Laguna Niguel, CA (PressExposure) October 04, 2007 -- WHAT IS THE EZSWITCH30?
EZSWITCH is part of a collection of Simplehomenet devices driven by consumer requests and shows Simplehomenet's commitment to deliver on the vision of the fully integrated home.
The EZSWITCH is a high current (30Amps) relay module that responds to INSTEON and X10 On/Off commands sent through the power line. The module contains dual relays with available normally-open or normally-closed contacts. Thus, it is possible to switch both legs of a 220VAC 2-phase circuit, and control the load to be activated with either ON or OFF commands. Activating with OFF commands might be desirable in cases where a failure in the switch would leave the load energized. EZSWITCH30 has a built-in power line interface and its programming control is done through the power line.
" The EZSWITCH30 has many energy saving applications. One very exciting possibility is for turning off heavy duty appliances, such as water heaters during peak demand hours"
