Outstanding Feature—Intelligent Demand Control

Champion Whole House Automatic Transfer Switch with Intelligent Demand ControlThe Intelligent Demand Control Load Management feature found in Champion whole-house automatic transfer switches does more than supply power to your home’s essential circuits. Demand Control divides the home’s electrical system into prioritized zones and monitors the power requirements of each zone in real time.

If a load such as central air conditioning requires more power to start than is currently available, Demand Control manages the power in a low priority zone to free up enough power for the load requesting power to start. Once the load starts and its demand returns to normal, Demand Control returns power the lower priority circuits to operate alongside the load that needed extra power to start.

Intelligent Demand Control is a departure from load management systems found in other automatic transfer switches that only shed high voltage loads until the power to start them becomes available.
