Hardware trouble from the get-go
« on: April 26, 2014, 05:53:53 AM »
I have a 200 amp breaker, and the CTs that came with my ted pro home are nowhere near big enough to go around the incoming hot lines. I measured 0.720" with calipers as the OD of the lines, and the ID of the CTs appears to be roughly 0.65". What now? Did I just purchase a $300 paperweight?  >:(

I believe that there is an alternate current sensor setup that will wrap around conductors of arbitrary size. Give the TED support folks a call on Monday.

Got a reply from tech support on the ticket, they evidently have larger CTs that will work, will just cost an extra $13 and some time to ship stuff back and forth.
