13 KNOW ABOUT EL The glowing of the EL LED indicates the following: Earth is being used as neutral.Neutral is touching the earth.Phase / Neutral wire is touching withphase / neutral wire of the neighbourNeutral wire is interconnected with theneighbors neutral wire.
14 Wrong wiring, among others things can result in: KNOW ABOUT ELWrong wiring, among others things can result in:Safety hazards (wires are still live, even when the main switch is off).Cause fire (if by mistake, phase and neutral wires get interchanged)Wrong Current flow (neighbours current can flow through your meter)
15 * In general Phase, current is used for measurement. However Good electronic meters have Current sensors in both thePhase path, and Neutral pathFor Measurement, it chooses higher * of the two current.* In general Phase, current is used for measurement. Howeverif neutral Current varies by more than 10~ 12 % then Neutralcurrent selected
16 Electro-mechanical Meter has Current sensor only on one wire All Measurement based on phase wire current even when connected to neutral.
17 But neutral looping may cause the meter to “run extra” Good electronic meters have Current sensors in both thePhase path, and Neutral pathThis is an advantage of electronic meters over electromechanical metersNever buy electronic meters without this featureBut neutral looping may cause the meter to “run extra”
18 KNOW ABOUT ELIf EL is glowing, get your internal wiring checked for any leakages and other problems and also carefully look at the EL LED in the Electronic Meters. EL LED, in Electronic Meters, however small, is of greatimportance and consumers are advised not toignore its usefulness.
