CTFLE Enclosure Installation
Ensure the utility circuit breaker is OFF.
1.
Set the CTFLE near the installation site.
2.
Remove the screws that secure the front panels and
the top section on the enclosure.
3.
Unlock the bottom panel. When unlocked this panel
will drop off the CTFLE easily.
4.
Lift the top section off the CTFLE.
5.
Remove the CTFLE floor plate and use as a template
to mark the locations for the mounting stakes.
6.
Remove enough topsoil so that when installed, the
enclosure will sit one inch below grade.
Note: Position the stakes so that the utility and coax
cables will enter through the bottom of the enclosure.
4.
Bolt the floor plate onto the stakes.
5.
Set the enclosure on the floor plate and replace the
bolts securing the CTFLE to the floor plate.
6.
Install conduit over the utility and coax cables inside
the CTFLE.

Meter Installation
1.
Use the meter cabinet as a template and
mark the mounting holes in the CTFLE.
Note: Mark the holes so that the meter
indicator is visible through the window in the
top panel.
2.
Drill the holes.
3.
Mount the meter in the CTFLE.

CTFLM 6009/6015 Installation
1.
Insert the CTFLM into the enclosure so that
the guide pins on the CTFLM and the
CTFLE engage.
2.
Push the CTFLM until a light “snap” is felt
as the contacts lock into place.
3.
Pull lightly on the CTFLM. If properly
seated the CTFLM will not easily disengage.
Note: Connecting power to the CTFLM will
be done in a later step.

Coax Cable
Wiring
Install an approved 20 A high-magnetic utility circuit breaker.
1.
Refer to the diagram below for wiring details.
•
Connect the black and white wires from the incoming utility line.
•
Route the power feed coax to the bottom of the enclosure and attach to the coax cable
adapter using a pin connector.
•
Attach the stinger lug to the pin connector center pin.
•
Attach suitable solid copper ground wire to the enclosure ground lug and ground in
accordance with local codes.
•
Check for voltages between each connector pin and ground using a multimeter.
Presence of voltage indicates an improper ground. If voltage is present ensure the
ground contact is secure.
•
Reinstall the panels on the CTFLE.
Connect the CTFLM
Refer to the User Manual 990-5501 packaged with the CTFLM for connecting and operating
instructions.
