If you have doubts about which meter is more suitable for your three-phase installation, the Moti-3N or the mirubox TRI, in this article we analyze the main advantages and disadvantages of the two options:
- Moti-3N is a bit easier to install and is fully integrated into the electrical panel, which is more aesthetic and, being hidden inside the box, is beyond the reach of manipulation or theft (if installed in a public place for example).
- The mirubox has the advantage that once installed you do not have to do anything else, the equipment already measures correctly from the beginning. On the other hand, moti-3N must be calibrated. This means that for the moti-3N you would need a portable clamp meter to take a reference current measurement. You can see the installation and calibration videos here. The installation of the mirubox TRI is like that of the mirubox MONO but with 3 clamps.
- There is a detail that may be relevant. Currently the mirubox meter comes with an internal memory and also the Moti-3N with the neutral on the right (it is newer). The Moti with neutral on the left has no internal memory. Memory serves two purposes: 1. Store one sample per minute in case of a communication cut for up to one month. 2. It allows the update of the equipment firmware (the internal software). The firmware update helps to correct errors and introduce improvements.
- For the rest of questions, the two meters measure the same electrical parameters and are visualized in the same way on the same platform.
In general, for the private user in a domestic use, our recommendation is the mirubox TRI, unless the calibration is not a problem for you and unless the integration inside the electrical panel is important.
