The BSA Electronics Intellisplit™ - Intelligent Splitter Indoor version is a hardwired fully automatic 2-way switcher based on the original Dryer Buddy™ Plus AUTO. It allows you to share your dryer outlet with your EVSE without having to flip any switches. Basic operation is simple, the Dryer circuit is always live and the EVSE circuit is only live when there is enough amperage available to charge your EV. When the Dryer is off it is drawing little to no amps so the EVSE circuit is switched on allowing your EV to charge. If the Dryer is turned on at any time then the EVSE circuit is switched off, when the Dryer is done, power is restored to the EVSE circuit and if your EV needs charging it will resume charging after a 5 min delay (adjustable). Designed so other members of the house don't have to understand anything technical to use the Dryer when they need to do a load of laundry.
This unit is built in the same high quality polycarbonate case as the Dryer Buddy™ Plus AUTO and I use a beautiful indoor rated kWh meter to display important information. This keeps track of how much Energy you are using so you know how much $ in electricity you’ve used, by simple multiplying the value by your utilities rate (0.13/kWh here in Vegas) The meter is wired to read system Voltage and only meter the Current flowing through the EVSE outlet, unlike the original Dryer Buddy where the meter reads all Current flowing through the unit. In this configuration the Kilowatt Hours (kWh's) will only accumulate for Energy flowing through the EVSE outlet (on the right of the face) this value is stored between power outages and may be reset when you like. This allows you to see only the Energy your Electric vehicle has consumed.
The BSA Electronics Intellisplit™ - Intelligent Splitter Indoor version has an entry hole on the bottom for 3/4" conduit. You may increase the hole size with a stepper bit and/or add additional holes for your installation needs. This unit is for indoor use and is not Outdoor rated, it must be located inside a building protected from the elements.
