Power Inverters

Here you will find our range of off grid power inverters. An off grid inverter is connected to a battery or battery bank and converts the direct current (DC) from the battery to alternating current (AC), the power from the battery can then be used for running most 230V electrical appliances. Modified Sine Wave Inverters work well with the majority of electrical appliances, however if you need to run more sensitive electronic equipment Pure Sine Wave (also know as True Sine Wave) are more suited.

Pure Sine Wave (also known as True Sine Wave) inverters generate an output voltage wave form that has a very low harmonic distortion like utility-supplied electricity. This means they are more suited for sensitive electronic equipment, allowing motors to run faster, quieter and cooler, preventing computer crashes, noises & glitches in monitors, TV, Game consoles etc in short a Pure Sine Wave Inverter will provide a reliable power source for all electronic appliances & devices.

Modified Sine Wave (also known as Quasi Sine Wave) Inverters work well with 80% of electronic items and are the most economical, they will work fine for pure resistive loads, like lamps or heaters. and will also work well with pure inductive loads, like universal motors in mixers and blenders, however if these devices have electronic speed control this could be damaged. Devices that have transformers in their power supplies, Microwave Ovens, TVs, Computers etc. will run hotter and less efficient.

Should you have any doubt about certain devices, tools or appliances we would recommend contacting the manufacturer to check if the item is compatible with a modified sine wave inverter alternatively choose a Pure Sine Wave instead.
