Hertz (Hz)

Hertz (Hz) is a unit of frequency that quantifies the cycles per second within an alternating current (AC) electrical signal.

In the realm of heating programmers, smart meters, devices, and appliances, hertz signifies the AC power supply’s frequency for which the programmer is tailored.

In the United Kingdom and most of Europe, the standard AC power supply frequency stands at 50Hz. Consequently, most heating programmers in these regions are engineered to function on this 50Hz power supply.

Safety first

It’s imperative to verify that your appliance or device aligns with the correct AC power supply frequency in your locale. Employing a heating programmer ill-suited for the frequency may result in operational issues, damage, and safety risks. Thus, we strongly recommend consulting a qualified electrician or HVAC technician to confirm compatibility with your region’s AC power supply frequency.
