In this section you find our selection of compact voltage inverters. We offer sinosoidal voltage inverters as well as inverters with modified sine wave. These inverters supply you with 230V 50Hz energy which can be used instantly thanks to the integrated Schuko-plug (type-F plug). These inverters convert 12V, 24V and 48V to 230V.
Things worth knowing about a 12V 24V - 230V inverter
Inverters 12V - 230V have the ability to convert not only voltage but also the kind of electrical current. A 12V - 230V inverter converts a 12V DC current into a 230V AC current.
Structure and function of a 12V 24V 230V island inverter
Generally spoken the structure of an inverter is similar to any kind of transformer. Every inverter has two coils. Every coil is wrapped with isolated copper wire. The transformation of a current from one coil to the other is done by induction between the coils' cores. This transformation depends on the number and the ratio of windings. Windings on the first coils are called primary windings - the ones on the second coil secondary windings. The copper winding of the secondary coil ends with an ohmic resistor (load resistor). Inverters are designed to ensure that there are only a slight phase shift in the current during transformation. The internal compensation ensures effective and reactive power during the conversion of a DC into an AC current.
Quality characteristics of an inverter
Usually inverters are divided into three categories which allow an overview of quality and price. They are defined based on their frequency - square sine, quasi sine and pure sine wave. Sine-wave inverters imitate an natural AC current the best. The complex electronics of course lead to a higher price. For many applications an inverter with a modified sine-wave is sufficient. However, be cautious with inductive loads as not every inverter is suitable. For the start and start-up phase of electric motors up to ten times higher amperages are needed. If there is only a pure ohmic resistor used as consumer instead there are no problems. The heat of electric kettles or coffee machines is produced with help of ohmic resistors (heating wires). The waveform should also be unimportant with such consumers. The capacity of the used battery (usually a car battery) is the important factor.
The evaluated performance of the appliances is normally indipendent from the voltage - the performance data stay the same with every voltage. If you want to buy an inverter the needed power should be considered - simply sum up the total watts of the consumers that you want to run at the same time.
