The principal type of wireless Smart Meter that PEPCO is installing in our community is the FOCUS AXR-SD made by Landis+Gyr. There are three displays on your smart meter. The first lets you know if your electric service is on. The second shows you how much electricity in kilowatt-hours (kWh) you have used for the current billing term.
That’s also called your cumulative usage. The third number shows your electricity demand reading. Description: Expanding on Landis+Gyr’s proven and industry leading AX solution, the FOCUS AXe-SD provides enhanced security with tamper detection features, more power and memory and reliable functionality for the utmost in performance today—and the future. Landis + Gyr solar meter Indicators at the bottom of the readout show the flow of electricity.
Which is the correct way to read a SRP meter?
When the indicators are moving from right to left, your solar system is producing energy and sending it to SRP. When the indicators are moving from left to right, your home is purchasing power from the SRP system. To read the meter:. press the middle button – it should say ‘R1’. write down the number below ‘IMP’ from left to right – this is usually your night or ‘off-peak’ reading. press the middle button again – it should say ‘R2’. write down the number below ‘IMP’ from left to right – this is usually your day or ‘peak’ reading. To get a reading from these smart meters:. Press 9 on the keypad. A series of letters will appear: IMP KWH. Then you’ll see 8 digits (e.g.
0012565.3) followed by kWh at the bottom right of the screen. This is your read, so in this case your reading would be 12565. The FOCUS AX-SD is an advanced meter platform with features that rival any meter in its class. With available service disconnect integrated into the meter base, utilities can take advantage of the 200 Amp relay to disconnect power or limit service remotely using an advanced metering technology or manually at the meter.
With capabilities like dual-demand, recorder, and reactive, the FOCUS AX metering platform (including the FOCUS AXe, AXRe, and RXRe meters) can accommodate next generation applications* (pre-pay, power quality, tamper detection, etc.) to enhance the value of your meter sensor ecosystem. Most SRP meters are dial-type meters that have four or five clock-like faces numbered in clockwise and counterclockwise directions (see Figure 2.). For these meters, you need to read the dials from right to left, according to the direction of the arrow.
Is Focus AXR SD a smart meter?
Follow these guidelines when reading the dials: . The FOCUS platform for advanced metering and smart grid applications is designed to enhance your sensor ecosystem with industry-leading reliability and innovative features. Expanding on Landis+Gyr’s proven and industry leading AX solution, the FOCUS AXe-SD provides enhanced security with tamper detection features, more power and memory and reliable functionality for the utmost in performance today—and the future. Two, simultaneous demands (kWh and kVA or kVAR). Detect meter removal/insertion from meter socket. Power quality data (sag/swell). Incorporates either a 200A or 320A motor driven, cam action disconnect switch designed to withstand thousands of cycles at full rated current.
Switch continues operation, even in low voltage conditions. Expanded non-volatile memory. Magnetic/DC presence detection (based on leading current). Optical port lockout option. Supports two methods of calculating kVA/kVAR covering Q1-Q4 quadrants. Enhanced power supply. Surpasses ANSI requirements for surge protection (10KV) and meter accuracy.
Motor-cam driven service disconnect integrated into meter base. 8 channels of Load Profile (Optional 2nd Load Profile recorder available). With capabilities like dual-demand, recorder, and reactive, the FOCUS AX metering platform (including the FOCUS AXe, AXRe, and RXRe meters) can accommodate next generation applications* (pre-pay, power quality, tamper detection, etc.) to enhance the value of your meter sensor ecosystem. The E351 incorporates either a 200 Amp or a 320 Amp motor driven, cam action switch under the meter cover that can safely disconnect service at full rated current.
How do you read smart meter?
The 320 Amp disconnect switch is an industry “first” proving Landis+Gyr’s commitment to offering innovative solutions to satisfy evolving utility needs. Real time rate input (optional)*. Advanced over-the-air-flashable firmware upgrades avoids loss of billing or configuration data*.
*Select features rely on a communications module.
