V.P.S. is a unique, complete, three way power input system, that charges a series of two or more, 200 amp hours (approx), deep cycle batteries. The system includes two inverters one in full time use the other comes on automatically when the power fails, to convert 12 volt DC back to 240 volt AC (up to two 500 watt inverters on our largest model V.P.S. 2 for built in added back up, and extra 240 volt power). This is used to operate all the items on the list, other than lighting where provision is made for four or more 12 volt DC lights (that do not need 240 volt AC) to come on automatically in selected rooms the instant the power fails i.e. no need to rush around in the dark looking for torches, candles matches, or lanterns.
The V.P.S. generator uses a heavy duty automotive type alternator , with auto start ON and OFF to which we have fitted our unique, purpose designed regulator, to deliver maximum output to the batteries on charge. A standard automobile regulator is not suitable for battery charging, as it is designed to cut in when a load (such as car headlights) is turned on. Our V.P.S. generator can deliver full output, without damaging the storage batteries, right up to 95% of full charge . The V.P.S. generator is capable of putting 50 plus amps, back into the battery system, charging the entire bank as required.
The big plus of this unique arrangement is that the generator only runs when needed, reducing noise considerably as an occasional item only. Even more importantly, the system does not fail when the generator fuel runs out, as the storage batteries are at that time fully recharged. The storage batteries go on supplying the 12 volt DC lighting and, via the inverter, the 240 volt AC equipment. Our inverters are more than 96% efficient with a modified sine wave safe for all electronic equipment, and at all times are backed up with the solar panels.
The heart of the V.P.S. system though, is our specially developed V.P.S. master controller. This unit is a first of its type in the world and consists of:
The entire V.P.S. system is unique in many ways. It gives you a core mission critical back up with all the most needed items, without putting such a dent in the budget as to price it out of reach of most people. At the same time, for those who want to increase the load it can deliver, its easy module form allows for later owner additions (batteries, solar panels, and extra inverters).
We provide the following items, plus a booklet for self installation, tips and circuit diagrams:
You provide on-site, the deep cycle batteries that we recommend, cables, and conduits.
