How to Connect the Bemko Single Phase Meter

The bemko single phase meter is a smart, digital energy meter that measures your power usage in kilowatt-hours and reports it to the utility company. It also serves as the connection point for your electric service wires to reach your main electrical panel in the home.

It’s a great way to track your energy usage and monitor your electric bill without a complicated system or expensive smart metering solutions. It’s simple, inexpensive and can be easily installed by a residential electrician.

How to Connect the Bemko Single Phase meter

The bemko kWh meter is designed to measure electricity usage in a single phase power supply and it comes with one single core PVC cable for connecting the meter. It is rated for use with 120V & 240V AC. Hence it can be used for both domestic and commercial applications.

To install the meter, the incoming Line 1 IN (Hot 1) wire from the transformer should be connected to the top left lug on the meter. The incoming Neutral (N) wire should be connected to the 2nd lug on the meter.

Next, connect the load side Line (Hot) and Neutral wires to the main breaker box in your house or office. This will allow you to turn the breaker on and off for your house’s appliances, lights and plug-ins.

Besides the meter, you need to have three large-gauge stranded wires (two hot wires and one neutral) that will enter the meter box from a weather head on a metal mast or from underground service. They will then be attached to the appropriate terminals on both the hot bus bars and the center neutral bus bar inside the meter box.

These connections can be a little tricky to understand, so it’s important to have the meter box inspected by an experienced electrician before wiring up your house. This will help you to ensure that the connections are secure and won’t cause any damage in the future.

You should always make sure to disconnect the main 230V power supply before working on any electrical installations. This will protect you from faulty connections that could trip the breaker and cause a fire in your house or office.

Once the meter is connected, you will need to “read the meter” on a monthly basis, either by yourself or by calling the utility company to do it for you. With an older analog meter, you will write down the readings on five dials from left to right and then report them to the power company. With a newer digital meter, you will write down the numerical value shown on the meter’s digital readout and then copy these values onto your report to the power company.

Most electric meters are clear glass-encased metering devices that look like an oversize mason jar. They usually have a wheel or dials that measure kilowatt-hours, and the meter will be able to tell you how much energy your appliances are using. This information will then be used to calculate your electricity bill and charge you accordingly.
