In our time, everyone is interested in the question of energy saving, since every year electricity does not become cheaper, and consumption grows. Recently, a rumor appeared on the Internet about a device that saves electricity in the network, and therefore your money. You will learn more about these devices in this article, and also whether it is possible to make devices for saving energy by your own hands.
How true is this rumor
Advertising this device claims that you can save more than fifty percent of the electricity consumed. In our time - this is a very correct advertising move. However, you need to find out how true this statement.
So, is this really all the same, or a lie? True, but only partly, because in our country you can easily get caught in the hoax. To understand the principle of operation, and actually check the veracity of the statement, you need to understand the device of the device itself.
It consists of two main components: the case and the internal chip. The case is the most expensive part of the device. Most often it is high strength plastics. The variety of colors is also very large, which is convenient for different user preferences. The case itself also consists of two parts, more precisely the halves, which are fastened with either screws or latches.
The interior of the device consists of:
- Electronic Board;
- Film capacitor;
- Panel with indicators.
As you can see, the system is not the most complex, but there is no need to make premature conclusions.
The second important detail to which attention should be paid is the film capacitor. Its task is to compensate for the current consumed. But because of its small capacity, it cannot withstand several powerful household appliances. Therefore, it is not recommended to use it on an “industrial” scale, that is, it can be used on small-scale equipment.
Is it possible to assemble the device yourself?
Because of its simplicity, some make similar devices themselves. The bottom line is that your home appliances, even while they are not in working condition, but connected to the electrical network, they still consume a certain amount of energy. Therefore, a device was created that controls the flow of excess electricity to the devices, which, by the way, guarantees your device a long life, since the voltage drop does not threaten your equipment.
Many experts argue that they can easily reproduce the device to save energy, and also argue that there is nothing in it beyond the new, since such economists of electricity have long existed and they are embedded in many modern appliances.
How to design a device to save energy?
The principle of operation of a homemade device is based on the load of the electrical network, in which alternating current flows. It looks like a block with two indicators, which are made in the form of diodes. The film capacitor inside catches the high frequency pulses and transforms them. The high-frequency impulse is in any case present in any electrical network, because regardless of your meter, even if it is electronic, it still passes frequencies that are more sensitive to electricity.
As you know, any counter that is installed in any house or apartment has a certain error, it is small, but it still has a place to be. The reading of electricity consumption is carried out thanks to these pulses, which may not always carry truthful information. The device to save removes this error, but the difference you can not particularly feel, it all depends on the status of the wiring in your home, as well as the consumption itself.
With certain knowledge and skills, you can collect almost anything. The device to save electricity is no exception. What materials are needed for this and how? All materials you can easily find on any radio market. Also on the Internet is full of circuits for assembling and soldering chips, as well as instructions. So, the following details are needed:
- The main element is the microcircuit, which should be soldered by a specialist, since you will not find ready-made ones on sale, unless there is a worker left from the old device;
- Power Rectifier;
- Film capacitor with a minimum power of 5.18 microfarad;
- Several screws of the right size;
- Enclosure, preferably plastic or rubberized;
- Switch, if needed;
- A pair of diodes that will serve as indicators of voltage drops in the network;
- Female outlet.
All these parts need to be soldered in turn and fixed in the case, after which the case can be closed and twisted with screws, well, or if it is on the latches, then just close it tightly. As mentioned above, in no case do not use metal shells, it is contrary to safety and can lead to short circuit in the network.
You make this device at your own peril and risk, and without proper knowledge and skills you should not climb into electrical appliances, and even interfere with the power supply system of the network. Therefore, we recommend to purchase devices made at the factory of the manufacturer.
From the above it can be concluded that devices for energy saving are not a myth, they really can in some cases help reduce energy costs. Also, the device can be made independently.
We hope that this article has given you an idea of how to assemble appliances for saving energy by your own hands.
