    230V 1 phase wattmeter

    I have a 120VAC "Kill a watt", but looking for something that can handle 230VAC, such as for condensing units to measure true power and not apparent. Anyone have something they use for this?

    There are several meters available. Check out Extech for more affordable options. I had an Extech amp clamp that measured true power, apparent power, PF, and phase angle. Cost was about 200 bucks. Or you could clock the electric meter in some cases.

    13 good reviews on it at Amprobe one of the 13 wished that it was waterproof.
