154411916918529.pngPowerMax Converter marks its eighth year in business by releasing two new product lines, the PMX Series Inverters and the PMG Series Portable Inverter Generators.

The PMX Inverters supply a pure sine wave 120 volts of AC power, which can power most electronic appliances or equipment. In its initial launch, the PMX Series comes in 1000W-, 2000W- and 3000W-PSW (pictured) models. Standard features include DC voltage detection, a high/low voltage alarm, high/low voltage protection, auto-reset, overload protection and short circuit protection.

The PMG Series Portable Inverter Generators are aimed at the small- to mid-sized RV enthusiast and available in 2,000-watt and 4,000-watt sizes. Both are portable, quiet and compliant with California Air Resources Board and most campground requirements. Users can run the units in parallel if more power is needed. The PMG 4000iSR can supply enough 120-volt power through its RV outlet to run any 30-amp service. The units also offer a remote on/off feature.

"These further complement our current offerings to the RV, marine and automotive industries for mobile power solutions," National Sales Manager Graham McWilliam says. "Over the last few years, we had been hearing from many of our customers who were very happy with our power converters and transfer switches about providing more power products that carried our PowerMax brand, so we did and the response has been great. These new products have increased our brands’ awareness and now give our customers a single brand solution for all the mobile power needs."
