Added Digital Volts/Current Meter (110vac)

Wanted to be able to check our shore power line and load so we installed a panel meter. Meter comes with a current transformer and was easy to install. Mounted it to the distribution panel and added a switch to enable it.
Bought it at Amazon for $17.

Very nice Dennis!

Really clean install. Great idea with the switch, that meter seems really bright (not a bad thing) and now you have control over it.

Well done sir!

Bob

Nice for 30 amp.
Nice clean install.


50 amp units would need to have 2 of them .
Or a proggresive industries ems.

I have one similar I'll be selling but also show kilowatts used and total time used.

You did a really nice Job. For those of us less crafty there is always the good old Kill-a-Watt meter like this. Portable and about any 120 plug will read through put data. I think I got mine at Harbor Freight for $27 less 20% of course. Kill A Watt Meter - Electricity Usage Monitor | P3
