Is it possible to measure AC output of a 3rd party Inverter using CT clamps?

Hi,

I have a 3rd party inverter DC/AC and would like to keep using it since its not broken.

System will have Victron SmartSolar MPPT, Cerbo GX and SmartShunt, is there any way I can measure AC output of my 3rd party inverter and feed that back to VRM?

Cheers

Mark

No, that is not the intended purpose for energy meters. See the Q11 in the Energy Meters start page:

Thanks, so is there anything else in the Victron ecosystem that I can use to monitor 3rd party inverters, or am I forced to buy a Victron inverter if I want to measure AC output?
You need to have a Victron MultiPlus / Quattro or Inverter to make use of those features of VRM.
