Load control switches

The load control switch is an integral component of a demand response (DR) system. Installed at the consumer end of the distribution network, this product lets a utility manage residential loads during peak demand periods. Typical applications include air conditioners, water heaters and irrigation systems. The load control switch is one of Eaton's Demand Response solutions.

Balance load shed with customer comfort

While HVAC load management is essential for effective demand response, irrigation systems and water heaters can also significantly impact demand. Demand response equipment helps utilities shed load at times of high demand but can reduce customer comfort. Eaton's TrueCycle technology intelligently adjusts air conditioner operation based on the normal running patterns within the home. These smart TrueCycle technology algorithms learn and understand the customer's usage patterns. This reduces the impact on the consumer of load shedding actions so that a complete HVAC shutdown is avoided while still achieving the necessary demand reduction.

Equipment protection and grid reliability features

Eaton load control switches can shed load automatically if supply problems are detected. The devices also include cold-load pickup and short cycle protection features for consumer equipment protection. The load control switches can also help support the grid by responding to frequency and voltage problems.
