Can the Energy meter be used to monitor multiple loads?

Issue
A user would like to totalize multiple loads with an Energy meter.

Product Line
Powerlogic Energy Meter

Environment
Energy Meter Installation

Cause
The installation guide for the Energy meter does not contain instructions on wiring the meter to monitor multiple loads.

Resolution
The Energy meter is calibrated with the set of CTs that are included with the meter, however the Energy Meter can be installed with up to three sets of parallel CTs to monitor multiple loads.
Since the new CTs are not calibrated with the meter there will be a loss in accuracy of the measured quantities.

Please follow the guidelines in the attached addendum for selecting and installing the parallel CTs on an Energy meter.
