Its 2015! You probably have new appliances now in your home? Whether they’re for entertainment or kitchen use, remember to use an Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR) to it.

Some people might think, “No need!” while others believe that it depends on the area you live in. And if your city does not have voltage problems, you can connect it directly to the plug. These might be true but being knowledgeable of the facts can be safer than believing the opinions of others.

What are Power Surges?

According to Tom Harris, a contributor on the blog site “How Stuff Works”, power surges occur when something boosts the electrical charge at some point in the power lines. This causes an increase in the electrical potential energy, which can increase the current flowing to your wall outlet. A number of different things can cause this to happen.

images (1)The most familiar source is probably lightning, but there are some unknown and unexpected sources too which may be just around the corner! Power surges are also cause by the operation of high-power electrical devices, such as elevators, air conditioners and refrigerators. These high-powered pieces of equipment require a lot of energy to switch on and turn off components like compressors and motors. This switching creates sudden, brief demands for power, which upset the steady voltage flow in the electrical system. While these surges are nowhere near the intensity of a lightning surge, they can be severe enough to damage components, immediately or gradually, and they occur regularly in most 31033351b__62919_stdhomes and building’s electrical systems.

Meiji AVRs can surely help you from such power surges. Meiji AVRs are designed to stabilize voltage increase and even decrease. Not only that! If your device came from abroad, and has 110 volts requirements, Meiji AVRs has a built-in 110 volts output socket. Meiji AVRs are available from 500 VA to 10 KVA ratings, just right for your new home appliances.

In today’s system of electricity distribution, power surges are an unavoidable occurrence especially in the Philippines. So be sure to use Meiji AVRs to protect your new appliances. Surely, you would never want them to be destroyed easily.

Through the advancement of technologies and continuous upgrade of mechanical devices and appliances, it is recommended to associate them with the right kind of Automatic Voltage Regulators (AVRs)


As some of us know, AVRs have one purpose, and that is to maintain the voltage supply at a constant “range”. AVRs come in two main types: Servo-motor type and “step” type.
Servo-motor type AVRs has a coil of wire and a mechanical motor which rotates in the coil to keep the output voltage at a certain value. They are usually larger and heavier. These kinds of AVRs have power-on delays which result to a more accurate voltage output.
Step types AVRs are usually cheaper. They contain a set of relays or transistors which keeps the output voltage in a certain range of value. Example of the steps might be: 160-180, 180-200, 200-220, 220-240, and 240-260 volts. Each of these ranges is being controlled by a transistor or relay inside. So if you hear a click on a relay type AVR, it means it is switching from one voltage range to the next up or down range. It is not as accurate in voltage output.

So which is better?

Servo-motor type AVRs are better especially if you live in an area where the voltage fluctuates a lot. The more accurate voltage the AVR emits, the more protection it gives to your treasured appliances.

Meiji Electric offers you the best Servo-motor type AVRs!AVR 500

Meiji Servo-Motor AVRs

Using Meiji AVRs is the best solution in keeping the voltage supply at a constant range for your appliance, with or without voltage fluctuations or imbalance. Meiji AVRs are servo-motor type AVRs, designed to be distortion less and provide an accurate voltage output. From 500 to 10, 000 VA capacity, it can accommodate both low and high rated appliances. It saves your treasured appliances & processes from damaging effects of fluctuations. This way, you can focus on things that matter to you.

Many people do not understand the powers of surge protector. Just because lightning is said to not strike the same place twice, it doesn’t mean that it won’t strike at all. Safety is not something we should skimp on, unless your favorite emotion is regret. Therefore, you must understand the benefits of using surge protectors in your own home.

AVR alternativeDifferent Types of Surge Protectors

Take note that while surge protectors do a lot of what their name suggests, there are different kinds that offer varying degrees of protection. For instance, portable voltage protectors do their job for one or two appliances with some limitations, although they are still adequate and affordable for most cases. Whole house surge protectors do a lot more for a wider area, although you’ll be putting down more cash for it. In any case, you must know what surge protectors can do for you in these conditions.


  •  Protects Your Appliances

Portable power strips are sometimes marketed as surge protectors as they do provide some circuit-breaking capabilities and surge protection. Using them for your appliances can help you keep them from shorting during adverse conditions. Of course, a whole house surge protector takes it further by protecting everything within the allotted area in the household. Purchase a good one from a reputable supplier in order to avail of the warranty in case that something does get damaged.

  •  Keeps Computers Safe

These days, surge protectors are primarily used to keep computers from sizzling out since they’re very sensitive to power surges. While modern home computers do have their own built-in protections courtesy of both the power supply and the BIOS, having them hooked up to a  surge protector or UPS will ensure that you prevent considerable damage and data loss in an event of a power outage, lightning strike, or any other unforeseen situation involving the power.

Data loss is definitely a concern these days, especially with files, databases, and other important information in digital format is crucial. Losing them due to some accident could spell disaster for a lot of people, and surge protectors are definitely good insurance to help prevent such woes. They’re so important that computer retailers do sell surge protectors and other power accessories to prevent such catastrophes, and the good ones are worth the cost.

  •  Ease of Use

aircon timerSurge protectors are generally user-friendly as their application is quite straightforward. Whole house surge protectors are a bit more  complicated, but they do function based on a simple principle. They act as bridges that restricts the amount of voltage coming in, so the power is controlled in the event of a surge. They also provide the added benefit of giving you peace of mind and security in times of power outages as there’s no real need to unplug your appliances and devices since you are protected from surges right there. When power is restored after an outage, the surge protector opens the circuit and safely lets the power back in.

Meiji AVR 500WAutomatic Voltage Regulators or AVRs are our good friends at home and even in our offices. They protect our home appliances and different equipments from inconsistent levels of electricity flow that could damage them. During times when electricity fluctuates, it stops this equipment from being damaged through regulating its working voltage and therefore maintaining a consistent flow or load. AVRs are very helpful for certain home equipment that is sensitive from inconsistent electricity flow.

AVRs are in danger sometimes

But of course, even these AVRs are in danger sometimes. When electricity surges too much orAutomatic Voltage Regulator when a particular user makes a mistake on the voltage setting, there is still the possibility of failures that may affect these AVRs. The AVR itself may break down, too. And that may lead to some serious damage, not just in the AVR itself but also in our appliances.

Fuses in some AVRs is beneficial

This is why the availability of fuse in some AVRs is beneficial. Meiji servo-motor type AVR includes a fuse that helps protect the AVR unit. In Meiji AVRs, the fuse blows when there is overloading due to either miscalculations of the users in terms of the wattage and/or other factors. So, even when there are some errors on the settings, the AVR itself would not be harmed as a whole. Instead, only the fuse will break down, hinting that something has been wrong.

Therefore, the fuse fulfills its role as a resistor. It serves more of as a sacrificial device. At first, it tries to interrupt excessive flow of current to the system to avoid damage. So, as much as possible, it allows only the normal current. But if it reaches the maximum amount of current it can handle, it automatically melts down and disconnects. And because of this, the flow of electricity to the equipment of home appliance is interrupted as well and thus avoids incidents of overheating, damages and even fires.

Make your AVR work even if the fuse has already gone bad

Automatic Voltage RegulatorsAnd since only the fuse breaks down in times of error, it means that you can still make your AVR work even if the fuse has already gone bad. All you have to do is turn the AVR off and take out the broken fuse. For most fuse type AVRs, the fuse can easily be found as it is usually attached on the external of the AVR itself. It is also very easy to detach. Then, you have to get a new one from any nearby hardware store and just replace the old one. This way, the AVR can still work as though it were new. And whenever something wrong happens, you just have to replace the fuse.

Indeed, the AVR fuse saves AVRs from serious damages. It is also a practical choice since you no longer have to get a new MEIJI AVR whenever failures occur. As long as you replace the fuse, your MEIJI AVR can still work well. Talk about efficiency!

Harmful electrical surges happen normally and they occur to any random house target regardless of the location. A power surge is considered as one of the most destructive electrical power disturbances which materialize when energy comes back after a disruption.AVR supplier philippines

Main Sources of Electrical Surges

Also called “voltage surges” or “transient voltages,” electrical surges are mostly internal. They are engaged multitude of periods per day—maybe even without us noticing—through different paths. One is by electric utility companies during power grid switching.

Also, a more common cause of power surges is high-power electrical devices. When these gadgets with motors start up or turn off abruptly, the power is redirected to and from other electrical equipment therefore striking a spike in voltage. This on-off switching creates sudden, brief demands for power, which distresses the steady current flow in the electric system.

Refrigerators, washing machines, elevators and air conditioners are among the biggest culprits, but smaller gadgets like hairdryers, stereos, answering machines and wireless phones can also cause problems. Low-level power surges won’t melt parts or blow fuses, but they can cause electronic rust which progressively degrades internal circuitry until it ultimately fails.

Sometimes though unusual, lightning is one external cause of power surges. Resulting to large power surges, it provides damage—frying circuits and melting plastic and metal parts. It enters through the cable TV, satellite dish cable, incoming telephone lines, or through the incoming electrical service line.

The intensity brought about by lightning surges is considered the highest; however, power surges from high-power electrical devices can be serious enough to damage electronic circuit boards and other electrical components would shorten the life of your appliances and electric devices.

End Notes

There are other points of voltage surges and irregular electrical power flow including defective electrical wiring, problems with the utility organization’s equipment, and downed power lines. The system of transformers and lines that bring electricity from a power generator to the outlets in our workplaces or homes is really complicated.

While most surges can’t be controlled, the four best tips to prevent it are to: install a surge protector, unplug devices when they’re not in use, update inadequate wiring and fix overloaded circuits.

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!

In the Philippines, whether you are a coffee shop, boutique, computer shop owner or even just a regular citizen, you will need to deal with the fluctuations in your power provider. It’s a fact of life we all have to accept.

Maybe you may have no idea on what I’m talking about, but I think you may have instances when:

  1. Your lights flickered
  2. You heard your AVR made a noise
  3. A sudden power outage in your home but the neighbors didn’t seem affected

Sounds more familiar? Yes. Now this is what we call electrical fluctuations. There may be a number of reasons as to why these occur. Some of which are loose connections, contacts with your circuit breaker or an open connection.

This article aims to inform you of the reality of electrical fluctuations and gives practical solutions for this problem.

In most cases as mentioned above, in our country, this may be due to the poor power regulation we are getting from our provider. The power plants we have here are mostly outdated and lack proper voltage regulation found in modern power plants as those used in other countries.

Also, if your location is near depressed areas, unauthorized tapping of power lines resulting in overloading of your power source may also result in voltage fluctuations.

For example, at night when everyone uses electricity, your depressed neighbors may use ‘jumpers’ to light up their homes and illegally make use of the provider’s electricity. The capacity given by the utility company cannot sustain the loads being tapped, thus, voltage fluctuations result.

So what do you do?

Tip Number 1: Get a Voltage Regualtor.

This may be one of the best life savers to your appliances. An Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR) can help regulate the sudden surges or sags of your voltage especially during in its initial turn-ons.

Please take note also that the commercially available AVRs can only handle voltage fluctuations within a 10% limit that is, when your voltage goes above 10% or below 10%, your AVR can still give you the required voltage.

However, when it exceeds the 10% limit, for example, your voltage fluctuations goes up to 260V or goes down (sags) to 180V, the commercially available AVRs are not equipped to handle the situation anymore. On these instances, you should inform your power utility company and let them check carefully as this will seriously damage your appliances.

Tip Number 2: Examine your Panelboard.

A thorough examination of your load distribution in your penal board by an authorized electrical practitioner is also necessary. There are instances wherein power loads are combined with lighting loads. This will result in flickering of lights when certain power loads are turned on.

Tip Number 3: Consult MERALCO.

When you have completed Steps 1 and 2 but still with no avail? Complain to your power provider ASAP.

The Voltage ProtectorTravel. The movement of people/objects between relatively distant geographical locations through land, air and sea transports. More often than not, we bring bags or suitcases to carry our belongings like clothes, toiletries and electronic gadgets to name a few out of necessity. These electronic gadgets may come in the form of laptops, mobile phones or cameras for adults and ipods, playstation or tablets for kids which come with their corresponding bags, batteries and chargers. Yet there’s one thing that we often neglect to bring: voltage protectors.

What are Voltage Protectors?

Voltage protectors, as the name implies, are devices designed to protect our electronic gadgets from sudden surges or fluctuations in voltage by limiting if not shorting to ground any unwanted voltage to the recommended safe threshold level. A voltage protector is mostly compared to an Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR ) because of their similar features: protecting the appliance plugged in from faults and fluctuations, built-in delay. Please note however their differences: Voltage Protectors merely cut power supply from the outlet to an appliance while an AVR regulates and continues to provide stable power to your appliance.

When traveling, Meiji voltage protectors could pretty much stand as the invisible line between saving our equipment and having it broken or destroyed. We all know of the hassle of having something repaired to a shop, of continually making follow-up, not to mention the time as well as the resources expended which could ring up to tens and thousands of pesos just to have a device fixed. And what about the data loss on our laptop computers, it might take forever to reconstruct those data once more. You wouldn’t want that to happen again, would you?

Meiji Voltage Protectors don’t cost much and is very much portable compared to your AVR. And the benefits it gives us especially on our travel trips make it handy.

So what else are you waiting for, before you get on that next plane or ship, make sure that voltage protector is one of the things in your checklist! Have a happy travel especially this holiday season!  🙂
