The custom made aluminium enclosure effectively dissipates the low level heat generated during operation, making the use of cooling fans unnecessary. The result: silent running, increased reliability and system efficiency  

The ERS 6 Blue Edition is sealed against the ingress of dust and moisture to protect the internal electronics, to IP54. The result: no dust ingress to overheat internal components and no moisture ingress to corrode the electronics. This increases reliability which leads to longer component life.  

An inbuilt backlit LCD display is housed on the front of the ERS 6 Blue Edition to show live information about system status. The display features; auto time out - 5 minutes; live exported power; live imported power; live output power; operation status and total kWh savings.

The ERS 6 Blue Edition incorporates a fully independent manual isolation and by-pass switch. Simply flick the switch to turn off the unit or by-pass the recovery function, supplying mains power directly to electrical load. This feature can be used if the electrical device is required to be turned on manually or ERS is not required for a period of time. It can also be used for regulatory testing of the electrical load circuit without risking damage to the device.  

The ERS 6 Blue Edition features high quality German engineered connectors ensuring a high quality secure connection. This results in a quick and efficient, trouble free, installation.

The manual boost button, situated on the front of the ERS 6 Blue Edition enables the user to override the ERS mode for a timed period. This will allow a boost of hot water or heating, if required. The timed period is adjustable through the menu from 10 - 120 minutes. The unit will display 'Boost' and count down the timed period. After this period ERS will continue normal operation.

The ERS 6 Blue Edition incorporates smart boost which intelligently applied the boost function when generation if low for a period of time. Lack of export power will automatically trigger the boost function for the set period. The function can be turned on or off in the settings menu and is particularly useful in all electric single tariff households.

EXTERNAL TIMER (Aux Connection)
The ERS 6 Blue Edition houses an auxiliary connection which can be used with a standard external timer. The timer will override the ERS function during the timed period. The function can be turned on or off in the settings menu. This feature is particularly useful in all electric households with a night rate electricity tariff or in installations containing heat pumps.

SMART RELAY (Aux Connection) - Second Load and Export Limiter
The ERS 6 Blue Edition contains an internal smart relay which can control external devices. It can firstly enable a secondary device to be switched or controlled via a standard external contactor, allowing power to be shared intelligently between two devices when additional export power is available. This can be tailored for almost any application. Secondly it can control the disconnection of inverters and other devices based on export levels. Once a set export level is selected it will allow the disconnection of the solar inverter when this export level is reached. Due to the ultra-fast reaction time of F-POINT technology ERS can disconnect the inverter in just 400ms which aids regulatory compliance with the local DNO.

Each ERS 6 Blue Edition has a 3 year warranty as standard, backed by PowerFlow, whose founders have over a decade of industry experience in designing and developing renewable technologies for national manufacturers and government agencies. This can be extended to 5 years for free by registering your product on the registration page.
