Power inverters (devices that convert standard battery DC DC voltages into AC) are becoming more common in transportation industries such as trucks and automobiles. But there are also concerns that the inverter could damage the car\'s electrical equipment.

The fact is, if the correct inverter installation specifications are followed, the inverter will cause little damage to the automotive electrical system. The key is to do your homework ahead of time and choose a high quality inverter suitable for your car from a large number of products.


The following are common problems in purchasing inverters for trucks:

1. What specification of inverter is required?

This requires you to choose according to the power use of the car\'s own electrical equipment.

Each device will be marked with rated power. For the inverter specification, we suggest adding the rated power of the equipment to be used and increasing it by 20%. For example, microwave oven rated at 1000 watts, TV rated at 300 watts, laptop rated at 100 watts, in this case, the best choice for the inverter 1400+1400*20%=1680 watts above.


2. Power type: pure sine wave or modified sine wave.

Both can work well in a truck environment, and pure sine waves are relatively better. Pure sine wave inverters with refrigerators, TVs and radios have no interference and noise, and have little impact on the performance and life of load equipment.

3. Whether external display screen is necessary.

A truck inverter with an external display screen would be better. When you put the inverter in the back seat or in the trunk, you can put the external display screen in the driver\'s seat to monitor the inverter status in real time. Xindun DP series pv inverter is equipped with external display screen, and the power is optional from 1KW to 7KW, which can basically meet the needs of daily electrical appliances.
