Voltage Regulator / UPS

A voltage regulator is required for all machines using household electricity. http://am.co.za/ This eliminates power-surge damage to electronic components. A UPS device containing voltage regulation functions is therefore a priority for every household.

Any electronic machinery relying on household electricity, which is standard 220v / 50Hz here in South Africa, http://am.co.za/ should always be used in conjunction with a voltage regulator or a UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply) plug.

We do not repair/replace any power-surge damaged components/machines. http://am.co.za/ The quality guarantee for electronic components or whole machinery becomes null and void if machines/components have been connected directly into a city-power source.

Eskom Electricity vs. China Electricity

220V/50Hz Electricity

Almost all our machines contain China-made electronic components. http://am.co.za/ South Africa and China use the identical household electricity standard, which is 220V voltage and 50Hz frequency. In China, almost always, the voltage of electricity is underrated; 180V is quite common in China. Eskom provides good power despite its frequent price hikes. 240V voltage is quite popular in South Africa and 280V is not rare at all.

When technicians in China make electronic appliances, they gear them to low voltage usage. http://am.co.za/ Such devices, when used here in South Africa at a higher voltage risk being "cooked".

For this reason, we require all our clients to use Voltage Regulators for their machines.

Voltage Regulator or UPS

UPS stands for Uninterruptable Power Supply. http://am.co.za/ Technically, a UPS is a voltage regulator plus a battery. A UPS is easy to find and inexpensive to buy. We therefore strongly recommend that our clients purchase a UPS for use with all electronic equipment, thus guarding against power transient fault and unstable voltages.
