IQS "quasi sine wave" inverters are a great choice for powering a navigational computer, isolating it from power spikes and voltage losses that can cause crashes. They provide modified sine wave AC power for mobile offices or emergency backup power for home electronics, as well.
State of the Art MOSFET technology coupled with unique "Soft-Start" circuitry guarantees reliable operation. The ON-OFF switch illuminates when AC is present at the outputs to provide positive indication of proper operation. Full electrical isolation between the input and output allows operation from either positive ground or negative ground DC power sources. The output is a full 160 Volts peak (115V rms) to allow it to handle most applications from sonar monitors to electric drills.
Extremely heavy input filtering ensures that no electrical noise will be generated to interfere with autopilots, radios or other devices sharing the same batteries. The transformer type output prevents any spikes or surges that might damage computers or other sensitive equipment. ow voltage shutdown circuitry protects the batteries. Current Limiting and Over Temperature shutdown protect the inverter. Ground Fault Interrupt and Short Circuit Detection protect both the user and inverter. Diagnostic LEDs indicate the cause of any shutdown and show when the unit is overloaded. One standard AC receptacle provides for easy connection.
