A few questions
I have a few questions about this device and I hope you can help me:
1) Given that there are different current ratings for this device and they all cost the same, what is the advantage of using one over the other. I plan to use this for a typical household. Can I just go for the 100A model just to be on the safe side?
2) I plan on using this device in conjunction with the "2-Channel AC Voltage Monitoring Controller" and a Particle Photon. Do I just plug in the Photon in one of the devices and then connect the two devices with an I2C cable, or do I have to use an SI Adapter?
3) To measure the household current consumption, I suppose I have to clamp the sensor over the "live" wire coming out of the utility meter. Provided that the sensor is exclusively around live wire, does the proximity of the neutral wire's magnetic field affect the readings? Those two wires are usually next to each other and run in parallel.
4) If I want to get the true power reading (basically what I think the utility company charges me for), do I simply multiply the current reading by the value reported by the voltage sensor? Apart from the individual voltage and current calibrations, is there anything else I should take into consideration?
