Ruptronic FAQs
(A) About Inverters

What is the difference between a 12-Volt and 24-Volt power Inverter?

The difference is the type of battery you want to run your power inverteron. Most vehicles run off a 12 volt battery. The 24 volt are generally used in large trucks or industrial motor

What is the difference between Modified Sine & Pure Sine Wave Inverters?

If your equipment can accept some voltage fluctuation, consider a modified sine wave inverter. These inverters provide mobile power at a more affordable price and come in a full range of sizes.

How long can I run the inverter on my battery?

To calculate the approximate power drain on your battery you will want to estimate the reserve power ("amp/hour") of the battery, and the amps the inverter will require, to meet the continuous load demands of the appliance.

What is meant by "continuous 2200-watts and peak 5000-watt surge?

Some appliances or tools, such as ones with a motor, require an initial surge of power to start up ("starting load" or "peak load"). Once started, the tool or appliance requires less power to continue to operate ("continuous load")

What can a power inverter do and what can I use one for?

A power inverter converts DC power into conventional AC power which can run all kinds of household products such as: kitchen appliances, microwaves, power tools, TVs, radios, computers and more.The power inverter draws its power from a 12 Volt 24 Volt battery, or several batteries wired in parallel. The battery will need to be recharged as the inverter draws the power out of it. The battery recharges by running the automobile motor, gas generator, solar panels, or wind and not with the power inverter. During blackouts, an inverter can be used for emergency power by use with a car battery with the vehicle running and an extension cord running into the house, where you can then plug in electrical appliances.

Can I operate a microwave with a power inverter?

The power rating used with microwave ovens is the "cooking power" which refers to the power being "delivered" to the food being cooked. The actual operating power requirement rating is higher than the cooking power rating (for example, a microwave with "advertised" rating of 600 watts usually corresponds to almost 1100 watts of power consumption). The actual power consumption is usually stated on the back of the microwave. If the operating power requirement cannot be found on the back of the microwave check the owner's manual or contact the manufacturer

(B) About Stablizers

How do I choose the right transformer?

On the back of your appliance, you should be able to find a label describing the specification of it. You should see a label describing the Wattage (W) or the Amperage (A) of the appliance.

What kind of converter do I need for a TV or Monitor?

ITo connect a television to a converter you must choose a converter more powerful that what is indicated at the rear of your TV set, because it creates a surge when it is turned on. We would recommend the VC-750 for any TV or Monitor.

Can I connect an American 220 Volt Dryer to a Transformer?

No you cannot connect an American 220 Volt Dryer to a Transformer. Voltage Transformers are made to convert single phase 110 or 220 volt. American 220 volt consists of 2 phase of 110 volt and European 220 volt consists of 1 phase of 220 volt.

How to calculate the Wattage of an appliance?

If the label does not specify the wattage, but you know the Amperage (A), you can calculate it using the following formula: Amps (A) * voltage (V) = Watts Example: 3 Amps * 220 volt = 660 watts 3 Amps * 110 volt = 330 watts

Can I use several appliances on the same transformer?

Yes as long as you don't exceed the Wattage capacity of the voltage converter. A "surge protector" is required. You can find them on this web-site as well.

Difference between a voltage converter and a voltage regulator?

A voltage regulator functions as a voltage converter as well as a voltage stabilizer. A voltage stabilizer will stabilize the electricity to fixed current. This unit is usually used in countries where the voltage currency is not stable. The voltage regulator will stabilize a voltage fluctuation between 75v-130v to 110v (+- 4%). The voltage regulator will stabilize a voltage fluctuation between 180v-260v to 220v (+- 4%)

Do voltage converters convert the cycle (Hz)?

All voltage converters only convert the voltage and not the cycle, however most appliances and electronics will function properly with them.
