The EnviR display unit can track up to 10 of these transmitters. The primary channel will be the whole house (channel 0), then you can track the AC/Heating on channel 2 (with one of these 2 CT clamp transmitters), and other large loads on the next individual channels. These are not revenue grade meters, but are accurate to within 1-2% normally. See product details here.
- The Transmitter can accept up to three CT Clamps and collects and transmits the data as channels 1,2 and 3. The transmitter sends a wireless signal up to 100 feet indoors or 300 feet line of sight.
- Installation by a licensed electrician is recommended. It may not be mandatory.
- The transmitter is not rated for outdoor use and must be protected from the weather at all times.
- The Transmitter is powered by 2 D size batteries with a 7 year rated life. Changing of the batteries requires the use of a small Philips screw driver.
- The transmitter assumes 120 volts for its KW calculations.
- North American model is designed for 120/240 VAC 60 Hz
- One CT clamp connected assumes 120 Volts
- Two Clamps connected assumes 240 Volts (2x120V)
- Three Clamps connected assumes 208V Three Phase
- To measure 480 Volt three phase installations simple multiply data by 2.3
NetSmart Web Bridge for Online Access to data:
The Current Cost NetSmart WebBridge connects the EnviR Monitor directly to your router using an Ethernet cable, automatic uploading data to the http://my.currentcost.com/ website. You will be able to monitor your electricity use from any Internet connected computer or web-enabled phone or tablet. Included is one power supply capable of powering both the bridge and the EnviR display, a 4′ Ethernet cable, and 10″ display-to-bridge connector. The online monitoring is free for one channel, but if you want to monitor multiple channels they have a subscription service. This allows for you to have a real-time online dashboard to observe the systems energy monitoring. Using the Web Bridge through Current Cost allows you to have access to your data through their open API, so you can retrieve your data and use it with other applications if desired. This hardware is specifically targeted to the Current Cost Website. See the product details here.

Web Bridge Upgrade
For customers who are tracking their energy usage using a web bridge and want to upgrade their web bridge to monitor multiple channels (beyond the first free channel) we have a remote upgrade option. This option only works for web bridges purchased after September 2011. Web bridges purchased before that date must be manually mailed in (to England) for a flash upgrade. There are two options, the NetSmart (3 additional channels for a total of 4), or the NetSmart Pro (9 additional channels for a total of 10). You can purchase the upgrade here, but will need to send in a photograph of the serial number on the back of your web bridge so that we can proceed with the upgrade.
