The Powersaver Family from Sangamo

The Powersaver range provides the time control facility needed to help households lower their electric hot water costs by minimising energy consumption. Sangamo Powersaver products are a set of simple to use, multi application controllers which offer a wide choice of programming functionality & flexibility.

All of the products are designed to control the timing operations of applications such as water heating to ensure expensive energy is not wasted. Heating and hot water heating account for 43% of a home’s energy usage (mapawatt.com) – the Powersaver range can reduce energy and fuel costs for these domestic applications.

The Powersaver range has the ability to switch a resistive load of 16amps and varies from the simple Powersaver Boost switch which has a boost period of 30 minutes, 1 and 2 hours; to the fully programmable 7 day Powersaver 24/7 switch. There is also a new dual immersion controller available: the PS Dual.

The PS Dual has a choice of pre-set programs covering all of the low rate electricity tariffs, including Economy 7, Economy 10 & Eco 20:20 times. It has electromechanical programming selection with digital functionality and is a direct upgrade to the Sangamo Quartz 7 and Horstmann Economy 7 Quartz.

The PS Dual is a unique dual immersion controller due to its ease of installation and the fact that program times cannot be changed by the user: they are factory pre- set. It has a daily boost program option, up to a maximum of 2 hours meaning expensive electricity is not being wasted during peak times.

Due to its functionality the Powersaver is the control of choice for many Local Authorities, private builders and electrical contractors. In fact, many local authorities use the Powersaver to achieve their housing objectives set within the Social Housing Quality Standards and the Code for Sustainable Homes.

The Powersaver range is aesthetically pleasing and with single immersion element applications, the Powersaver product can fit into a single gang pattress box.

Powersaver Dual – The simplest dual immersion controller on the market The Powersaver Dual is an immersion controller that can be used with low-rate electricity tariffs.
