Industrial power inverters. They come in various shapes and sizes, but all serve the same purpose of protecting your expensive equipment from power fluctuations.
While they are all designed to work in adverse industrial working conditions, there are a few mistakes you can avoid to ensure they remain protected in these conditions too.
1. Mistake #1: Not keeping workplace temperature in mind.
The work area temperature has a huge impact on the performance of modular inverters. They tend to work slowly in cold areas while there is a risk of the equipment shutting down in very hot working conditions to avoid potential heat damage.
This is why it’s important you know the working area temperature well in advance to ensure your chosen unit can work in your hot or cold working environment.
2. Mistake #2: Forgetting airborne contaminants.
Not everyone knows how harmful airborne contaminants are to industrial power inverters. Some can get damaged by things that make them oxidize or rust from the inside until the rust reaches the outer barrier. While you can’t prevent contaminants much, you can at least maintain your inverters and keep them clean for optimal working efficiency.
3. Mistake #3: Choosing wrongly between custom or pre-manufactured inverters.
There are differences between custom and pre-manufactured inverters and you have to choose and buy the one befitting your industrial equipment needs. Yes, it is true that custom industrial power inverters are expensive to buy.
However, they do compensate on costs with its reduced overall running costs. They are better for industrial use because they are built to withstand adverse industrial working conditions.
Unlike the pre-manufactured inverters, there is no worry about custom inverter parts giving out quickly. Besides, they are designed to handle huge and variable industrial level power fluctuations.
