The VarianSENSE technology introduces a nuanced and highly efficient approach to managing and safeguarding the electrical infrastructure within townhome complexes. Given the unique structure of townhomes, which combines individual ownership with shared communal facilities, there's a critical need to protect both the electrical subpanels within each townhome and the primary service feed that powers the entire site. This dual-layer protection ensures that the energy demands of electric vehicle charging do not compromise the integrity of the electrical system at either the individual or community level.


Two-Tier Protection with VarianSENSE

VarianSENSE addresses this challenge by implementing a two-tier protection system:


Individual Townhome Subpanel Protection: At the first tier, VarianSENSE monitors and manages the electricity consumption at the subpanel level within each townhome. This ensures that the energy usage, especially from high-demand applications like EV charging, remains within the safe operational capacity of the subpanel. By doing so, it prevents overloading and potential damage to the individual home's electrical system.


Main Service Feed Protection: At the second tier, VarianSENSE extends its monitoring and management capabilities to the site's main electrical service. This broader level of protection is crucial for maintaining the overall integrity of the electrical infrastructure across the townhome complex. By managing the cumulative energy demand, VarianSENSE ensures that the main service feed is not overwhelmed by simultaneous charging activities, thus safeguarding the entire community's electrical system.


Dynamic-Load Balancing

The integration of VarianSENSE with VarianPRO creates a dynamic and intelligent EV charging solution. VarianPRO, known for its efficient power allocation and EV charging management capabilities, works in concert with VarianSENSE to ensure a seamless and optimized charging experience. This synergy allows for the following:


Smart Energy Allocation: VarianPRO and VarianSENSE communicate dynamically to allocate power intelligently among EV chargers, prioritizing charging based on real-time power availability and demand. This ensures that EV charging does not compromise the electrical system's stability at either the individual or communal level.

Scalable Charging Infrastructure: Together, VarianSENSE and VarianPRO enable the installation of multiple EV chargers across the townhome complex without necessitating a costly upgrade to the site's electrical infrastructure. This innovative approach ensures that every resident has access to an EV charger, promoting the adoption of electric vehicles and supporting sustainable transportation initiatives.

Benefits for Townhome Complexes

The combination of VarianSENSE and VarianPRO offers significant benefits for townhome complexes, including:


Enhanced Electrical Safety: By monitoring and managing electrical demand at both the subpanel and main service levels, this solution significantly reduces the risk of overloads and electrical hazards.

Cost-Effective EV Charging Expansion: It allows for the expansion of EV charging capabilities without the need for expensive infrastructure upgrades, making it a cost-effective solution for communities.

Sustainability and Convenience: Ensuring a charger for every resident not only supports environmental sustainability but also enhances convenience and satisfaction among residents, contributing to a modern, eco-friendly living environment.
