Load Shedding Home Solutions Packages
The installation of a battery backup solution can be a great way to counter load shedding.In the event of a power outage, the system is powered by an inverter and a battery pack.There are a number of locations where the system can be installed, and it is completely automatic.It consists of a modified inverter with a battery charger, an automatic changeover switch, and a large battery bank.
Load Shedding Back Up Systems: How do they work?
In the event of a power outage, the extra large battery charger will keep the batteries fully charged until there is power again.As soon as a power outage occurs, the backup system automatically switches over to the inverter, which continues to provide power to the equipmentStandard appliances like fridges, TVs, DSTV decoders, microwaves, and fans are not affected.
When utility power returns, the whole procedure is reversed and the unit will switch back to ESKOM and will automatically start re-charging the batteries. Your equipment remains connected to the system even when power is restored. The whole process is fully automatic.
There is a slight break when an inverter-based long backup system switches to backup power.It is hardly noticeable when Sinetech’s higher quality systems switch over in a very short time.Due to the larger battery chargers found in inverter backup systems, larger battery sets can be installed which results in much longer backup times .
