For an easier everyday life – and optimised charging
Charge Amps Amp Guard is the perfect addition to our EV chargers. It is mounted in the electrical cabinet, easily connected to the EV charger via Charge Amps Cloud and together they enable load balancing – meaning that the household’s or property’s electrical consumption is dynamically adjusted so several power consuming appliances can be running at the same time without any fuses blowing.
This is how Charge Amps Amp Guard works
In most cases, the electricity consumption is at its highest during the day or the evening. Charging an EV requires a lot of power during a long period of time – and when the charging is combined with e.g., food cooking on the stove, clothes being washed in the washing machine and the ventilation working at full capacity, there is a risk that the electrical system will be overloaded, and fuses will blow.
Charge Amps Amp Guard, together with Charge Amps Cloud, enables dynamic load balancing, which measures and controls the total loading in the household. In first place, all available electricity is allocated to the household appliances and thereafter the remaining electricity goes to the EV, which ensures that electrical system is not getting overloaded. And then, when the household uses less energy, all available electricity will go to the EV. This means that the car will be charged faster than without a load balancer.
Charge Amps Amp Guard makes EV charging much smoother, smarter and better – without the user having to think about, or do, anything.
For houseowners, workplaces and public areas
Charge Amps Amp Guard is the perfect choice for private residences or housing cooperatives as well as for public places or companies. For house owners, it ensures that the EV can be charged while other important power consuming appliances are running at the same time. For housing cooperatives, Charge Amps Amp Guard enables several EVs to be charged at the same time as the residents use other power consuming appliances. In public areas, Charge Amps Amp Guard enables EVs to be charged at the same time as the electrical capacity is shared with other surrounding buildings, street lightning and other things that require large electrical capacity. For companies, several EVs can be charged at the same time as the employees use all the necessary electronical equipment.
No matter where Charge Amps Amp Guard is placed, the dynamic load balancing will ensure that no fuses blow and that the cars receive the most optimised charging possible.
