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 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!

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!

Servo Motor AVRsAn AVR is located in more than one place in your home. You see it in the living room beside the Plasma TV, you see it in your room beside your desktop computer, and you see it in the kitchen beside the refrigerator. At the office, you see it in each working station beside their computers. It somehow became a general knowledge to buy it together with an appliance people value. And everyone also makes it a point to turn it on first before using the appliance plugged-into it. But what really is an AVR? And why spend more money to buy it after already purchasing a good quality appliance?

What are AVRs?

An Automatic Voltage Regulator is an electronic device or circuit that maintains an output voltage to be consistent to its load current. This is necessary because the voltage delivered to your home and mine may sometimes fluctuate which can cause serious damages to your appliance; if not completely destroying it. Fluctuations in power are brought about by so many factors. Some of these may be poor power regulations, electrical surges due to lightning, and many others. An AVR however, has a servomechanism inside that hunts the accurate voltage when surges happen in order to maintain the needed voltage level that ultimately protects your appliance.

Now you may ask, why not use an AVR in all my appliances? This friend may be a logical question but an impractical one. An AVR is usually necessary for appliances and equipments with electronic devices inside that may be sensitive to electrical surges. Examples of which are flat screen TV’s, audio/video equipments, computer systems, modern refrigerators and similar items. Simple home appliances that do not contain sensitive electronic devices like electric fans, blowers, portable radios, etc. do not need AVR’s.

In general, there are two types of an Automatic Voltage Regulator. One is the Relay Type and the other is the Servo Motor type. A Relay type AVR makes use of electronic circuitry like relays and semi-conductors to regulate the voltage. Servo Motor type AVR on the other hand, uses a magnetic core with a motorized servo mechanism to regulate the voltage. The servomechanism is the one responsible in switching connections in order to maintain the acceptable voltage. Durability wise, a Servo Motor type AVR is better than a Relay type as it can withstand voltage fluctuation better than the solid state Relay type which may easily get damaged.

Meiji supplies AVRs of complete wattages namely, 500, 1000, 1500, 2000, 3000, 5000 all in Servo Motor Type. The output consists of three 220V outlets and one 110V outlet. Meiji AVRs also provide you with an added protection of a delay feature of about 3-5 minutes in order to prevent electrical surges during the appliance’s initial power supply. However, for your convenience, a quick-start button feature is also available for you to bypass the delay feature.

All models of Meiji AVRs are fuse type. This is to protect users of the tendency of miscalculating load voltages being plugged-in to the AVR. In these occasions, the fuse will blow informing the user of an over voltage thus minimizing damage to the AVR and also to the appliance plugged-in. The user will only have to turn off the AVR, buy a replacement fuse from the available nearest hardware store, and switch back on Meiji AVR. And it works as good as new.

In addition to this, Meiji AVRs are very portable with handles that allow you to conveniently move the items to wherever locations necessary.

Aside from SVC-5000W, all models are ready-to-use. In Meiji AVRs, no need for you to assemble an outlet, a plug or a cord. In short, no added cost! For SVC-5000W however, due to its significant load and output, a qualified electrician/technician is necessary to safely install the load directly to the output terminals of the AVR by means of wires/cables.

For models SVC-3000W and SVC-5000W, Meiji AVR comes with a breaker. This breaker ‘trips’ or automatically turns off also in cases of over voltages that is too high to be accommodated by the fuse.

Now that you already know the importance of an AVR in your home, choose the AVR that can best protect your appliances/equipments.  Choose ‘Meiji’ AVRs!

Servo Motor AVRsAn Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR) is one that is used to protect our computers and other appliances (i.e. refrigerators, 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.

Servo-motor AVRs

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!
