Title: Separate Reading for Each Current Clamp?
Post by: DrDeke on September 10, 2018, 06:10:46 PM
I have a TED 5000 sitting in storage since I moved a while back, and I have an application where I need to see a separate reading from each of the two current clamps. I can't remember whether the TED 5000 shows this data anywhere and was wondering if any of you know so I can save the trouble of installing it in case it can't.

Thanks!

Unfortunately the 2 CT's show a combined total so the only way to do it with a TED5000 is to use both CT's on the same lead or adjust the multiplier and only use one CT but would still only allow for one monitoring point at a time.

The newer model TED Pro Home does offer the optional Spyder component that does allow you to break down and monitor on a per circuit bases so that may be more of what your looking for. http://www.theenergydetective.com/spyder

There is also a discounted upgrade options for TED5000 customers:

Is this discounted upgrade option going to be available indefinitely? I also want a 'per circuit' monitoring which TED 5000 doesn't have by the looks of it. I just won't be able to switch until early next year so I'm wondering if the discount will still be there.
