PC TrickleSwitch Energy Saver

If you are using or plan to purchase the PC TrickleSaver you may want to consider the PC TrickleSwitch as an Accessory. The TrickleSaver turns PC USB peripheral devices Off when you turn your PC Off and On when you turn your PC On. The TrickleSwitch takes energy savings a step further. It attaches to the TrickleSaver, and allows you to turn all of your PC USB peripheral devices On and Off manually at anytime while your PC is On – simply press the button on top of the TrickleSwitch. By allowing you to manually switch PC USB peripheral devices On/Off and to supply power to them only when required, you can significantly reduce the amount of ‘vampire power’ consumed when your PC is On. This is especially helpful for those that put their PC in standby mode, in which case the USB is still active and wouldn’t turn off the switched outlet. The TrickleSwitch connects directly to a PC via a standard USB connector and a PC TrickleSaver plugs into a USB connector on the product. Read more

Track and Reduce Energy Consumption

The Blue Line PowerCost Monitor and Energy Meter II informs you in real time of exactly how much electricity your household is consuming. A wireless sensor clamps to your energy meter and transmits information to a portable, wireless receiver that displays your energy usage information on a large LCD screen. Various electricity rates can be programmed for extreme accuracy, including single (flat) rates, tiered rates, and time-based rates. The sensor measures the speed of the wheel and the display unit converts that information into current and cumulative dollars and cents and kilowatt hours. By monitoring your energy costs you can decide when to cut back on your energy use and save money; validated 3rd party research puts actual savings at 6% to 18%. The PowerCost Monitor uses smart technology that calculates your home’s electricity use and displays that information in a way that we can all understand, in dollars and cents.

  • Monitor
    • Appliance Tab: Designed to allow the user to easily interpret the cost of a specific energy user/appliance in the home or the impact of an action
    • Predictive feature: A quick press on the “total/est” toggle will provide the user, based on actual energy consumption from the last reset, with an estimate of the 30 Day energy consumption totals in $’s or kW’s
    • Sleep function: Addresses the risk of premature battery rundown. Should the monitor and the sensor lose connectivity, the monitor will go into sleep mode (pressing any button on the monitor will bring the monitor back to ready mode).
    • Expanded kH Factor Capability: The unit can now accommodate kH factors of 0.1 to 99 and thus insure compatibility with high load service homes in North America today. This unit will work with 14.4 type meters.
    • Packaging: Package size and material has been reduced by 33%, a small step forward to reduce the overall footprint and contribute to a more sustainable planet.
  • Sensor:
    • To prevent the accumulation of standing water, the seal has been changed to a softer rubber compound to ensure a more positive fit and seal between the harness and the sensor unit main body. A modification has been of the body of plastic, and silicone grease has been around the battery lid seal in final phase of manufacturing.
