  1. Power meters

The measurement units are located inside the Omni's main electrical panel and the Counter Culture Labs electrical panel. They each consist of two current meters (clamps) connected to a modem that transmits the measured data along the electrical wires inside the building. Each has an associated display and logging unit.

The Omni display and logging is located in the passage between the Omni exit by Phat Beets and Omni main entrance hall. This shows the over-all usage of the entire building.

The CCL display and logging unit is located next to the door into the eastern back room inside CCL (it has the number 2 over the door). This shows the usage of Counter Culture Labs only.

To see historic measurements press and hold the Mode and right arrow buttons until the display says "HISTORY". Then use the Mode button to cycle back one month at a time. Be aware that the power usage will be listed for the 1st of each month, but that is actually the power usage for the entire previous month.

sudo room has the manual for the power meters.
