So, I’ve had my sense for a long time. And even brought it from my old house in California to my new home in CT. I’ve had my ups and downs with the product, but I am generally happy and have probably easily gotten my monies worth from it. The data I get from it definitely tickles my nerd pickle in great ways. That out of the way, here’s my question(s);
I am currently working with my power company on filthy power. I have lots of data, screenshots, downloaded CSV files collated with power usage screenshots (showing my loads don’t match up with the garbage power sags). The forums have given me great ammunition and knowledge on how to approach the power company with this data. So the root problem MAY be solved sometimes in the next 9 months or so. You know how these things go.
I am trying to use my google-fu to get information on home sized line filters, capacitor banks and more to try and protect my home from the garbage truck juice power quality our home has. But all I get is truckloads of snake oil solutions on “How I can save 45% off my power bill!” and other hot trash scams.
- Anyone with moderate levels of knowledge have any definitive answers on any devices that can help clean up my incoming power? I am asking about jagged spikes and large phase differentials, not prolonged sags (nothing but backup power can fix that). I work for an Injection Molding Manufacturer and work with 480V electronics as part of my job, and we have all kinds of industrial line filters, line chokes and more. But I am not a “proper” electrician with classical training, just hyper-specialized knowledge on how to work on our product lines.
I have a large amount of general knowledge, I am handy, and properly wary of electricity - so I am capable of a great many DIY solutions.
