Energy Efficiency
07 February 2023

Thanks to the acquisition of significant orders from both our sales team and our international sales channels, we share the launch of the Powersines ComEC continuous production line, our range of Voltage Optimisers dedicated to energy saving.

Powersines features

The energy saving device Powersines ComEC ensures an immediate reduction in consumption. Here are the features that make it a modern energy efficiency system:

  • Optimisation of the voltage delivered
    The voltage provided by power companies in general oscillates in the range of ±10% and depends on the electricity demands, on the quality of the electricity distribution infrastructure, but also on the site’s distance from the production plant. Power surges, especially overloads, may negatively influence the good operation of the electrical equipment, of outlet points and of all electronic devices.
  • Energy saving
    The electrical equipment available on the market is designed to work with a range of nominal voltages from more than 240V to less than 220V. Voltage greater than nominal voltage leads to the inefficient use of the equipment and power wastage. ComEC ensures a rapid return on investment by reducing the voltage to 220V and reducing the reactive power consumed.
  • Technology and Design
    The ComEC system was developed and created with a patented technology that makes it possible to dynamically control the voltage provided to electrical circuits. The heart of the technology developed is produced with power transformers controlled by a microprocessor. In contrast to multi-tap transformer systems, ComEC is highly reliable and does not compromise the quality of the power supply.
  • Improvement in energy quality
    ComEC is a “Power Quality Friendly” system. In fact, it provides a form of pure sine wave to all the electrical circuits, free of harmonic distortions and with a THD near zero. In addition, it mitigates and filters harmonic and voltage distortions, thus reducing the frequency of damage to electrical equipment. By adjusting the voltage to inductive loads, like air conditioners, compressors and pumps, it also helps to reduce the consumption of reactive power (Kvar) helping protect the environment and minimising the risk of sanctions from the energy provider.
  • High reliability
    Unlike systems based on solid-state components that require special thermal management devices, the design of ComEC ensures a high degree of robustness and can tolerate disturbed electrical environments, thanks to integrated protection mechanisms, such as the automatic internal bypass, the manual bypass, and the output protection circuit.

Powersines: how it works and where to use it

  • In what contexts does Powersines apply?
    The Powersines ComEC energy saving device finds its greatest application in commercial energy saving, and is ideal for retail outlets, public and private offices, and service companies.
  • How much can I save with Powersines?
    Powersines ComEC by Ortea Next is a universal energy controller for commercial applications that improves energy quality and reduces maintenance costs, saving up to 12% on your electricity bill (savings vary depending on the type of loads in the system).
  • Does the installation of Powersines require changes to the electrical system?
    The ComEC does not require any modification to the electrical system and thanks to its small size it can be easily connected to power supply switchboards. Dimensioning is straightforward and depends solely on the power value of the main switch.
    Powersines ComEC is installed downstream of the main switch of the installation and dynamically controls and stabilises the voltage supplied to all loads, generating immediate energy savings.
