Pure Sine Inverters

Pure Sine Power Inverters

When shopping for a marine inverter, RV inverters and car inverters it is important to note that there are two basic types of inverters on the market. Understanding the differences and pros and cons of each of these inverters is important in order to make certain you purchase the type of inverter that will best suit your needs.


The two basic types of inverters include:
  • Pure sine wave inverters
  • Modified sine wave inverters

Pure sine power inverters produce cleaner power than a modified sine power inverter, and our line of pure sine models will cover all the complex electronics that are part of our everyday lives. A pure sine wave will replicate the kind of the power you get from utility grid, providing a wide range of benefits. This kind of clean power will allow electronics to run more efficiently than they might on modified sine wave DC to AC inverters.

Devices that require a pure sine power inverter. include: variable speed motors or power tools, televisions, laser printers, computers and telecommunications equipment, and many medical devices such as most CPAP machines. Without a clean power sources, these types of devices simply will not run, or you may risk shortening their lifespan and causing them to fail prematurely.

At TheInverterStore.com we offer a wide range of pure sine inverters, including three different DC input voltages (12, 24, and 48 volt inverters). Our selection of output voltages includes single phase 120 vac 60hz and 240 vac 60hz models, and we also offer a split phase pure sine power inverter that is available in 10000 watts, 120/240 60hz split phase output and 24 volt DC input.

Whether you are looking for power inverters for cars, trucks, or RVs, TheInverterStore.com has the pure sine inverter for your needs. We offer power inverters with built-in chargers and transfer switches, and both our 1500 watt and 3000 watt inverter chargers are available in pure sine wave.

From 180 watt power inverters to the serious 5000 watt power inverters, many of our pure sine power inverters are ETL listed to UL standard 458, and at TheInverterStore.com we are committed to helping you get the devices you really need. Order yours today and discover the difference pure sine wave inverters can make.

Pure Sine Power Inverter


The pure sine inverter, which is also referred to as a "true" sine wave, utilizes sine wave in order to provide your appliances with power. A sine wave, which is produced by rotating AC machinery, is the type of wave that is generally provided by the utility company with the help of a generator.

The benefits of using a pure sine wave inverter include:

  • All equipment currently on the market is designed for use with sine waves.
  • Some appliances, particularly microwaves and variable speed motors, will not produce full output if they do not use sine wave power.
  • Some appliances, such as light dimmers and bread makers, will not work at all without sine wave power.

On the downside, pure sine wave inverters are more expensive than the other two types of inverters. By looking out for discount inverters that are on sale, however, you can keep your costs down.

Modified Sine Power Inverter


The modified sine inverter is different from a pure sine power inverter because the wave is in more of a step wave and because appliances are not specifically designed to work with this type of inverter. Although many appliances will still work with a modified sine inverter, some may not work as efficiently. As such, it may take more power to run appliances with a modified sine inverter.

Using fluorescent lighting can be problematic when using modified sine power inverters. For example, they may not get as bright and some may make buzzing noises when on. Certain appliances with digital clocks or electronic timers may also work improperly with this type of inverter because the waves are rougher and cause extra "noise" to be created in the line. Furthermore, appliances that use electronic temperature controls will not be able to properly control the temperature when using modified sine wave marine inverters, RV inverters or car inverters.
