VR Series Voltage Stabilisers & Power Line Conditioners

Low Cost Protection for Today's Modern Power Needs
Single Phase - 500 to 5000 VA/Watts

By boosting low voltages and stepping down high voltages, VR Series Voltage Stabilisers and Power Line Conditioners ensure a stable output voltage. In addition, they safeguard against all too common everyday transient voltages and spikes - typically introduced into the mains supply by nearby disturbances resulting from peak power demands or stop / start operation of electrical machinery.

Capable of supporting all electrical and electronic modern office and general household appliances (including air conditioners, computers, fridges, TV, satellite and any other electrical loads), models are available for situations where the incoming mains utility supply is between 140V to 270V (F Models) or, for more challenging power environments, 80V to 270V (G Models). Models are also available for Low Volt 110/120/127V applications (L Models).

Introduction

Low Cost Protection for Today's Modern Power Needs

 1P 2W Solution

The Mini VR Series AC Automatic Voltage Stabiliser range is based on 5 different power ratings:

  • 500VA /500W
  • 1000VA / 1000W
  • 2000VA / 2000W
  • 3000VA / 3000W
  • 5000VA / 5000W

By boosting low voltages and stepping down high voltages, they ensure a stable output voltage. In addition, Mini VR Series Voltage Stabilisers safeguard against all too common everyday transient voltages and spikes - typically introduced into the mains supply by nearby disturbances resulting from peak power demands or stop / start operation of electrical machinery.

Capable of supporting all electrical and electronic modern office and general household appliances (including air conditioners, computers, fridges, TV, satellite and any other electrical loads, models are available for situations where the incoming mains utility supply is between 140V to 270V (F Models) or, for more challenging power environments, 80V to 270V (G Models). Models are also available for Low Volt 110/120/127V applications (L Models).

Features

Automatic Voltage Regulation 

 

Automatic Voltage Regulation:
Suitable for all electrical and electronic equipment, VR Series Voltage Stabilisers / Conditioners continuously monitor the incoming supply. Should the incoming voltage rise or drop, the Stabilisers will automatically control the output to ensure the voltage reaching the load equipment remains within the load equipments intended requisite input voltage window.

 Spike & Surge Protection 

 

Spike & Surge Protection:
Protection against all too common everyday high energy spikes and transient voltages typically introduced into the utility mains supply by nearby disturbances resulting from peak power demands or stop / start operation of electrical machines.

 Electrical Noise Filter

 

Electrical Noise Filter:
Filtering designed to attenuate disruptive and damaging electrical noise on the incoming supply. Ensures protection against Common Mode electrical noise that occurs between the neutral and earth, and also Normal (AKA. Transverse / Differential) Mode electrical noise that occurs between the line and neutral.

 Lightning Surge Protection

 

Basic Lightning Surge Protection:
Basic protection of the load equipment from the potentially damaging effects of high transient over-voltages introduced indirectly into the utility mains supply following a lightning strike.

 Restart Time Delay

 

Restart Time Delay:
A 10 second time delay on system restart designed to prevent nuisance tripping. Ensures that load appliances are not switched on-off repeatedly during fluctuations, nor are they subjected to massive surges normally experienced when power returns after power outages. For air conditioning applications this feature should ensure compressors have sufficient time to neutralise before re-starting.

 Fast Response Time

 

Fast Response:
An extremely fast speed of response to voltage changes ensures VR Series Voltage Stabilisers are ideal for virtually all types of critical load applications.

 Solid State

 

Solid State:
Being based on the highly reliable microprocessor controlled digital electronic design topology, VR Series models are solid state with no moving parts making them perfect for applications where an ‘Install and Forget’ solution is required.

 Maintenance Free

 

Maintenance Free:
With no user required replacable components, VR Series Voltage Stabilisers / Conditioners offer a long design life and are basically ‘Maintenance Free’ solutions.

Principle of Operation

VR Series AC Voltage Stabilisers / Line Conditioners are intended as low cost solutions, being designed around an auto transformer with a single input and multiple outputs. The outputs are arranged in steps / taps delivering a higher or lower voltage.

VR Series Design VR-3000F - Internal View

Under normally running conditions the stabiliser will continuously monitor the rise and fall of the incoming utility mains supply. On detection of change in the supply it will energize the most appropriate electro–magnetic switch for selecting the most suitable output winding tap to correct and stabilise the voltage. As a result, the load equipment connected to the stabiliser will receive a safe, tolerable voltage and be able to operate reliably - irrespective of the fluctuating and irregularities of the incoming voltage supply.
