Modular inverters are made to withstand many adverse conditions when in operation. There are some conditions, however, that can harm your modular inverters. There are a few things that you should be on the lookout for if you plan on using industrial power inverters. If you know what to look for then you may save yourself a lot of time, trouble, and even money.
1 Airborne Contamination
For inverters, airborne contaminants aren’t typically in the form of solvents and dust. What you need to keep an eye out for are such things that can cause your inverter to start rusting or oxidizing from the inside out. It’s always optimal to know what types of conditions your new inverter needs in order to maintain it’s operation.
Modular inverters may end up sluggish if they are in use in colder areas. The temperature does matter when it comes to their use. If temperatures are extreme in heat; you may find that they will shut down in order to prevent heat damage. Knowing which inverter you need is highly important. If your inverter is going to need to withstand both hot or cold environments then you should look into a NEBS Level 3 inverter.
3 Custom and Non-Custom Products
It doesn’t come as a shock that custom made inverters are going to cost more than standard pre-manufactured inverters. Many customers tend to lean toward the cheaper inverters. This is not always a good thing. If your inverter isn’t designed to handle any of the adverse conditions that you may need to subject it to then you may find yourself needing to replace it. Buying a pre-manufactured inverter might seem like the best choice but it may end up costing you more in the long run if you need to keep replacing it instead of just spending a little more and buying an inverter that can stand up to the environment that it’s needed for. It’s always a great idea to discuss your options with the inverter manufacturers prior to your purchase. Talking to an expert could save you money.
