Product Overview

Electronically controlled instant hot water up to 50°C with the DHCE 6/50 and DHCE 8/50.

The electronically controlled DHCE single phase instantaneous water heaters from STIEBEL ELTRON. These single phase instant hot water systems are ideal for low flow installations as the water heater has a switch on flow rate at only 1.5 litres per minute. With installation flexibility in mind, the DHCE hot water system is compact in design and ideal for those applications where space is tight.

Save water and energy

The DHCE compact water heater utilises electronic control that helps to save energy and water compared to older style hydraulically controlled instantaneous water heaters.

In addition, the compact design allows for close to the point of use installation to help save water by reducing the time it takes to deliver hot water to the outlet. The advantage of an instantaneous water heater is that no heat is lost, and energy wasted, to store hot water at temperature. Energy is only required to heat water when the hot water outlet is switched on.

Available in two electrical sizes:

  • DHCE 6/50 - 7.1kW, 30 Amps, single phase 240V
  • DHCE 8/50 - 9.5kW, 40 Amps, single phase 240V


  • 5 year full parts and labour domestic warranty*

1. Does the DHCE operate on a standard 10 Amp power point with three-pin plug?

No, all of the DHCE single phase instantaneous water heaters require a dedicated hard-wired circuit as they draw more than 10 Amps.

2. Where can I install the unit?

The DHCE instant hot water systems can be installed almost anywhere due to their compact design. The water heater does not require ventilation, relief drain or safe trays so it can be installed in a cupboard, in the roof space, below the sink, in a service cavity, in a Euro laundry just to name a few options.

3. Are the DHCE water heaters suitable to use with low flow tapware?

Yes, the DHCE has a switch on flow rate of only 1.5L/min making them ideal water heaters to use with low flow tapware.

4. Can I replace my single phase electric storage water heaters with a DHCE instantaneous electric water heater?

The DHCE instant hot water system will not deliver the same temperature hot water at the same flow rates as an electric storage water heater. Please contact our customer service team on 09 486 2221 to determine which instantaneous water heater is right for your application.

5. How far can the DHCE be installed away from the hot water outlets?

The DHCEs are designed to be installed as close as practical to the most used hot water outlet. Installing closer to the point of use can help to save water and energy by delivering hot water quickly to the outlet. The STIEBEL ELTRON single phase electric instantaneous water heaters are designed to service multiple outlets (note that this is will depend on the DHCE model selected) located several metres away from the system.
