The Universal CT is Faster & Safer for Installers – Chris Hennig, Technical Product Manager at Neurio shares, “We designed the Universal CT to give Installers and Electricians a faster and safer way to get Neurio meters installed in every panel.” He continues, “Installers can now install our meters into more homes making it easy to educate customers on energy usage. This means that more people can use leading technology to optimize the flow of energy within their homes.”
Neurio’s Universal CT is certified to meet North American standards and is intended for use with the W1-HEM Neurio Home Energy Monitor. Certifications are pending for Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. The CT features measurement accuracy within 1% and is rated up to 200 Amps.
