we are renovating our home room by room. We have been working on electrical, but the top and 3rd floor been delayed due to, well, pure time vs time with then new baby. So the thing about this home is its classic late 1800's and the knob and tube that is there is tied into junctions before new branches hit new box. There are 2 junctions in, one being 2nd floor + hall, one being attic, the bedrooms one outlet, woulda been awesome in the old times.
So this is a low amp situation in a modern world until i can get to new circuits. I have ran over the remaining knob, and, albeit no visible damage or total DIY wreck job from the past, i would like to keep those branch circuits running under 12 amp "full load" peak. The first thought besides low watt bulbs, + modern stuff, was a limiter at a power strip or at-receptacle breaker for each room.
Does such a device exist to ensure no tentacles of these old school receptacles come under too much load? Say, 3 amp at outlet max, or more wishfully, variable up to 15A per receptacle for future new wiring use?
