In addition to extensive in-house testing, Sense is fully compliant with UL 2808, a recently updated safety standard released by UL for retrofit energy monitoring equipment. Sense has been certified by Intertek, which is a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL), as safe to install in your home.
Sense, if properly installed, also meets all requirements laid out in the 2017 National Electrical Code (NEC). This means the Sense Home Energy Monitor has been through an extensive set of industry standard safety tests to ensure that it is safe to use when plugged into electrical power and safe to use inside an electrical panel. Per section 312.8, the Sense monitor and its current transformers are listed as a system, designed for field installation in a switch enclosure.
Sense also meets FCC Class B standards for electromagnetic interference. All electrical devices emit electrical “noise” (in fact, the electrical noise emitted by the devices in your house is one of the things Sense uses to identify them!) — and the FCC has a strict set of limits and requires extensive testing to make sure they are not exceeded. Sense has passed those tests and should not cause interference with other devices in your house.
Sense conforms to the following additional standards:
- CSA STD C22.2 No. 61010-1
- UL STD 61010-1
- UL STD 61010-2-032
- CAN ICES-3(B)/NMB-3(B)
