Intelligent sensor links EV charging with other home electrical loads

Circontrol BeON vUK

Charger manufacturer Circontrol has launched eHome BeON, an intelligent sensor that can regulate a home EV charger to avoid overloading the circuit. According to the company, “uncontrolled and random consumption” of devices such as home appliances during EV charging could cause “a blackout that can only be fixed by turning off one of the appliances or by disconnecting your electric vehicle.”

BeON is an electrical device that is added to a home’s circuit breaker panel, and works with Circontrol eHome charging equipment. BeON sends a control signal to the eHome charger that allows it to regulate the EV’s energy consumption if necessary.
