Fibaro wall plug peak wattage

Hi all,

I’m want to use the fibaro wall plug to measure my washing machine and make an automation based on it. However, when i plug it in after some time it shuts down because it measures 3000 watts. But my washing machine is listed for 22000 watts.

Does anybody else have this problem?

I think it has to do with peak versus average usage. If your machine is rated for 2200 (I think, 22000 seems a bit much but I don’t have any knowledge on washing machines) then it still could have a peak that is higher than that. I read somewhere that this is a common problem with any power measuring plug and some appliances that have a high peak usage.

Hmm, that’s a shame. Looks like no notifications from my washing machine then :frowning:
