SKU: SEN-000137-915-VIR
MPN: HotDrop 300


The HotDrop is a state-of-the-art energy monitoring device that enables real-time visibility into energy usage down to the circuit level. Each HotDrop transmits over half a million data points per year. The HotDrop is wirelessly powered, cost-effective, and easy to install in a range of commercial and industrial settings.

Boasting "better than billing grade" accuracy (99.83%), each HotDrop transmits real-time energy consumption minute-by-minute. That means that in less than 15 minutes, one HotDrop reports more data than many utility meters do in a year.

Using patented technologies, the HotDrop wirelessly and harmonically powers itself and measures energy usage by simply clasping around a wire, which means no external power sources or intrusive installation is required. The HotDrop is completely non-invasive and can sit maintenance-free within a circuit panel, with an installation time of less than a minute.

The HotDrop provides true RMS accuracy, measuring 3,300 samples per second, and transmitting the accumulated energy every minute. Over 500,000 transmissions are reported annually for each HotDrop, based on more than 10 trillion data samples.
