Installing a pre-paid electricity meter is a wise choice for businesses wishing to properly manage their electricity consumption and avoid nasty surprises on their electricity accounts at the end of the month.
Electricity Single-Phase Meters
Single-phase electricity is often used in homes or business where electricity is mostly used for general purposes such as lighting and heating. Single-phase electric power refers to the distribution of alternating current in which all the voltages of the supply vary in unison.
Typical Features of Single Phase Meters
- LCD display
- Low credit alarming (LED or Buzzer)
- Rate indicator
- Rated voltage 120V, 220 – 240V
- Current 5A, 10A or 20A
- Maximum current: 60A to 100A
- Starting current 25mA
- Power consumption below 1W
- User interface: Keypad
- Operating temperature -10 to + 65
- Limit temperature -25C to + 70C
- Humidity Operating 95% RH
- IP rating IP52
Electricity Three-Phase Meters
Power stations supply three-phase electricity which is three times as much electricity along three wires as can be supplied through two wires, without having to increase the thickness of the wires.
Large buildings, shopping centers, factories, office blocks, and multiple-unit apartments generally have three-phase electricity.
Three phase electricity is a smoother form of electricity than single-phase or two-phase power. It is this more consistent electrical power that allows machines to run more efficiently and last many years longer. Some applications are able to work with three-phase power in ways that would not work on single phase at all.
The prepaid meter installation can be done in both existing buildings and new buildings. The prepaid submeters are installed before the supply reaches the distribution board of the property.
- The council bulk meter will supply the prepaid meters in each of the units
- In existing buildings, where submeters are already present, they can be either left or removed
