Power-Mate Lite 10 Amp Power Meter
The Power-Mate Lite offers full power, cost, and greenhouse gas metering with outstanding accuracy.
Power-Mate Lite (10 Amp)
The Power-Mate Lite provides instantaneous and cumulative measures of power consumption, running costs, and greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, it projects these values going forward per hour, per week, per quarter and per year.
A simple menu allows the user to enter their own energy cost and greenhouse gas values (these will vary by location and power supplier). The Power-Mate Lite also provides technical measures such as supply voltage, current, power, VA and power factor.
Why choose the Power Mate Lite over other Power Meters?
As you may have noticed, we also sell a lower-cost power consumption meter. While that meter is suitable for many applications, there are several reasons why you may prefer the Power Mate Lite. These include:
- Higher accuracy readings - more decimal points on some readings like kWh and Amps.
- Easier to read - backlit screen and 'piggyback' style plug and lead which allows you to hold the display in your hand when the plug is at floor level.
- Projected readings - the Power Mate Lite projects its readings out over a year so you can get a quick idea on annual running cost of an appliance, without having to to the maths yourself.
As professional energy auditors we have been using the Power Mate Lite regularly for many years. It's a reliable, high accuracy tool for the frequent user, or those who like to have the highest accuracy readings.

|Extrapolated Readings||The measurements of Energy, Cost, and Greenhouse Gas are shown as 'Real' (ie. total cumulative reading per timer), as well as extrapolated readings (displayed for Hour, Quarter, and Year).|
|Last Mode Memory||Starts in the last used mode when powered on.|
A '-' symbol is shown on key readings if power is back-feeding through the meter.
Accuracy error for all ranges is better than 2%, (typical accuracy error is better than 1%).

Please Note: The Power-Mate Lite 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.
Main reason I purchased this, was get accurate kW readings that will continue to run the total up. Would appear to be very accurate.
Great product and service from your people also very good.
Works as advertised. No problems. Easy to understand.
Done the job, now I know what appliance is eating me out of my home. great for this purpose
Run a couple of short tests to get used to the settings and the results and you'll quickly find that this power meter is easy to set and use. My first full test was on a six foot aquarium that I suspected was chewing up heaps of electricity. I soon found that it wasn't costing as much as I had thought. Next was the snake tank then one of the water bed heaters. I am impressed by this unit and the amount of information it provides.
Great little unit, used for choosing the correct side Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) for my application. Gave me all the data I needed.
This is really useful piece of kit, easy to use and very informative. It certainly helps to highlight which appliances are using the most power.
