BlackWire Designs Debuts New SafePlug Smart Energy Electrical Load Controller
BlackWire Designs’ latest introduction is called SafePlug 1313 Electrical Load Controller. With the ability to monitor energy consumption and control electrical loads, the new 1313 also provides automated on-off control of pumps, water heaters, HVAC, lights, fans, heaters and many other loads based on schedule, remote commands or local button pushes — all controllable via the ZigBee Standard radio communication.
Designed for residential applications, the SafePlug 1313 offers control over anything 100 to 220 volts and up to 30 amps, therefore even appliances can be controller, including common household items such as an electric water heater or electric dryer. And through simple integration, the 1313 can easily be installed at the circuit breaker panel or inline at the load’s junction box.
The SafePlug Model 1313 Load Controller is available in different versions for one, two or three loads for 120V (single or 3 phase) or 277V (3 phase) and 30A current, enabling control of one or two-speed motors up to 3hp. For even larger loads, the SafePlug Load Controller can also drive external relays for more than 30 amps.
