WAECO sine wave inverters generate a pure sine wave alternating current from a 12- or 24-volt battery current. These are especially suited for electric consumers that are sensitive to fluctuations in the onboard power supply, and also for power-intensive consumers. The new generation, with models providing a continuous power from 700 watts up, meets industry standards and was designed for the very highest demands. Due to the use of special materials, these units are amazingly lightweight. The 1500-watt sine wave inverter, for instance, weighs just 4800 g. In addition, the inverters feature an energy saving mode that automatically switches the units to “low power” as soon as there are no 230-volt consumers being operated. Sine wave inverters are permanently connected to the battery. For extra comfort and convenience, a remote control is available as optional extra. Battery friendly power supply is ensured by the VS-230 mains priority circuit, yet another optional extra useful to have.
