Delay controller Upgrade pak for Dryer Buddy Plus AUTO unit on order (waiting for build)
This is an Order Upgrade Pak for pending Dryer Buddy orders of any number, it adds a delay controller to a Dryer Buddy Plus AUTO. If this Upgrade Pak is ordered after 2 business days (M-F) from the original order you must contact BSA Electronics first to see if your original order qualifies as it may be to far along into the build process.
The Dryer Buddy Plus AUTO's switch over point is approximately 3.5amps. This Upgrade Pak adds a delay controller to prevent rapid switching of the EVSE outlet if the appliance load (your Dryer) is hovering right around the 3.5amp crossover point.
This controller comes already included in the RV Buddy Plus AUTO and Electric Range Buddy Plus AUTO units as they are more likely to need it.
What is a Dryer Buddy Plus AUTO? The new fully automatic Dryer Buddy is here!
The Dryer Buddy Plus AUTO is a fully automatic 2-way switcher based on the original Dryer Buddy Plus It allows you to share your dryer outlet with your EVSE without having to flip any switches. Basic operation is simple, the Dryer outlet is always live and the EVSE outlet 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 outlet is switched on allowing your EV to charge. If the Dryer is turned on at any time then the EVSE outlet is switched off, when the Dryer is done, power is restored to the EVSE outlet and if your EV needs charging it will resume charging. 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. Great for apartment dwellers, temp housing or an easy hookup at a friend’s/relatives house. Housed in a solid 6x6x4 PVC gray box.
Note: Some high efficiency Dryers such as the Bosch Series 800 max slowly ramp the speed of the motor and don't draw significant current (over 3.5 amps) while running which will cause the Dryer Buddy Plus AUTO to switch the EVSE outlet off or it may switch several times in a short period. The delay kit solves this issue.
