The task of generating a
program for electronic meters can be a complicated one. GE's MeterMate™ program creation software is easy to use and makes the job of
creating and maintaining programs for electronic meters simple. With MeterMate's smart programming, one program replaces hundreds of programs
needed when using competitive software. MeterMate is also the communications link to GE kV family of meters (kV, kVs, kVe, and kV2) and
Encompass Family of Meters (kV2c ,kV2c+). It provides local OPTOCOM, remote telephone, and RS-232/485 communications from your PC to your
kV meters. MeterMate Load Profile (MMLp), an optional software extension, provides analysis of load profile data.
Modular Program Development
MeterMate Program Creation software allows you to create program building blocks from standard sets of related parameters. You can configure each of the parameters in a building block to make the meter work the way you want it to. These building blocks are then assigned names and saved in a database. To create a program, you select from the existing building blocks. Individual blocks can be shared across numerous programs. The currently available blocks are:
Basic Meter Configuration
I/O & Alerts
Modem Option Program Types
When creating programs in MeterMate, you work with a default rate type. Once the default rate type is selected, MeterMate customizes its behavior for that type of program.
