From everything to their logos, part numbers, form and original factory branding counterfeit items or cloned AVR’s are manufactured to look and feel exactly like originals. When placed side by side, an original AVR and a Chinese clone are 100% identical but the difference lies on the inside.
Automatic Voltage Regulators, or AVRs, are used to regulate AC voltages. They are widely used in industrial applications as generators depend on their ability to stabilize voltage. Therefore, it is crucial that you use a quality AVR to ensure compatibility and quality performance.
Since AVRs can be quite expensive sometimes companies opt for cheaper ones. This is where counterfeit products come into view such as clones from China. When it comes to AVRs, the downside of a made in China AVR is the poor quality and inability to sustain performance for a long period of time. Low-grade components are used in these “factories” to produce fake AVRs. Hence, the product itself can cause damage to other electrical components or the entire AC alternator due to compatibility issues. It could end up costing you hundreds if not thousands of dollars. For instance, buying a knock off Iphone may seem like the “cheaper” alternative however it will cost you more money and headaches in the end as the product starts to break down and lack of support from the supplier will not be available. Finally, since these clones are unauthorized copies, the warranty of the product themselves and the entire generator package are going to be void if generator is still under warranty.
If you are in doubt about whether you are seeing a genuine avr or not, please email us the website link and one of our experts will confirm for you at no charge.
Another indicator that you may have a knockoff AVR is that they are a lot cheaper than the original ones and the clones are sold on major bidding websites. Our team and a partnership with the OEM’s have identified clones being sold on the following sites:
- made in china
- Any supplier with a website from China
Use our website as a reference and compare the pricing. If it looks too good to be true most likely you are seeing a fake original.
