Electrical Power Quality

How to Select a Power Conditioning Unit – Constant-voltage transformers which provide voltage regulation, filter noise, and suppress surges to protect connected equipment.

Power Conditioning for Critical Home Office Equipment

I’m looking for a Power Conditioning Unit and need someone to point me in the right direction as far as what to buy.

The power used would be ‘equivalent’ to, I’d say, 2 whole house central-air units.

I believe I have single-phase 220 service but am not 100% sure on that.

I am not so concerned about voltage drops but very concerned about spikes and wave’s in power in the 220 lines. My machines are such that I can not get parts for them easily and a power problem would be disaster.

Ive looked on Grainger but am confused as to what is there. Many of the regulators are 3-phase and I don’t know what a conditioner does.

Thanks for the help.

Regards
D.
