I have a 2000W modified sine wave inverter running from 12V bank in a tractor-trailer. It’s company owned, so no changing or adding equipment. Only viable solution I can see to achieve a sine wave is an online double conversion UPS.
Question is though will it run and not meet an untimely demise? I’ve tried running a gaming console on it and the fans rattled loudly in an alarming way. I know that cheaper UPS systems will induce a fault at the power. But, given this would be converting power constantly anyway, would it signal power loss all the time?
And again, would it cause damage to it? The cheapest one I can find is still an ungodly $600. Such a hassle this problem has been.
Only other solution I see is to invest in a battery station/solar generator. But 1500Wh is even more expensive and realistically would run the device for a few hours before taking half the day to recharge via dc adapter.
I don’t see the issue running directly off the inverter, but for some reason an Xbox Series S did not like it at all and I don’t want to plug something more expensive in that could be damaged. I can’t speculate much as to why it did. Maybe the fans were wired directly to AC? I don’t see that being logical. It’s a quality inverter. Tundra brand designed for trucks. About $500, but mostly is not sold publicly.
UPS manufacturer support is not very helpful and/or not reachable.
Headaches induced over this problem. Thanks
