Title: Electrical help. Energy meter
Post by: jotec on December 31, 2012, 09:11:00 AM
H,
I have 2 identical energy monitors. I want them both on the same supply (to the cabin so they can see their usage and I can monitor).
The available tail is short and while I can get both cufs on it they are tight against each other and this affects the readings. I have tried using both receivers on the same chanel but it doesn't work, should it?
Question.
Can I splice into one of the cufs so it splits and feeds both senders?

Thanks
Dick

Put one sensor on the in cable & one on the out.

Or one on the live & one one the neutral.

Hi Dick
You should be able to sync 2 meters to the one transmitter or you can with ones from the current cost stable.

It takes a bit of trial and error but basically you have to get them both locked on at the same time.

give it a try,

 good luck and a happy New Year.

Thanks for the replies. Unfortunately no room to get on +and - and no luck getting both onto the same transmitter, even with just the one switched on it would not recognise the others transmitter.
I can however confirm that it seems to work fine by splicing two transmitters, on different channels, onto 1 cuf. Will take a week to know how accurate they are.
