A circuit in both analogue and digital systems that provides an output that is inverse to the input. Its function is to invert or reverse the input. When the input is high, the output is low, and vice versa. The inverter is sometimes called a NOT circuit, since it produces the reverse of the input.

Also a circuit that converts DC to AC either for stand-alone systems or to supply power to an electricity grid.

Duty Rating

The amount of time an inverter can operate at full rated power.

Power Conversion Efficiency

The ratio of output power to input power of the inverter.
