I called it as AutoStarter.
It help to reactivate your BH when something goes wrong which let to your whole electrical supply system to shut down.
While waiting to count the number of birds returning to the Kemaman BH the storm was brewing.
I knew it will come and those lightning strike were closer and closer to where I was.
Less than 5 minutes a bright light shot into the sky and it tripped the BH.
It was lucky that this Kemaman BH was installed with an autostarter.
Within about 2-3 seconds the electrical supply came back into operation.
The sound came back and the light on the BH walls started to glow.
This looks like something common which will happen if those lightning strike around your BH.
The moment they came closed even without hitting your BH the electrical system will shut down.
The worst thing to happen is when your BH is on a piece of land with lots of iron one beneath.
I watched it happened and I think the auto stater saved this BH from becoming a dead BH.
There are a number of auto starter in the market and the best is to go for a model that will take more than 3 times.
Hager model can go up to 5 times strikes.
The model shown above can only take 3 strikes. Yes you need to press the reset button to reactivate it back to zero.
If you do not reset it the system will stop its reactivation action.
There was another model called "Devil" which I saw at Ayer Putih BH being used.
It has a digital counter to indicate the number of times it has reactivated and it can reach up to 8 times.
This is much more reliable however the BH owner indicated that the model is no longer in circulation.
The cost to install a unit is about RM1000 to RM 12000.
The cost of the gadget is about RM800 -RM1200.
If you are staying very far from your BH you will soon realized that the money you spend on this gadget is worth every penny.
Every time it strike will cost you at least RM200 -RM500 to go over and reactivate your electrical system.
If it happened 10 times in 6 months you have saved RM 1200 - RM5000 of rushing to the site.
Remember a BH with no electricity is more or less equal to a dead BH.
So think carefully about what I wanted you to know and act wisely.
