By now the UIU/CIU short-codes for STS prepayment meters are not unified. We have collected and merged all recent requests.
A UIU is mainly for end-customer information and for some utility requests I have my doubts. Is the customer really interested in the reactive energy in the second quadrant from two years ago? Check the four quadrant simulation to get a better idea.
Usually utility engineers will read the relevant data by optical port or review them in the AMI system.
In order to come to a standardization I would like to collect all your additional/missing items based on a three-phase meter. Short codes for unsupported items will remain at the same position, but with a ‘not in use’ indication.
The working principle
During loading of this website the UIU is connected to a virtual meter. This meter is in the field since more than two years and holds all related parameters consistent.
We have initially a tamper mode for demonstration purpose. The tamper can be cleared by using the drop-down menu.
Once the tamper is cleared, the meter starts to run. You can input token with an acceptance probability of 30% or review the parameters.
Thanks for taking a look.
If you have suggestions, just drop a comment. The tool will be updated from time to time.
