Elster Electricity LLC has announced that its A3 ALPHA meter is now available with the AnyPhase™ power supply. This new power supply keeps the meter energised providing there is voltage on any two voltage connections to the meter. The AnyPhase power supply is available on polyphase socket-type and A-base A3 ALPHA meters, and must be specified at the time of the original order.
When equipped with the AnyPhase power supply, the A3 ALPHA meter is powered from all voltage wires of the electrical service. If one or more service wires are disconnected, the meter is automatically powered from any two service wires, including line-to-line or line-to-neutral.
