Desktop Meter Station

The TESCO Desktop Meter Station is an extremely versatile piece of testing equipment. It can be used as a programming station, a single meter evaluation station, or a test bed for checking meter features and anomalies. The newly designed Meter Station not only has the ability to simply warm-up meters, but also has optional features such as an external load (1PH) or an internal phantom load (0.5A), an optional disconnect operation (1000VA XFMR), a load receptacle, or a tilt chassis. For easy operation, all options are conveniently mounted on the front panel.

To simplify your testing needs even further, the Desktop Meter Station (Catalog No. 2100) has an optional built-in load. This means no more carrying a load box. The loads can easily be switched between 0, 5 and 30 amps (Custom loads available).

Catalog No. 2100 is form selectable (1, 2, 3, 4, 5/45, 6/36, 8, 9, 12, 14, 15, 16) & voltage selectable (120, 208, 240, 277 & optional 480). It features a zero insertion force (ZIF) socket, which makes the unit perfect for both the work bench, and the engineer’s desk. All models are designed to operate using 120VAC input and have a power rating of 500VA. The disconnect models come with a larger power supply transformer and have a power rating of 1000VA.

Are you working with TWACS® AMI Meters? The TESCO Desktop Meter Station has been redesigned and is now compatible with TWACS® AMI Meters. This optional feature will have one set of panel mounted female sheathed banana plug connections and an adapter cable to facilitate TWACS® communications to the meter from the users TWACS® PRTU Module. This gives users the ability to communicate to the TWAC® modules wired either to the L-N or L-L connections on the meter. The TWACS® communication can be turned “off” and “on” with the click of a switch, so that you can test any other type of electric meter in your inventory.

All Desktop Meter Stations are built with the TESCO tradition of reliability and ruggedness.
