  • WATTS UP? Simply plug any device into Watts up?, and the meter instantaneously displays the wattage being used, as well as the cost, in dollars and cents.
    Watts up? provides lots of information, yet it is simple to use. Only 6 values are displayed in the main modes. The other information is available in the detail mode. Clear English wording on the LCD is used to describe what is displayed.

    Watts up? measures the voltage and current thousands of times a second so it has an incredibly fast response time which enables you to "see the surge" of power when appliances are first turned on. The peak value display captures this surge so it is displayed even if it happens too fast to see live. The minimum voltage display shows the line quality and voltage dips. Minimum current and minimum watts can be used to monitor variances in appliances that run continuously.

    Watts up? measures true RMS power (including power factor). True RMS power is what utilities charge for, which can be different than a simple voltage and current measurement (this is called "apparent power"). The duty cycle display shows the percent of time a load is above a preset threshold level. For instance, this threshold can be set to 100 watts and with a refrigerator the duty cycle display will show the percent of time that the compressor is running. A high reading may indicate a bad motor or low freon.

    Detailed Description
    (Manufacturer # ******************** )

  • 120 VAC, 60 Hz, 15 amps continuous
  • True RMS power measured and displayed
  • +/- 3%, +/- 2 counts of the displayed value for loads above 10 watts
  • +/- 5%, +/- 3 counts of the displayed value for loads below 10 watts
  • Accuracy is of the displayed value, not the range. Some devices claim a smaller number for accuracy but it refers to the range. For instance, a specification of 0.2% of the range sounds good, but it is actually 3.6% of the display (.02 * 1800 = 3.6), which is a worse accuracy.
  • Mains supply voltage fluctuations not to exceed +/- 10% of the nominal voltage
  • Rate can be entered from $0.001 to $2.00 per kilowatt hour, in tenths of a penny
  • Input is via 6' electric cord, output is via outlet on top of meter
  • Dimensions: 7" x 4" x 2" (18cm x 10cm x 5cm)
  • Weight: 1.5 lbs (0.7 kg)
