About

The Kill-A-Watt is a tool to measure power consumption for specific devices that run on mains (120v AC) power. You plug it into the wall, plug the device into it, and the Kill-A-Watt will tell you how much power the device has used in a given period of time.

Hackability

Do Not Hack (We will get another one to hack, let's keep one in original condition and functional)

Permissions

This is for general use by members while they are in the space. Measure what you want to measure over a period of time while you are monitoring the device you are measuring, and return the Kill-A-Watt to it's home in the server room when you are done.

Restrictions

I believe this device has a wattage restriction. Please read the manual before connecting to high-load (>10A) devices.

Caution

  • Check the manual before using with high load devices.

Basic Instructions

  • Plug it in
  • Plug the device into it
  • Save power!
