No, devices with electronics cannot be powered. The output of the UVE SMART is DC (Direct Current) instead of the standard 230V AC (Alternating Current) 50Hz from the mains. Only resistive loads (heaters) can be connected.
Connecting a resistive load directly to the panels is inefficient and dangerous. UVE aSMART uses MPPT (maximum power point tracking) technology that changes the output resistance to extract maximum power from the panels by constantly monitoring for changes in solar insolation. A direct connected heater has a constant resistance which, even if matched with the installed panels, would only be optimal for certain conditions of the day and year.
In addition, such an installation is dangerous because it can overheat. The boilers safety system (thermostat) is made to work with alternating current (AC) and cannot interrupt the direct current (DC) generated by the solar panels.
UVE SMART is fully compatible with AC circuit breakers using the additional external protection of boiler safety systems.
Yes. UVE SMART is fully compatible with conventional mechanical thermostats. The heater should not have any additional electronics or motor.
Yes. UVE SMART can operate autonomously only on power from the photovoltaic panels, making it suitable for remote or mobile applications.
UVE SMART can work with most electric or combination water heaters as long as they do not have additional control electronics. Most water heaters have heaters with a power of 2 to 3 kW and are connected directly to the power input without disassembling or changing anything from the electrical connection on the water heater. It is mandatory that the heater power is higher than the installed solar power in order to absorb all the power from the sun.
Yes, the UVE SMART has a graphical display from which it can be fully set up and controlled, as well as see statistics on the energy generated up to 10 years ago. The application enables remote monitoring and management of the system, as well as a more convenient visualization of the history of the device.
No. UVE SMART does not support charging batteries or other electrical devices.
No. Double-check the connection of the cables from the photovoltaic panels to the UVE SMART, because the wrong polarity will cause damage to the unit, which is not covered by the warranty.
