New energy meters launched

Minto, NSW, Australia — (METERING.COM) — May 4, 2007 – New single phase (DRK-1P-230-D63) and three phase (DRK-3P-400-D90) module kilowatt hour energy meters, measuring real consumption of active energy, have been launched by Crompton Instruments, part of the Energy Division of Tyco Electronics.

The energy meters feature class 1 accuracy with easy wiring, a back illuminated LCD display, non-zeroing total counter and partial zeroing counter. The load cable is passed vertically through the case/housing allowing up to 63 A direct connection (single phase meter) and 90 A direct connection (three phase meter).

Requiring no maintenance, the new kWh energy meters support energy efficiency and awareness and ensure systems remain balanced and safe. Main applications are switchgear, distribution systems, generator sets and control panels. The energy meters can also be used for energy management, building management, utility power monitoring, process control and secondary metering applications.

The meters are compliant with IEC EN62052-11, IEC EN62053-21 (2003-03), EMC and LVD standards.
