Inverter Capacity Tester

With this tester, you can assess the capacity of Inverter to handle the load. It gives a warning beep, if the inverter load exceeds above its load handling capacity. Inverters are available in different ‘Size ratings’ from 50 VA up to 50000 VA. VA indicates the ‘Size’ (capacity) of the inverter which represents its maximum load capacity. Commonly available inverters are 500 VA, 800 VA, 1000 VA, 1500 VA etc. An inverter needs Peak or Surge power and Typical or Average (Usual) power to handle the load. Peak power is the maximum power that an inverter can supply usually for short time. If the load increases above the rated capacity of the Inverter, it will over load the inverter that may leads to its permanent damage.

Inverter Selection

“My Inverter is not giving sufficient backup”. This is the most common complaint raised against the home inverter system. We expect maximum backup time from the inverter system with a tubular battery, but unfortunately we get half or less backup time than we expect. What is the reason for that? Before blaming the inverter, let us see what is happening.
