    I've never had the pleasure of working on an EPRI fryer. Interesting concept of cheating the electrical metering by flexing the power factor of the fryer.

    Yes. Micron sensor is a big missing link.

    But make sure it does a display similar to the leak rate indicator on some other gauges. That's a very important part for me.

    NSMA allows for 50 mile radius of normal office unpaid. So there you go.
