  • Energy consumption meter indicates a too high standby consumption

Applies to

  • Washing machines


In the case of the energy consumption measuring devices, there are devices which only display the apparent power and not the actually consumed active power.

  • The apparent power consists of blind and real power. Only real power is decisive for energy consumption. Thus, too high a value is measured.
  • When selecting the energy consumption meter, please make sure that it can also display the actual power.
