The 133300 electronic meter is Western Power’s trial meter as part of a trial of the use of smart meters, also known as advanced metering infrastructure (AM’). It is a three- phase meter for direct metering installations with a capacity of up to 100 amperes. This smart meter is capable of two-way communication between the meter and Western Power.
The smart meter will also provide improved accuracy of meter readings, early detection of power quality issues, remote disconnection of power and improved monitoring of power outages to assist maintenance crews in reducing estimation times. The first four digits of the serial number for this type of meter start with 0530xxxxxx. This meter has a liquid crystal display (LCD) to show the electricity consumption that is being recorded. It is also capable of storing interval data (load profile) that can be downloaded.
The meter is programmable for time-of-use (TOO) metering, and is capable of bi-directional (import – export) measurement and recording of energy. 1 Communication Module Cover It protects the communication module of the meter, and provides easy access for technician during maintenance. 2 Nameplate Label Gives the basic technical information about the meter and its serial number. Each meter is assigned a unique individual serial number, and the first four digits are the meter code followed by a six digit serial number. LCD This is the display which shows the total electricity consumption, and for the smart power tariff, it will also display the electricity consumption of the different tariff rates. The meter is also programmed to display the time and date. 4 Test Leeds (Who and Vary) The light (LED) will pulse (on & of when electricity is being used, and these pulses get faster as electricity consumption increases. Phase Indicators These indicate the active voltage presents of each phase. A, B and C. 6 Alternate Display Scroll Button (1) This button is used to scroll the register displays in the sequence that they have been programmed in the meter.
Each press of the scroll button will show the next register display. 7 ARM Breaker Reconnect/ Load Control Boost Button (2) This is used to control or reconnect the meter after disconnection of supply. It is also used as a load control boost button for overriding or connecting controlled loads such as hot water systems. 8 Optical Port This is the meter’s infrared OR) device, where authorizes Western Power personnel download the data from the meter using an optical probe cable connected to a handheld unit (HUH). 9 Terminal Cover Seal The meters are sealed on the main cover at the manufacturing plant.
This seal prevents unauthorized personnel from accessing the internal components of the meter. 10 Terminal Cover It protects the live meter terminals and screws from unauthorized access and safety of customer and personnel. How to read your meter Three-phase AIM Smart Meter This comes with a default program suitable for AAA and SIMI tariffs. The terms import and export are defined from the customer’s point of view. Therefore, import meaner delivered by the network to the customer, and export meaner received by the network from the customer. As such; A.
Standard All Time (AAA)/ Smart Power (SIMI) Tariff Meter for Nun-directional (Import) Measurement The meter is programmed with normal display suitable for both AAA and SIMI tariffs. The LCD display recollections automatically every seconds. If you wish to skip the current display, you simply press the left hand grey button (1) to skip to next display. For each press of the button, the display scrolls/ moves to the next one. For AAA tariff, simply read the LCD display reading on channel “07”. The SIMI requires you to read channels “10, 20, 30 and 40”. Ђ The display sequence and correspondinginformation are listed below; Channel/ Display ID 04 05 07 10 20 30 40 88 Channel Time Date skew Consumed Total skew Consumed Total Current Rate A skew Consumed Total Current Rate C skew Consumed Total Current Rate B skew Consumed Total Current Rate D Test Display Meter Display h:mm ad:mm. Y 000000 000000 000000 000000 000000 $888888 The LCD display recollections automatically every seconds. If you wish to skip the current display, you simply press the left hand grey button (1) to skip to next display.
For each press of the button, the display scrolls/ moves to the next one. The customers import registers/channels are programmed and displayed on the normal display mode, whilst the customers export registers/ channels are programmed and displayed on the alternate display mode. For AAA tariff: Simply read the LCD display reading on channel “07”, which is your Total skew Import on normal display mode, and in order to read the Total skew export, press the left hand grey button (1) on the meter and hold for two seconds until “Alt 1” is displayed on the LCD display, which is the alternate 1 display mode.
Once the “Alt 1” is displayed, the meter will start to scroll through the different export channels automatically pausing briefly for approximately six seconds on each one so that you can read the display. Record the reading on channel “47”, which is your Total skew Export. For SIMI tariff: The SIMI requires you to read channels “10, 20,30 and 40” from the normal display mode. In order to read the Total skew export registers/ channels, press the left hand grey button (1) on the meter and hold for two seconds until “Alt 1” is displayed on the LCD display, which is the alternate 1 display mode.
Once the “Alt 1” is displayed, the meter will start to scroll through the different customer export channels automatically pausing briefly for approximately six seconds on each display so that you can read the display readings. SIMI customer export registers channels “50, 60,70 and 80”.
