Resources: Consert Tru Load Device Controller
Utilizing standards-based hardware and hardware interfaces to ensure universal connectivity, the Consert® Tru Load Device Controller measures metrology data of devices of up to 50 amps of service for HVACs and 30 amps of service for electric water heaters and pool pumps in compliance with ANSI C12.1 accuracy requirements. This real-time empirical data collection is aggregated and delivered to the Consert Tru Smart Energy Gateway via the onboard ZigBee® wireless radio communications. Offering a new level of intelligence and control at the device level, the Consert Load Device Controller when paired with the Smart Energy Gateway empowers homeowners and small businesses to participate in cost saving activities overseen by their utilities that help both parties benefit economically and environmentally.

Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
1. This device may not cause harmful interference, and
2. This device must accept any interference received,
including interference that may cause undesired operation.
- Any changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
- Exposure to Radio Frequency Radiation: To comply with FCC RF exposure compliance requirements, a separation distance of at least 20 cm must be maintained between the antenna of this device and all persons. This device must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
- Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
- Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
- Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
- Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
