This item is discontinued. Are there new options?

I need to sense when something is turned on, but it has to be a non-invasive solution.

Not as neat as the module you linked to.

You can look at this How to monitor appliances construction page. Near the bottom is a standalone assembly.

I have used the CT800 triggering a 2450 I/OLinc Sensor Input.

Since it is a dry contact output. Any device that can be triggered by a dry contact switch should work.

It is rated at .5 Amps AC to 200 Amps AC. Others here have used other current sensors. They may give you more choices.
