Loss to appliance manufacturers due to voltage fluctuation problems.


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 at MSS have developed , perfected and implemented device called OVCD for protection of equipments from power fluctuations.

We can help them reduce the events of such failures by more than 75%. This can improve the bottom line of the company.

Let us know in case of such problems at response@microsystemservices.com. We will be glad to be of any assistance.

OVCD- Over Voltage Cut-off Device


Over Voltage Cut off device (OVCD)

Cut section view of OVCD


Micro Systems Services has successfully developed one of the most powerful and unique protection devices – simply called the OVCD–Over Voltage Cut-off Device. The OVCD is a marvel of ingenuity and engineering and has a specially designed chip at the heart of the product.

This rugged, compact and low cost device is absolutely dependable to perform the task it has been designed for, that is, protect all equipment and instruments connected to it. 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?

1.No problems due to voltage fluctuation.
2.Zero downtime
3.Your equipment becomes more rugged
4.Less service calls = Increased profitability + Increased credibility.
5.Better perception of quality of your system in the minds of the customers
6.Increases the chances of repeat sales or referral sales.

USP:

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
Goodwill lost Yes Incalculable
Customer’s loss Yes Significant
Disturbing to business focus Yes Significant( both to customersand vendor)
Replacement of product Product cost Capital Loss

How it works.

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?

1.Superior protection
2.Occupies less space
3.Lightweight
4.Transformer less design
5.Portable.
