The bar for smart meters is changing.

Introducing an EnerNex whitepaper on safety, accuracy and performance testing.

Electricity meter design continues to evolve, but has meter performance testing kept pace? Sensus and EnerNex, the electric power research and consulting firm, answer that and other questions in Modern Electricity Meter Safety, Accuracy and Performance Testing.

After reading this report, you’ll have a fresh perspective on modern meter testing, learning:

  • The history of electric meter design and testing
  • The standards by both the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and Underwriter Laboratories (UL) operate, and
  • How additional testing could help to test, detect, and–in some cases–predict failure at the network, site, and device levels.
