ECOSTAB automatic voltage optimisers
-What is energy saving system ECOSTAB?
Ecostab automaticvoltage optimisers are one of the solutions offered by new technologies to users. These devices comply with the requirements of IEC 60038 for electric equipment operating tolerances and supply an operating voltage which minimises consumption without impairing performance or reducing reliability.
This power supply difference allows to:
a. obtain a significant saving of energy;
b. extend the working life of electric equipment. Ecostab voltage optimisers prevent devices from being powered at higher values than the rated voltage. For example, it is a known fact that the life of sodium bulbs is reduced by 50% when they are powered at a voltage 10% higher than their rated value;
c. secure a significant reduction of carbon dioxide emissions. This corresponds to approximately 630 g for every saved kWh of energy.
– How does energy saving system ECOSTAB works?
IEC 60038 establishes that the electric equipment must be able to work correctly at an input voltage within ±10% of the nominal value, that is from 253V to 207V for single-phase devices and from 440V to 360V for three-phase devices. This is an essential feature for all electric devices because energy producers establish that the supplied voltage may vary within these limits contractually. As a consequence, if a load is supplied at a value close to the lower operating tolerance limit (-8%) also when the mains voltage assumes the higher value established by contract (+10%), the difference between 253V and 207V in absolute terms is 18%.
minimises consumption without impairing performance or reducing reliability.
