Meter Types in ECG

An electricity meter, electric meter, electrical meter, or energy meter is a device that measures the amount of electric energy consumed by a residence, a business, or an electrically powered device. Generally, two broad types of meters are in use in ECG. These are as follows:

  1. Whole Current
  2. Transformer Operated

Whole Current Meters

These meters are connected directly at the entry of the circuit to be measured. They are mostly utilized for Residential and Non-Residential customers with low energy requirements. Broadly, they are classified according to the technology used, and are as follows:

  1. Electromechanical
  2. Electronic

Transformer Operated Meters

These are meters generally interposed (not connected directly) at the entry of the circuit to be measured. Transformer-operated meters are typically of the three phase category and are utilized for demand above 70kVA (or 100A). Typical customers are SMEs and large non-residential customers such as hotels, restaurants, schools, hospitals, etc. The meters have accuracy classes of 1.0, 0.5 and 0.2 depending on the metering application. They may be either electromechanical or electronic.

Projected Life Span of Meters

The projected average lifespan of our meters is as follows:

  • Electromechanical meter – 20 years
  • Electronic meter – 15 years
