Like many others, I have a small fridge which is creating such a surge when the compressor kicks in that it hits the inverter (Phoenix 12/800) too hard.
The solution would be a soft-start module between the fridge and inverter. I am only finding these at around 16A current limitation. This would mean a peak wattage limit (~3500W) above what the fridge is creating anyway, and still higher than the peak the inverter can handle.
Is my reasoning correct?
Or, would a common 16A soft-start module do the trick anyway?
Or, can you recommend any low amp (by my maths, less than 6A) soft-start modules to keep the peak below inverter peak?
Thanks in advance!
