• 5000W continuous output to power a range of household appliances
• Modified sinewave output
• Two 240VAC output sockets to power several devices without additional converters
• 12VDC input from the battery using included alligator clips
• Weighing 10.8kg, the rugged mountable design (500 x 169 x 152mm) allows the inverter to be positioned out of the way
• Shutdown protection against power overloadWhat is an inverter?
An inverter is a converter that connects to a sealed lead acid (SLA) battery that is usually connected to a car, a truck or a solar panel. The inverter can connect to the battery either through a car accessory plug or by clipping directly to the battery. A mains powered device can then be plugged directly into the inverter’s AC socket. Inverters vary in capacity and can power devices of up to a specific wattage. Inverters can be split into two categories: pure sinewave and modified sinewave.
What makes this inverter unique?
This inverter connects directly to the car battery using the included alligator clips. The inverter has been designed so that it can be mounted out of the way while powering your devices. The twin mains sockets allow you to power several devices at the same time up to 5000W such as a microwave, a halogen heater or a television, allowing you to take your home comforts camping. It is highly efficient, converting over 85% of its energy into output power. The inverter includes shutdown protection to power down the inverter if the battery power drops below a certain level.
What is the difference between pure sinewave and modified sinewave?
All household mains sockets output a sinewave along the cable to transfer power from the source, such as the battery or plug to the product that is plugged in. This product is a modified sinewave inverter which produces a stepped approximation of a pure sinewave inverter which makes it easier to produce. A modified sinewave inverter can power devices such as laptops, printers and chargers, although some items may pick up interference from the inverter. A solution for this is to upgrade to a pure sinewave inverter, such as these. A pure sinewave inverter is used to power sensitive electronic devices such as power motors, power tools, clocks or microwaves.
