Difference between C.V.T and U.P.S
1. Constant Voltage Transformer (C.V.T) :
It is an instrument used to protect our electronic devices from voltage surges and spikes. It is a kind of magnetic transformer with a capacitor connected across the secondary winding of the transformer.
2. Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) :
It is used to supply power to devices for a fixed amount of time without stopping even when there are is no incoming power supply.
Difference between C.V.T and U.P.S :
|Power Failure||Does not work in the case of power failure.||Provides backup using power failure.|
|Battery||There is no battery involved.||The battery is involved for backup purposes.|
|Power surge and spike||Provides safety against power surge and spike.||IT needs CVT installed inside it for protection.|
|Power Capacity||500 W or 0.5 KVA.||Few watts to hundred kilowatts.|
|Main Use||Maintain stable voltage.||Provide backup during a power failure.|
|Power Persistent||It is almost 8 milliseconds.||Mostly 15-30 minutes.|
|Components||High-voltage resonant winding and a Capacitor.||Rectifier, UPS Batteries, Inverter, Static Bypass Switch.|
|Size||Slightly smaller than UPS.||Slightly larger than UPS.|
|Pricing||Cheaper than UPS.||Costlier than CVT.|
|Noise||CVT usually creates more noise.||Creates less noise than CVT.|
