Load-Control Switches Enable Successful Demand Response

By Mat Dirjish

Landis+Gyr’s latest line of multi-relay load control switches manage multiple loads to boost demand response success. The four-relay and two-relay load control switches allow the control of multiple appliances from a single installation to support more effective utility demand response and variable rate programs.

The quantity of controllable loads in homes is increasing. As a result, management of peak demand requires multi-relay switches that can access multiple loads.

Landis+Gyr’s switches can interface to air conditioning, water heating, pool pumps, electric heating, etc., and report the amount of load available for control at each appliance. Additionally, the components offer verification of operation, under-voltage, and under-frequency protection, and the ability to update firmware over the AMI network.
