GEH-7285, kV2c Encompass Electronic Meter Upgrading 4-1 4. Upgrading 4.1 General WARNING : The GE kV2c meter contains lethal voltages. The meter must be completely disconnected from any external circuits before disassembly is attempted. Failure to observe this practice can result in serious injury or death. Refer to the MeterMate software manuals (GEH-5082I, GEH-5084I) for instructions on how to install and enable software options. 4.2 Softswitches The basic kV2c meter provides a powerful platform for advanced metering. Features may be added to the basic meter through “Softswitches”, which enable built-in capabilities. Softswitches may be ordered at the time the meter is purchased, or added in the field. Softswitches may be removed from one meter and installed in another meter. The following table lists the Softswitches available in the kV2c: Switch Description A 2 Alternate Communication B By Quadrant measurements C 1,4 Call In on Outage (Modem) D 2 DSP Sample Output E 1 Event Log G Revenue Guard Plus I Instrument Transformer Correction K 1 kVA - Power Factor, kvar and kVA measures L Transformer Loss Compensation M Expanded Measures - per element measurements N 5 Billing Demand P 2 Pulse Initiator Output Q Power Quality Measures R 3 Basic Recording (Four-channel) T 1 Time of Use V Fast Voltage Event Monitor and Log (Sag and swell, 1 to 65k cycles) W Waveform capture (for harmonic analysis) (70 sample sets - 6 measures per set - V & I per phase) X Expanded Recording (20-channel) Z Totalization Table 4-1 kV2c Softswitches 1 Works in kV , kV2. and kV2C. 5

GEH-7285, kV2c Encompass Electronic Meter 4-2 Upgrading 2 Same as kV—not sold as an upgrade— factory set in all meters. 3 R switch factory set in all kV’s but must be set (optionally) in kV2. 4 Set in Comm Board, not meter, and cannot be downgraded (removed) from meter. 5 An Upgradeable switch in KV2c 4.2.1 Alternate Communication—A Softswitch The Alternate Communication Softswitch allows communication option boards to communicate with the meter. It is set in all meters. 4.2.2 By Quadrant Measurements—B Softswitch The By Quadrant Measurements Softswitch allows the enabled measurements to be tracked by quadrant: kWh and kW demand kvarh and kvar demand 1 kVAh and kVA demand (Phasor, Apparent, Arithmetic Apparent) 1 Q2 kVA(h) 1 Q1 kVA(h) 1 Lagging kvar(h) 1 Lagging kvar(h) 1 Received kW(h) Delivered kW(h) Received kW(h) Delivered kW(h) Leading kvar(h) 1 Leading kvar(h) 1 Q3 kVA(h) 1 Q4 kVA(h) 1 1 Requires K Softswitch to be enabled. 4.2.3 Call In on Outage—C Softswitch The Call In on Outage Softswitch allows the meter to call in during an outage to report the outage. It must be used in conjunction with a communication option board such as the Internal Modem or the RSX board in the external modem mode. The communications option board must have the call-in-on-outage battery pack. The Soft switch is stored in the option board, not in the meter. Softswitches cannot be removed from the communication option

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
