28 February Avanty – your energy station and air compressor on-the-go February 28, 2019 General Whether you’re after an epic road trip to far-flung corners of South Africa or adventuring closer to home, there is an ideal companion to keep in your boot that will ensure your holiday stays awesome. Probe, South Africa’s leading importer and distributor of premium batteries, rotating electrics and air products, has recently added the impressive Avanty to their product line up. The Avanty energy station is a compact, multifunctional portable energy system that can act as a back-up power source to light up your campsite, a battery charger to jump-start a car or caravan, and an on-board air compressor with capabilities powerful enough to inflate a rubber dinghy. Despite the mighty capabilities packed into this all-in-one system, the Avanty is small, robust and lightweight at a mere 11kg, ensuring that it takes up the least amount of packing-space and can be moved around with minimal effort for any indoor or outdoor activity. What’s more, the Avanty is rechargeable both at home(AC) and in the car(DC). Most importantly though, it is what the Avanty can do for you on your holiday. If you’re faced with an unwelcome dead battery while on the road or camped out in the middle of nowhere, the Avanty will solve this problem thanks to its 400A start-up power that can jump-start cars, caravans, boats and any vehicle with a 12Vdc battery. If you require an energy station to charge your navigator, laptop, mp3-player or even electrical tools up to 300W, the Avanty will oblige. Need to inflate tyres, balls, small mattresses or dinghies? The Avanty’s built-in 10bar/260psi compressor, inflating tube with universal adaptor and set of 3 inflating needles will ensure you get the job done. As for emergencies, the Avanty comes with a built-in 7 LED emergency light and is capable of supplying 12V, 5V (USB) and 230V electricity due to an integrated 300 W Inverter so as to easily light up camping huts, fishing cabins and outdoor areas. The Avanty is also environmentally-friendly, noiseless and equipped with an automatic safety system. Probe CEO, Rick Rovelli, says “The Avanty is produced by global air compressor brand NUAIR, a trusted supplier of air compressors for both industrial and domestic use. The Avanty is an incredibly versatile product and we put it to the test at a recent agricultural show, where we used it jump-start 8 vehicles without running out of power. We also used it as source of light in the evenings and to charge our laptops. We were impressed by the capabilities of this compact but powerful product and it’s been flying off the shelves.” Technical Specifications: Functions: Portable & Rechargeable Power Inverter 230V AC (300W Maximum) 400A Cranking Power Jump-Starter Heavy duty cables & clamps 18 Bar(max) Air Compressor Tire Pressure Gauge 2 DC outlets 12V 2 USB port 5V 7 LED’s torchlight Storage Compartment Battery: High Grade Sealed Lead Acid(Maintenance Free) 20Ah Outputs: 230-240 V/AC 50HZ 2 x 12V/DC(Cigarette Lighter Socket) 2 x 5V/DC(USB) Safety Features: Reverse Protection and Alarm Overload Protection(Car type fuse) Short Circuit Protection Discharge Protection(Alarm) LED indicator lights for the 12V/20AH battery charge Voltmeter battery power test button Included Accessories Michellin-type inflation hose LED’s Torchlight Set of 3 inflation nozzels 230V/AC – 500mA Charger 12V/DC adapter for recharging by car dashboard lighter socket Unit Dimensions 330 x 250 x 270 mm Weight 11KG Related Articles New compressors from Probe keep mining industry safe and cool under pressure Mining is a tough environment, combining harsh physical conditions, long operational hours and cost pressures. Evolving compressed air technologies are increasingly playing a vital role in mining processes including exploration, extraction and treatment. Air compressors additionally provide a flexible and safe power source for powering drilling and piling machinery, pneumatic tools, material conveyors, and ventilation systems. Go Green, and Make Your Battery Last We know car batteries contain chemicals such as sulphuric acid and have to be carefully dealt with, especially when they die. The green thing to do is to squeeze as much life out of them as possible and decrease the overall amount of batteries that you are going to need in your lifetime. But how do you do this? Probe Launches Industrial Technologies Division and Brings Leading SCC Air Compressor to Local Market Probe, South Africa's largest importer of premium, maintenance-free, fit and forget batteries and a leader in rotating electrics, has established Probe Industrial Technologies. The new division is focused on providing quality air, power and safety solutions to industrial clients. Within this division is Air Power Technologies, which primarily distributes SCC compressors, a leading global brand of high quality air compressors. Probe brings Stanley Fatmax air compressors and tools to SA Probe, South Africa’s leading and largest importer and distributor of premium batteries and auto electrical parts, launches top international air compressor brand, Stanley Fatmax, into the local market. With exclusive distribution rights for Stanley Fatmax in South Africa, this latest offering in Probe’s comprehensive line up of premium products will enable the company to provide the complete power and air package to diverse customers across domestic, automotive, mining and industrial sectors. Probe Air, the Probe range of piston air compressors complements gold-standard line up From DIY enthusiasts and entrepreneurs to small and mid-sized businesses, air compression is often a critical commodity that is integral to the core business offering and as such must be able to perform at optimum levels. Yet in South Africa’s tough economic climate, smaller businesses make air compression choices based on cost, which can ultimately affect the quality of their product offering. Probe taking the air compressor market by storm Air compression is a necessary aspect of every industry, from mining to medical to hospitality. Until now, the South African market has had limited access to premium, cost competitive and high-quality air compression units and associated products. That is fast changing as Probe, South Africa’s largest leading importer and distributor of premium batteries and auto electrical parts, launches top international air compressor brands into the local market. Probe is in the progress of consolidating its product diversification strategy by developing strong robust business silos in the different segments: automotive, mining and industrial.
