Meter Equipment Leasing
Metrix owns and leases a large number of non AMI equiptment. This includes load control relays, current and voltage transformers, and legacy meters.
Legacy meter are traditional mechanical meters that have not yet been upgraded to AMI. Most electricty meters in New Zealand have now been upgraded to AMI and it is envisaged that all remaining legacy meters will be replaced over the forthcoming five year period.
Load Control Relays
Load control relays form part of the Distributors load management system used to reduce network load during peak periods. New Zealand has an extensive load management infrastructure which will remain in place for the foreseeable future.
Current and Voltage Transformers
Current and voltage transformers are used to measure energy consumption of large industrial customers. They allow meters to sense the power flowing through large suppy cables.
