Black and Decker Em100B Electric Meter Monitor
The Black and Decker EM100B is a reliable, easy to use, low cost device with a long battery life. The unit comes equipped with an electronic energy saver feature which automatically turns off the lights when it senses your home’s electrical load has dropped below certain levels. This is especially useful if you live alone or have small children.
The EM100B features two digital meters, one for AC electricity and another for DC electricity. You simply connect the units together using a standard wall outlet (not included). A built-in LED light indicates the level of charge in each meter. There are no buttons to push; just plug them into any wall outlet and turn on the unit.
The EM100B has a range of approximately 10 feet, but can extend up to 30 feet. It uses a single AAA alkaline battery, so you won’t need to carry around extra batteries. The unit weighs only 3 pounds and measures 8 inches wide x 6 inches deep x 4 1/2 inches high.
The unit requires 12 volts DC power and will not work properly without it. It is water resistant but not waterproof. After an electrical storm, we strongly suggest that you disconnect the battery to prevent a possible fire.
This energy monitor is a great way to keep track of your daily energy consumption. It will display:
– kWh Used Today
– Daily kWh
– Total kWh Used
– Average Daily kWh
– Cost Per Day in $
The Black and Decker EM100B requires one AAA battery (not included). A battery compartment is easily accessible on the bottom of the unit.
The electronic energy saver feature will not work without a fully charged battery installed in this unit!
Black and Decker EM100B Power Monitor
The Black and Decker EM100B Power Monitor has 2 convenient ways to save energy and money. The first is an automatic power saving mode that turns off your lights if it senses your home’s electrical usage has dropped below a certain level. It can be set to different sensitivity levels, or you can turn it off completely.
The second way is a manual mode that allows you to set your lights to turn off after a certain amount of time. This feature is great for forgettingful folks like me who need to make sure the lights are going to turn off even if we forget to. This monitor can be used with any electrical device that is on a standard wall outlet and can be used with up to 15 amps or 1800 watts.
The Black and Decker EM100B is a great way to conserve energy. If everyone in the US had one of these, we could save over 30 million barrels of oil a year.
Is the Black and Decker EM100B easy to use? Does it accurately display your kWh usage?
