Domestic and Commercial Applications

The Powerguard fully integrated off-grid power solution is the ultimate in balanced power production for both domestic and commercial applications. The system comprises of an efficient generator, matched with the Powerguard PS System and robust deep discharge batteries. This sophisticated micro-generation system is optimised to provide automatic and reliable power for every minute of the day, in the most efficient way possible.

How It Works

Using a stand-alone generator to power an application means you either have to leave it running, or manually start it as and when required. The first option uses masses of fuel and increases maintenance costs, while the second option is clearly very inconvenient. By matching a Powerguard PS System with an efficient auto-start generator, these issues become a thing of the past. 

Our system automatically manages your auto-start generator to ensure electricity is available 24/7, whilst at the same time reducing the run-time of the generator. It uses the surplus power from the generator to charge the battery bank and uses the stored DC power in the battery bank to power the inverter, which provides pure sine wave 230V AC power when the generator is not running. 

As a direct result of the generator not needing to run for so long, you benefit from significant savings in fuel and maintenance costs. Another benefit of our PS System is that any equipment sensitive to power spikes can be used with confidence, as the AC output from the inverter is in most cases “cleaner” than mains electricity.

PS System Features

The PS System is the ultimate solution for integrated off grid power supply and management for domestic, farm, military or business. Here are five of its core features:

  • 24/7 reliable mains equivalent power (230V AC @ 50Hz, pure sine wave) for mixed load applications.
  • All elements of the integrated solution are supplied from a single reliable supplier.
  • Rapid installation and easy operation.
  • Rugged and reliable equipment designed to offer a long service life and reduction in fuel and maintenance costs.
  • Maximised fuel efficiency of the generator which automatically runs for periods of heavy electrical use and battery charging.

Renewable Electricity Options

The sophisticated microprocessors in the PS System can accommodate additional battery charging from renewable electricity generators such as wind turbines, hydro generation systems, and solar photovoltaic (PV) panels. These renewable electricity options offer further fuel savings and further carbon dioxide reduction, reducing the need to run the generator.
