Accurate Power Meter from 15A Sockets
The Power Mate 15 Amp is a precise power meter used for measuring the power consumption of larger 15 amp appliances including:
- Commercial kitchen appliances (cookers, dishwashers, etc).
- Caravan park and boat marina powered sites.
- Many other devices including some water pumps, computer server equipment, and air conditioners.
15A appliances connect to a high current rated socket, identifiable by a taller, deeper earth pin. This power meter can only plug into 15A sockets, pictured below:
15A power sockets have a larger Earth pin
Measure and Uncover Opportunities to Save Energy from Larger Power Loads
The PM15A shares the functionality of the Power-Mate Lite 10A in a 15 amp format capable of measure loads up to 3.6kW. In addition to accurate power measurement, it displays voltage, current, frequency (Hz), power factor and energy. Electricity cost, greenhouse gas readings, and extrapolated readings over hourly, quarterly or annual time periods can be displayed based on power readings at the time of measurement.

Please Note: The Power-Mate 15A device is rated for 'indoor use.' It is not suitable for extended usage outdoors unless the screen is placed in an enclosure (or similar) to protect it from the elements.
Great when using electric kettles and microwaves
This is literally the only 15 amp power meter I could find. I bought this to find out how many kwh I'm using during my welding sessions. It's easy to use, but would have been better if it was just one unit instead of having a massive lead. Not cheap but most good things rarely are. They make a 10 amp model as well. Very reliable.
Easy to use tool.
The meter does everything it says it does and I can see it will be well used. Good purchase.
