What salient features should you look for in a Voltage Stabilizer?
Since a Voltage Stabilizer works with electric power, there is always a risk of your Stabilizer getting wet or damaged when placed on the ground or anywhere unsafe. This is why most stabilizers can be wall mounted or placed at a higher level, to not only protect it from any damage but to also protect your family, especially small children, from being exposed to risk of electric shock.
Indicators display the voltage which has been regulated in order to supply power to the appliance. Newer models are also enabled with LED indicators.
c. Time Delay Systems
This feature enables a time lapse so that the inbuilt compressor (in case of a refrigerator or air conditioner etc.) gets sufficient time to balance the current flow, when a short duration power cut occurs.
Making the function of a stabilizer more accurate and reliable, a lot of the latest models are digitized. What’s interesting about these newer models is that not only are they digitized, but they also adapt themselves to a variety of devices. So all you have to do is shift the stabilizer from one device to another to get it to work. Most of them will also connect and adapt to generators if installed.
e. Overload Protection
The overload protection feature turns off the stabilizer output completely in case of short circuit or any kind of burn-out due to overload occurs.
Most of our stabilizers are provided with a 3-5 year warranty so that you can enjoy safe and sufficient protection for your appliances for longer. Always remember to choose a stabilizer crafted particularly for your home appliance. We hope you make a good decision.
Do modern refrigerators/air conditioners come with in-built Voltage stabilization?
Modern appliances (mostly refrigerators and air conditioners) do come with a bigger Voltage range for operation, i.e. if in past, refrigerators worked well only between 200-240V, now they have a bigger range of 170-290V. Refrigerator comes with inbuilt high & low voltage cutoff but
they do not come with in-built Voltage Stabilizers. Using Voltage Stabilizer with such appliances may not be necessary unless voltage in your area shoots up or down much above or below the limit in which the appliance can operate.
Are there different stabilizers for different appliances?
Voltage Stabilizers are optimally engineered depending on the appliance which they are going to be used for. They are classified on the basis of the energy limit and the features of a particular appliance. Every appliance in our house has a certain energy limit. Keeping those specific limits in mind, the concerned stabilizers are engineered.
The different types of Stabilizers are
a. Stabilizer for Air Conditioner
b. Digital Stabilizer (LCD TV/LED TV/ Music Systems)
c. Stabilizer for Refrigerators
d. Stabilizers for CRT TV, Music Systems
e. Stabilizers for Washing Machine, Treadmill, Oven
f. Mainline Stabilizers
How should you decide which Stabilizer suits your needs?
First and foremost, you need to calculate the total power consumed by your appliances when connected to the stabilizer, especially when switched on. It is important to understand the power consumed while switching on the appliances connected to the stabilizer because the appliances or device will consume double the amount of power on start-up than it does while working.
