DC TO AC POWER INVERTERS
Pure Sine Wave
Models for 24 VDC input or 12 VDC input
2000 Watts continuous, 115 VAC output
Some examples of devices and appliances requiring a pure sine inverter are:
CPAP machines with humidifiers
Variable speed tools
Cordless tool battery chargers
Modified Sine Wave
Models for 12 VDC input or 24 VDC Input
1700 Watts up to 2800 Watts continuous,
115 VAC output
Modified Sine Wave Inverters are simplier to produce so generally are less expensive than Pure Sine Inverters but using them does carry a risk. Some equipment may not work correctly or may be damaged.
There are only two types of electronics that you need to be concerned about when using a modified sine wave inverter: appliances that use AC motors and certain classes of delicate medical equipment such as
CPAP machines with humidifiers and oxygen concentrators.
