Power Monitor, where does it belong?
Airhan
I got just got this panel mount power monitor in the mail: farm4.staticflickr.com/3846/14388116768_0a88d53c95.jpg

My plan wa to use it like a permanent Kill-a-watt to see how much power my heater in my popper is using, not that I'm about to install it though, I'm not sure where to place the apmere probe (the yellow/black ring in my picture, it measures the current passing though that ring (neat right?)).
My options are: on the hot wire before my ssr, on the hot wire after my ssr, on the neutral wire after the heater.
Any recommendations will be very appreciated ThumbsUp

Hi Aaron. Nice meter! I would like to know where I can get one, please. It seems if you only want to monitor heater power, then just put it on the neutral wire after the heater. I think it really wouldn't matter if you put it after the ssr before the heater, and I would expect either of these would give the same reading. Have you done away with the ssvr?

Thanks Ben!
I have ssrs and ssvrs, the ssrs interface with my TC4 and the ssvrs still let me do manual roasts when I'm in the mood.

I will try putting it after the heater, and I'll post my results.

Here's the link to where I bought it: http://www.ebay.c...1497.l2649
