Follow these simple step-by-step instructions to install the Turntide Energy Monitoring Kit (EMK) for most common applications, follow all local codes and common installation procedures.
Energy Monitoring Kit
The Turntride Energy Monitoring Kit includes the wattnode, current transformers (CT),
and a modbus cable.
EMK Wiring Schematic
|Install the Wattnode Power Meter
|Wattnode is typically mounted in the unit control panel and can be oriented in any position with no minimum clearances — as long as ample room to terminate the wire
|Remove green and black terminal blocks to access mounting holes and use provided self-drilling screws to mount the Wattnode securely to an interior panel
|Confirm that DlP switches 4 and 8 are in the UP position and all other switches are in the DOWN position
|Using the provided Modbus cable, terminate the wires on D1+, D1- and any ANALOG OUTPUT COMMON on the Turntide Supervisor, and on A-, B+ and C terminals on the Wattnode
|Install a CT on each of the line voltage wires to the induction motor (i.e., A-phase CT to A-phase line voltage). Separate CTs by a few inches to avoid cross-contamination of magnetic fields. The arrows on the CT MUST point toward the power source.
|Connect the CTs to ØA CT, ØB CT and ØC CT on the Wattnode, with the white wire to the top and the black to the bottom of each terminal
|Install wiring from uninterrupted line voltage to power input terminals on Wattnode.
|Verify all wiring is correct and that it’s safe to turn power on to unit
|Turn power on to the unit.
|Verify the Turntide Supervisor has power and is running by checking for the green RUN LED.
|Verify the LEDs on the modem are on — green for power/wifi/connection to cell and blue for cell signal strength.
|Verify the status LEDs on the Wattnode are green — if any are red, the incoming voltage and/or the CTs are wired incorrectly.
|Verify the com LED is green — if not, the Modbus communication cable may be miswired, the dip switches may be set incorrectly or the programming of the Turntide Supervisor may be incorrect.
|Turn on Fan motor and confirm the status LEDs on the Wattnode are pulsating green
|Contact Turntide (877-776-8470) to confirm the EMK is operating and posting data to the cloud.
|After installation is finished, complete the EMK Install workflow on the XOI mobile app.
