go to the Active Voltage Conditioners product page Andrew Hiscock asked on May 1st, 2014 in Active Voltage Conditioners

When would I need to use the PCS100 Active Voltage Conditioner?

Andrew Hiscock, Sales Manager Power Protection

ABB's answer

End-users of the PCS100 AVC have experienced problem with their plant and equipment be it commercial or industrial due to disturbances in the utility voltage feeding their facility. These disturbances (voltage sags, swells and regulations issues) are beyond their control and if these issues cause them to loose money, from plant stoppages causing lost production, unscheduled down time, equipment damage, quality problems, down stream customer dissatisfaction, increased maintenance then there is a business case for installing the power protection equipment like the PCS100 AVC.
