What is an converter?
A voltage converter, including high-power converters, sometimes also called power converter or voltage converter, is an electrical or electromechanical device that makes it possible to power loads from power systems whose connection parameters do not allow a direct connection to the load. The converter changes the current and voltage values in a manner corresponding to the load, with the lowest possible power loss. The lower the power loss, the higher the efficiency of the converter.
Types of converters and their applications
Looking at any power supply, you can confidently call it a power converter. After all, its role is to reduce the voltage consumed and its stabilization. Systems that do not draw energy directly from the network, but from another source, are most often called converters or inverters. Those that produce a voltage much higher than its supply voltage, are called high-power converters. As a rule, such devices are components of other devices, not independent machines. Another type is inverters, which are most often powered by a battery and produce alternating current at a specific voltage.
Direct and alternating voltage
Depending on the type of voltage, different symbols apply. Behind the designation DC-DC, there are DC to DC voltage converters. DC-AC convert direct voltage to alternating voltage and are found, for example, in automotive power supplies that produce 230 V. AC-AC is the conversion of alternating voltage into alternating voltage. This conversion is often used in online UPS units that provide power during power outages. AC-DC is the change of AC voltage to DC, used in virtually every electronic device, where the supply voltage after conversion powers the circuits that usually require low DC voltage.
Converters in our store
Especially for you we prepared a rich offer in the section of high power converters, where we offer for example car DC/AC converters with a display, which allow you to connect to the car installation devices that require 230V AC power. Thanks to it you can connect in your car laptop, printer, lighting or small household appliances. Another converter that can be used in a car is the DC/DC converter, changing 12 V to 24 V, which allows you to connect e.g. CB radio, parking heater or portable refrigerator. We invite you to make purchases in our store.
