The latest in industrial inverters


Industrial inverters are available in a wide range, and are used in sectors like telecommunications, manufacturing units, railways, etc. Today, most of the inverter companies are moving towards greener products, and are making inverters that are powered by solar and other alternative energy sources as well. Inverters are now being designed with heavy duty chargers capable of working 24 hours, even in extreme environments. These inverters are being customised in the areas of battery backup, ratings and even voltage. Let’s take a look at some of the recently launched industrial inverters.
