The inverter is an electronic device that converts direct current into alternating current, at a certain power rating of over 500 Watts.
Digimax’s inverter are of two types:
- Pure wave: suitable for any type of load capable of reproducing a wave equal to that of the home network;
- Modified wave: suitable for resistive and capacitive loads.
You can adjust its frequency, thus having inverter:
- At costant frequency: the line voltage is rectified to direct current at a level compatible wih the internal battery;
- At variable frequency: apparatus that drives an electric motor by varying the frequency of its power supply by adjusting the speed of three-phase motors.
The reasons for adjusting the frequency of an inverter are varied, including: saving energy thus improving the efficiency of the equipment and reducing noise levels.
To know how an inverter works, it is useful initially to understand how a transformer works: an electrical machine that converts mechanical energy into electrical energy in the form of alternating current induced in a wire coil in which the magnetic field is produced by another (primary) coil with alternating current flowing through it. Both coils have alternating current flowing through them producing a magnetic field. If alternating current is run through the primary coil and made to change direction quickly and continuously then it will be called an inverter.
