This short video explains why modern electronic voltage regulators, like the UST MiniEVR™, should be specified instead of ferroresonant transformers in cases where the load is 2kVA or larger.

  • EVRs operate at up to 99% efficiency at all times, while ferros typically operate at efficiencies of only 75% to 80%, and frequently operate at efficiencies as low as 50% – wasting electricity and generating unnecessary carbon.
  • EVRs run silent and cool and can be installed indoors or out, while ferros are noisy and hot and must be installed in a protected indoor environment.
  • EVRs are specified to match the load exactly, while ferros must be oversized by a factor of 2x to 2.5x.
