        c)    Starting current test

        d)    Dial test (Register test)

        e)    Meter constant test

        f)     Influence quantity test (voltage, frequency, harmonic distortion, etc.)

        g)    Calibration of reference standard meter having lower accuracy than the employed

               reference standard

        h)    Pre-warming

        i)     Dips and Interruptions

        j)     Testing single-phase meters under tampered conditions

6.  Measuring different constants of meters synchronously.

7.  With the protection function of overload, short voltage circuit and open current circuit.




-    Technical specification for 24 position meter test system


The test bench is multiple position up to 24 meters, 0.02% of accuracy class Three-phase Meter Test System with ICTs, with multiple serial port communication system for parallel communication for testing of smart meters.


    Power Supply



    Power Source



    Standard Meter


1.1    General Introduction


The SZ-03A-K8 series three phase standard meter utilize such lasted technology as high-speed DSP, CPLD, MCU and ADC with self-calibration, etc. Thus, the meter can sample AC signal in high speed and treat them with special digital arithmetic. All of these make the meter’s structure simply and measure 0.02% accuracy of the relative error.




1.2    Features




    Suspension test Rack


A.    24-meter position distribute on 2-meter racks, double side two rows,

       each row include 6 positions.

B.    There is a three-colour indicator light on the top of each rack.

C.    Each meter position installs a quick connector QCD, a push hand, a scanning head,

       an error display window, and a DB9M socket.



D.    All the current cable wiring in the rack is 30mm2

E.    DB9M socket is for RS232 port, RS232 is offered by Multiport Serial Server

       which extends 24 ports connect with 24 MUTs.



F.    Optical port reader for meter communication

G.    Isolation Current Transformer (ICT)

Nowadays, more and more energy meter’s current and voltage channel is fixed connection; it is close IP-link meter. For testing of meters with closed IP-link, the unit under test must be supplied with isolated and potential-free current and voltage signals. The previous test bench couldn’t offer such signals, can only test open IP-link meter. TICT-100 series is a precision isolated current transformer (ICT) with active electronic error compensation, can offer the insolated high accuracy current, to test close IP-link meter. TICT-100 series can be installed on the new test bench or used to upgrading the old test bench.
