Satic has developed a series of line conditioning, harmonic reducing, and energy saving products. This product line, known as Global Energy Savers (GES), is compatible for residential and small to medium commercial applications. The products provide unparalleled benefits to customers using Satic's proprietary corrected wave-form ballast system technology.
Satic Savers provide:
The GES corrects the electrical system in a home or office in real time, reducing heat, lowering amperage and lessening the harmful effects of "electric noise" and negative harmonics in the system (fig. 1). This results in decreased consumption of electricity.
Visualize the electric power coming into a home or business in the form of waves that are slightly askew (fig. 2). The GES utilizes proprietary harmonic-resistant power factor correction modules to correct the electrical phase, causing the waves to move in synergy with each other (fig. 3). Satic units also protect against power surges and increase the capacity of the electrical panel by lowering amperage and lowering temperature. The combination of the above factors creates less waste of electrical energy while increasing the life of inductive devices, resulting in a lower energy bill and lower maintenance costs for the equipment.
Capacitors have been around for 250 years. What's different about the GES units is that instead of using a traditional capacitor bank design, Satic has incorporated cutting-edge technology, creating a compact, integrated energy management system with the use of new X2 Harmonic Resistant power factor correction modules (Fig. 4). This allows the GES to use smaller, higher quality components that are able to switch on and off in the nano, making them more efficient and effective than traditional capacitors and increasing their accessibility for more applications, more businesses and more consumers. Because energy usage is regulated by these compact, multi-board smart capacitor banks, home and business owners achieve greater than 95% optimization.
Normally, there is excess non-working power coming from the electric panel that electronics and motors shrug off as heat, causing them to work harder and shortening their effective life span. The GES turns this wasted excess energy into real working power, thereby reducing heat, prolonging the life of electronic devices, lowering the electric bill and providing a safer environment by reducing the electromagnetic field emitted by the motors.
Electromagnetic field: The electric field is created by voltage. Plugging a cord into an outlet will create an electric field in the air surrounding the device now plugged in. The magnetic field is created by flowing electric current. The higher the voltage and greater the current, the stronger the electromagnetic field.1 Electromagnetic fields of all frequencies represent one of the most common and fastest growing environmental influences.2 The GES units reduce the EMF caused by motors and other devices. (See the World Health Organization EMF page for more information.)
Electrical "noise": Any unwanted electrical signals that may be generated within equipment or transmitted from other equipment. Many devices, such as fluorescent lights and computers, generate and transmit unwanted signals. We hear this as buzzing or low hissing and possibly see it as speckles on a TV screen. The GES units reduce electrical noise.
Power Factor: Power Factor indicates how much wasted energy (usually in the form of heat) that is produced by a load (motor, appliance, etc.) and is expressed as a decimal or percentage. It is simply working power (watts) divided by non-working or apparent power (volt amps). When it is "perfect", i.e. 1.0 or 100%, it means the load is not wasting any energy when it operates. If, for example, a load requires 18.7 watts to operate, but the volt amp reading is 22, the load has 0.85 or 85% power factor. The lower the power factor, the more inefficient the operation of the motor, appliance, etc. According to a third-party study, common brand-name CFL bulbs that are thought to be efficient (GE, Sylvania, Phillips, etc.) actually have a power factor of only 55%-59% – whereas SaticPulse CFL bulbs operate at near-perfect 92%-95%!3GES units increase the power factor of all devices and appliances connected to the circuit (plug-in units) or in the house (wire-in).
Surge Protection: An increase in voltage above 120V in your home can damage your electronics, possibly even irreparable damage. If the increase lasts three nanoseconds (billionths of a second) or more, it's called a surge. If the increase lasts for one or two nanoseconds, it's called a spike. Both spikes and surges heat wires, straining electronic components and wearing them down over time or destroying them. Surge protectors safely divert this extra electricity, keeping it from reaching your electronics and allowing them to continue functioning with no interruption.4 The GES units are powerful surge protectors.
Negative Harmonics: Electricity flows in waves and electrical loads (such as computers, dimmers, TVs, etc.) can distort the current wave which, as it moves through wiring, distorts the voltage wave. These distortions in waveform are called harmonics (or 'negative harmonics', or 'harmonic distortion') and they cause overheating, malfunctions and may actually directly or indirectly destroy the load itself.5 Harmonics also cause problems such as tripping of circuit breakers, flickering of light bulbs, computer malfunctions and transformer failure.6
