    Hi there,

    Apologies if this is not the correct forum (or in fact message board) to post in, I am new here and did not think my question fit the boxes :p

    Hopefully you can help me or refer to someone who can.

    As the title suggests, I am looking for a multi-phase energy meter with many current transformers, over 20 and up to 60 if possible.

    Is such a meter currently available for purchase from any company, or would this require a custom build? If so, could anyone suggest a company that might be interested - a large number would be purchased at a competitive price.

    I have further specifications, but this is the primary feature of the meter I require.

    Much appreciated,
    Mark Hinds

    This post was extemely helpful, much appreciated.

    Cheers man!

    EDIT: Anothe quick question if you dont mind... I was looking at this meter and was trying to decipher what they defined as an input. Does 48 inputs mean I can connect 48 CTs?

    It seems to have 38 current inputs according to the datasheet.
    It doesn't look cheap though, so I'd check with them before I buy :D

    Thanks praondevou! I will check with them so. Could you tell me how you determined that exactly :p It could help in my search :D I counted 28 "current" inputs from the spec.

    Sorry about that, you are right. It's 28 current inputs. :rolleyes:
