletop to perform the maintenance operation. However, while...

4 Simple Ways to Tell Inverter Manufacturers Apart

There are hundreds of inverter manufacturers in the U.S. alone, and they all manufacture power inverters. Is there a difference between the companies, or do they simply saturate the inverter market and try to mop up as many sales as possible? As it turns out, there are quite a... [Read More]

4 Reasons for Imperfect Part Fitment With Modular Inverters

The phrase “perfect parts fitment” refers to equipment whose parts are in precisely the correct position, right down to the smallest unit of part fitment measurement. When you order modular inverters from Exeltech, every component of the equipment is positioned as it should be. But how do you make... [Read More]

Can You Sell Surplus Industrial Power to the Electric Company?

Each month, your organization receives a utility bill from the electric company. Wouldn’t it be nice to receive a check instead? Hypothetically, that’s what can happen when you generate surplus electricity, and form a contract with the electric company to buy the power. The federal government requires utilities in...

The Importance of NEBS Level 3 Certification

Some inverter manufacturers produce inverters for environments that don’t involve adverse operating conditions. At organizations large and small, you’ll find inverters in places such as electrical closets, along production lines, in data center workstations (where they connect to uninterruptible power supplies), and other areas that don’t put a significant...

Maintaining Modular Inverters: Is IPA a Good Solvent?

Modular inverters are reminiscent to blade servers you slip into a large chassis that has multiple server slots. As with servers, one of the main benefits of deploying modular inverters on this model is they can be inserted in the chassis to scale up capacity. Instead of buying a... [Read More]

Tips for Assessing Inverter Reliability

Wouldn’t it be nice to know that your trusty industrial power inverter was about to experience a failure, and correct the problem before the inverter crashed? Using the four industrial power inverter assessment strategies below can help you do exactly this. However, before you use any of these strategies... [Read More]
