Do not use the circuit pen use the real voltmeter to read the voltage you should get 240 volts line to netural ( it will be red et black or Brown et Bleu depending on which conductor colour you are using ) anything else not in there just call your local electrician due some area I know you will get 415 volts if not pay attetion to the colour conductors format.

The econom7 mean it is a timed circuit to use for water heater or water cylinder (tank )

Pali., As soon the OP mention couple words I knew this person is from UK area so I gave the OP the answer with it.

The Econom7 which it refer to the water heater useage to run on cheaper rate genrally they are latched on during night hours and it will turn off during day time when the rates are higher. simauir to the USA side with old school water heater controllers from seperated meter or special meter with a contractor to use them on cheaper rate.

Merci,
Marc
