Accuchek-1 is a rugged handheld device for error testing of single-phase energy meters installed in the field. It supports both static and electro-mechanical meter types. Its wide current range, from 20 mA to 60 A, facilitates testing of meters under a range of real-world load conditions.
Intuitive operation and automated error computation make Accuchek-1 one of the most widely-used in-field meter testing devices for utilities and service industries.
Service testing of energy meters
Electricity meters are the main source of revenue for energy suppliers. Without accurate metering data the supplier will lose revenue. Suppliers are responsible for ensuring that metering is installed and maintained correctly, so that consumers are billed correctly. Meters are sometimes installed incorrectly, with wires swapped over, or with incorrectly configured instrument transformers.
For these reasons it is essential to perform periodic in-service testing of meters and associated equipment.
