Defined about Long Island Emergency Power

The engine must operate at or near the same speed all of the time to provide the right electrical frequency (Hz). This is not only wasteful of power, but the energy is also not as ‘clean’ as a standard household supply. The best way to explain your home’s electrical supply is ‘pure sine wave.’ This wave has a smooth, rolling profile. A ‘modified sine wave’ is present in the generator just mentioned. Although your electric drill is unconcerned about the type of sine wave it receives, many electronic components in televisions and other similar devices are extremely sensitive and can malfunction or fail if they are linked to the “wrong type” of electricity. Many automatic washer programme controllers will not operate with anything other than a pure sine wave.The simple solution is to use a generator that is only capable of providing pure sine wave ‘clean’ electricity. The good news is that these devices are directly equivalent in price to ‘old technology’ and, in practise, are usually less expensive to operate because they do not need to run constantly at a high speed while not in use. Long Island Emergency Power is an excellent resource for this.

Unlike older technology, the digital inverter generator generates ‘direct current’ (DC) rather than alternating current (AC). The DC current is then inverted by a wireless inverter. This not only transforms DC to AC, but also produces a pure sine wave as an output. Even the most fragile equipment that runs on mains AC power is safe to use with this form of current. Similarly, since the inverter controls the electrical frequency, the generator does not depend on a constant engine speed, making these devices more cost-effective to operate.In general, most small (up to 2KW) generators now generated by the major brands are inverter generators by design. But be careful. Many low-cost Far Eastern imports do not meet our inverter requirements.
