Advanced Control for Large Loads
The L570 RF Load Control Switch is designed to control large loads as part of a demand response program using the Gridstream® RF network. The switch can be powered from 480 VAC supply voltage making it an ideal solution for controlling high energy demand applications, such as irrigation and municipal water pumps.
At peak usage a single pump can equal the load of 10 residential homes, making these types of loads attractive targets for peak management. The switch uses a remote measurement method, where the back-office system estimates the amount of available load and provides measurement and verification of the curtailed load from data sent by the switch.
The switch offers advanced load management features, such as a cold load pickup to prevent large current draw after recovering from an extended load management event. An integrated Gridstream RF radio provides robust, two-way communication utilizing the AMI network to ensure operations are carried out and confirmed on schedule. Acting as a node on the mesh network, the switch can route messages through meters and routers or directly to a data collector.
The L570 RF Load Control Switch gives utilities a robust and cost-effective option to implement demand response and realize a greater return on smart grid investments.
