The Intelligent Switch (Geyser Control) is designed to prevent geysers from operating during parts of Eskom designated peak times morning and evening.  As with the Intelligent Switch (Swimming Pool Pump Control), the use of the ISG0801 will result in sizable savings for consumers, and much more efficient use of power from the national grid.

The ISG0801 not only monitors movement in the premises and automatically adjusts the geyser cycle according to the tenants lifestyle, but also gives the consumer total peace of mind by turning the geyser off after 18 hours of inactivity (indicating no presence), and turning it back on again (regardless of peak period zone) when occupation is detected after any prolonged inactivity phase (above).

The ISG0801 provides hands-off load shifting and an excellent reduction of energy consumption that is attractive to both energy providers and consumers, resulting in significant monthly energy account savings.

The ISG0801 works on all types of geysers and is solar ready, integrating seamlessly with solar geysers, heat pumps and alternative energy devices.

The ISG0801 also boasts integrated ‘soft start-up’ intelligence which prevents all geysers from restarting simultaneously immediately after resumption of power following a power cut-off (load-shedding). This random sequenced ‘soft start’ greatly reduces the current surges experienced when bringing regions back on to the national grid.

With proposed dual-tariff billing aimed at allowing municipalities to bill at higher rates during these critical peak periods, the use of the ISP0901 by consumers will result in sizable savings for consumers, and much more efficient use of power from the national grid. The Intelligent Switch (Swimming Pool Pump Control) is designed to prevent swimming pool pumps from operating during Eskom designated peak times morning and evening.


Lighting | Kgwanyape Energy Solutions

While motion sensing is not a new innovation and has been in the market for many years, the uniqueness in the KES approach is that the KES solution is completely Plug and Play in its approach and a typical office installation takes only 10 – 15 minutes. In a typical office scenario in commercial buildings and industry, where there are recessed fluorescent light fittings, these light fittings plug in directly into a 5A socket.

Following years of investment in R&D, a range of versatile energy saving and load shifting solutions have been developed that centre around KES’ “Intelligent Switch Module”, a smart switching device, the adoption of which will more than satisfy the South African government’s overall target of a 10% reduction in energy consumption.
