TED 5000 series to Home series
« on: March 15, 2017, 09:07:45 PM »
Is there a cost effective way of moving from the 5000 series to Pro Home series?  Anything reusable?

AFAIK, only the small display unit can be reused (and this requires the purchase and installation of the appropriate USNAP transmitter module in the ECC). None of the other components of the 5000 series is upward compatible.

Well, since the small display no longer even charges (goes dead immediately off of the charger) then that is a no go as well.

Does this mean that even the Measuring Transmitting Units and Current Transformers cannot be used?

Yes. (again, AFAIK) - the MTUs are certainly not reusable, since one of the genuine improvements in the Pro series is much better communication between the MTUs and the ECC (Gateway in the 5000 series).
