The DPM20-8 is part of the PowerOptimal PowerGuard Domestic Range and is a more advanced home demand management system compared to the DPM20-2. It can reduce peak demand in the home environment by more than 50%, depending on the types of loads managed. It can manage 8 loads (such as geysers, air conditioners, swimming pool pumps and underfloor heating) and also has a backup / standby power management capability. The following are example applications:
+You pay time of use charges and would like to reduce your power use during peak periods.
+You have a backup generator that supplies less power than your grid connection and you would like to connect more electrical loads to the generator.
+You are experiencing regular power trips due to power demand exceeding supply.
+You are expanding your house and need more power, but the municipality cannot provide more power, or it will be too expensive.
+You are building a new home, and the municipality has informed you that less power is available than what is required (e.g. 60A instead of 80A).
