The CENTRON meter is a solid-state, single-phase residential electricity meter that provides utilities with unparalleled digital accuracy, reliability, serviceability and cost-effectiveness. It is also one of the most adaptable meters on the residential market, providing an array of communications and application options to meet current and future business needs.
Features + Benefits
The CENTRON meter was engineered specifically for the widely varied needs of the residential market. The CENTRON C1S, the basic platform for all CENTRON meters, is a solid-state electricity meter that measures single-phase energy consumption. The CENTRON meter is a breakthrough metering platform designed to grow and change with the utility industry. With its low starting watts and low watts lost, the CENTRON meter is more accurate than  electromechanical meters.

When you deploy the CENTRON meter, you can:
  • Measure the energy usage of your residential customers more accurately and reliably than ever before, at a cost that makes sense in the residential market
  • Deploy a metering platform that will be ready for an automatic meter reading (AMR) system when you are
  • Reduce operational costs by updating aging electromechanical meters that are quickly becoming more difficult and costly to maintain
  • Reduce cases of energy theft and revenue loss due to meter tampering. The CENTRON meter tamper resistance features include measuring energy even if the meter is inverted and detecting when the meter is removed from a live socket
  • When you are ready to deploy an AMR system, the CENTRON meter’s flexible format allows the communications functions to be installed without disturbing the finely-tuned metrology. Options are available for network communications, PLC and an array of radio frequency (RF) protocols
  • Adapt meters easily and cost-effectively to meet the needs of your customers. The modular architecture of the CENTRON meter allows new snap-in personality modules to be installed in the meter without disturbing the finely calibrated metrology board in the lower, measurement portion of the meter. Optional snap-in personality modules include demand, time-of-use (TOU), load profile and various communication protocol options
