Electricity metering equipment (a.c.) Part 3: Particular requirements - Static meters for active energy (class indexes A, B and C)
|Publication Date:||1 October 2006|
|ICS Code (Electricity supply systems):||91.140.50|
This European Standard applies to newly manufactured static watt-hour meters intended for residential, commercial and light industrial use, of class indexes A, B and C, for the measurement of alternating current electrical active energy in 50 Hz networks. It specifies particular requirements and type test methods.
It applies to static watt-hour meters for indoor and outdoor application, consisting of a measuring element and register(s) enclosed together in a meter case. It also applies to operation indicator(s) and test output(s).
If the meter has (a) measuring element(s) for more than one type of energy (multi-energy meters), or when other functional elements, like maximum demand indicators, electronic tariff registers, time switches, ripple control receivers, data communication interfaces etc. are enclosed in the meter case (multi-function meters) then this standard applies only for the active energy metering part.
This standard distinguishes between:
- meters of class indexes A, B and C;
- direct connected and transformer operated meters;
- meters for use in networks equipped with or without earth fault neutralizers.
It does not apply to:
- watt-hour meters where the voltage across the connection terminals exceeds 600 V (line-toline voltage for meters for polyphase systems);
- portable meters;
- reference meters.
The safety aspect is covered by EN 62052-31:2016.
Regarding acceptance tests see EN 62058-11:2010 and EN 62058-31:2010.
The dependability aspect is covered by the documents of the IEC 62059 series
