What is the battery storage reading?
We set the Meter to show 3 display readings – Import, export and Net (The net is Import deducted from Export).
What is the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)?
RHI is a UK Government scheme designed to increase the number of renewable heat technologies. It offers fixed payments for renewable heat generated and is expected to significantly contribute towards the Government’s 2020 goal, which targets 12% of heating being generated from renewable sources.
From 22nd May 2018, it is a requirement that all new applications for air source and ground source heat pumps must have electricity metering arrangements alongside their heating systems to be eligible for the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
The EmLite ECA2 single phase meter provides a compact solution for many metering applications. Fully approved in accordance with the Measuring Instruments Directive (MID), this highly accurate meter may be used for utility billing or micro-generation metering.
The ECA2 single phase meter is one of the worlds most compact metering devices allowing the unit to be used in metering installations where space is at a premium.
The meter provides measurement of active (kWh) energy in both import and export directions with registers shown on the large easy to read LCD display. The display features 8×3.5mm characters and can be configured to auto cycle any of the available registers or remain static with only a single register viewable.
The meter features an optical port conforming to IEC 629056-21 allowing meter readings to be collected electronically using a standard probe and software tool. The port also allows configuration of the meter.
The electronic meter is highly reliable and capable of withstanding high voltage events and overcurrent without failure. The meter is resistant to tamper with reverse energy fraud detection and sealing for life.
High quality solid brass cable terminals are used allowing 100 Amp operation. To enable the connection of energy management systems, an electronic pulsed output version is available. The pulsed output connects onto two auxiliary terminals in the main terminal block.
