Display
The display will show meter firmware version on power up and then the accumulated energy reading in kWh.
Figure 2.1-5 EM500 meter display
2.1.6
LED Indicators
One LED is located on a front panel of a meter labelled “1Wh/imp” and will flash at a rate of one pulse per
watt-hour measured. The LED will not flash if reverse energy is applied. This is a pulse approximately every
1 minute with a 100W load.
2.1.7
Alarms
The meter does not support alarm functions.
2.1.8
Meter Seals
The EM500 meter is sealed by the manufacturer at the factory. The location of the seal is shown in figure 3.
The seal ensures that the meter has not been tampered or interfered with by unauthorised parties. Please
ensure that the meter seal is in place and intact. According to the National Measurements Act, it is a criminal
offence to remove or tamper with the meter seal. DO NOT install a meter without a seal or if the seal has
been tampered with. In addition, seal the meter terminal cover at the completion of the installation process.
2.1.9
Commissioning
The following points should be employed to ensure correct installation of the meter:
•
Once the meter is energised the display will become active.
•
The LED on the front of the meter should be pulsing to indicate energy consumption.
•
Meter seals must not be broken.
•
Scoop (terminal cover) must be sealed following the installation.
The meter is not designed to be serviced in a field and has no user replaceable parts. There are no internal
fuses. In the event of failure of the meter, contact Ausgrid Metering Engineering support for assistance.

4.1.9
Meter Wiring Check
It is important that the installer checks the wiring of the EM1000 meter once it is
installed.
To check the wiring:

Visually inspect the connections to ensure the correct wire is connected to
the correct terminal of the meter.

When a voltage is applied, the EM1000 meter will turn on and the display
can be read.

Attach a suitable load to the meter (household load or a 100W load lamp).

Check the pulsing LED output on the front of the meter. The consumption
indicator LED (see Figure B3) will flash at a rate of one pulse per watt-hour
measured. This is a pulse approximately every 1 minute with a 100W load.

Check for “Reverse Energy”. This is where the Active and Load Lines have
been swapped on the meter.

For the EM1000. When more than 100 Wh energy (approx 0.5Amps) flows
backward through the meter, warning message “-EnErgy” gets added into
the display list after the last programmed entry and the consumption
indicator LED will not flash.

The warning message is retained until the reverse energy ceases to flow
and the status of the meter is reset using the EMPwin software. The
consumption indicator LED will not flash if there is no load on the meter,
therefore, it is important to test the load through the meter. If the meter is
connected properly, the meter’s consumption indicator LED will start to
flash when forward flowing current is connected to the meter. If this
situation does occur, please ensure that the error is rectified.

Table 4.3-6: EEL Enunciator description
E2 and E3 enunciators will appear on the display independently or simultaneous in the
event of active or latched alarms respectively.
User can navigate to the Set B display on the meter and read dedicated register
values as described in the Display section. When reading the alarm state from the
display a string format is used. The alarm status is displayed as a string of characters,
with each character representing an individual alarm. The register value when all
alarms are present looks like “ESVFRTCMLHXYZNDU”. A full stop appears in each
position when an alarm is not active. Letters always appear in the same location in the
string with a full stop appearing in place of inactive alarms. For example, the display
with only the reverse power alarm active will look like “…....M……..”. Table 6.1-7
below provides description of alarm conditions that can appear on the screen.
Note that an overcurrent event triggers an alarm indicator (▼) on the main display but
will not have a dedicated letter displayed in an alarms register of SetB displays.
Consequently, where an alarms register display does not show any letters for an alarm
but alarm enunciators appear on the display, this indicates an overcurrent event.
Overcurrent alarm will trigger if the current value exceeds 110A over a 2 minutes
period. The meter is not designed to operate at such current values and corrective
actions should be taken if the customer site operates at these load levels.

Energisation Checks
It is important that the installer checks the wiring of the meter once it is installed.
To check the wiring:

Visually inspect the connections to ensure the correct wire is connected to
the correct terminal of the meter

When a voltage is applied, the i-Credit 400 meter will turn on and the
display can be read

Attach a suitable load to the meter. (e.g. household load or a 100W load
lamp) and ensure the red LED pulse indicator on the right side of the meter
display flashes at a rate proportional to the load connected. Note the flash
rate of the led is 1600 pulses per kilowatt-hour.

Also check for “Reverse Energy”. This is where the Active and Load Lines
have been swapped on the meter. If this situation exists the red LED pulse
indicator will not illuminate or flash while the meter has load connected.

Terminal Arrangement
A Finger guard with modem carrier is fitted over the top of main terminals to protect
from accidental contact with live terminals. The Finger guard must be removed to gain
access to the main terminal screws. Make sure the finger guard is reinstated after the
connections are made.
ES3 Part B - Metering Equipment Technical Description for Type 5 & Type 6 Metering Installations 81
The meter is equipped with terminal cover tamper detection. Removing the terminal
cover will release a switch located at centre left above the meter terminals which
generates an internal meter alarm.
If the tamper alarm remains active with the terminal cover closed, ensure the terminal
cover is positioned correctly and fully secured in place.
5.3.6
Display
The display shows information from the meter and can be useful during installation
and troubleshooting. Meter is programmed to cycle through main set of displays
including test display which used to verify that all elements of the display are operating
correctly.
Alphabetic characters will be approximated by the 7-segment display. Display
information longer than 8 characters will scroll to show the entire line with underscore
“_” showing the start of the line.
The Meter display has following main areas:
The direction of energy flow has the convention of P for Watts and Q for vars. A plus
sign indicates energy delivered to the customer while a minus sign indicates energy
generated by the customer.
The energy direction, battery and communication status indicators appear
independently of what data is being displayed.
5.3.7
Buttons and Scrolling
The data is displayed as a series of pages with each page displaying an individual
value record from the meter on the main seven segment display along with an
associated display identifier on the small seven segment display. The meter is
programmed to scroll through the displays automatically. The scroll button will force
progress to the next page each time the button is pressed. The display then will
remain on the selected page for an extended period of time before reverting back to
regular cycling.
There are two display sets in the meter: Set A and Set B. Only pages from the
currently selected display set are shown in the cycle. To change between sets, press
and hold the scroll display button for 2 seconds.
Set A shows the structure information currently in the meter, as per the Structure
Cards. Set B has additional information on the meter status. The display will be
automatically reverted back to Set A after 2 minutes.
To initiate a relay test to test operation of LC relay, hold the Green button for at least
half a second. The LCD will display the message “Connect” and the Load control relay
will connect. This can be verified by the enunciator E5 changing to solid ON.
ES3 Part B - Metering Equipment Technical Description for Type 5 & Type 6 Metering Installations 82
There is a delay (up to 2 minutes) between button press and operation of the relay, as
the meter relies on first charging a capacitor and its discharge operating the relay.
Note: This should only be used for checking the correct connections to the Load
control terminal. At the completion of the check, the button must be sealed to
prevent unauthorised operation.

been tampered or interfered with by unauthorised parties. Please ensure that the
meter seal is in place and intact. According to the National Measurements Act, it is a
criminal offence to remove or tamper with the meter seal. DO NOT install a meter
without a seal or if the seal has been tampered with.
Fit a seal to the terminal cover (meter scoop) through the central screw at the
completion of the installation process.
5.3.12
Commissioning
The following steps are to be followed for correct wiring and operation of the meter:
1. Inspection
2. Phase check
3. “Energy Direction”
check
Visually inspect the connection to ensure the correct wire is
connected to the correct terminals of the meter.
Ensure the Meter main seal is not broken.
When a voltage is applied, the meter will turn on and the
display can be read.
Attach the Load Tester to the meter
Check for “Energy Direction” prior to re-connection of the
customer load. With a test load connected, the display should
be checked to ensure the presence of the “
“symbol.
If the Active and Load line have been swapped, reverse energy
is indicated by the”
” symbol at the top left of the display.
For the non-bi-directional structures, there will also be a
warning code M (looks like n) displayed on the LCD in the Set
B display against ‘C ALA”.
If a “Reverse Energy” situation does occur, this error must
be rectified immediately.
After correcting the wiring, the display should be checked to
ensure the presence of the “
“symbol.

The following steps are to be followed for correct wiring and operation of the meter:
1. Inspection
Visually inspect the connection to ensure the correct wire is
connected to the correct terminals of the meter.
Ensure the Meter main seal is not be broken.
2. Phase check
3. “Reverse
Energy” check
4. Operation check
with Load
connected
6.3.13
Ensure the three voltage links are in the closed/shorted
position before installation.
When a voltage is applied, the meter will turn on and the
display can be read. The Phase LED indicators will be ON to
indicate the presence of the phase voltages.
Attach the Load Tester to the meter
Check for “Reverse Energy” prior to re-connection of the
customer load. This is where the Active and Load line may
have been swapped. If this situation exists a warning code F
000100 is displayed on the LCD in the Alt display. Or use
the power factor display and look at the quadrant
information to work out whether energy is flowing to or from
the supply. The reverse energy alarm is only active in St 19
program.
Check the pulsing LED output on the front of the meter.
The consumption indicator LED (the one on the left) will
flash at a rate of one pulse per 1 Wh measured and should
flash proportionally to the load connected via the Load
Tester.
5. Date/Time check
Check date and time and confirm. Note the format Day,
Month, Year (DD.MM.YYYY)
6. Initial check
Select the Alternate 2 display and confirm that all readings
are consistent with the load connected to the meter.
7. Connect load
Connect customer load. Pulse LED should flash if there is
consumption.
8. Finish installation
Seal the meter.
Error and Warning Codes
The meter can display errors that alert the user to various problems. If the problem
cannot be identified or fixed on site, note the error code and return the meter to
Ausgrid for investigation.
Error codes have the format ‘Er 0xxxxxx’ and will be displayed on the ‘Normal’ display.
Warning codes have the format ‘F0xxxxxx’ and will be displayed in the ‘Alt 1’ display.
They indicate a ‘less severe’ fault.

To identify the cause of an alarm, a user can navigate to the Set B display on the
meter and read dedicated register values as described in the Display section. When
reading the alarm state from the display a string format is used. The alarm status is
displayed as a string of characters, with each character representing an individual
alarm. The register value when all alarms are present looks like
“ESVFRTCMLHXYZNDU”. A full stop appears in each position when an alarm is not
active. Letters always appear in the same location in the string with a full stop
appearing in place of inactive alarms. For example, the display with only the reverse
power alarm active will look like “…....M……..”. Table 6.1-7 below provides description
of alarm conditions that can appear on the screen.

Load Control Devices
Ausgrid has introduced the use of load control relay as part of its standard metering
configurations for certain applications. Below is the technical formation regarding
these devices.
8.1
ERB Elster LCR-212 Relay
The Elster LCR-212RTC is an electronic ripple control load receiver. It has a property
number prefix beginning with ERB, ERC or ERD.
8.1.1
Features
The LCR-212 is programmable for ripple frequency and time settings, with the stored
ripple configuration labelled on the front panel; refer to Figure 8.1-1.
This unit can be configured as a time-switch rather than as a ripple receiver, however
Ausgrid currently only use it as a ripple receiver.
These receivers can be configured as either 1, 2 or 3 pole versions, e.g. for switching
of multiple loads or phases, and these exist in the network. Generally, 1-pole units
have the prefix ERB, 2-pole ERC and 3-pole ERD. Note that some units may have
been reconfigured to have extra relays installed, but the prefix would have remained
the same.
A few multipole receivers are kept by TCA for maintenance purposes. However,
Ausgrid now only purchase 1 pole ERB prefix receivers.
8.1.2
Application
Ausgrid stipulate the relay load capability is up to 25 A.
If the load is greater, use the relay to drive a contactor with a suitable current rating to
suit the load.
For multiple phase loads or circuits, use a contactor driven by the ERB receiver.
8.1.3
Layout of the Receiver
The layout of the LCR-212 ripple receiver is shown in Figure 8.1-1below:

8.1.6
Installation Instructions
Strip the insulation from the cable as per the gauge on the installation card.
A drilling template is given on an installation card with each receiver.
Mount the receiver in a vertical position out of direct sunlight
Fit the incoming active line into the relay “A” terminal as shown on the card and fit the
neutral line into the “N” terminal.
Using the active link, bridge the active line to the receiver Active “A”.
Tighten all receiver terminals firmly to a torque of between 3.5 – 4.0 Nm. DO NOT
overtighten the case top and terminal cover screws as this may result in the case
cracking.
Check the wires are secured in the terminals by pulling the wires side to side and
twisting them; this will ensure strands are correctly bedded in. Retighten the screws as
in step 5.
Note: To achieve IP54 sealing, the receiver must be mounted vertically.

Energisation Check
The following steps are to be followed for correct wiring and operation of the meter:
1. Inspection
Visually inspect the connection to ensure the correct wire
is connected to the correct terminals of the relay.
2. Operation check
On power-up, the green LED will light momentarily, and
the red LED will either flash to indicate it is in idle mode or
stay ON to indicate it is receiving a signal.
There are no other operational checks that can be made
on this unit by ASP’s, except to confirm the wiring is
correct and that the relay program label agrees with that
region’s ripple code/frequency/tariff.
3. Finish installation
Seal the relay cover.
Note: The relay enclosure seal should never be broken.

ROM Enermet RO3 RIpple receiver
The Enermet RO3 is an electronic ripple control load receiver. It has a property
number prefix beginning with ROM. It is a standards compliant receiver for detecting
and decoding ripple control signals.
8.2.1
Features
The RO3 ripple receivers are single phase devices with options of up to three
channels switching.
The ROM ripple receiver version is equipped with only one single channel relay (1x
40A On/Off contact) in bottom connected form however Ausgrid stipulate the relay
load capability (according to ES3 rules) as 25 A.
If the load is greater, use the relay to drive a contactor with a suitable current rating to
suit the load.
For multiple phase loads or circuits, use a contactor driven by the ROM receiver.

before use.
8.2.3
Available Ripple Programs
A variety of ripple programs are available to suit the requirements of the ripple control
for the local area.
The programmed frequency of the receiver is indicated on the channel label. For
example, the frequencies shown in Error! Reference source not found. is 744Hz (for
use in 750Hz areas), and 1042Hz (for use in 1050Hz areas).
+100+04 and +103+17 are the programmed ripple channels. (Master / Single
Channel).
2.4V is the minimum ripple signal level to operate the relay.
The receiver is only set for Decabit protocol.

Terminal Arrangement
Error! Reference source not found. shows the terminal arrangement of the Ripple
receiver.
The active line should be connected to terminal 11.
The receiver active terminal should be bridged to the relay active terminal if required.
ES3 Part B - Metering Equipment Technical Description for Type 5 & Type 6 Metering Installations 151
Do not connect the active only to terminal 1 and allow customers load current to run
through a bridge wire.
Maximum cable size for the terminals is 10 mm2. Cable strip length is 8 to 10 mm.
Ensure the cable is installed underneath the busbar in the rising clamp terminals.
Terminal screws are combination flat / Posidriv. Do not use Phillips head screwdriver
bits.

The individual relay has a position indicator to show if it is on or off. The position
indicator can also be manually switched (using appropriate PPE if working with power
connected) to check customer’s load connections.
8.2.6
Sealing
For proper sealing the screw of both the cover and terminal cover have to be equipped
with a seal.
The main cover comes already equipped with a seal which should only be removed if
it is necessary to manually switch the relay for test purposes. At the end of the
installation, ensure seals are fitted to both the main cover and the terminal cover.
Sealing is performed using standard Ausgrid meter seals.
The device is not designed to be serviced in a field and has no user replaceable parts.
There are no internal fuses. In the event of failure of the receiver contact Ausgrid
assistance.

Energy Controls WF 17-30 Time Switch
Description
This device can operate in one of two modes:

24 hour mode

7 day mode.
Twenty four hour mode treats each day as being the same. Seven day mode is not
used at this stage.
This device has the capability of up to 6 ON/OFF switching cycles in twenty four hour
mode.
In the event of a power failure, the device will store its time and program information
for a maximum of 5 1/2 days. This is achieved with an on board super-capacitor. Once
the capacitor is discharged the time and program information is lost and the device will
need to be re-programmed. 5 1/2 days reserve is considered satisfactory.
The switching capability is 30 Amps assuming a resistive load (e.g. hot water heating).
Figure 8.3-1 Model WF 17-30 single channel time switch
ES3 Part B - Metering Equipment Technical Description for Type 5 & Type 6 Metering Installations 154
8.3.2
Installation Requirements and Procedures
Ausgrid will only program the time switches in twenty four hour mode. These devices
are available in bottom connect (4 terminal), see Figure 8.3-2.
The Property Number will consist of a prefix, followed by 6 digits ranging from 000000
to 999999 (e.g. TFB000001).
The prefixes are:

TFB for bottom connect time switches

TFP for the plug in time switches.
Note that the WF 17-30 does not have a battery, and relies on a super capacitor for
temporary backup of settings. Therefore, before use this unit requires the timeswitch
settings to be setup by using the front panel buttons. Follow the instructions provided
under the terminal cover of new units for details on setting the times. As ummary of
button operation follows:
The ‘T’ button is used with the D,H and M buttons to set the date and time.
The ‘PROG’ button is used for setting and changing the switching events.
The ‘C’ button is used to manually toggle the switch position once the device has been
programmed. The toggling will be displayed on the screen, however the relay switch
will only actually change position when powered with 240 Volt mains supply.
Ensure the cover is sealed after installation and programming.
