Congratulations on purchasing the Cost Control. This is a state-of-the-art power
monitoring socket that is highly accurate and easy to use. Please read this
instruction manual before putting the Cost Control into operation as it will allow users
to gain the optimum benefits of all its features.
2.0 The Cost Control
• Cost monitoring
• Cost forecasting
• Instantaneous power consumption (Watt).
• Maximum load power display (Max Watt).
• Total energy consumption display (Total kilo Watt hour)
4.0 Cost Monitoring:
Using this feature, users will see the cost of electricity in running an their electrical
appliances. For cost monitoring, the value is shown on the LCD as “TOTAL COST”
and the information obtained will enable users to be more power consumption aware
5.0 Cost Forecasting:
Cost forecasting is useful for budgeting future electricity bills as the approximate cost
to run an electrical appliance over a period of time can be estimated in this way.
There are three cost forecasting displays screens as follows:
1) COST/D = cost per day forecast (assuming normal usage)
2) COST/M = cost per month forecast (assuming normal usage)
3) COST/Y = cost per year forecast (assuming normal usage)
6.0 Instantaneous power consumption:
When an electrical appliance is plugged into the Cost Control, by pressing the
“POWER” key, the instantaneous power (Watts) being used at that precise moment
in time can be ascertained.
7.0 The maximum load power display:
Again, by pressing the “POWER” key, the maximum load power (Maximum Watts)
will be displayed. This reading applies to maximum power that an electrical appliance
has used during its monitoring period.
8.0 Total energy consumption display:
Again, by pressing the “POWER” key for a third time, the LCD will alternate to show
the total kWh consumed by an electrical appliance for the monitoring period.
9.0 Intended Use:
The measuring range of the Cost Control is from approximately 4W to 3600W
(automatically varies from one appliance to another) and is therefore ideal for use
with a large variety of electrical appliances.
Cost Control is designed for use only as an indicator for the average cost and
average amount of electricity used for electrical appliances. Despite its accuracy it is
not officially certified and therefore readings cannot be used as evidence in any
dispute between the Electricity Company and the user.
• Cost Control is approved for use on a 230V / 50Hz mains supply only.
• Only loads with the same voltages (230V / 50Hz) can be connected.
• The max. load of any appliances connected must not exceed 3600 Watt (Max.
• Cost Control is only designed for indoor use within dry environments. Outdoor
use is strictly prohibited!
• Cost Control may not to be altered or modified in any way.
• Observe the specifications on the type plate of the appliance to be connected!
• Any other use, other than described, may risk dangers in short circuiting, fire,
electrical shock, etc and damage of this product.
In order to maintain perfect condition and guarantee safe operation of this product,
the user must observe the Intended Use, Safety Precautions and Disclaimer
Liability notes in this operating manual.
10.0 Safety Precautions:
• Connect Cost Control only to an approved 230VAC / 50Hz ± 10% (10/16A) earth-
contact type mains outlet (VDE)
• The max. load of 3600 Watts (16A) must not be exceeded
• The recommended operating temperature is 0°C to +50°C. Higher temperatures
may especially during measurements of large loads lead to dangers of
overheating and permanent damage of the product.
• Do not operate the product within confined rooms or other adverse conditions
where inflammable gases, vapors or dusts may be present!
• For safety, never allow the product to operate in moist conditions or to get wet.
• The product must under all circumstances be separated from mains supply prior
any to maintenance, repair, change of parts or disassembly otherwise
components and connectors carrying high and dangerous voltages may be
• Capacitors in the circuitry of the product may still carry high voltage charges even
though it has been separated from the mains supply.
• In commercial institutions the safety regulations of the alliance of commercial
professionals associations for electrical installations and production facilities
must be observed!
• In schools, educational institutions, hobby shops or co-operative workshops the
use of the product must be responsibly supervised by trained personnel!
• Never insert needles, metal or any other objects into the mains outlet!
• Do not plug one Cost Control into another !
• If the product is no longer able to operate safely, it must to be put out of
operation and disposed of for reason of any accidental use when the following is
a) product shows obvious signs of damage.
b) product does not function
c) product has been stored in unfavorable conditions for a long period of
d) heavy strain during product’s transport may have occurred.
11.0 Setting up:
Before plugging the Cost Control into the mains socket and any appliances into it, the
values must be set.
Firstly, enter the “TOTAL COST” display by pressing the “COST” key to alternate
between “COST/D”, “COST/M and “COST/Y” displays. Now check that all the
values displayed are set to zero as follows: (as illustrated below).
1. Any preset values in the “TOTAL COST” display that the user has not set in
must be reset to zero to ensure accurate readings. To do this, simply press and
hold down the “COST” key (for approximately 4 seconds) and all values with the
exception of Tariff (cost per kilowatt hour) will be reset to zero.
2. Once all the values displayed are set zero in the “TOTAL COST” display, then
press the “TARIFF” key to enter the Tariff setting mode.
12.0 Tariff setting mode:
The value of a single unit of kWh (kilo Watt hour) can usually be found on a previous
electricity bill. Please take this figure from a recent bill as costs may have since been
updated by the Electricity Company. If the cost of a kWh cannot be found on the bill,
then contact your local Electricity Company for the price of this unit. The Tariff
display may not necessarily be set to zero (as illustrated above). If there are any
preset values that the user has not set themselves, then simply overwrite them when
setting the unit cost of a kWh as follows:
1. Press and hold the “TARIFF” key (approximately 3 seconds) until the first digit
on the right hand side starts flashing.
2. Now press either the “POWER” or “COST” keys to set the desired digit. Each
press of either key changes the digits by one. The “POWER” key increases the
digits from 0 to 9 and the “COST” key decreases from 9 to 0.
3. Once a digit is set, press the “TARIFF” key once to move to the next digit.
4. Repeat steps 2. and 3. until the desired values for the kWh are set. If any of the
digits do not require changing then simply press the “TARIFF” key to move to the
next. Once all the desired value has been selected, the “TARIFF” key should be
