Which TED do I need?
STEP 1: Commercial or residential?For residential, or single phase small business facilities.
- TED Pro Home is the 5th generation of TED and was released in late 2014 and allows users to monitor overall energy usage, as well as individual circuits; extremely robust data-transmission; remote data storage and access using TED Commander. Free iOS and Android mobile apps also available.
For commercial, or three-phase facilities, you will need the TED Pro Commercial models. The TED Pro is designed to monitor three phase electric service up to 5000 Amps, providing detailed and accurate electricity usage-data. TED Pro is a perfect solution to monitor franchises, offices, schools, factories, stores, marinas/campgrounds, or to sub-meter tenant space.
STEP 2: Determine what you would like to monitor.Inside the breaker panel, Current Transformers (CTs) are clamped around the main incoming wires to provide an accurate electrical reading of the amount of electricity the breaker panel is using. It is very important that you know the number of breaker panels in your home or building in order to purchase the correct system. If a breaker panel is a sub-panel, its reading will already be measured through the main breaker panel, however, you can choose to monitor it independently with an additional MTU/CT set. You should know the amperage (200 Amps, 400 Amps, 800 Amps, etc.) as well as the voltage (240/120, 208/120, etc.) of each breaker panel.
