12v Solar Inverters
Solar inverter serves to turn DC to AC and if you are looking for a 12V solar inverter you probably have a system of a comparable voltage with a 12V battery. We have a variety of different 12V inverters for sale and will be happy to help you to make the right choice.
12V inverters are popular among boat and RV owners
Nowadays owners of residential solar systems rarely use 12V batteries and instead pick 24V or 48V. However, 12V batteries are very popular among boat and RV owners. For this reason an 12V battery inverter is perfectly suited for a ship or recreational vehicle.
Don’t forget that the inverter is quite vulnerable and its electronics need a cool dry place with a good air circulation to work properly. Put it somewhere close to a battery so you don’t lose too much energy due to long travel distances of electricity.
Sizing an inverter is pretty easy — the combined power of your solar array should be lower than the capacity of a 12V solar inverter which is measured in watts. If an inverter is too small, you’ll encounter “clipping” which greatly decreases that amount of energy you gather with your panels.
Wiring an inverter
Electrical wiring of an inverter and a battery is pretty straightforward — you just connect positive and negative terminals with large cables. In some situations you have to add a fuse or a circuit breaker in between. Usually a manual for a 12V solar inverter contains all the necessary information about it. Consult an electrician when in doubt. All the appliances that you have can be directly plugged into an inverter.
