      Hi,

      My breaker panel is a 120/240V, 1 phase system with a 200A main breaker.

      The main heating system is from a wood furnace which takes electricity just for the pumps.

      However, the backup is electric going through a 150A 2-pole breaker, so a bigger CT than 50A would be needed. Can the 200A CT for the mains be used for one of the 8 circuits? I could then just order one to use for heating.

      Hello @madoues, the 200A sensor can be used in the expansion port, however, you would need to change the multiplier in the app under that circuit from 1 to 4 to compensate for the different calibration.
