A200 BS Single Phase Meter

The A200 single phase meter from Elster provides the ideal solution for one-rate domestic metering applications. The meter offers high security and accuracy well within the Class limits. This is achieved using well proven metering technology. A stepper motor register provides permanent indication of the amount of energy consumed. The stepper motor register has large number wheels for ease of viewing and has the option or either 6 or 7 digits. An anti-tamper feature prevents the register from running in reverse. As an option the meter can be configured at manufacture as Power Flow Insensitive Mode. This feature allows the kWh register to advance regardless of whether the meter is importing or exporting energy. When this option is enabled, the pulsing LED indicates identically for import and export. The meter is housed in a compact double insulated, polycarbonate case. High security is achieved by permanently fixing the meter cover to the base at manufacture. No sealing is required. Ingress protection is to IP52 EN60529:1991. The future addition of Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) is facilitated by the pulsed output. AMR allows the meter to be read remotely by radio, mains signalling or over a telephone line. Fast, accurate meter readings can be obtained for use in energy management systems. The A200 meets the requirements of accuracy Class 1 and is approved to EN 61036:1996.
