AVR

Servo Motor AVRsAn Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR) is one that is used to protect our computers and other appliances (i.e. refriegerators, flat screen TVs) against surging and fluctuating of electricity by maintaining the load voltage against wide variances.

This is also necessary especially for places where power outages frequently happen as such as our country resulting in excessive in rush current upon power resumption.

Meiji AVRs are servo-motor type with 4 universal outlets (3: 220V and 1:110V). We also have power-on delay of 5-8 minutes so as to protect the appliance for sudden surges of electricity. However, we also have a Quick-start feature to override this in case of an immediate need. Like our transformers, our AVR units also have a fuse protective device for over voltage. This will be the initial warning as it blows to inform you or the user that the ampere rating being used is more than the allowable. It also protects your appliance against short circuits and other dangerous faults to avoid accidents like fire.

Included also is a convenient switch for easier turn-on and shut-off without the need of pulling the plug from your wall outlet.

For our 3000w and 5000w units, we also have a built-in circuit breaker to better protect your higher rated appliances. When it trips, this would be a warning that your appliance may be experiencing faults, shorts and/or others.

The features and benefits of Meiji AVRs are more than what you can ask for!

    Hello, I have a Meiji svc-500 AVR, for approximately one month now, and I’m using the AVR to supply power to my PC and monitor. I would like to also add an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to my PC and monitor, as brown outs are common in our area. Can you advise which UPS would be best for my use, and should I plug my UPS into the AVR, or plug the AVR into the UPS? Any info will be appreciated.

  2. Eric Watkinson says:

    I went to the Ace Hardware in my area, but they did not have your UPS. Do any other stores carry your products?

  3. Greetings,

    We recently bought a 2000w AVR
    The fuse goes short alot,
    Were using a 250 fuse
    How much is the limiter for the fuse?

    • Hi Elle,

      Just wondering why the fuse will do that.
      Usually, this happens because it intends to protect the AVR and/or the appliances, main causes being overloaded.
      By the way, where did you purchase your item? When? Is this a MEIJI Brand?
      I will also have my sales representative coordinate with you, to clarify some info and provide a better and quick service. Thanks, John.

  4. magkanu po ung 2000watts na avr?

  5. Jem Resano says:

    Hello, we currently bought the meiji avr 500w. Id like to ask if where we’ll plug the cpu cord that states 10A 125v because we tried to plug it in 110v socket of the avr but it does not work. Pls help. Thanks!

    • Hello Jem,

      Thank you for your purchase. Perhaps your AVR 500 is experiencing a delay of 2-4minutes that’s why it won’t work? Have you also tried using your 220V outlet by plugging in a 220V gadget?

  6. John Lagana says:

    Hi Apple, is it safe to plug my US Wii U (110V) to the 110V socket of your AVR or should I use a step-down transformer instead?
    Thanks.

    • Hi John Lagana,

      The Meiji AVR is intended to help regulate the power fluctuation in your home, not as a step down transformer.
      The 110V output is meant for emergency uses only, and not to be used for extended period of time.
      To answer your question; yes, it would be safe, but it is in your discretion for how long you would play, but knowing Wii, you would probably want to play for a long time.

      Thank you for your inquiry, until next time. John

  7. Rommel Cuison says:

    Hi Apple, I recently purchased a 2.25HP treadmill from Amazon. What is the wattage of the AVR that I should use for this? Also, since the treadmill runs on 110V, should I use a stepdown transformer as well or would the 110V output of the AVR suffice? Would appreciate if you can send me a quote as well. Thanks!

    • Hello Rommel.
      Thank you for your interest in our items. We will recommend a 5000VA AVR for your treadmill use. You may use the 110V outlet of it. Kindly also check your email for our price quote. Thank you.

  8. Rommel Chiquito says:

    Hi Apple,

    I have seen your product at Ace hardware with a 5000watts (5kva) as the biggest one. I am looking for 7-8 or 10 kva if you have? my plan is to use only one avr sa bahay para hindi na gagamit ng individual avr sa bawat appliances (aircon, water pump, PC/TV, etc.) If there is please let me know and how much..

    Regards,
    Rommel

    • Hello Rommel,
      Thank you for your interest in our Meiji products. Yes, we have an AVR 10KVA. But to be sure, have you computed the wattage consumption of your house with appliances? This way, we can be sure that a 10KVA AVR is enough.
      Kindly also check your email for our price quote. :)

  9. What step down transformer can you recommend for 110V/50 hz construction tools with power consumption of 1000W. How much would it cost me to buy one?

    I also have a 110V vacuum tube amplifier, 60W power consumption. Is it possible to use a portable step down transformer in this regard? How much would that be?

    I’m from Las Pinas, do you have a store near our city?

    • Hello Wilfredo,
      Thank you for your interest in Meiji products. We would recommend for your construction tool a ST-3000VA, whereas for our tube amplifier a 250VA step-down transformer. Yes, we have a portable type for this wattage. Kindly check your email for our price quote.:)
      We have displays in ACE Hardware BF Paranaque, ACE Hardware South mall and ACE Hardware Festival for your convenience.

  10. Hi, Apple. I have six PCs in a computer rental shop and would like to know the suitable AVR capacity. LIkewise, do you have electricity/energy-saving products? If so, where can we buy those? My location is Quezon City. Thanks

  11. I bought SVC-5000w and SVC 1500
    but after a month was broken already where can i fix it? Because i misplaced my receipt from ace hardware

    • Hi Aileen,

      We can definitely help you with that, please call our office at 02-448-7423 and ask for the mall department.
      They can give you the best solutions for all your problems. Thank you.

  12. hi for aircon what wattage of avr can be used,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,do i need 5000 watts or lower………please email me the details,,,

    • Hi Phillip,

      We need to know the wattage of your aircon.
      Of course, the higher the rating of the aircon, the higher the requirement rating of the AVR.
      Please email me the rating for quotation. Thank you.

  13. Darian Amante/Coffee Roastmasters Alliance Inc says:

    Hi Ms. Aileen,

    Our company is in need of 5,000 watts AVR, can you please quote me with your best price for this item.
    Pls. email me on my email address.

    Thank you so much,

  14. Hi,

    What wattage rating would you recommend for the appliances below?

    Desktop with power supply @ 700W
    Monitor @ 25W
    42″ TV @ 90W
    DVD Home Theater @ 40W

    I am planning to connect them using just one AVR since there’s only one outlet in the room. Will just one AVR suffice?

    Also, how much would it cost? I live in Quezon City. Thanks!

    • Hi JB,

      Wow, looks like you have a whole system there.
      Well, we’ll be recommending the AVR 1500Watts and it has multiple outlets, so this should at least help you with the one outlet problem you have.
      Well send you the quotation through your email. Thanks.

      • Hi John,

        Thanks for the recommendation but I’m a bit confused with the quotation sent to me. It appears that I will be buying one AVR for each appliance. I was thinking to buy just one AVR with a rating of 3000 Watts. What do you think? And how much would that cost? Thanks again.

        • Hi JB,

          Yes, you are correct, you may use a higher commensurate rating of MEIJI AVR for your multiple function.
          We’ll send you the quotation for your requirement asap. Thanks.

  15. Hi Appel, iam in Province and we have very bad Power Supplies. The Voltage jumping in Minutes or Seconds from 220 until to 130 Volt.
    We need arround 1000 Watt permament, and for short time 1500 Watt.
    Which Product you will be fix this jumping Voltage Problem ?

    Regards

    • Hello Klaus,
      Thank you for your interest in our items. Actually, the fluctuation of 220V to 130V is very high. This cannot be handled by AVRs as well. What we can suggest is the auto transformer type with relay. Alaminos City is in Pangasinan, am I correct?

  16. Huan Richard says:

    What avr do i need ?
    i have a 2.5hp 110v wiindow type

    • Hi Huan,

      We’re assuming that this is for an aircon, since this has a compressor and a cooling system, we would recommend a 10kVA MEIJI AVR.
      Since you mentioned that this consumes 110V, it might be wiser to use a MEIJI Step Down Transformer instead, or both for added protection.
      Please take a look at your email for our formal quotation, I will give you both options.

      • Huan Richard says:

        The cost of my 2.5hp 110v is 4k and the cost of equipment attachment to make it run is 15k…very expensive??? Got any cheaper solution?

  17. Greeting! can you email me your price for 1000, 1500 and 2000 watts avr. thank you in advance.

  18. Hi I am in Makati .. where could I get a AVR, UPS and other protection devices?

    Thanks

    • Hi Clyde,

      Thank you for your inquiry.
      We have all our products available all over the Philippines, including Makati.
      How about I’ll send you an email with regards to all the details along with a formal quotation for your review. Thanks.

  19. IMEE FLORENDO says:

    where can i buy avr with 125v outlet??

    • Hi Imee,

      Unfortunately, we only have AVRs with 220V and 110V outlet. I have no idea where to buy the kind of AVR you’re looking for.
      For your other inquiries, feel free to email us any time.

      Thanks!

  20. Hi Apple. Just wanna ask we bought a 2ndhand Samsung 32″ flat screen tv, it came from Pennsylvania. the owner said to buy an avr 500watts and with a socket for 110v. I would like to know your opinion about this and I’d the price of the avr and if you have that product available here in ace hardware Davao branch. Thank You

    • Hi Rachel,

      if the owner said to buy an 500 watts AVR, it’s up to you if you’ll gonna stick on to that. But I think you should check for yourself the ratings of your tv first, then tell it to us. In that way, we can be more accurate and safe in providing you the best offer we can give.

      Thank you!

  21. Randy Bronola says:

    Good day!

    Can you send me the price of a 10KVA voltage regulator? I intend to use it for the whole house loads, including ref and a 1.5Hp A/C unit.

    Thanks,

    Randy

  22. rogelyn isidro says:

    Qty. 1pc. each

    • Hello Rhogelyn,

      Glad you chose our products! Unfortunately, we only have 1KVA UPS but the AVRs, we can definitely supply them to you.
      I’ll send you asap the quotation of the items you were requesting.

      Thank you!

  23. Clifford says:

    Kindly send us your best quotation for 10KVA AVR. Is this 10 KVA is enough to run freezer which have 15 amperes maximum current load? Please let us know. Thanks and Regards.

    • Hello Clifford,

      Thank you for your interest in our product. I’m afraid our 10KVA AVR cannot take your freezer at its maximum current load.
      But if ever it would not come to its current load limit, it can handle it. I’ll send you asap an email of the formal quotation of the product.

      Thank you!

  24. Ramil Rodriguez says:

    Hi Ms Apple,

    Wanna ask if you have 15 & 20 KVA AVR. If has, please send me the price.

    Thanks & regards,
    ramil

    • Hello Ramil,

      Unfortunately, we only have avrs up to 10KVA. But if you want, we can customize one with 15KVA and one with 20KVA for you.
      Email me the details of how you want it to be.

      Thanks!

  25. Timmy Guevara says:

    I recently bought a 1000watt avr BUT a few months back i remember calling the head office in mabolo and asking whether Meiji avr also regulate 110 volts the technician answered yes it does of course it does i asked again because i similar avr called Maldol does not regulate 110v it only protects 220v so i continued to ask the technician how do we know that it regulates 110v as well? I asked him does the 110v socket also have time delay? Because this would be a good indicator if the 110v socket had time delay that could mean the regualtion circuit could include the 110v socket, the technician answered YES the 110v has time delay
    So to make the long story short the AVR i bought yesterday did not have time delay on the 110v socket and i fear does not regualte 110 voltage as well. Can anyone help on this? Or can i have one made that includes 110v protection? Any other product that has 110v delay and protection maybe a more expensive model? Thanks for your time

    • Hello Timmy,

      I called you, but no one answered.
      Regarding your concern, the 110V socket of the AVR you have right now does not have time delay but it surely regulates 110V. If you only need the 110V socket, I suggest to use a stepdown transformer. If you mind, what appliances are you using with the AVR?

      thanks!

      • timmy guevara says:

        Im using the avr for a 110v led tv and i usually switch off the avr at night so i kind of need the 110v delay and protection
        If 110v socket is protected and regulated then why was it not included in the delay circuit
