Flexible Current Sensor Solution for Bus Bars and Combo Boxes
Do You have Metal Bus Bar Utility Mains in Your Panel?
Installing Emporia’s standard 200A Vue current sensors around a bus bar is difficult, if not impossible – and decidedly dangerous! Many North American homes have combination electrical panels with the meter on one side and the breakers on the other. These panels typically send the current from the meter side to the main breaker via bus bars. Usually, this would mean that you can’t install a Gen 2 Vue. Now Emporia has a solution!
Flexible Current Sensors Solve the Bus Bar Issue
Flexible Current Sensors are now available from Emporia. These current sensors are meant to replace the 200A main sensors that ship with Gen 2 Vues. They employ a bendable Rogowski coil with a 1.4” (36mm) opening that can fit around most bus bars or into tight spaces where a standard current sensors clamp cannot fit. Installing the Flexible Current Sensors is still dangerous, and Emporia highly recommends that installation be performed by a licensed electrician or other qualified professional.
Here’s What You Get
Emporia Flexible Current Sensor can be purchased as a kit to replace the 200A main sensors of your Gen 2 Vue or you can buy bundled with a Vue. The kit comes with:
- Two Rogowski coil sensors
- Two 3.5mm plug cables to connect to a Gen 2 Vue
