1. Automatic Voltage Regulator. A device that monitors the incoming voltage on an electrical line (typically directly off the mains) providing an electrical output with any spikes removed and compensated for under voltage, over voltage and browouts in the original supply. An AVR will remove voltage fluctuations that might otherwise destroy or reduce the life of electronic components.

An AVR is often (but not always) part of a UPS.
