NES ANSI Smart Meter Device
Open Standard, Reliable Platform
MTR 5000 series ANSI smart grid device and revenue-grade residential and small commercial customer smart meter based on OSGP and ANSI standard communications protocols. Collects industry leading variety of grid health data elements as well as provides alarming on deviation of power distribution service levels. 4x16 load profiles for flexible collection of sensing and metering data for grid health management applications and smart metering.
ANSI Smart Meter Features NES ANSI Smart Meter Features
  • Load profiling; power-quality analysis; time-of-use and prepay billing; integrated, remote-controlled disconnect.
  • Tamper-events detected, logged and communicated even during a power failure; Energy measurement technology highly resistant to DC magnetic fields.
  • Over- and Under-Voltage detection with configurable voltage and duration thresholds.
  • THD detection with measurement up to 10th harmonic to reveal unusual conditions.
  • Forward, reverse, net active energy, kvarh import/export, and four-quadrant kvarh measurements enable customer micro-generation sources and power quality monitoring.
  • Each meter acts as repeater to reach other meters and create a power line-based mesh that matches the real topology of the low-voltage distribution network.
Protect Revenue and Reduce Operational Costs NES ANSI Smart Meter Reduces Operational Cost
  • Forward, reverse, net active energy, kvarh import/export, and four-quadrant kvarh measurements enable customer micro-generation sources and power quality monitoring.
  • Tampering attempts are detected on cover removal and magnetic field presence. All events are detected and logged - even during power failures - and then securely communicated in a timely manner. Energy measuring technology is highly resistant to DC magnetic fields.
Proven, Secure and Reliable Choice NES ANSI Smart Meter Is Proven, Reliable Choice
  • Millions of meters deployed with 20 year service life.
  • Each meter acts as repeater to reach other meters and establish a power line mesh network that shows the real topology of the low-voltage distribution system.
A Smart Meter and Powerful Grid Sensor in One NES ANSI Smart Meter Grid Sensor
  • Load profiling; billing for time-of-use, prepay, and optional max demand; power-quality analysis of 271 grid health measurement elements; remote-controlled disconnect/reconnect switch; comprehensive display, home area networking support.
Open Communications for Expandability and Interoperability NES ANSI Smart Grid Applications
  • Optional serial multipurpose expansion port (MEP) allows secure hardware extensions for communication with in-home devices as well as gas, heat and water meters.
  • OSGP certified, delivering data at industry leading availability rates enabling smart grid applications.
