How to get a Clear Tamper Token?

One of our most read articles is about the clear tamper token. You can read more about STS Payment Metering here or on the official website of the STS Association. The complete STS system is pretty much secure. Only the power companies or utilities can generate tokens for various meter functions. If a meter is in tamper mode, the utility can figure out the reason by simply reading the log-file inside the meter. So there is nothing to worry about.

Nevertheless we are receiving on daily base requests for “Clear Tamper Token”.

For all of you who haven’t read or understood the first paragraph. If your meter is in tamper-mode and you don’t want to contact your power supplier you have the following options:

Try all possible tokens

This will take you about 40 millenniums depending on your input speed. (One millennium is 1,000 years). You better make a list with all combinations first to avoid double entries. Actually the time gets longer because our STS payment meters and most competitor ones have a lock-out after a certain number of wrong attempts.

Consult your local fortune teller

Maybe it helps and he/she comes out with the right token. Most likely you need to consider a service fee.

Use the Magic Random Short Time Token Generator

It generates a Magic Random Short Time Token (MRSTT) and it’s valid for one minute only. We are using a fancy artificial intelligence algorithm. Due to heavy server load during the day we recommend to choose a time between midnight and sun rise. It’s also important that you have a strong believe.
Putting some garlic on the UIU (user interface unit) helps to avoid the vampire radiation.

In the likely event that it doesn’t work you need to contact your power supply company. In addition it’s helpful to read the first paragraph.

Anyway, thank you for reading and good luck. Comments are welcome :)

Summary for those who are to lazy to read the article

Only your local power company or energy provider can generate token for your meter. Don’t ask us or other manufacturers. We can not help you.

If you still like to ask for a clear tamper token, please tell us what happened before the meter show “tamper”.
It will be interesting for our readers and for further evaluations.

  1. It’s funny how you guys made out time to ridicule yourselves in the name of trying to explain to people that they can’t get rid of the temper on their meter by themselves

    1. Thanks for your comment, Joel. Good to know, that you had some fun too.
      Your summary is excellent.

    1. Sorry, CLOU meters don’t have error codes of four numbers, like your _4026. It isn’t a CLOU meter. Different manufacturers have different additional error codes except standard error codes. Please find out your meter manufacturer and ask your local power company for the answer to your question.

  2. Can you be able to remove tamper with no help of power company, they are taking long for their services

    1. To keep it simple, we can not. Each power company has its own encryption keys.
      A bank card manufacturer can also not tell you your PIN.

    1. When the meter always returns to tamper mode, there must be something wrong in the installation.
      Your power company can solve the problem for your Conlog meter.

    1. Please read this article to understand why a meter manufacturer can’t issue tokens.
      Meter number is particular removed for privacy protection.
