I purchased the 24volt Samlex inverter to use to power a Green Mountain pellet fired barbecue grill, used in close proximity to sensitive HAM radio shortwave equipment. I am pleased to say, that unlike some inverters, it has proven very Radio Quiet , not causing any interference to operating the shortwave equipment, and it very reliably operates the grill, which has a largely RESISTIVE maximum load of 300 watts when igniting, and then tapers of to a somewhat inductive load of about 60 watts running load. I see that another customer, using this to power an apparently highly inductive load, of multiple pumps, had difficulty! -- My experience in such cases of powering induction motors, is to use a much larger inverter, and/or use a suitable A.C. rated CAPACITOR across the power cable to the motor, to correct the power factor error such motors generate! I also use the old TRACE/XANTREX SW4024 series 4,000 watt rated inverters, and find they will easily power my 12,000 BTU window air conditioner, even on a 100 degreeF. day! The Xantex/Trace unit seems to handle inductive loads, and long duration, high starting current peak loads better than Samlex, but similar units are not available in small sizes! This SAMLEX inverter has proven to be very EFFICIENT, quiet, and reliable in my application.
