Questions & Answers

Is there a paid plan associated with this solution?

Yes. For more information on available plans, visit our plans and pricing page.

Does this device come with larger CT sizes for higher amperage?

Yes. Larger CT sizes are available for compatibility with up to 5000A.

Does the device require batteries and/or power?

No, the device uses the magnetic current to power itself. No battery or hardwired connection is required.  Just snap it into place, and begin monitoring.

What is the battery life?

Battery life is not applicable here. The device is self-contained using the magnetic current created by the equipment it monitors.

How often does the device send readings?

This device sends readings once every minute.

What data types does this device send?

Using the myDevices software tools, you can extrapolate many different data types based on the specific use case.  These data types include, but are not limited to: amp, kwH, average run time, run time in the last hour, run time in the previous day, total downtime, etc.

Is a CloudVU subscription required?

No, this device comes provisioned to work with the myDevices suite of software tools so that you can use it with any app or platform without a separate subscription to CloudVu.

Does this device work on any LoRa Network Server?

The LoRa Network server is included in the bundle, no need to provision the devices, just turn it on, and start monitoring.  For custom projects, please speak with our sales team.

Is the data secure?
