[edit] 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.

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

[edit] 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.

[edit] Restrictions

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

  • Check the manual before using with high load devices.
