The Cashpower Three Phase meter is a four-wire 100 Amp per phase, keypad based prepayment meter in a compact BS housing. The meter is suitable for residential, commercial and light industrial environments.
The meter boasts a large custom display and also features a host of standard Cashpower software features including the ability to operate as a prepayment meter or in credit metering mode.
The split prepayment meter consists of two parts, the meter and the customer interface unit. Communication between the meter and the customer interface unit is by means of Power Line Communication (PLC), using existing household wiring.
No additional communication wires are required. The customer interface unit is compact with a user-friendly keypad and display. It may be installed in any convenient location in the consumer’s home where there is an electrical socket outlet. The prepayment meter contains all critical metering, number decryption and load control functionality.
It operates independently and is immune to any form of tampering on the customer interface unit. The meter is usually installed in a secure, locked enclosure, typically a pavement kiosk. It is outside the consumer’s home to facilitate easy inspection by the utility at any time and to reduce the opportunity of fraud by tampering.
The customer interface is connected by a power cord to an existing mains outlet in the household. Under normal conditions, when there is sufficient credit in the meter, the customer interface unit operates directly from mains voltage. The customer interface has a large backlit display with configurable functionality.
