Power Reducer RC

Wireless device to produce free hot water from solar PV energy

Product Description

How it works

The Power Reducer RC is a wireless device which, when combined with Elios4you Smart (single-phase and three-phase), provides the facility of producing hot water using photovoltaic energy generated on site, without ever drawing power from the grid.

Thanks to the wireless connection with the Elios4you Smart or Elios4you [Pro] Smart controller, the Power Reducer RC is easily installed near to the water heater or storage tank, without any need for additional wiring.

Main features
