How does the Orison system prevent wiring overload and fires without involving electricians?

  June 4, 2020   |   Category: Electrical Safety

Orison’s products will be properly certified and subjected to the required compliance testing and will not allow excessive current in wiring.  Safety is at the core of the Orison system design and we have implemented several layers of protection to ensure it is achieved. Orison has several ways of sensing grid connection and the load on a circuit. We do this via the receptacle an Orison storage unit is plugged into and our self-installable Orison Energy Monitor. We also can connect to a smart meter for increased input that further increases efficiency. In a grid outage, Orison storage can remain in idle mode until you choose to isolate the circuit and command Orison the system to power the circuit. 

Apart from our ability to sense outages and respond as commanded, the Orison system has several other features designed to ensure safety. These include a smart plug with GFCI / RFD that does not allow discharge when not inserted into a receptacle. Orison storage is also designed with an intelligent discharge and sense cycle and its output is limited to the capacity of the circuit. Rather than directly powering a circuit, the Orison Panel can also isolate an individual appliance by having it directly plugged into it via the UPS port
