The installation overview tutorial video contains some useful information pertaining to general eGauge installation. Depending on the type of installation, our split-phase installation video or three-phase installation video may also prove useful.
The powered enclosure kit (PEK) provides a collection of tested, supported hardware to make installing and mounting eGauge hardware. Additional provisions exist for some third party communications hardware as well. The PEK arrives disassembled, and the video below provides an
There are a number of considerations when installing an eGauge, including positioning of CTs, mounting the eGauge, and routing wiring appropriately. The video below discusses these and similar considerations, using visual examples. Of particular concern is determining the correct phasing

The Powered Enclosure Kit (PEK) is a series of tested components that simplify the installation of an eGauge (and in some cases additional communications hardware) in a single enclosure. The PEK may be used in a variety of installation locations.
Correct phasing (associating a CT with the correct voltage reference) is a critical component of the eGauge installation. Ideally, phasing should be verified using a handheld multimeter to determine the phase of a conductor monitored by a given CT. Generally
If warranty coverage is not available, an older or damaged eGauge may be exchanged for a $100 credit towards a replacement eGauge of the latest generation. Credits cannot be "stacked" (so two eGauges cannot be turned in for a $200
The eGauge supports Rope CTs from three different manufacturers. In order to determine which CT to select, refer to the tables below. For JD CTs (colored red) there will be a label located on the CT clip itself: CT Labeling CT Identifier on
Like most solid core ferrite CTs, Accu CTs from Continental Control Systems (CCS) are prone to damage if dropped, struck, or closed aggressively. In order to avoid damage during installation, the CT should not be forced closed. This can cause
