What you want to measure is volts, current, and
frequency going to the 220 volt panel, so connections at the
220 volt panel makes sense and is what I did with the
CruzPro meter I installed.
I don't think you need to drill holes
because I think the holes on the back top of the 220 box
will accommodate more wires, but if you do need to drill
holes take care of the location.
This device may have a circular sensor (coil)
to measure amps. If it does, disconnect the hot wire (brown)
between the main breaker on the side of the box and the bus
at the top of the box... then route that wire through the
circular sensor (coil) then connect it back where it
originally was located. The other required connections will
be to the 220VAC Load (hot) wire (brown) and the 220VAC
return (neutral wire (blue). Those two connections can be
made at the bus which has large screw terminals at the top
inside of the 220VAC breaker box. Your device may be setup
for 24VDC lighting. If so, you'll have two wires for
By setting it up like described above, you can
monitor your generator output of volts, amps, and frequency.
You can also check volts and frequency of shore power before
turning on any device. You can measure the amps that you are

I just received the Blue Sea AC Multimeter 8247
I read the instruction and understand it needs to be
connected to the A/C Line 1 and A/C Line 2.
Should I connect of the Blue Sea to the Line 1 and 2
“before” it goes to the (water resistant) box of the 220
Volt panel (in which case they could potentially be exposed
Or should I connect them after it goes to the 220 Volt panel
box, in which case how do I have the wire going out of it
(without making new holes).
Note I could run longer 16 gage to the BlueSea, but the
twisted wire won't be long enough...
Pictures of installation would be nice…
As always, thanks in advance.
