How to Read a Digital Electric Meter

The meter has several screens that scroll displaying each screen for approximately 6 seconds.

The meter has a test screen or a segment check screen which consists of all “8”s. The screen following this screen is the kilowatt-hours screen. This is the screen used to read the meter and may be represented to the left of the LCD with the letters KWH depending on the version of the advanced meter.

There are other screens that represent internal settings which are not used as part of the reading. These screens are represented to the left on the LCD with characters such as SC, NG, NT, IKW, TWH, CLS, OPN, etc.
