    In case of black out the Ecat sguts down and must be reactivated when the energy comes back.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    In your answers you regularly repeat that every ECat-SKlep always needs mains power to work.
    However, the demo video from December last year shows that the ECat is powered via an industrial DC power supply.
    It therefore seems obvious to me that I could connect such an industrial DC power supply, or even better: a laboratory power supply, to a cheap UPS with a modified sine wave as output when the mains power is disconnected.
    The Ecat will not experience any difference because the intermediate power supply continues to work.
    In this way, the ECAT only works on a battery.
    Is this reasoning correct?
    Kind regards,
    Koen

  • Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Mains power as required by the E-Cat SKLep brings up the question as to whether the E-Cat SKlep will automatically shut itself off in the event of a mains power interruption/failure?

    PG&E power in my part of California often goes down for anywhere from a couple of minutes interruption to several hours every couple of months.

    Power spikes have damaged my desktop computer; so I have a 500W UPS system to protect my computer. Would an UPS system help protect the E-Cat SKLep control unit?

    Wishing you continued progress on your R&D work.

    Best Regards,

    Daniel G. Zavela

    Do you have tested the SKLep on a boat or ship? (floating in a lake, sea or river of course)

    Red Monkey:
    Good question.
    The former text has been corrected. To be precise: you can charge batteries, also the batteries of automotive, but it is necessary that the Ecat ia also connected to a grid. Example: you can recharge a battery at your home while the Ecat ia connected at the input to the grid and at the output to the battery that you want to charge.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea ,

    You say in https://ecat.com/ecat-sklep: “With a power consumption of only 1W, which can be supplied by a standard rechargeable battery, the Ecat SKLep can be used in any mobile application.”

    And on the blog you say that this must be connected to the 220V network ???

    What is true ?

    Best Regards
    Red

  • Maico

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    simplifying the concept, is it possible to say that SKLep / Mini SKLep standard (1) are DC input (12V) DC output (12V)?

    and that the other 3 versions:

    2) AC (110 / 220V) / DC (12V)
    3) AC (110 / 220V) / AC (110 / 220V)
    4) DC (12V) / AC (110 / 220V)

    are obtained by adding an AC (110 / 220V) / DC (12V) converter in input and / or an DC (12V) / AC (110 / 220V) converter in output?

    Regards Maico

    Buongiorno,
    ho fatto il preordine, ma non mi è arrivata una email di conferma. Devo rifare il preordine? Grazie.
    I pre-ordered an Ecat SKLep, but didn’t receive the receipt. Have I to repeat the pre-order ?

  • Andreas

    Dear dr. Rossi,

    1 For my unserstanding: Also the 100 W SKlep with 12 V DC input and 12 V DC output needs the grid?

    2 Is it possible to substitude the grid with an hybrid inverter like this one: https://www.fronius.com/en/solar-energy/installers-partners/technical-data/all-products/inverters/fronius-symo-gen24-plus/fronius-symo-gen24-10-0-plus

    Good point.
    Yes, and it is irrelevant. We measured 0.00 A, maybe after the second decimal there is something. We are vetting this issue.

    Steven Nicholes Karels:
    Directly powering the grid is a complex operation that IS POSSIBLE, IT IS NORMALLY MADE BY SOLAR PANELS. OBVIOUSLY MUST BE MADE BY CERTIFIED PROFESSIONALS, THAT CERTYFY THE INSTALLATION RESPECTING ALL THE REQUIREMENTS; to make this kind of installation is also necessary to obtain specific authorizations from the competent office and is necessary a contract with the provider of the grid. I have a strong experience in the matter, since for many years I used to power the grid in Italy with gensets patented by me fueled with by-products derived from wastes.
    Warm regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    If certified, the certified product is safe to use. It will not catch on fire, etc. Likewise, a home gasoline electrical generator is safe as it is certified. But if you run a generator and power the Grid, that application is unsafe. Similarly, if you tell JONP users that the SKLep can directly power the Grid, you are suggesting unsafe practices. The practice or application is unsafe, not the underlying electrical component. Directly powering the Grid can injure or kill a workman when the Grid is down and the workman believes the circuit is dead. Use a transfer switch or other mechanism to ensure safe operation.

  • Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    The ECat SKL is connected to the grid and is earthed. The consumption from the grid is zero or negligible. But some might think that in reality the consumption exists between the earth connection and one of the two phases of the grid and that this real consumption is significant but it is not measured nor indicated.
    My ask:
    have you measured if there is electrical current flowing in the wire of earth connection?
    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, many of us believe implicity in your technology and have no doubt it will come to fruition as a world leader in the near future. At an uneducated guess, is the need for the Ecat EP to be grid connected more probably due to the requirements of the AI control unit, rather than the E Cat itself?.

  • Jan Šrajer

    Mr. Rossi
    If the mains voltage fluctuates from 220V to 240V, will it still be possible to operate the E-catSKLep
    All the best J.Š.

  • Ron Stringer

    Dr. Rossi,
    It just occurred to me that an entire new industry will spring up devoted to creating new devices to take advanced of your SKLep units! Obviously someone will create something with a few USB receptacles for charging phones and computers, and other widgets. There will be a plethoras of needs that will not even be imagined until the SKLep is out in the wild. I hope you will be able to sell units without cases, for incorporation inside other devices.
    i hope people don’t get too disappointed that the first generation of SKLep are bound to the grid, I think some of us have let our dreams get ahead of us. The SKLep is a miracle already, and its further development will provide more miracles, I am sure.

    Dear Andrea,

    I have in preorder 31 SKLep 12V in and 12V DC out. I will use them for a solar inverter connected to the grid.
    When you require connection to the grid is it for the controller supply?
    I mean the controller must be grid connected even if it is 12V.

    Besides are there any chance of an update in the future, so the connection to the grid is unnecessary?

    Best regards,

    Mats Heijkenskjold

  • Stephen

    Dear Andrea Rossi

    I’m not sure if this has been asked before.

    Is there a limit to the number of power switching (ON and OFF) for the SKLEP and new mini SKLEP?

    Sometimes components such as Flash memory have a limited number of read write cycles, other electronic components a limited number of power cycles and batteries a limit number of charging cycles.

    I suppose anyway if there is it is well above 10000 which should be enough for about 10 cycles a day over 3 years

    Thanks and Best Regards

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    If you provide an inverter with the SKLep (100W or 10W), will the inverter be grid-safe? Will it shut off automatically and instantly if grid power is lost? If it is not grid-safe, your product might kill or injure someone – specifically a grid lineman who wrongly believes the grid power is off.

    Dear Andrea Rossi, I ordered 2 100 watt 12 volt ecatskleps in December now I have seen the new 10 watt miniecatsklep, I am wondering if I can use the miniecatlep as a power supplier for 100 watt ecatskleps cordially Claudio R.

    Dear Andrea,
    Is your dependence on a connection to the mains required because it is needed if the device begins to become unstable and the unit needs a charge to stabilize it?
    Unsteady regards.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Second part of my questions…

    Here are some features of the Mini SKLep:
    “The Minisklep needs to be plugged into a grid connection to operate. The SKLep can produce either AC or DC. Customers will need to specify whether they want DC or AC input, and also DC or AC output.”

    if I order a Mini SKLep input AC / AC output, an inverter is included in the price (for the output)

    1) For the input AC (220V) the MiniSKLep will it arrive just ready for the grid?

    2) Nothing else will I add to the Mini SKLep?

    Regards Maico
