Why does an PCS100 AVC not need batteries

Andrew Hiscock, Sales Manager Power Protection

ABB's answer

The PCS100 AVC does not require batteries, capacitors etc to correct sags, swells or provide voltage regulation. The PCS100 AVC uses the utility supply to provide additional energy during a Sag.
