30 Breakers
2 x B15
36 Breakers
2 x B36
42 Breakers
2 x B42

For larger breaker panels, two kits can be used. For example, for a 60 breaker panel, 2 of the 30 breaker panel kits can be used. The first interface would have both CT strips on the ODD side of the panel, the second interface would have both CT strips on the EVEN side of the panel.

At the heart of the system is the VPE-1911 42 point Current Transformer I/O Module.

Standard Features:

  • Low Power (12 - 24 VDC), Nominal 24 VDC, Supplied via CAT5e Cable

  • Up to 42 Current Transformers, 21 CT's Max per Ribbon Cable connection
