Providing customers with highest possible international standards in security and reliability at affordable price

The A1160 160 Amp Direct Connect electronic polyphase electricity meter, accredited by ISO 9001 and SANAS 17025 has been launched by Elster Solutions.

“This launch continues Elster’s tradition of providing high quality, reliable and robust meters designed to meet the requirements of our customers and the wider industry,” says Simon Dart, Managing Director at Elster Solutions.

“The A1160 meter is a robust, more secure and more affordable alternative to existing options. Elster has once again answered a market need. The A1160 innovative direct connect meter offers quality end-to-end smart metering at significantly reduced costs.”

As the A1160 is a direct connect meter, no current transformers and ancillaries are required, and installation time is reduced. Furthermore, the new meter has impulse protection at twice the international standards, so it is fully protected against hazards, including lightning interference, which increases the overall life of the meter.

An extended list of functionalities allows the use of the A1160 in many customer installations and configurations. As a multi-function four-quadrant meter, the A1160 provides extensive measurement, instrumentation, load profiling, time of use, maximum demand, security monitoring and historical data recording. The meter can operate as stand-alone or as part of a comprehensive AMR/AMI metering system through a variety of state of the art communication modules, up to 100 kilovolt-amperes (KVA) installations.
