Helpful ba talaga ang Power on Delay?

Dumaan ako sa Hardware store tapos pinupush sa akin dun yung mga power on delay products.

Just wanted to ask, may mga gumagamit ba ng power on delays dito? kamusta yung experience? okay ba talaga?

Comments

  • been using it mga 10 years na, ok naman at least pag wala kami sa bahay at nag brownout eh automatic na mag on ang mga ref after 5 mins.

    same with our aircons pag tulog ka at nag brown out nag sandali at di mo namalayan. no problem na. at tulad kanina nag fluctuate ang current, medyo malaks yung dip so nag off kusa yung power delay at after 5 mins nag on.
  • thanks impulzz! hmm siguro nga i should get power on delays din para hindi na rin ako mamroblema pag brownouts.

    if i may ask, what brand of power on delay are you using? have you changed power on delays for the past 10 years or same unit pa rin?
  • important ang mga power on delays para maprotect yung mga appliances from power surges. :)
  • can i get brand recommendations for power on delays?
  • Yes it is helpful for highly sensitive equipment like computers, servers, and some appliances etc.
  • Search kayo sa sulit.com, maraming sellers dun: http://www.sulit.com.ph/index.php/classifieds+directory/q/power+on+delay
    How about you, what do you use at home?

    Better sana if may brands na masabi so I can compare them rather than go to a hardware store blindly.

    Any recos?

    I'm a bit of a skeptic about the power delay gadgets. Unless, perhaps those gadgets you guys a buying have UL listed accreditation. If not. Then it's no different from food supplements with the " No approved therapeutic claim". With no product accreditation it could pose more danger than good. I rather recommend Idle Current Power Stopper Strips.

  • What's idle current power stopper strips?

    and what's UL?

    and what's UL?

    Idle current power stopper strips is like an extension cord that automatically cut off the circuit when an appliance has been idle. It's like unplugging your appliances when not in use.

    UL is Underwriters Laboratory. It's product standard and safety qualification. If your electric or electronic gadget odes not have this mark it means it was not tested for safety or efficiency. UL is the standard mark from American Manufactured products while in Europe they have CE for European Conformity standards. Locally manufactured products have PS or Philippine Standard.

    If you don't see these symbols on your Power-On-Delay gadget or to any electrical appliance for that matter do not buy it.
  • thanks cyberfunk! will double check :)

    It's innovatronix

    Ganito itsura niya, sinearch ko sa internet yung picture niya: pod10.gif

    I saw their webpage. No ISO certification for the local company who made them. I doubt if they got the Certification. I'm sorry but I'm still skeptical.
  • Checked out their website na rin. Matagal na yung Innovatronix sa business and they're also exporting their products so they seem reliable naman.

    In my case, i'm very happy with my power on delay naman.
  • Mukhang okay naman nga yang tronix product na yan.

    Meron pa silang Aircon Timer at Refrigerator Power Saver with delay din.

    I am actually considering the Aircon Timer since walang timer ang aircon namin.

    Interesting issue for locally made electrical products sold primarily to the local market -- what electrical certification, if any, should manufacturers get or should consumers expect. Is it possible/appropriate/reasonable in terms of cost to get a UL or CE listing? Didn't know there was a local equivalent (PS) as mentioned above. Is this PS thing really active in testing? Never seen anything marked PS.

    ISO certification is different animal -- management. 'Good to have' but not necessarily worth the significant expense and documentation effort to get the certification, depending on company station in life. I probably wouldn't hold up every local producer to this certification standard.

    Good questions though to ask any local maker of electrical devices. Happen to know the founder of the mentioned company and will try to remember to bring certifications up next time I meet him.
