How often has this happen to you… You buy a brand new Plasma TV , Refrigerator, washing machine etc. just to find that it stops working with in the warranty period.
You call up the vendor and ask for replacement / repair of that equipment. Have you considered that the quality of power at you house may be bad? Even if you knew, would you acknowledge to the vendor?
Probably not!!! because you want a free service. Thats precisely what happens when any equipment fails. Equipment vendor is in a soup!!!
Power conditions are not good at all places. Voltage fluctuations are not something you can observe, not with out a voltage recorder definitely. But that wont be feasible at all times.
Effects of voltage fluctuations are not understood until a very large catastrophe occurs and appliances are damaged.
Such a case has happen even in Metropolitan cities like Mumbai. There was a electrical fault at main distribution board of the house of very distinguished business person, wherein the neutral wire was burnt. This cause the voltage to shoot up to 440V ( this is called the neutral open condition). At this voltage all the equipment in his house got damaged. MCB/Fuse didnt react at all, and it will not. because MCB reacts to over current and not over voltage
He promptly called the appliance vendors and got the repairs done all free of cost as they were under warranty.
But here the manufacturer/ vendor had to bear the service cost. This includes salary for the day of the service technicians, changing of damaged components replacement of complete unit in some cases.
This cost is huge when you consider country-wide service.
We can help them reduce the events of such failures by more than 75%. This can improve the bottom line of the company.

Only protection device for protection against neutral open and double phasing protection
Most of the equipments today are having power supply which can handle fluctuations between 170V to 270V. Also a lot of equipments have built in over voltage protection.
However there are accidental cases where trees fall on over head wires or accidentally neutral opens and resulting fault causes voltage in single phase to shoot upto 440V. The in built over voltage protection of any equipment is of no use , because they get damaged themselves. OVCD is protection device for protection against such problems of neutral open or double phasing.
If you look at the pictures above you can see a typical distribution line problem. There is chance of wire sagging and over head wires touching each other . this can easily cause double phasing condition.
OVCD cuts off the supply to equipment whenever there is such a problem and connects the supply only when the voltage comes back to normal.
It effortlessly withstands voltage fluctuations up to 440 Volts and spikes up to 6000 Volts. It is programmed with a power-on delay of 3 seconds (configurable) for initial surges which are harmful to any other device.
Why should you consider using OVCD before your equipment?
Now you can install your equipment in the worst electrical conditions without being bothered about service calls.
Cost to company if your product breaks down.
|Man power cost||Rs 800||Travelling and per day costof service person|
|Production down time||Rs 1000||Could cost upward dependingthe type of machine|
|Part replacement||Rs 500||Could cost upward|
|Equipment decay||Yes||Reduction of life of equipment|
|Disturbing to business focus||Yes||Significant( both to customersand vendor)|
|Replacement of product||Product cost||Capital Loss|

OVCD is connected at before the equipment in use.
Incoming current will first pass through OVCD then into the equipment. OVCD continuously monitors the line voltage.
Whenever the voltage is above or below the set voltage limits the OVCD simply cuts the voltage to the equipment thereby saving it from the line disturbance. It reacts within fraction of second to the disturbance. OVCD will withstand the voltage even as high as 440 Volts.It however does not stabilize the voltage as in the case of other devices in the same category like Stabilizer, CVTs.
When the voltage returns to normal , the OVCD resumes the supply to the equipment with short power-on delay of 3 seconds(configurable). This feature is called the Smart Start. It prevents the initial harmful transient that may damage the Equipment.
How is OVCD better than other power conditioning / protection products?
|Protection up to 440V||
|Under voltage / Over voltage protection||Yes||No||No||No||No|
|Protection from spikes||Yes
|Protection from over load||Yes
|EMI /RFI filters||Yes
