The A3 ALPHA® meter uses Elster's patented digital measurement techniques that offer high accuracy, repeatability, and low ownership costs.

Building upon standard meter design that includes form consolidation, voltage and class consolidations, 0.2% accuracy class meters, functional scalability and standard two week lead times, the A3 ALPHA meter is available in single phase and polyphase form factors.

The A3 ALPHA meter is a communications platform, and it can be easily integrated into a variety of automated meter reading (AMR) and advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) solutions, including Sensus FlexNet.

Additional features include:

  • Fully integrated with Sensus FlexNet solution
  • fully programmable
  • pre-programmed at the factory
  • wide operating ranges for voltage, current, and temperature
  • complete ANSI C12 protocol capable
  • over 50 displayable instrumentation values including:
  • average power factor
  • high accuracy internal clock
  • polycarbonate enclosure
  • easily upgradeable through software and optional hardware
  • factory-installed lithium battery (for TOU meters)
  • easy access battery
  • advanced four-quadrant metering
  • basic load profiling with up to 8 channels
  • instrumentation profiling with up to 32 channels
  • 128 KB of main circuit board memory
  • transformer and line loss compensation
  • power quality monitoring
  • three-phase power supply (called the “AnyPhase power supply”)
