This is not a required item for an Omnimeter installation. It is only used if you do not have a free breaker or convenient place to tap your voltage reference wires off of.
We have developed an alternative to this item called the Piercing Split Core Current Transformer. The Piercing CT, combines the functionality of the Insulation Piercing Connector, with a Current Transformer.
