Digital output applications
The digital output can also be used in demand synchronization applications, where the meter provides pulse signals to the input of another meter to control its demand period. The digital output can also be used in energy pulsing applications, where a receiving device determines energy usage by counting the kWh pulses coming from the meter’s digital output.The digital outputs on the meter are internally designed using solid-state devices with an open-collector configuration. These outputs must be connected to the specified power supply with a current limiter to function. Refer to the digital output application example below for more information.
