The Intelligent Switch (Swimming Pool Pump Control) is designed to prevent swimming pool pumps from operating during Eskom designated peak times morning and evening. 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.

Aside from ensuring that swimming pool pumps are NOT on during ESKOM’s designated peak periods the ISP0901 also initiates a random delay of up to 1.5 hours on resumption of power after a power interruption, which alleviates surge related problems associated with the load shedding process. The device also has a consumer “comfort override” giving users a final say in load control.

The ISP0901 replaces existing timers.

Key Comparison ISP0801 against ESKOM Specification:

Prohibit pool pump (07h00-10h00 and 18h00-20h00)
Pull pump selection of 4hours and 6 hours filtration

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.

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. 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.
