Pure Sine Wave Inverters: Do You Need a NEBS Level 3 Inverter?

Pure sine wave inverters are highly sought after due to the quality of the electrical current they deliver. Unlike square wave inverters and modified sine wave inverters, pure sine wave inverters deliver current that is the same as the current that utility lines deliver. This makes them more widely usable than older models of inverters whose current is not suited for sensitive equipment such as computers, speakers, and fluorescent lighting ballasts, to name a few.

However, not all pure sine wave inverters are designed to perform under the same operating conditions. For example, inverters that have a Level 3 Network Equipment-Building System (NEBS) certificate are designed to operate under more strenuous conditions than standard models. Does your company or organization need to invest in NEBS Level 3 pure sine wave inverters? If any of the following conditions are present in the operating environment, the answer is yes.

High Moisture

Operating environments where water and other aqueous substances are consistently dispensed often contain a high level of moisture that can spell death for electrical equipment, unless the equipment is designed to withstand the moisture. A NEBS Level 3 inverter can meet this requirement. Implement the device, and say goodbye to electrical contacts that are oxidized due to moisture.

Heavy Vibration

Any piece of equipment that is assembled using numerous parts that are fixed in place can have the parts gradually come loose when heavy vibration is present. Instead of continually performing maintenance operations to tighten loose components, investing in a NEBS Level 3 inverter that is designed to withstand vibration is less time consuming and reduces downtime that results from inverter maintenance.

Airborne Contaminants

There are various types of airborne contaminants that could invade the equipment housing of an inverter and cause serious problems for the components inside, such as vaporized volatile organic compounds (VOCs), toxic emissions from chemical solvents, and aerosols that leave a residue when they settle on objects, to name a few. NEBS Level 3 inverters are designed to withstand the presence of a variety of airborne contaminants.

Unusual Temperatures

Most inverters are designed to operate at room temperature with minimal temperature fluctuations in the operating environment. If the environment in which you need an inverter is unusually hot or cold, you should ideally invest in a product that is made to perform well under changing temperatures, or at a temperature that is unusually hot or cold. NEBS Level 3 inverters can be designed to withstand these conditions.
