What is the difference between modified sine wave and pure sine wave?admin
Inverters have either modified sine wave (square wave) or pure sine wave output.
Pure Sinewave Inverter
This is the best output waveform you can get out of an inverter and all appliances are able to run off it without interference or overheating. Some of its advantages are as follows:
Modified Sinewave Inverter
The Modified sinewave inverter has limitations. These are some of the appliances that may experience problems when running off Modified Sinewave inverters:
Modified sinewave inverters are usually only protected by standard fuses which, under normal circumstances, are not always fast enough, therefore they are by far more vulnerable to failure.
It is definitely advantageous to use a pure sine wave inverter as a pure sine wave inverter can basically run any type of equipment in contrast to a modified sine wave / step square wave inverter.
