My kite club has a power inverter they like to use when they’re out flying kites so that they can power a laptop to get weather conditions on it. It is like a mini generator that uses one source to power another. An early warning we heard about on the Internet helped us avoid an ugly storm a month or so ago. It could have been dicey up there in the wild blue yonder and we wouldn’t have had a clue. We could have had a jumble of messed up, torn to shred kites.
Fortunately, a club member with a power inverter in his car thought enough to bring it along so we could get the heads up on the weather. We had been told a storm was brewing the day before (we always like to check that out regularly), but a lot of times these ephemeral things just don’t materialize. We needed an actual bona fide update. With our club inverter, we could power his laptop and get real time reports. If we had been lazy about it, we would not have been able to avoid the coming storm. We were able to pack up our kites and gear in no time flat and make tracks for home.
The AIMS Power 7000 watt heavy duty power inverter he owns converts 24 volt dc to 240vac. This single phase power inverter is truly one of kind in case you are in the market. Currently this power inverter is being used in many different applications around the globe—not just in our little kite club. If you need a reliable source of 240Vac power, this dc to ac power inverter is the right choice for you, as it is for us.
Due to the design of this inverter, it has the ability to handle 240V AC well pumps that are run off grid. There are not many solutions available to supply power for water in remote areas. The AIMS Power 7000 watt 24 volt to 240v power inverter is built tough for daily use so the brochure says. You can count on this inverter, it is one of the most reliable 240V single phase inverters produced.
Also, this inverter is a truly global inverter as it has the ability to output either 60 Hz or 50 Hz. The model comes equipped with a select-able frequency switch making it ideal for European and African applications where 50 Hz is needed. I don’t think our club has such a trip planned, but we could if we wanted to! I was impressed enough to make mention of it.
Keep in mind if you need a split phase inverter, this unit will not support two legs of 120V AC. It will only run 240V devices, so if you need to support appliances or pumps in your off-grid house that run on 240V, this inverter will work great for you.
