FAQs

Q: What is Inverter?

A: Inverter is an electronic device or circuitry that changes direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC).



Q: How does a inverter work?

A: A inverter converts DC power into conventional AC power allowing you to use your favorite devices when an AC outlet is not available. Simply connect an inverter to a battery source, plug your appliance into the inverter and you’re set!



Q: How do I know which inverter to buy?

A: Different devices require specific wattage to run correctly and efficiently. Please use this easy formula to determine the correct size inverter:

AMPS x 120 = Watts

Example: 15 Amp Cooling Unit X 120 = 1800 Watts
Please refer to our estimated watts page to help you find the inverter that is right for you.



Q: How far can I keep my inverter from my batteries?

A:Keep the cables between your inverter and batteries as short as possible. This will help your batteries perform their best and keep the inverter’s signal clean. The cables that come with the inverter are “rated” or good for up to six ft. If you plan on going over six ft., drop down to a larger gauge cable. Please call us if you are still unsure. This is pretty important stuff that should NOT be overlooked. If the cables between your battery and inverter get hot while under heavy load, then you should use heavier cables.



Q: Can I use an extension cord with my inverter?

A: Yes, no problem. If cables need to be run, it is best to keep inverter as close as possible to batteries. Use extension cords on the output side (Vac output) rather than extending the VDC cables. Tip: Contractors often need to mount the inverter in the back of their trucks. In a case like this it would be best to mount a secondary battery near the inverter and wire it to the primary truck battery. Vac extension cords should not exceed 200 feet or you will have signal loss



Q: How long can I expect my devices to run?

A: The run time depends solely on the amount and size
(capacity) of your batteries.



Q: why BAYKEE solar system?

A: 1. Technology driven, quality forcus; 2. Complete PV system-wide solutions; 3. high efficiency, low cost.
