Description

Current transformers (CTs) are sensors that are used for measuring alternating current. They are particularly used for measuring whole building electricity consumption (or generation for that matter).

The split core type such as the CT in the picture above, is particularly suitable for DIY. It can be clipped straight on to either the live or neutral wire coming into a building without having any high voltage electrical work.
