I am after a LCD/LED display that can be wired into a circuit (240v < 15a) and display the wattage/amperage being drawn on that current. I am not after a meter, but a continual real time display of the load on that circuit - This is for permanent installation.

I cannot find anything that meets this need - but it seems a common need, can anyone suggest something please?

Thanks, but I am not after meter tail clamps or wireless whole house units, simply something that wires into the circuit. I.e. To have one on each feed from the dist box to show very accurately what circuits are using what levels of power. I find that the Owl type units somewhat unreliable, and bulky to install.

You can get din rail mounted devices, which, available real estate and compliance with 134.1 permitting, you could mount next to the corresponding CPD, alternatively in a separate enclosure.

Out of interest, what is the application & purpose of very accurate real time current data, without logging capability?

These things are pretty good and reasonbly priced.
I'v used them before to make a power monitor for anylizing appliance power consumption but they'd also work for your application if you could squeeze then into the space you have.

Here's the monitor I made;
