Inverters

What is the difference between a Pure Sine-wave Inverter a Modified Sine-wave Inverter?

The output voltage of a pure sine-wave inverter is continuously and smoothly changing between a minimum and maximum value with a single instance at which it reaches 0v during each half cycle.

Conversely a modified sine-wave output voltage jumps almost instantaneously between the minimum and maximum value and rests for a short period at 0v

Power supplied as a pure sine wave form is very similar to the power supplied by the electricity supply company, Eskom in our case.

 

Which Should I Use?

Because there are far fewer harmonics with a sine wave power supply compared to a square wave power supply, equipment typically runs cooler, quieter and more efficiently.This is not always noticeable with lighting with LED lighting for example but can be noticed with certain fluorescent lights.

These harmonics also tend to cause interference with TV pictures for example.

Anything with motors such as washing machines, fridges, pumps and fans etc. are often noticeably noisy when running on square wave of modified sine wave inverters.

If you want to be assured of complete flexibility with what you can run on your backup systems, a Pure Sine wave inverter would be the best choice. If you just want some Light and the TV during Load Shedding a Modified inverter is quite adequate.

Which devices are not suitable for use on a Modified Sine-wave Inverter?

Some other examples of devices that may not work properly with modified sine wave inverters include but are not limited to the following:

Battery Chargers
Ceiling fans with Speed Control
Certain RF intercom devices
Clock radios, alarm clocks, or devices with built in clocks.
Electric Razors
Fluorescent lights
Laser printers
Light dimmers
Photocopier
Sewing machines with microprocessor speed controls
Some types of Alarm sensors
