Metering panel designed for CT metering
The MOD156 is a pre-wired CT metering panel with test terminal block ready for fitting a meter on the front panel, enclosed in a protective metal enclosure to house the CTs, incoming supply and connection to consumer’s tails.
It is a modular meter panel system made up of three separate sealable units that can be arranged and re-arranged to accommodate different incoming cable approaches (vertically, left or right-hand side at floor or ceiling level). Preferably all incoming cable approaches shall be housed inside one cable box.
The modules are wall mounted, so please bear in mind the total height of the arrangement before installation to make the meter as easy to read as possible.
