Induction Heating Tip #1
When is a Kilowatt NOT a Kilowatt?
Power ratings for induction heating are often expressed in "Kilowatts per minute. In other words, the power supply can deliver that amount of power to the load in one minute's time. However, the operative word is "deliver". Most industrial heating power supply ratings are based on the combination of voltage and current available at the power supply terminals.
