Appliance Guard


This circuit protects home appliances from low voltage. When the voltage in the AC lines drop below the normal voltage, the circuit cut off  power to the appliance and keep it off till the normal voltage resumes. This gadget is useful to protect appliances like Fridge which may over heat if the line voltage drops below 180 volts. Voltage drop also increases the current consumption in Fridge due to over stress on the compressor.

Compact Fluorescent Lamp


Compact Fluorescent Lamp or CFL is the energy saving lamp designed to provide adequate light at the expense of low current.CFL uses less power around one fifth of an ordinary bulb and has long life.CFL is designed to emit Soft white light using the phosphor formulations.CFL comes in two forms like integrated and non integrated CFLs. In integrated type, the tube combines with an electronic ballast as a single unit while in non integrated type, ballast and tube are separate units so that the tube can be replaced.AC and DC CFLs are available.CFL generally has a life span of 6000 to 20000 hours.

Induction Heating


Induction heating is the heating of an electrically conducting material using the energy from Electromagnetic radiation. The process of electromagnetic induction creates Eddy currents (Foucault current) in the conductor and by the process, the resistance causes the conducting material to heat up due to Joule heating. Induction cooking is the Flameless cooking that exploits the ferromagnetic property of some metals and electromagnetic induction.
