Just installed a 4kW solar panel system and am considering buying a Fluksometer for monitoring. I understand that with a basic config, I would get a single unit with two sensors (one sensor for overall power usage, one for the solar/inverter circuit). But I have a number of other circuits which are heavy electricity users.
What I would really like to do is monitor:
* overall power consumption
* solar power system generation
(would want to know when solar generation exceeds consumption, thereby confirming Exported electricity)
* spa circuit usage
* 2 x aircon circuits
Given those extra requirements, am I right in concluding that I will need 2 x Fluksometers (one with 3 sensors, one with 2 sensors)?
Given all those sensors, will I be able to generate a coherent set of reports that correctly identify when I am Importing power from the grid and when I am Exporting power?
