In recent times, we have received many enquiries from people who have installed a solar electrical system in their home or office and then mysteriously lost reception for their TV or AM radio.
This can be an unfortunate consequence of installing an inverter...but there is a solution!
An inverter is an electrical device that converts direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC). The converted AC can be at any required voltage and frequency with the use of appropriate transformers, switching, and control circuits.
