The EM420 is by excellence the energy manager for precise and continuous monitoring of electrical energy flows in the residential, industrial and commercial areas.

This device, designed in Germany by TQ, is the perfect basis for monitoring and analyzing your electrical networks.

The EM420 is the basis of the dynamic load management for the KEBA X series charging stations. By monitoring the total consumption of your electric circuit, thanks to the EM420, the KEBA charging stations adapt their charging power in real time, according to your electric circuit’s capacity and load.

Thanks to this feature, the electric circuit is not overloaded and so the circuit breakers don’t risk to disrupt.
