Surge in interest for voltage optimisation

Marshall-Tufflex Energy Management reports growing interest in its power-saving/metering systems for installations ranging from hospital to a prison, library, council offices, motorcycle showroom and an ice-cream manufacturer. The company’s Voltis voltage optimisation system has been specified by local authorities — including Redbridge, Reigate and Dartford. It has also been specified by two universities in London, a major UK airport and a leading entertainment and conference venue.

The Voltis logic-controlled ‘intelligent’ voltage-optimisation system can deliver power savings of up to 20%. It offers important advantages over basic step-down transformers, better matching of power input with demand to achieve greater savings and safeguard the integrity of the power supply through a built-in bypass.

Jon Chamberlain, the company’s national sales manager, says, ‘The demand for energy-saving/monitoring solutions remains incredibly strong. However, the market has matured, and customers are now looking for a trusted manufacturer/supplier that offers a little extra, such as Voltis — which offers greater power savings than older-style optimisers, switches to bypass if there’s a problem with mains supply and improves and maintains the integrity of the site power supply.’
