The Power buddy power compensator uses a combination of filtration and correction techniques to improve the efficiency of various appliances and circuits. The intelligent technology optimizes the voltage and current demands thus reducing the active power/KWH demands. It also acts as a voltage stabilizer by storing energy for up to 10 seconds and therefore supplies load with proper voltage during momentary power surges.

The typical Inductive loads include the following:

  • Fridges
  • Pool Pumps
  • Freezers
  • Air conditioners
  • Washing Machines
  • Vacuum Cleaners
  • Tumble Dryers etc.

Installation of the Powerbuddy is very easy. For safe and reliable operation, we recommend that the unit is plugged into a wall socket closest to your distribution board (DB) and not an extension lead.

The device can store energy for up to 10 seconds after it is switched off, therefore wait for at least 10 seconds between switching off the mains and unplug the device.
