Abstract
A power strip is providing including a housing coupled to a first end portion of a power supply cord, the housing having an electrical receptacle mounted thereto and connected to the power supply cord, the power supply cord having a second end connectable to a power source. A current sensor is coupled to the power supply cord between the electrical receptacle and the second end for detecting electrical current flow through the power supply cord and providing an output signal that varies in proportion to the current flow through the power supply cord. A processing circuit coupled to the output of the current sensor includes a display device for displaying at least one of the current, voltage, power, and phase associated with the power supply cord at the current sensor. The display device can be remotely coupled to the power strip for positioning the display in a convenient location.

A power strip provides simple and quick current flow readings using a standard clamp-type ammeter by means of an aperture passing through the power strip housing. The hot wire and neutral wire passing into the power strip from its cable are passed on opposite sides of the aperture. In this way, the jaws of a clamp-type ammeter may be positioned through the aperture to enclose only a single conduct...
