Vanguards Power (VP) is a leader in design, development and manufacture of 3rd Generation Power Optimisation Systems. VP Systems use state-of-the-art computer control to regulate and stabilise all incoming voltage into any building or site. All VP Single and 3 Phase Systems have our unique Dynamic Digital Voltage Control (DDVC) system. Output Voltage settings can be changed by the User at any time without site power interruption - which further increases energy savings, more than any other Power or Voltage Optimisation System in the World.
VP range of single and 3 Phase Power Optimisation Systems are called: PropSava and LiteSava.
Where Sites experience main over-voltage delivery, electrical equipment is overpowered; power is wasted and all electrical equipment suffers premature failure with reduced life expectancy.
Sites/buildings that use VP Power Optimisation Products will benefit from:
Paying less for their electricity.
Reduction in CO2 emissions and carbon footprint; consuming less power means less power has to be generated and therefore less CO2 emitted.
Reduction in Carbon Tax liability.
Reduction in electrical equipment breakdowns, downtime and labour costs.
Reduction in premature electrical equipment failure and the cost of early replacement.
Choice of Automatic or Total Disconnect Product to Site By-Pass Systems.
Choice of External Protections System - Current or Voltage Surge Protection - which eliminates damage to site electrical equipment.
7 standard Computer controlled safety systems to monitor performance & power.
Solid state system eliminates mechanical wear-out rates and servicing.
All Products independently certified to European CE International IEC Safety standards.
Manufactured in ISO 9001 and 9002 factories.
15 year history of manufacture.
Future Proof Investment & Greater Site Savings
Single & 3 Phase 3rd Generation SCRV PropSava and LiteSava are fitted with DDVC which permits the User to change the Output voltage without interruption of Site power
With DDVC the System can be matched to the needs of any site of any age, any location.
Power Quality Management System - Manage power usage over LAN/WAN Network.
Where Are the PropSava and LiteSava Used?
VP PropSava and LiteSava are increasingly used in mains over-voltage supply areas of Europe, Australasia and Africa as a method to save power and electricity costs; reducing premature failure of electrical equipment and lowering maintenance costs.
The PropSava and LiteSava is also being used in countries where there is NOT enough voltage to start electrical equipment; and therefore provides a valuable service of maintaining the operational status of key sites such as hospitals, schools, public services, essential industry and commerce in where power is of poor quality and unreliable.
Savings Using the PropSava and LiteSava
In the UK, Europe, Australasia and South Africa, PropSava units fitted have achieved average energy savings of up to 26% and an average of 13% over the last five years, making this one of the fastest-growing energy saving techniques on the market. LiteSava units have achieved up to 42% cost savings and an average of 22% over the last 5 years.

5. Auto Regulation OFF
1. OVP (Over Voltage Protection): If output voltage is above 240V (or at User Setting) maximum for 10 seconds the system will activate automatically By-Pass and activates the alarm
2. UVP (Under voltage Protection): If output voltage is under 195V (or under User Setting) for 10 seconds the system will automatically enter by-pass state and activate the alarm.
3. OLP (Over Load Protection): If output current exceeds 95% (or at User Setting) of maximum rated current for 20 seconds, then system will automatically enter By-Pass state and activate the alarm.
4. Optional Extra - Current or Voltage 20KA, 30KA, 25KV or 40KV.
5. In the event of any internal fault with SCR, Protection fuse, or external fault such as over/under voltage, over load etc. the system will activate Auto Regulation OFF with audible alarm (buzzer).
