The emlite modular metering system has been designed to meet the many challenges that surround early AMR and Smart Metering deployments. Through the versatility of modularity, the emlite system caters for hot swappable communication and functionality upgrades without the need to remove or replace the MID approved metering device from the installation, saving money and time . The range of modular meters cater for the majority of metering installations and tariff types supported by the UK energy industry. Emlite modular meters may be installed as part of a smart ready deployment where they will function as per normal utility metering until upgraded with an appropriate module. Base meter functionaThe ECA2 single phase meter is one of the worlds most compact metering units and ideally suited for a utility's basic single rate meter requirements or used as a generation meter connected to a Solar PV or Micro-generation installation where a claim is made for Feed-in-Tariff payments. The meter provides measurement of active (kWh) energy in both import and export directions with registers shown on the large easy to read LCD display. The electronic meter is highly reliable and capable of withstanding high voltage events and overcurrent without failure. Accuracy is a given and the meter carries a full MID (Measuring Instruments Directive) approval. The meter is resistant to tamper with reverse energy fraud detection and sealing for life. The meter features an optical port conforming to IEC 629056-21 allowing meter readings to be collected electronically using a standard industry probe and software tool. The port also allows configuration of the meter. To allow connection of the meter to a Business Management System or other equipment, an electronic pulsed output version is available.lity is dependent on variant; however, all models include the following as a minimum: 4 quadrant energy measurement, 50 time-of-use rate registers (for each quadrant), Power quality recording - sags, swells, volts, current etc. Physical supply disconnect breakers.
