Before shipping you Amper hardware, there are a few choices that need to be made that will decide the types of hardware you are shipped. This article will cover the different options you have for your Amper hardware.
For our hardware we provide two different types of Current Sensors, based on the Amperage level of the wire.
The picture above shows our two sensors - the blue sensor for wires 100A and below, and the white sensor for wires 600A and below. Orders will receive the blue sensor standard unless otherwise noted. When placing your order, make sure to check with your Maintenance or Engineering team to confirm the amounts of each type of sensor you will need.
The second choice you will have to make is the type of Gateway you would like to use to connect your machines to Amper - Wi-Fi or Cellular. There are a number of considerations to make before making a choice. Please see our article Connectivity: Cellular vs. Wi-Fi for more information.
