Hi Carl,

The current sensor is one of these :- https://www.amazon.com/ZIYUN-Current-Transformer-Principle-Magnetic/dp/B01FBMFZCO/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1496929818&sr=8-2-spons&keywords=current+sensor&psc=1

I have a Rigid vac and most of the 5hp ones appear to be 10A, but then the relay module is only $6!

I used this tutorial from Emon and created a small board I could just plug in to the Arduino :- https://learn.openenergymonitor.org/electricity-monitoring/ct-sensors/how-to-build-an-arduino-energy-monitor-measuring-current-only

If you have any other questions, let me know.

Dan
