SINGLE PHASE, DOMESTIC ELECTRICITY PREPAID METERS INCORPORATING EARTH LEAKAGE PROTECTION
The BEC23PE are single phase, Class 2, domestic electricity prepaid meters and are great for low cost housing projects. These prepaid electricity meter incorporate earth leakage protection and a double pole circuit breaker disconnection switch, eliminating the need to install a separate distribution box. In addition, it reduces the cost of the reticulation network, as the meters are designed with a maximum current of 20 amp.

Full Description of this Prepaid Meter
The BEC23PE is a single phase, Class 2, domestic prepayment electricity meter for low cost housing projects. This meter incorporates earth leakage protection and a double pole circuit breaker disconnection switch, eliminating the need to install a separate distribution box. In addition, it reduces the cost of the reticulation network, as the meters are designed with a maximum current of 20 amp.
These prepaid meters consists of a two part housing, comprising a standard passive wall base and the active meter. This configuration allows for the pre-
A user friendly interface is ensured through the large format, custom designed LCD display, a visual consumption rate LED and the numeric keypad data entry terminal.
Each meter has an unique security key and credit is entered to the meter in the form of a secure 20 digit token, though the numeric keypad. Secure data transfer takes place via an encryption algorithm included within the standard transfer specification (STS) and all correctly entered tokens are registered, eliminating token fraud.
Reliability and durability are enhanced as the active unit is completely sealed and all printed circuit boards are conformal coated providing complete protection against lighting and voltage surges and the meter can withstand 420 volts for a period of 48 hours
For added safety to the user, the earth leakage protection is enhanced. The meter provides comprehensive earth leakage protection, even when powered up into an existing earth fault scenario.
The low base current measurement ensures that even energy saving light bulbs are measured as consumed energy.
