Elster A1200 ALPHA METER

The A1200 ALPHA® meter meets or exceeds IEC 61036 standards for 3-phase meters. A1200 ALPHA Meter Software provides multilingual support for setting up seasons, multiple tariffs, and time-of-use metering.

The A1200 ALPHA meter can be configured to allow energy providers to obtain information about their customers. Seventy display quantities can be defined (30 display quantities per display sequence), including phased currents, kW and kVAR, or kVA per tariff, overload threshold, maximum demand, time in operation, demand reset count, and error codes.

With its wide current and voltage range, the A1200 ALPHA meter can be used for various current and voltage ratings, significantly reducing the energy provider’s inventory costs. The A1200 ALPHA meter offers a standard wide voltage range (100 to 415 V) and maximum current rating up to 100 A for direct connect. The meter also has a 12 kV surge protection rating. The A1200 ALPHA meter’s accurate and reliable meter data comes from the patented ALPHA meter chip that is currently used in over two million ALPHA electricity meters installed around the world.
