2. Strip away a couple inches of outer cable jacket, exposing the three inner conductors, and connect them to the EtherMeter.  When using meter channel #1, connect according to the following key: BLACK (Terminal 14), RED (Terminal 15), BARE-SHIELD (Terminal 16).

Alternatively, when using meter channel #2, connect according to the following key: BLACK (Terminal 17), RED (Terminal 18), BARE-SHIELD (Terminal 19).

Apply power to the EtherMeter, and watch the EtherMeter auto-detect the meter register:
