2kW pure sine wave inverters pic
CGL 3K Series

3000 W

24 V Pure Sine Wave Inverter

Legacy Series: This series is an older generation suitable for legacy military programs and other specialty applications. Nova Electric still services these models if required, but for new programs and most military / industrial / commercial applications, please see CGP or CGD series for a replacement. These models are not available anymore.

Nova Electric’s CGL-Series inverters are intended for commercial and industrial applications wherever pure sinewave power is needed at 50 or 60 Hz. These inverters are ideal for running electronic loads such as computers, monitors, printers, telecom systems, radios, fluorescent lamps from batteries, field generators, and solar electro-voltaic panels. They can also drive hand drills, motors and small compressors – please consult the factory for proper sizing. These CGL models can also be optionally ruggedized against shock, vibration, and humidity for military applications including vehicle mounted, shipboard, submarine, aircraft, and ground fixed shelters.
