I have a few questions before I buy an IOTaWatt.
Is a CT more accurate/sensitive when its rated capacity is closest to that of the circuit breaker, or will physical sizes affect sensitivity?
E.g. if I have a 20AMP breaker is the 20AMP CT best or is there a benefit of going the next size up.
I have not looked at my meter box yet. I suspect I have some 25AMP breakers with loads that will rarely exceed 10 amps and I am trying to decide between SCT-006-000 and SCT-013-000.
What happens if the load goes over the CTs rated capacity?
What happens if there is a power spike, does the IOTaWatt get harmed?
I ask as I use to have a WattsOn power monitor. It had three input channels and each time an electrician flipped the main breaker the input blew. After three electrician visits, there were no more working channels.
Finally is there a way of recording temperature from one of the IOTaWatt inputs?
It would be good to see the effect of outdoor temperature on power consumption.
Will installing the IOTaWatt in my steel meter box block the WiFI?
Will the temperature in the meter box cause problems in summer?
The meter box gets direct sunlight, the Wattson did not have any problems.
