You have industrial power inverters to ensure a continual power supply for your equipment and in the process, avoid any unnecessary downtime. However, did you know that the very inverters that your equipment depends on may sometimes have problems?
1. Backup time is shorter than usual
One such problem is a short backup time, which can be caused by excessive power consumption. The ideal solution you have in this situation is to get rid of the excess load.
Another reason for a shortened backup time is an improperly charged battery. The remedy here is obviously to charge your battery. Sometimes, the loss of electrolytes in the battery shortens the battery’s backup time. You can rectify the problem by always maintaining the battery’s distilled water level between the maximum and minimum water limits.
2. The inverter runs on only the inverter mode
Sometimes, industrial power inverters may function only in the inverter mode. This is usually because of a disconnected power cable or melted fuse. Checking and reconnecting the power cable, and replacing the fuse respectively, resolves the problem.
If the inverter runs only on inverter mode because of an effective input protector, it has to be reset. Input protectors are protector circuits that protect the inverter in high voltage conditions.
Other probable causes for the inverter not functioning in power mode are low or high input. If it’s low input, it’s because the inverter doesn’t switch to the main power supply. It then has no option but to work only in inverter mode.
If you notice that your inverters tend to regularly run on inverter mode, it’s better to invest in a wide-ranged UPS and a good stabilizer. This can help ensure the inverter also runs in power mode.
