Energate’s ZigBee Load Control Switch can disable major loads such as air conditioning compressors, pool pumps, and water heaters, and also communicates with the ZigBee-enabled smart meters being deployed by leading utilities to more effectively manage energy consumption and costs, enabling new demand-side programs.
The LC301RZ is a core component of Energate’s home energy management solution that lets consumers and utilities conveniently manage energy use and reduce peak demand. It supports both one-way FM RDS broadcast and two-way ZigBee Smart Energy Profile certified communications to ensure that utilities and consumers benefit from seamless communications with other ZigBee enabled components within the Smart Grid.
With its robust design, the LC301RZ provides reliable utility control of major wired household loads, including air conditioning compressors, heat pumps, baseboard heaters, water heaters, and pool pumps. As well, it supports concurrent direct load control and distributed load control capability as well as “on the fly” time out / cycle time modifications.
