Protecting valuable appliances is everyone’s desire. As we all know, in the Philippines lies many sorts of voltage surge issues. Sudden rise of electricity can break appliances, specifically if the electricity goes beyond the voltage or current rating of the appliance.
Automatic Voltage Regulators or AVRs do the task of ensuring that the voltage is well regulated all the time upon plugging of the appliance unto the device. Most of the time, these appliances are valuable and will not be a hundred percent efficient due to energy loss and may risk absorbing voltage rises.
Meiji Electric offers durable and reliable AVRs. Besides that, a cheaper and safer alternative is made available by Meiji’s Voltage Protectors.
A Voltage Protector is a device that protects appliances by cutting off electricity to the device plugged into it as soon as the voltage source reaches below the minimum allowable or exceeds the maximum allowable rating. Meiji Voltage Protector ensures that your appliance will be safe even when it hits both low and high voltages. Giving you the peace of mind especially when you’re not at home.
These are the specifications for the Voltage Protector:
Under voltage cut-off: 180V (adjustable)
Over voltage cut-off: 265V
Output working voltage: 220V
Output current capacity: 20A
Output power capacity: 4,400 Watts
Meiji Voltage Protector does not need to be monitored, it will do the voltage monitoring for you. The device also has a single toggle switch for switching on and off power. As indicated in the specs above, it can handle high voltage, current, or power devices. A practical application for this is for plugging into air conditioners, refrigerators, laptops, and other appliances within the mentioned recommended load capacity.
Also, for voltage information of the load, there are 4 light indicators to inform you whether the Voltage Protector is under: normal operation, on-delay operation; this is due to experiencing a surge or sudden drop; over-voltage operation, and under voltage operation. This will always keep you informed on the current state of the supply of your Voltage Protector.
For the on delay function of the device, upon the protector cuts off the voltage due to under or over voltage surges, it will delay 2-4 minutes of time before it allows supply of power again to the appliance. This is to eliminate any possible initial sudden sure of power entry to the appliance, as sometimes this will be the case after a certain voltage fluctuation/surge.
Portability is also the key feature of this voltage protector. No need to bring bulky and expensive AVRs on your travel. Simply buy the cheaper voltage protector and bring it along wherever you go to protect your devices on the go. Save money and effort and protect your devices with Meiji Voltage Protector!
