Elster A1100 3 Phase Generation Meter
The A1100 is an electronic polyphase meter for domestic, commercial and light industrial direct connected or CT connected applications. The mechanical register version of the meter is available for kWh import one rate applications only. Five LED’s are used to identify the status of the meter/system. The A1100 offers high security with many useful security features. These include phase failure monitoring (A, B and C), reverse run (count, energy reading and alarm), power fail, phase fail and elapsed hours (rate 1, rate 2 and cumulative). These are stored as security data and can be included as part of the display sequence and read via the IrDA or serial data port.
Communication is provided via the IrDA (Infrared Data Association) port allowing the meter registers and security data to be read electronically using a hand-held device. This greatly reduces the possibility of manual meter reading errors. The meter can be configured at manufacture to provide the same absolute serial data as the IrDA port via the meter auxiliary terminals or RJ11 socket.
The pulse output is in accordance with SO standard (IEC 62053-31).
Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) is facilitated by either the IrDA port, serial data output or the pulsed output.
Meters can be supplied to meet accuracy EN 61036 Class 1 or Class 2 requirements or EC Directive 2004/22/EC (MID) – kWh Class A or Class B.

It is a legal requirement that you use an Ofgem approved meter if you are going to collect revenue from the meter readings displayed or transmitted to a data collection system. In addition, for electricity supplies to domestic customer by a licensed supplier, an Ofgem approved and certified meter must be used. Certification is a guarantee of each meter’s accuracy.
