The AC/DC Enabler is a patented, UL-certified and globally compatible 30x15x8mm solid-state digital power management and control system, which, combined with the recently patented Amber AC Switch, represents the first major breakthrough in electricity control and delivery in more than 70 years, according to the manufacturer.
“Solid-state control of electricity changes the rules of the game for everything - security and control systems, circuit breakers, lighting fixtures, appliances, dimmer switches - the list goes on forever. Through commercial implementations of our technologies within the existing electrical infrastructure of any building, any home or business can add IoT functionality overnight by replacing existing outlets and switches with Amber-enabled products. Manufacturers can now engineer and market powered products with far greater capabilities right out of the box”, said President and CEO Thar Casey.
These foundational technologies represent a breakthrough in software management of electricity through solid-state architecture, and Amber has already integrated them into fully demonstrable solid-state products, such as a smart programmable retrofit circuit breaker. In addition, the company has demonstrable smart dimmer switches and smart outlets, both of which showcase more than 10 features within a single gang box footprint. Amber’s technologies are now available for integration into products that fit in existing gang boxes, as well as an expansive range of other electrical products and appliances.
