Enopte’s AuziMax and EnMax controllers are the brains behind the Enopte Energy Management System. The Enopte controllers manage the energy and peak load demands and connects into established solar powered systems.
Patented Australian technology, the AuziMAX and EnMAX controllers provide world class energy optimisation. The controllers manage load levelling, telemetry, control the times equipment and appliances operate and can automate metering and billing.
The AuziMAX or EnMAX controller is installed on the power distribution board to collect data on mains, solar and sub-circuit supplies. It also connects to the hot water system, air-conditioning and pumping equipment and enables automatic control based on energy tariffs, demand, conditions and timers.
Where solar panels and solar battery storage are fitted, the Enopte Energy Management System will work out the optimal use of the available energy and the controller makes adjustments. Data is stored in the cloud and can be accessed at anytime from anywhere via web browser or the Enopte App.
If there is a spike in energy use, adjustments can be made to energy use way before the electricity bill arrives.
“The AuziMAX gave us minute by minute feedback, which is amazing to know that switching this off would have that effect…and also see the daily difference between what your solar is generating and what you’re using. This is a 16 year old house, so there’s old infrastructure and inefficient appliances, but with AuziMAX we know exactly how inefficient. What was great was to be away on business and see exactly what’s going on at the home front. Setting budgets is an important thing because it gives you incentives to be more energy efficient – you can even turn it into a game with the kids… It’s a positive effect you’re saving energy. We had the AuziMAX before solar was installed and were able to adjust energy use as a result of that.”

Schools notoriously use a lot of electricity and that’s been a big problem for us as a young growing school. We were ignorant of what we were using, however through AuziMAX we’ve found over 120KWh per day of potential savings. We’re now in the process of implementing accountabilities across our campus, and AuziMAX makes this easy through its automatic alert system. Operating the air-conditioning remotely through the relay systems also helps us reduce our peak load on the school. AuziMAX has certainly paid for itself in a short timeframe, and gives us the tools we need to keep our energy costs down – for the long term.
