If you have a Prepayment meter, you need to get a shunt installed to prevent unauthorized access to your meter's data. These shunts are not as difficult to install as they might seem, but they are still important. They need to be sealed properly to prevent fraud and to prevent unauthorized usage. However, you should do proper housekeeping on your database to avoid this problem. Moreover, you need to implement controls to ensure that the meter's seals are not altered or tampered with.
The mainboard of the electronic single-phase prepayment electric energy meter has several components. These include sample circuits, metering circuits, control circuits, and a display circuit. The sample circuit has several surface-mount elements, which are connected to the mainboard through the wire. A major technological deficiency of the leakage field affects the meter's measurement accuracy. To solve this problem, a relay is welded to the mainboard. This shunt reduces the leakage field's interference by reducing the length of the mainboard's thread.
The traditional electronic prepaid metering system is made up of three levels. Meters are installed at consumers' homes while vending stations are located in utility offices and appointed agents. To connect the two, a token is used to transfer information to and from the meters. A System Master Station is also necessary to manage the metering system and provide total administrative control. The system is a complex one, and you must make sure your utility staff is ready for the challenge.
With a prepaid metering system, you can manage your cash flow better. This system eliminates the need for account posting, extra billing systems, and bad debts, which can reach 40% in some developing countries. You can also enjoy better energy usage and budget management. In addition, there is no need to wait for the meter to reset or make deposits when using prepaid metering. The system also allows you to easily switch between different billing methods and set a fixed fee for each bill.
