Following on from the VPhase VX1, the company has now launched two new units; VX2 and VX5 which lower the supply voltage from 245V to 220V. They are designed to ensure that almost all electrical appliances perform to their required specification but with the reduced power output which can achieve a saving of up to 12 percent on electricity bills.
Whilst VPhase says it recommends splitting the resistive loads for optimal energy saving, there is the option to install directly into the meter tails if required. The new units are designed to appeal to both the retrofit and new build markets, as they can be supplied with an integrated 6 way or 16 way distribution board.
VX2 is a high specification unit designed for homes and single phase installations, whilst VX5 is fitted with a high capacity transformer and is aimed at larger homes and small businesses.
Once fitted, VPhase products come with a 5 year warranty and, according to the company, have a typical pay back of 3 – 5 years depending on the overall level of electricity used in the property.
