See the user manual for more installation information.
How to connect a CT sensor
The CT simply clips to one of the cables that goes in our out of your electricity meter.
Open the side of the clip using the tab, wrap it around one of ‘live’ main cables to the meter and then snap it closed. The ‘live’ cables are usually marked with an ‘L’ and brown in colour. If connected to one of the other cables ‘neutral’ or ‘N’, the readings might be inaccurate or not report anything at all.
You should hear a click when the CT has been closed securely.
Connecting the sensor to the transmitter
Once you have attached the sensor to the meter (step 1), you need to connect the end of the lead to the transmitter.
Simply connect the connector to any of the holes on the bottom of the sensor.
Now remove the back of the transmitter by pressing the button on the back and sliding the cover upwards. Remove the pullout battery tab and then replace the transmitter cover.
Checking the display
Immediately after the transmitter battery tab has been removed it will start to transmit energy information to your energy display.
The display will flash the upper part of the screen until it receives a signal from the transmitter to show that it is in the progress of connecting. Once you see the dial on the display, everything is connected and working!
