can i run my ice cream machine from a power inverter ?
i have a taylor model 152 ice cream machine. its 115 [ electric ] with 16 amps. its in an ice cream truck. i am looking to run it from a power inverter instead of off a loud generator. is is possible to run this machine of off a power inverter. thanks.
I have had certain electrical items that would not run from a power inverter and some would. A real electrician explained to me that the difference may be in the sine waves produced by some inverters. Some electrical equipment uses square waves and some inverters produce round waves, or vice-versa. I have a large generator for my camper and it will run everything in the unit except the air conditioner. It was explained to me that this was due to the sine wave thingy. Hell, when it's hot in Georgia I want A/C, I don't care if the lights work or not.
