UST MiniEVR

The UST MiniEVR™ is an industrial-grade automatic voltage regulator featuring a non-full-power semiconductor design.

The MiniEVR continuously monitors output voltage and quickly switches transformer taps when voltage falls outside regulation range. The MiniEVR™ automatic voltage regulator continuously conditions power with no operator or programming required. In the event of a malfunction, the automatic bypass actuates to isolate power electronics and controls while maintaining power to the load.

Industrial-grade means our MiniEVR is compatible with all load types and load-power factors and provides a minimum 1,000% fault-clearing capability. Unlike computer-grade products, the MiniEVR is designed for frequent high-inrush current and low-power factor loads without the need to oversize the product or sacrifice reliability.

MiniEVR Features

  • Highest overload capacity available for compatibility with all load types
  • Highest fault-clearing capacity available for reliable operation of protective devices
  • 99% efficiency for all but the lowest end of the load range
  • Continuous load current – no load current interruption on tap switching
  • Quickly corrects under/over voltage, sags, and swells
  • Automatic failsafe electronic bypass eliminates load current interruption in the event of a malfunction
  • Zero moving parts and fan-free design for increased reliability and no scheduled maintenance
  • Surge suppression and input circuit breaker are standard
  • Natural convection cooling

MiniEVR installation is simple. The unit arrives completely assembled and requires no programming, testing, measuring, setting of switches, or internal wiring. It installs much like a dry-type transformer: simply place the unit and make the input and output wiring connections.
