240 Vac Maximum, for use on AC systems, suitable for use as Service Equipment.


Utility Company Requirements Review local utility requirements to ensure that metering equipment meets their standards.


EZ Meter-Pak meter center enclosures meet NEC wire bending requirements, and are designed for wall mounting only (not suitable for floor mounting). All unmetered conductor compartments may be sealed by the utility company.


EZ Meter-Pak meter centers have UL Listed short circuit current ratings up to 100 kA at 240 Vac when properly applied. For three-tier series ratings refer to Data Bulletin 4100DB0301.

Branch Units

  • 125 and 225 A residential branch units are available in ring type or ringless type construction and are supplied with 800 A continuous aluminum horizontal cross bus as standard (Example: EZM314125). For optional 1200 A continuous copper horizontal cross bus with aluminum vertical connectors, add suffix “X” to catalog number (Example: EZM314125X). For optional 1200 A continuous all-copper bussing, add suffix “CUX” to catalog number (Example: EZM314125CUX). NOTE: 5-gang 225 A EZM, EZMR and EZMH residential branch units are supplied with 1200 A continuous Cross Bus as standard, do not add suffix “X” or “CUX” to these units (Examples: EZMR315225 or EZMR315225CU). Plug-in style residential meter sockets are available as ring type EZM without bypass, ringless type EZMR without bypass, and ringless type EZMH with horn bypass.
    Tenant circuit breakers must be ordered separately for these branch units. 125 A max. units make use of Type QO, QO-VH or QO-H two-pole tenant circuit breakers (40–125 A). 225 A max. units make use of Type QDP-TM, QBP-TM, QGP-TM and QJP-TM two-pole tenant circuit breakers (70–225 A), and may also make use of two-pole Type QO (40–125 A at 10 kA max.), two-pole Type QO-VH (40–60 A at 100 kA max.), or two-pole Type QO-H (40–60 A at 100 kA max.) tenant circuit breakers.

  • 225 A commercial branch units are available in ring type or ringless type construction and are supplied with 1200 A copper horizontal cross bus with aluminum vertical connectors as standard (Example: EZML314225). For optional 1200 A continuous all-copper bussing, add suffix “CU” to catalog number (Example: EZML314225CU). Plug-in style commercial meter sockets are available as ring type EZMT with test block bypass (meets EUSERC requirements), ringless type EZMR without bypass, and ringless type EZML with lever bypass.

    225 A max. units make use of type QDP-TM, QBP-TM, QGP-TM and QJP-TM two-pole or three-pole tenant circuit breakers (70– 225 A), and may also make use of two-pole type QO (40–125 A at 10 kA max.), two-pole type QO-VH (40–60 A at 100 kA max.), or two-pole type QO-H (40–60 A at 100 kA max.) tenant circuit breakers.

Note: QO, QO-VH and QO-H tenant circuit breakers used in 225 A branch units require the use of adapter EZM125QOA (purchased separately).

  • 400 A branch units are available in ringless type construction only, and are supplied with 1200 A continuous all-copper bussing as standard (Example: EZML332400). These branch units are supplied with factory-installed type LJL tenant circuit breakers that have a field adjustable ampere rating trip setting from 125 A min. to 400 A max.
    A tamper-evident seal kit is available where needed, order seal kit MICROTUSEAL (refer to NEC 240-6 [c]). 400 A branch units are available as Type EZML with plug-in style lever bypass type meter sockets, or Type EZMK with bolt-on style with manual bypass type meter sockets.

  • Units having 800 A continuous horizontal cross bus WILL CONNECT with units having 1200 A continuous horizontal cross bus.

  • Single phase units (three bus bars in horizontal cross bus) WILL NOT CONNECT with three phase units (four bus bars in horizontal cross bus).

For Load Center Three-Tiered Series Ratings used downstream from Metering Equipment, refer to Data Bulletins: 4100DB0301 and 2700DB9901.
