Provide a purer form of power than modified sine wave inverters. The power from these units is similar to that supplied by Eskom. It and enables devices such as microwave ovens, game consoles, fans and fluorescent lights to run quietly without distortion or disturbance. This also ensure that computers run smoothly and without overheating.
Pure sine wave Inverters are also safe and stable and operate in a number of unfavourable conditions, such as excessively high or low temperatures and over and under-voltage. Their performance is the best across a wide range of applications and devices.
These are best Inverters and team op well with quality solar panels from BHG Power Storage Solutions. This will see you well on your way to sustainable living.

The ones that have transformers in is also robust and tend to give less problems.
The inverter size you choose depends on the power in watts of the appliance/equipment you want to run. You can find the power consumption by referring to the specification plate on the appliance. You can also find the information in the appliance manual. If this information is not available, check with the appliance supplier.
Multiply the equipment/appliance WATTS x 3 = peak/surge watts (approximate)
For exsample if you want to run an appliance with a continuous load of 5 Amps and a peak load of 15 Amps:
Power: V x I = VA i.e. 230VAC x 5A = 1150 Watts continuous power
Power: V x I = VA i.e. 230VAC x 15A = 3450 Watts peak/surge (also known as start or inrush current)
You would need an inverter with a continuous rating of approximately 1500 watts and with a peak/surge rating of approximately 3500 watts. It is always advisable to build in a safety factor by overrating the continuous rating by 20 – 25%.
