Power sense when a hotwater diverter is used

just wondering how the powersense would work when you are running a hot water diverter in place, eg Paladin, would think some how you need to make one a priority

Hi Tim.

Priority is effectively managed by configuring the level of export that needs to be detected before starting to charge. We typically recommend that charging only begins once 1500W is being exported, because the slowest possible charge rate of a car is about 1400W.

A hot water diverter would usually activate when there is only a small amount of export, so you won’t see that 1500W level until after the cylinder is fully heated and diversion has stopped. Thus your car will be charged only after your hot water has reached whatever the cutoff temperature is.
