A single phase, 80 Amp, STS keypad prepayment meter in a compact British Standard (BS) housing suitable for new installation as well as retrofitting of existing electromechanical or electronic watt-hours meters. For new installations the meter can be installed inside the homemaking it accessible for the consumer to enter in a credit token. The meter boasts an easy to read language-independent Liquid Crystal Display (LCD). It has a wide range of information registers which can be accessed by pressing the information button on the keypad and then entering the number of the register.
An 80 Amp split prepayment meter that uses Power Line Carrier (PLC) technology. It is ideal for replacing conventional meters in existing apartment blocks and established dwellings, where installing a dedicated communications cable is not practical. The use of standard household wiring for communication between the meter and customer interface unit makes this an extremely attractive and cost-effective technology. The customer interface unit plugs into the standard electrical outlet in the house and once commissioned, automatically communicates with the meter outside. Using a PLC remote access terminal, the meter (as with all Cashpower PLC prepayment meters) can be accessed remotely, thereby combining reliable STS keypad technology with two-way communications for improved revenue protection. The Gemini PLC meter can also switch to credit metering mode.
A single phase, stand-alone or split prepayment meter in a BS housing. When used in the stand-alone configuration, the meter is typically installed inside the household, but can easily be converted into a split meter by simply connecting the customer interface unit, moving the meter outside the household and installing it in a secure locked enclosure. The Gemini HMI is easy to install and ideal for new reticulation as well as retrofitting of credit meters. It supports prepayment, credit metering and energy limiting mode and has tamper detection features, including Significant Reverse Energy (SRE) detection.
A single phase 60 Amp (80 Amp optional) split meter in a DIN rail-mount housing. Ideal for new reticulation where housing is informal with meters mounted in pole-top enclosures with respective customer interface units conveniently mounted in the dwellings below. The small size and DIN rail housing enables multiple Power-Rail meters to be mounted in a small enclosure making installation cost-effective. The meter has a convenient plug-in communications connector for easier utility access and maintenance. The customer interface unit has a galvanically isolated communication link to the meter - a feature vital for consumer safety. Power-Rail supports prepayment and credit modes. The Power-Rail shroud provides a terminal sealing with a tamper detection capability for the Power-Rail prepayment meter family. A special variant of the Power-Rail shroud also provides compliance with Eskom's DSP34-1635 communications interface requirements.
A single phase 80 Amp split prepayment meter in a DIN rail-mount housing, using PLC communication between the meter and customer interface unit. The standard PLC customer interface unit is utilised which is common to the Cashpower Gemini PLC and Three Phase PLC meters. The Power-Rail PLC meter is typically installed in a pole-top enclosure or secure street kiosk and the small size of the product means that a smaller street kiosk can be used. With PLC technology, the installation is cost-effective with no need to install dedicated communications wires. The meter can be accessed remotely using Landis+Gyrs remote access terminal. It can also operate in credit metering mode. The Power-Rail PLC may also be fitted with the shroud for improved sealing and revenue protection.
A three phase, four wire 100 Amp per phase, split meter in a BS housing. Suitable for residential and commercial environments, the meter has a host of standard Cashpower software features, including the ability to operate in credit metering mode. The meter can be used as a stand-alone meter or converted into a split prepayment meter by simply fitting the customer interface unit with a dedicated two-core communications wire. The meter features a dedicated diagnostics indicator which shows the status of communications to the remote customer interface unit.
A three phase, four wire 100 Amp per phase split PLC prepayment meter in a compact BS housing. The meter has a display and communicates with the customer interface unit by means of PLC technology. It is suitable for residential and commercial environments where PLC communications is most appreciated due to ease of installation and not having to install dedicated communications wires for the split prepayment functionality. Standard Cashpower software features apply, including credit metering mode.
