The Classic - How to install

Pairing the display and transmitter

  1. Connect the display unit power cable to the socket on the back of the display and plug into a power socket

  3. Locate the tuning push switch in the centre of the black transmitter. Using a ballpoint pen, push and hold the switch for nine seconds. Upon releasing the red light on the sensor will rapidly flash for a minute. If it doesn’t flash, try again

When you release the button the screen will show a tuning signal indicating it’s tuning itself to the transmitter. Once tuning is complete your display will clear and return to operation.

Connecting

  1. Take the transmitter and its sensor jaw to your mains meter; select the thick round wire from the meter that leads to your house, its likely you will have four (or even six) cables, the target cable is the 4th from the left. Ensure there is room around the wire for the jaw to encircle the wire and put the clamp around the wire. The best results will be achieved by ensuring the jaw is fully closed - if it can sit perpendicular to the cable, all the better.
