IC 970
Overview of the meter
The IC 970 is the latest meter in the IC 900 series
of Information Centres from Autometers Systems
Ltd. With new advances in micro processors and
new added features, the meters are user friendly,
easy to install and simple to programme.
The IC 900 range of Information Centres are electronic meters and great care has been taken to
ensure that they meet the stringent requirements of all the potential users and specifiers of the
product, from the buyer who wants a competitively priced product, the installer who wants
simple fitting with good connection terminals to the end user who wants a quick and easy means
of obtaining information. The IC 900 range of meters meets these varied demands.
The IC 970 meter has been designed to communicate with other systems by means of either pulse
outputs standard on all IC 900 meters or via a separate plug in communication module which is
sold with the meters or can be retro fitted at a later date.
All the IC 900 range of meters have been designed to communicate with Autometers Systems Ltd
Horizon range of data collection units, this enabling complete measurement and data collection
systems to be built up.
A new feature to the IC 970 is the protocol set up information which can be viewed on the display
when a communication module has been installed.
Pulse outputs
There are two optically isolated volt free relays outputs on the IC 970 and IC 990, one relay for
kWh and the other for kVah. Both these relays are fully programmable to adjust the value of the
pulse (4 settings) and the time of the contact closure. Both meters are factor y set to 1 imp/kWh
and 1 imp/kVah.

Product development is continuous and Autometers
Systems Ltd reser ves the right to make alterations and
manufacture without notice. Products as delivered may
therefore differ from the descriptions and illustrations
in this publication.
Communication module
An optional communication module can be fitted to the IC 970 and IC 990 meters offering a wider
range of information which can be transferred to a BMS system.

Wiring information
Power Supply
Installation of the meter
Location
Standard 3 phase 4 wire (IC 900 series) meters are powered by 230 volts AC (47-66 Hz) internally
on terminal 11 (L3) and terminal 12 (neutral).
The IC 900 series of meters should be mounted in a dr y, dir t free environment away from heat
sources and ver y high electric fields. Temperatures should not exceed 50ºC or fall below -10ºC.
Wiring
Installation
The IC 970 meter should be installed by a competent qualified electrician. The IC 970 meter is a
panel mounted meter and therefore must be fitted into a panel where all the terminals are
concealed. A typical panel would be a switchgear cabinet door where access to the terminals can
only be gained by the use of a tool.
Four plastic fixing clips must be
pushed against the metal face of
the meter housing.
Metal Face of
Meter
Housing
Electrical and communication connections are made directly to the back of the meter.
The main electrical connections are made to terminals 1-12 low voltage connections pulse
outputs connections are made to terminals 13-15.
Electrical Connections
2.5mm flexible stranded cable is recommended for all main electrical connections. For the low
voltage communication connections we recommend a twisted shielded cable Belden (2 wire
Belden 9841) (4 wire Belden 9842) or equivalent.
Phasing and polarity of the AC current and voltage inputs and their relationship is critical to the
correct operation of all the IC 900 series meters.

Programming the meter
To reset maximum demand - code 12 (view)
When you receive the meter there will be at least one value that you must programme into the
meter. This is the current transformer ratio. If you want to monitor the neutral current then the
neutral current transformer ratio will also need to be programmed.
Please follow these instructions precisely.
If the meter has been purchased with the communication module you may need to alter the
standard protocol set up. See page 17 & 18 For communication module set up.

Transformer selection
Current Transformer Selection
For accurate monitoring, correct selection of current transformers are critical. The following
paragraphs provide the information required to choose these transformers.
The 900 range of meters use current transformers (C T ) to sense the current in each phase of the
power feed. The selection of the C Ts is impor tant because it directly affects accuracy.
The C T secondar y rating depends on the current input option installed. The standard IC 900
current rating is 5 amps.
The C T primar y rating is normally selected to be equal to the current rating of the power feed
protection device. However, if the peak anticipated load is much less than the rated system
capacity then improved accuracy and resolution can be obtained by selecting a lower rated C T.
In this case the C T size should be the maximum expected peak current +25%, rounded up to the
nearest standard C T size.

Also the C T burden rating must exceed the combined burden of the IC 900, plus cabling,
together with any other connected devices.

Maintenance and service
Field Service Considerations
In the unlikely event that a unit should fail, it will generally be ser viced by exchanging the unit
for a replacement unit. The initial installation should be done in a way which makes this as
convenient as possible.
Metering and monitoring equipment ranges from single phase and Polyphase kWh
electromechanical meters to a sophisticated range of fully programmable information centres.
Also available are Electronic Meters, Panel Mounted Meters, Maximum Demand Meters, DIN Rail
Meters and Current Transformers.
CE Approval.
The IC 970 has been fully examined and tested in accordance with the standards listed and meets
the specified requirements defined in BS EN 61326:1997 inc A1, A2, A3 - Electrical equipment for
measurement, control and laborator y use - EMC requirements.
2. All wiring should be routed to allow easy removal of the connection to the terminals.

Disconnect From Supply
Safety Standards: BS EN 61010-1:2001
1. I t is good practice that a current transformer shor ting block is fitted, this enables the meter to
be disconnected without open circuiting the current transformers. The shor ting block should be
wired so that the protective relays are not affected.
A suitable isolator for both voltage and current terminals shall be included in the wiring
installation, close to the meter with easy access and marked as the meters disconnect device.
If the equipment is used in a manner not specified by the manufacturer the protection provided
by the equipment may be impaired. Current measuring terminals are not intended to be
connected to voltages to ear th above 50Vac.
