- 230 Volts on board! -
Who wants to go on board without their laptop these days? Installing a microwave on board makes cooking at sea not only a pleasure, but it also greatly contributes to safety on board as well. Even if your yacht has a built-in generator, an inverter with an appropriately sized switching station can take over the short-term operation of these devices.
1. Trapezoidal inverters:
The "check values" are well suited for simple devices without microelectronics. Sensitive devices such as washers, dryers, DVD player or plasma TV can be damaged by simplified "dirty" sine curves.
2. Sine wave inverters:
These units have "clean" sine curves and are suitable for almost all devices. Devices with a high inrush current, such as pumps, refrigerators, compressors, etc. require 10-20-fold higher invertion power than the nominal power specified on the devices.
During assembly, it is essential to ensure the use of adequately sized cable cross-sections. The 12V / 24V connection cable to the inverter should be twisted together, in order to avoid disturbances in the electrical system.
With a fixed installation, operation is recommended with a remote control, and for security reasons, you should install an automatic switching station on all devices without priority circuits.
