eddi is a solar power diverter for use with grid-tied PV or wind turbine systems. Excess energy from the micro-generation system is used to heat water or rooms rather than exporting it to the grid.
A grid current sensor (supplied) simply clips around the incoming supply cable. This sensor is used to monitor excess power and eddi automatically adjusts the voltage to the heater load, thereby consuming the surplus power. A self-powered wireless sensor is available separately. An internal expansion interface provides a means to add an expansion module to enable various functions such as auto-switching from day-time and night-time supply, heat pump interfacing for legionella control and temperature sensing. eddi utilises myenergi's proprietary VariSineTM technology to ensure compliance with worldwide power grid standards, for a reliable solar power diverter.
