DDS238 anti-tamper type single phase two wire type

DDS238 single phase KWH meter includes DDS238 single phase three wire type, DDS238 single phase two wire RS485 type, as well as DDS238 anti-tamper type single phase two wire type.

DDS238 anti-tamper type single phase two wire type is characterized by the advantages that are as follows.
1. This kind of single phase watt-hour meter is capable of measuring the theft of electricity by reverse connection, ground connection, as well as single live wire connection.
2. It is able to display the current, voltage, power, and electricity demand.

Display Sequence and Information Display Format
1 Active energy kWh XXXXXX.XX
2 Real current A XX.XXX
3 Real current A XXX.X
4 Real power KW XX.XXXX
5 Maximum demand over the periods of 15 minutes KW dXX.XXXX
LED Indication Display Format
1 Impulse The impulse indicator will flicker while the meter is working.
2 Reverse The reverse indicator will light when phase or neutral incoming and outgoing circuits are interchanged.
3 Tamper The tamper indicator will light when the difference between phase load and neutral load exceed 12.5% as well as the power is in excess of 40W.
(Such as connecting to earth or missing neutral line, etc.)

Note: Normal condition is Ip=In (Ip is Phase current, In is Neutral current)

Tamper Conditions Meter status
1 Incoming and outgoing circuits are interchanged/ swapped Measure
2 Phase and neutral cables are interchanged Measure
3 The incoming neutral is disconnected, while the outgoing neutral and load are connected to earth Measure
4 The Incoming neutral is disconnected, while the outgoing neutral is connected to earth through resistor and the load is connected to earth Measure
5 The incoming neutral is connected, while the outgoing neutral connected to earth through resistor and the load is connected to earth Measure
6 Phase and neutral cables are interchanged and the load is connected to earth Measure
7 Incoming and outgoing circuits (phase and neutral) are interchanged, and the load is connected to earth Measure
8 Incoming and outgoing circuits (phase or neutral) are interchanged, and the load is connected to earth Measure
9 Incoming and outgoing circuits (phase or neutral) are interchanged, and the load is connected to earth through resistor Measure
10 Phase incoming and outgoing circuits as well as neutral line are all disconnected. Measure

Our anti-tamper meter can continue to register the active energy accurately even when the supply and load connections have been reversed. To prevent the return flow of load current through the meter partially or fully through the earth, the load connection will been rewired. At that time, our product is insensitive to load through earth irrespective of phase neutral connection. It will continue to register, even if there is neutral connection missing of either source or load or source and load both at a time. However, in these cases, the meter's starting current shall not be in excess of 1 amp. The measurement is not affected by all known tamper conditions including earth load, reverse power flow and source-load missing neutral conditions. Therefore, all the electric energy measured by our product shall be accumulated to the active energy.
