  • ACS Vesuvius - Power Requirement

    Hi Fellow CSers,

    Does the ACS Vesuvius require a 15 Amp GPO? I'm currently currently considering this as my next upgrade. Thanks.

    Jason.

    It's 10A Jason

      Thanks Chris. That does make things a whole lot easier. I'm guessing not all 2300W is drawn at the same time? Calculate current draw for 2300W works out to be

      2300/(0.8 x 230) = 12.5 Amps.

        No need to use a PF of 0.8...
        90% of the load is resistive.

          Thanks for pointing that out Mal.
          Assuming 100% resistive load, the power factor would be 1. Making the current draw at exactly 10 Amps. Would that be correct?

            The machine is protected by a 10A fuse.

                In a perfect world, yes...

                  Keep in mind the Vesuvius remains in standby mode if you plan on using the built-in 7 day on/off timer. In which case it wouldn't hurt to add a little surge protection. I'm running one of these between my Vesuvius and the GPO (Thor C2 - Smart Filter Duo) - better than nothing I suppose...
