Common Questions About Solar Monitoring

1. Is It Necessary to Reverse the Solar 50A CT?

Yes. For accurate monitoring, the orientation of the 50A CT sensor for solar circuits needs to be adjusted differently from standard installations. Ensure that the "Breaker" marking on the bottom of the 50A CT is directed towards the solar inverter, not the breakers/panel. This adjustment accounts for the reversed direction of power flow in solar generation systems.

2. Can the CT Sensor Measure DC Power from the Solar Inverter?

No. The CT (Current Transformer) sensors are designed exclusively for use with AC (Alternating Current) circuit lines. They cannot measure DC (Direct Current) power directly from the solar inverter. To monitor solar generation, ensure that measurements are taken on the AC side post-inversion.
