    Default Inverters

    Are any of the inverters made or sold in the DR also "UL Listed"?

    Why is that important?

    It means that the equipment meets specific international safety standards. It is also a requirement in certain applications.

    I am not asking this because I want to use it in my home. I have other reasons for asking this question.

    Only the ones that are intended to be exported.

    If an appliance is only meant to be used in the DR there is no reason to jump through that hoop.

    I understand that. Trace websites based in the US specify UL listing on their equipment. Does this hold true in the DR, or do they sell an uncertified version here?

    Testing equipment used in the DR must be connected to UL power devices in order to certify the test results from that equipment.

    Can you tell me which other brands, models or sizes sold in the DR have the UL listing? If not UL listed, CSA is equivalent outside of the US without further UL testing.
