Meter Stacks

All meter stacks are designed for “cold metering” in which individual subservice breakers are connected on the line side of the meter sockets thereby protecting the meter and all electrical equipment installed subsequent to it. Main bus connector kits are available to allow the connection of two meter stacks.

 

  • 240V Meter Stacks can be offered with or without meter sockets.
  • 600V Meter Centers are offered with four 7-Jawed meter sockets rated at 200A each.

Meter Sockets

Meter socket jaws consist of tin plated copper with steel spring reinforced clips for reliable contact pressure. The positive alignment of jaws and stabs is assured by bus straps which are bolted in place for 240V meter centres and factory installed for 600V meter centres.

 

  • 240V Meter Stacks can fit sockets with 4 to 7 Jaws and rated up to 200A each
  • 600V Meter Stacks can fit up to four 7 Jawed Sockets rated at 200A each

Tap Boxes

A Tap Box mounts directly next to the Meter Stack and is required to accommodate the incoming main service cable, unless a Main Lug Feed Kit is used for a 240V Meter Centre at 600A.

 

Standard and Feed Through tap boxes are availble at 600A or 1200A with connecters included. They can be offered with punched or unpunched aluminum or fiber entry plates.

240V Meter Centre Breakers

Compact, high performance type plug-in or bolt-on circuit breakers can be selected to address site requirements. Interrupting ratings of up to 100kA combine thermal and magnetic trip elements that feature isolated pole construction with a common trip bar for multiple pole devices, silver alloy contacts, and high pressure straight-in load connectors.

600V Meter Centre Breakers

Each 600V meter stack has provision for four 3-pole 200A max bolt-on type FXD6/HFXD6 circuit breakers. Non-interchangeable trip unit breakers must be used for this application. Generous gutter space allows for wiring for the top or the bottom of the meter module.

FXD/HFXD6 Breakers

  • 3 Pole 70-200A
  • 22kA or 25kA maximum interrupting rating
  • Non-interchangeable trip only
  • Mounting hardware provided with meter stack
