Low power (under-voltage) will damage any refrigeration appliance’s compressor and High Power (Over voltage) will damage any electrical or electronic equipment. The VoltGuard combines the protection of the FridgeGuard and HivoltGuard by disconnecting the power when it goes below or above unacceptable level. Additionally, there is a delay when power returns to normal. This will ensure that the appliance is not switched on-off repeatedly during fluctuations nor it is subjected to a massive surge normally experienced when power returns after power cuts.
The VOLTGUARD will disconnect the power to your appliance if the mains goes below or above (user adjustable using iSense™) pre-set limits. The VOLTGUARD will re-connect automatically only after the supply has returned to acceptable limits after the set delay time. You can set the standard delay time to 30 seconds or 3 minutes using the front dial.
With a built-in TimeSave™ function, the VOLTGUARD will reconnect automatically in 10 seconds if the unit has been switched off for more than the set standard delay (30 seconds or 3 minutes), thereby ensuring longer operating time and reducing unnecessary longer startup delay.
The iSense™ technology allows you to control how sensitive the VOLTGUARD is to voltage problems. Using the iSense™ dial you can set the desired level of protection and startup delay.
