The Pure Sine Wave Advantage

When you plug your electronics into a wall socket, you get pure sine wave power. Newer electronics and energy efficient electronics such as those with Active PFC or an Energy Star 5.0 or higher rating typically require pure sine wave to function correctly. Older electronics may continue to function on sub-par wave forms provided by cheaper UPS systems when on backup power.
