Installing a prepaid electricity meter is a prudent business choice for those wishing to properly manage their electricity consumption and avoid unpleasant surprises on their electricity accounts at the end of the month.
Single-phase electricity is common in homes or businesses where electricity is predominantly used for general purposes such as lighting and heating. Single-phase electric power refers to the distribution of alternating current in which the voltages of the supply vary.
Typical Features of Single-Phase Meters:
Low credit alarm (LED or Buzzer)
Rated voltage 120 V, 220-240 V
Current at 5, 10 or 20 Amps
Maximum current: 60 A to 100 A
Starting current 25 mA
Power consumption below 1 W
User interface: Keypad
Operating temperature of -10 °C to 65 °C
Limit temperature of -25 °C to 70 °C
Humidity operating 95% RH
IP rating IP52
Power stations supply three-phase electricity, which is three times as much electricity along three wires as what can be supplied through two wires without increasing the thickness of the wires. Large buildings, shopping centers, factories, office blocks, and multiple-unit apartments generally rely on three-phase electricity. Three-phase electricity is a more consistent form of electrical power that allows machines to run more efficiently and increases the lifetimes of electronic equipment. Some machinery relies on three-phase power, rather than single-phase, in order to operate properly.
