Solar PV Transmitter Cable Positions

Please find below an image of the correct port setup  for a  standard Solar PV monitoring system  using a CM180i transmitter  for the Intuition-pv product  (these are not relevant for full 3 phase installations) 

Please also note port 3 is never used in a standard PV installation

The Left hand wire monitors consumption, the right hand wire (in the middle port)  monitors Solar Generation. the 3rd port should be empty

If you  are not sure which  cable is which for your particular installation just place the two cables as shown above. Then  with your Owl dashboard view open, turn a kettle on and you  should see aft,er a short delay that  your electricity display  values will rise sharply.

If this is not the case and the Solar values rise , please swap the two cables around
