144 Bug

I have been in contact with Mark on my energy@home project and found Mark’s website which led me to a disappointing discovery – bug in the CurrentCost device.

Whilst it has not affected me yet it is somewhat disconcerning that the bug has existed over 2 generation of a product and still remains unfixed by the manufacturer.

The bug happens when multiple sensors are connected and the watts go over 3kW on either 2nd or 3rd channel. Whilst I am only using one sensor currently I was hoping the IAM sensors due to be released by CurrentCost won’t be affected. The pessimist I am I somehow doubt it if I hooked it up to a 3kW+ appliance e.g kettle.
