Now that the CTs have been installed in the two panels, a short description of how I wired up the GEM.
As part of my home rewiring projects, I'm also running coax and CAT5 to every room, and have a 1-wire bus that runs through the house. All of this is mounted on a simple plywood panel. Clockwise from top-left: patch panel for cat5 to all rooms, different wiring bundles, incoming phone service and splitter box, in the middle right a connection box for the 1-wire network (plugged into it is the incoming connection from the GEM as well as a temperature sensor crimped inside an RJ45), the GEM intself, and my FIOS home router.
The incoming CAT5 connections, with the main panel already plugged in. I simply used a CAT5 pair per CT, and in the case of two-phase circuits, these are combined here by plugging two CAT5 into the same sensor input. When you do this you have to pay attention to the orientation so that they add up; I found it easiest to simply try which one gave me the highest reading. You can also see the 1-wire cable in the block on the right, and the ethernet board on the right.
Everything wired up with the cover on. Nice clean look.
All pretty straightforward. In the next post I'll show the setup of the Brultech.
