Is your company in the market for a new power converter? With the increasing use of mobile devices, there is a growing demand by many individuals for the use of a power converter to provide power and charging for phones, tablets, and more. Power converters, also called power inverters, are able to convert the 12VDC outlet found in most vehicles to a 120VAC source. However, the uses of a power converter are much broader. The design of different converters allows for a range of applications, including transformers—which provide AC to AC isolation—step-up and step-down, solar converters, and standby generators that convert chemical/mechanical energy to electrical.
When input power must be converted to a different output voltage or output capacity, or Watts/VA/Amps, power converters from companies such as Eaton, APC, Tripp Lite, Xantrex, and APC are designed to do the job. Functionality and end use are important for power converter selection. It also determines the ideal input/output cabling and connector requirements. For example, one rack mount unit serves as a step-down transformer. It converts input power from 208 VAC to 120 VAC, which is a power range required for many computer applications and for peripheral computer hardware.
For standby power, there are products designed for extended runtime applications. These units can include either an automatic transfer switch, or ATS, or they integrate into InfraStruXure architecture. Power converters are essential in solar power applications because all solar panels using a converter/inverter to match common household voltage. A complete range of power converters are available to meet any application. Here at PC Connection, we will work with you to find the models that would best serve your business.
