New electro-dynamic voltage optimisation system launched

Following on the success of its existing Star® range of energy saving solutions, EMSc (UK) Ltd is proud to announce the launch of an innovative new system into the Powerstar collection.

Powerstar HV MAX is a low-loss amorphous core HV transformer with the award winning Powerstar Voltage Optimisation combined that allows for 11,000V input and electronically regulated 380v (or user regulated) output. The new innovative product will allow companies to save costs and reduce carbon emissions in both the High Voltage as well as the Low Voltage areas. Speaking about the company's latest offering EMSc (UK) Ltd managing director Dr Alex Mardapittas said: "Older transformers have high levels of standing losses and the majority of modern transformers used on commercial sites use Cold Rolled Grain Oriented steel within their core, which result in significant losses for buildings in comparison to amorphous steel. Powerstar HV MAX can be used to replace older transformers on existing sites, or be included in new build projects in order to provide the optimum voltage output for the site.

This will not only reduce standing losses by around 75%, but will also lower electricity costs by reducing on-site energy consumption." The Powerstar HV MAX, combines a low-loss transformer with the intelligent, electronic-dynamic technology that has been successfully used on the Powerstar MAX and Dr Alex Mardapittas added: "By utilising the electronic-dynamic technology of our MAX systems, Powerstar HV MAX ensures that voltage is supplied to a site at a constant level regardless of the input instability. This guarantees that when the grid voltage varies the HV MAX technology is able to hold the site voltage at the optimum level and maintain a higher level of savings." The new solution is particularly relevant for new build developments, where it can help achieve sustainability marks and high energy efficiency ratings through accreditations such as LEED.

Powerstar HV MAX is also ideal for sites with older transformers, and those that have previously been faced with physical space restrictions that make voltage optimisation installations difficult to implement. The system can be adopted by utility companies and is ideal for sites with secure data and critical operations such as office buildings, hotels, hospitals, supermarkets and education facilities. In addition to reducing standing losses and energy consumption, Powerstar HV MAX - which is wholly designed and manufactured in the UK - boasts a number of additional benefits, including simple installation and a payback period of less than 5 years.

The product has also been designed to be over 98% recyclable. As with all EMSc (UK) Ltd products the Powerstar HV MAX system comes with guaranteed savings. EMSc (UK) Ltd is currently celebrating over 10 years of British design and manufacturing success - it has been manufacturing the market leading voltage optimisation solution Powerstar at its headquarters in Yorkshire for over a decade. The company is accredited with the Made in Sheffield accolade in acknowledgement of the quality of its manufacturing process, its expansion into international markets, and the overall success of Powerstar, which is exported to countries including Cyprus, Australia, UAE, South Africa, Greece, Malta, Bahrain and Spain. The company has been awarded with ISO9001 and are an NICEIC approved contractor. For further information please email Powerstar
