An automatic voltage regulator (AVR) is a specially designed device made to regulate voltage automatically. It maintains constant voltage and power line conditioning to the equipment load. The AVR is able to do this under a variety of conditions, regardless of when the utility input voltage, frequency or load system varies.
Benefits of 2KW and 5KW Automatic Voltage Regulators:
- they are inexpensive
- very accurate output voltage regulation
- offer a High tolerance to system faults and overload
- high tolerance to power factor and frequency deviations
- good line isolation
- wide choice of KVA rating, voltage and configuration available
An AVR is needed to keep voltages within the prescribed range that can be tolerated by the electrical equipment using that voltage. As they maintain a constant voltage level to electrical equipment loads that require a steady, reliable voltage supply, it is imperative to make use of AVRs to ensure the protection of your equipment. By not using an AVR, voltage can sag, spike or surge and damage your electrical devices.
How will an AVR protect my business?
If a voltage supply to equipment is not constant, the resulting surges, spikes and sags can degrade, and at worst, destroy necessary equipment. By making use of both 2KW and 5KW AVRs, you can avoid damage to equipment, or worse, catastrophic equipment failure. This is because it compensates for surges and dips in fluctuating voltage levels and delivers a constant selected voltage level. The electrical power supplied to most areas is, unfortunately, less than ideal as a result of outdated power grids. Considering that your voltage is also determined by the number of users, as well as the amount of current they are drawing from your electrical supply grid area, the actual supply is most often not within normal ranges. Using an AVR can protect your equipment. In this way, you will also have fewer maintenance costs, and a longer life for your equipment.
