Designed to meet challenging Smart Grid applications, the SGM3000 draws on 10-years of solid-state metrology expertise to safeguard critical billing activities. With embedded micro-computing to power a new era of smart metering, the SGM3000 family is ready to rise to the challenge of a shifting industry paradigm.
Enabling Billing & Smart Grid Applications
Traditional billing continues to be a vital component of today's solid state meters, but they are also now a vital part of your grid operation. We've leveraged the strength and knowledge of GE Energy around distribution automation, volt/VAR control, demand optimization, and distributed generation to develop a line of smart metering products that are designed to integrate and provide the critical information needed to optimize grid operation. As GE continues to build on its Smart Grid solutions, you can count on our smart metering products to provide innovative and unique capabilities never thought possible.

Unparalleled design and testing processes
The SGM3000 smart meters support modular, field replaceable communications to facilitate wide area network communications. Designed specifically to accommodate the varying types of Smart Grid communications technology, the SGM3000 communications interface supports a broad range of communications options including GPRS, 3G, WiMAX, LTE, RF Mesh and Ethernet.
The communications interface port is common between all SGM3000 variants, allowing a single communications module to suit different meter models. Industry-standard serial interfaces are also available to support connectivity to standalone or multi-drop communications solutions. Direct connect SGM3000 meters also support built-in power line connectivity to facilitate options such as PLC, DLC, HomePlug and legacy Ripple control technologies.
Plug & Play AMI Communications
Multiple communication options on the SGM3000 allows greater customer choice. With modular solutions optimized for cellular, PLC and RF mesh communications technologies, the SGM3000 can cover a wide variety of communication scenarios.
Home Area Network
Not too long ago, the energy meter was considered the end point in a Smart Grid network. As the breadth of the Smart Grid expands into the home with smart appliances, the meter is no longer the end of the network. With this in mind, the SGM3000 includes internal interface ports designed to facilitate ZigBee, HomePlug and other Home Area Network (HAN) technologies.
The HAN interface leverages the Smart Energy Profile, which facilitates advanced energy management applications and load curtailment of intelligent in-home appliances. When integrated with GE's Demand Response Management Systems (DMRS), the SGM3000 can enable concise load management and data aggregation.
The SGM3000 is GE's most feature rich meter series, incorporating advanced capabilities. We've extended the meter's basic capability to meet demanding tariff and billing structures, and have included additional measured quantities, multiple independent load profiles, extra TOU rates and day types, and dedicated event logs.
Accurate & Dependable
Having a partner that can provide assurance in supply is critical when a utility begins a mass deployment of energy meters. GE's focus and rigor around supply chain excellence minimizes the risk to the utility, giving them confidence to manage installation crews and provide accurate scheduling to customers.
In this time of dynamic regulatory scrutiny and customer engagement, GE helps ensure reliable metering solutions. Our ISO certified labs ensure that product design and manufacturing processes yield a robust product every time, and our testing procedures go well beyond the industry requirements and include some of the most aggressive internal standards in the marketplace today.
The SGM3000 family of smart meters provides best-in-class capabilities for accuracy, typically measured at +/- 0.2%. Utilities and their customers can have confidence in the metered value and measured electricity usage.
