Designed with flexibility in mind, the Vue: Gen 3 home energy monitor seamlessly integrates with nearly every residential electrical system around the globe. Whether you're dealing with single, single-split, or three-phase systems, the Vue: Gen 3 has got you covered. It's smart enough to measure your system's voltage directly, effortlessly adapting to both ~120V and ~240V setups, ensuring perfect functionality in a wide array of environments.

We often hear from curious customers and potential users wondering if the Vue: Gen 3 is the right fit for their specific electrical setup. Here's the great news: this device is a fantastic match for most residential spaces and can even accommodate many light-commercial needs. However, to guarantee the best performance, there are a few technical considerations to keep in mind:

- The system voltage (line-to-neutral voltage per phase) should not exceed ~264V (+10% of traditional 240V systems).
- For the main lines, the line amperage must be below 250A (monitored with a "200A" CT), and for branch circuit currents, below 75A. You can find more details on CT limitations and applications on this article.
- The line-to-neutral voltage needs to be consistent across all lines/phases. Unfortunately, scenarios with a "high leg", where one line-to-neutral voltage is significantly higher than the others, will encounter issues.

Concerned about international compatibility? Fear not! The Vue: Gen 3 is a global citizen, already operational in countless homes across six continents (Antarctica aside, at least that we're aware of). Its design ensures that it is adaptable enough to function splendidly, regardless of whether your system is based on 120V or 240V.

If you're pondering whether the Vue: Gen 3 is the right choice for your energy monitoring needs but aren't quite sure about your electrical system's specifics, we're here to help. Our Customer Support team is eager to assist you. For the most accurate guidance, having details about your electrical system's phase count, voltages, and even photos of your electrical panel or consumer unit can be incredibly helpful.
