I’ve read the Iotawatt’s documentation twice. Still, the below question bothers me. Forgive me for ignorance.
Instead of installing IotaWatt in our circuit/mainboard, can we use an extension cord of 230v to plug the Reference transformer and Power USB for testing/demo purposes?
If yes, can I clip a single CT on an appliance’s(washing machine) insulated power cord rather than on a circuit? Will the CT work?
If no, why no?
