Inverters provide uninterrupted power supplies at home and in the office. They keep you feeling comfortable with the AC and fan functioning even during power outages. Industrial power inverters minimize downtime by ensuring continuous power. However, all this is possible only if you know how to safely use your industrial power inverters.
Turn the engine on every hour
If you plan to continuously use inverters in a vehicle that’s not turned on, make sure the engine is run for at least 10-15 minutes every hour. This helps prevent the battery from running down. Never start a vehicle in a closed garage because the carbon monoxide produced is very dangerous.
Use fully charged batteries
Always use modular inverters with fully charged batteries that are in good condition. This is necessary because there is a risk of a weak battery quickly draining if there is a high demand for power.
For example, there’s a risk of the driver ending up stranded if this happens in the car. In short, it’s better to check the battery’s condition before using inverters in a stationary vehicle. A good condition battery will not present much of a problem with the extra draw even if used in running cars on a road trip.
The larger batteries of industrial power inverters should be used safely and properly lest they lead to serious injuries and possible electrocution. This is why anyone trying to hook an inverter directly to a battery should do so only after first reading and following the inverter’s precautionary measures that are listed in its instruction booklet.
