With over 70 years of continuous manufacturing in the UK, and tens of thousands of products worldwide, it’s easy to see why Watford Control are the world’s leading brand of voltage stabilisers and voltage management systems.
Our electromechanical stabilisers have been in operation for over 60 years and our first solid state stabiliser was patented in 1972, many of which are still in operation today and still sets the benchmark for today’s modern products.
Despite the passage of time, the general principle of stabilising AC voltages in factories, hospitals, military installations airports or wherever you may need us, remains largely unchanged and that’s why over the last 70 years, Watford Control are still the #1 brand around the world.
Our continuous improvements in technology and manufacturing processes have enabled us to offer integrated PFC to all our stabilisers (at a significant cost advantage over separate systems) and new Solid State stabilisers up to 4mVA in capacity.
We take the lead when it comes to designing products and we come up with unique solutions to your voltage stabilisation and optimisation needs, many of which are patented to us. Our EM/EMS turbo range, BE solid-state stabilisers and new Powersaver range of voltage optimisers are just a few examples of the power conditioning technology which benefits our customers every day.
Our systems offer surge-free operation and unrivalled reliability. Whether you want the convenience of a ready-made system, IP00 for your own product range or a bespoke device, we’ve got the solution to your national and international power supply requirements.
