The TVR-LCU unit is designed to provide cost savings at installation stage with the added bonus of additional electrical protection for the lantern, control gear & CMS system.

The TVR-LCU unit combines “Voltage Regulation” and “Line Conditioning” in one compact unit that fits within the TOFCO extension box it can be used with a Cut-out Unit or Switched Isolator Unit.

Volt drop is a major concern for lighting designers due to the long length of cable runs within street lighting.

The traditional solution to volt drop is to increase the cable size ensuring that the voltage at the end of the run fall within the standards as stated within Appendix 12, Table 12A of the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations BS7671

“The volt drop between the origin of any installation and any load point should not exceed 3.5%”

TVR ASSY EXPLODE

The TVR-LCU unit boosts the voltage at each lighting point, ensuring a constant voltage is delivered throughout the installation and  eliminating the VOLT DROP issue over cable runs.

The result is that smaller cables can be used providing instant cost and carbon reduction savings.

The TVR-LCU unit has two key components –

TVR – Tofco Voltage Regulator

LCU – Line Conditioning Unit

TVR FEATURES & BENEFITS

  • Improve Power Quality
  • Power supply conditioning – ensures stable and constant power is delivered to each lighting point.
  • Voltage regulation – prolongs lamp & control gear life.
  • Reduction in cable sizes, instant cost saving on purchase price of cable.
  • Smaller cables are quicker to install and terminate, saving on labour costs.
  • Reduction in energy waste = reduced running costs.

LCU FEATURE within the product includes the protection and filtering against the following:-

  • Spikes and electrical noise.
  • Sags and Brownouts.
  • Voltage Harmonics.
  • Momentary interruptions and mains failures.
  • Transient voltages & lightening strikes.
  • Soft Start.
  • Minimise power up surges.
  • Reduced maintenance.

The TVR-LCU will take the burden off cables, connections, contactors and the mains supply transformer when a large number of Public Lights are switched-on sequentially.
