TED Spyder

TED Spyder Individual Circuit Monitoring Tool

Looks like a spider, doesn't it, with its 8 legs? TED Spyder is an add-on accessory, compatible only with TED Pro systems. The Spyder is a monitoring system that comes with eight (8) Current Transformers. Each leg can monitor circuits from 15A up to 200A. The CTs are designed to go around individual circuit conductors inside your breaker panel. The Spyder will log data for individual circuits/ appliances/ systems/ motors. Every TED Pro system MTU comes with a built-in Spyder connection.

The Spyder does not guess or 'sense' to come up with an appliance measurement ... it KNOWS because it is actually MEASURING the specific circuit!
You'll know WHEN it ran, HOW LONG it ran, and WHAT IT COST to run. The Spyder is great for SMALL loads or LARGE loads.

The Spyder monitors breaker-level detail ... on your HVAC units, computer equipment, lighting, individual offices, and thousands of other possibilities! This add-on is the perfect way to take your TED Pro to the next level of monitoring and saving!

Spyder Packages

Review the packages below to determine the Spyder package that best suits your need.

Spyder Pop – Most popular package - includes (2) split-core 200A CTs, (2) 60A and (4) 20A solid core CTs -- $169.95

Pros: Package is designed for majority of desired target loads in typical home. Split-core CTs will accommodate large circuits while 60/20A CTs will work for the smaller circuits;

Cons: None.

Spyder 20 – includes (8) 20A solid core CTs -- $149.95

Pros: Accurate to within 5%; minimum load to display: (40watts); less expensive than split core CT.

Cons: Solid core CT; would need to remove conductor from breaker to slip CT over; may not fit around larger conductors; limited to 20A circuits.

Spyder 20-S – includes (8) 20A split-core CTs -- $149.95

Pros: Accurate to within 5%; Minimum load to display: (40watts); Easy to clip over conductors..

Cons: limited to 20A circuits.

Spyder 60 – includes (8) 60A solid core CTs -- $149.95

Pros: Accurate to within 5%; less expensive than split-core CT; for any circuit rated 60A or less.

Cons: Solid core CT; would need to disconnect conductor from breaker to slip CT over; may not fit around larger conductors; not as sensitive as the 20A CTs (will display beginning at 140 watts).

Spyder Mix – includes (4) 60A and (4) 20A solid core CTs. -- $149.95

Pros: Will accommodate most target loads

Cons: May not fit around larger conductors; solid core CTs

Spyder 200-D – includes (8) 200A solid core CTs -- $199.95

Pros: Will accommodate any circuit up to 200A; Accurate to within 5%; Less expensive than split-core CT.

Cons: Larger in size; may not be suitable for “tight quarters;” Requires disconnect of conductor from breaker.

Spyder 200-S – includes (8) 200A split-core CTs -- $299.95

Pros: Accurate to within 5%; Split-core CT make for easy installation (clips around the conductor); May be used on any circuit up to 200A; Good for large loads.

Cons: Larger in size than a solid-core CT; more expensive than solid-core CTs.
