Is there a way to display current on two separate meters with one CT? For example one CT connected in series with a digital panel meter and an analog panel meter.

The output of a ct is a current proportional to the measured current. So in theory this current could pass through any number of instruments in series.

In practice I don't know if this would work well. Possible issues would be grounding in each instrument, or the total burden resistance of the series instruments exceeding the compliance range of the ct.
