DCC-9, manufactured by Thermolec, is an EV Energy Management System specifically designed to allow the connection of a charger to the main feeder of the panel without affecting the load calculation.
Ideal for the installation of chargers in multi-residential buildings, such as apartments or condominiums.
Exterior installations will require DCC-9-3R.
How it works:
DCC-9 allows the connection of any EV charger to a fully loaded panel by managing the energy available at any given time.
- DCC does a real-time reading of the total power consumption of a home or condo electrical panel;
- It detects when the total power consumption of the main circuit breaker exceeds 80% and temporarily de-energizes the charger.
- When DCC detects that the total power consumption of the electrical panel is less than 80% for more than 15 minutes it automatically re-energizes the charger.
DCC will only allow power to be delivered to the EV charger if the total demand of the panel is below its full capacity. Gen-3 of the DCC-9 has the ability to receive and transmit load shedding instructions from an external energy management system via a dry contact input and output.
