Chapter 3: Installation
Installation
Note
All safety codes, safety standards, and/or regulations shall be strictly observed
installation, operation, and maintenance of this device. This device shall be installed in
an un-energized condition and as per the National Electric Code.
Choose a mounting location that offers a flat, rigid mounting surface capable of
supporting the weight of the equipment. The unit weighs 25 lbs (11.4 kg) maximum. Mount
the equipment in a suitable environment. These enclosures are designed for NEMA 1
environments and are manufactured of painted steel.
Check to make certain that there are no pipes, wires, or other mounting hazards in the
immediate mounting area that could create a problem. Also make sure you have enough
clearance around the enclosure to run wiring to it safely. GE Multilin recommends at least 2
feet of clearance around the enclosure.
Carefully remove all packing material from the unit. Even though an equipment inspection
was made when the equipment was received, make another careful inspection of the
enclosure and the devices inside as packing material is removed. Be especially alert for
distorted metal, loose wires, or damaged components. This is important because wiring
can come loose in shipping and could cause a short circuit or voltage to be on the wrong
terminal. Please inspect to make sure all the wiring is in the proper place. Refer to figures
3-1 and 3-2 for internal wiring schematics.
Note
Extreme care shall be taken when mounting the enclosure, and making wire entry
holes, to prevent metal chips, filings, and other contaminants from entering the
enclosure which may damage the equipment and create a hazardous condition.

CHAPTER 3: INSTALLATION
3.1 Recommended Procedures for Wire Entry Hole
Cutting
The enclosure does not come with wire entry holes (punch entries). They must be cut in the
location you want depending on the installation. See Figure 3-3: Location of
Recommended Punch Entries for the locations that are recommended.
Figure 3-3: Location of Recommended Punch Entries
Note
•
There are numerous methods for making wire entry holes in the enclosure but it is
imperative that no loose material generated during the process remains in the
enclosure. During installation and cutting the wire holes, all equipment mounted
inside or on the enclosure shall be protected from loose material.
•
No matter what procedure is used the installer shall verify that the hole cutting
process will not damage any of the wiring or components installed inside or on the
enclosure.
The two recommended procedures for cutting the wire entry holes are as follows:
•
Use a "C" frame punch to cut the wire entry holes. This type of punch does not require
a pilot hole. A typical "C" frame punch is shown below.
Figure 3-4: "C" Frame Punch
12
MULTILIN METER ENCLOSURE – INSTRUCTION MANUAL
CHAPTER 3: INSTALLATION
• Regular punch:
1.
Place a magnet inside the enclosure where the pilot hole is to be cut and
completely cover the area with masking tape (or other very sticky tape).
2.
Drill the pilot hole from the outside and do not let the drill pass more than ¼"
into the enclosure.
3.
Remove the tape, magnet, and cuttings and punch the hole.
After wiring and before energizing, vacuum the inside of the enclosure to make sure that it
is free of foreign material. If a vacuum is not available use an alternate method to clean
the inside of the enclosure. Do not use compressed air (or pressurized gas) to clean the
inside of the enclosure as this may force cuttings into areas that cannot be seen, creating a
hazardous condition.
Note
All wire entry into the enclosure shall be accomplished with the use of recognized
fittings or strain reliefs. Bare holes shall not be used.
All electrical connections made to this enclosure must meet the local electrical code.

Chapter 6: Maintenance
Maintenance
The Multilin Meter Enclosure is designed to be relatively maintenance-free under normal
use. However, because of the variability of application conditions and the importance
placed on dependable operation and inspection, you should perform maintenance checks
on a regularly scheduled basis. Visually inspect for loose parts, wires, and/or hardware;
inspect for discoloration of insulation and damaged or discolored components; be alert for
accumulation of dirt and/or moisture on structure; check operation of disconnecting
means and continuity of fuses, where applicable.

CHAPTER 6: MAINTENANCE
6.1
Removing a Meter From Service
Follow these steps:
NoteWARNING!
1.
De-energize all circuits feeding the case.
2.
If possible de-energize lines that the CTs are on.
3.
Install 4 shorting screws, where shown, on the CT connection block - instructions
follow.
If the meter must be removed from service, the secondary side of the current transformers
MUST be short circuited to prevent a dangerous high voltage condition from appearing
across the secondary wires of the current transformer. Arcing and damage to personnel
and/or equipment can occur if the screws provided on the shorting block are not
installed in the correct locations, prior to disconnecting any wires.
The four brass screws that are parked on each corner of the shorting block are used to
short the three high (+) sides and one low (-) side of the CT outputs to the brass bar that is
across the middle of the shorting block. The pre-installed jumper connects all lows
together.
The brass screws need to be screwed down until the end of the screw makes
contact with the terminal strip below, enabling the brass bar to become
electrically common with the terminal strip.
The figures below shows which terminals/holes the screws must be installed in to safely
short the secondary of the CTs.
