Wireless device to produce free hot water from solar PV energy
Power Reducer RC
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.
- Modulates power absorbed by the load, exploiting available PV energy without drawing power from the grid
- Easy to install: no plumbing skills required
- Max rated power of electric heater 3kW @ 230V
- Wireless connection
- Safe: compliance with CE and EMC regulations for residential and commercial use
- Configuration and control provided directly by “Elios4you” free App, available on on App Store and Google Play.
