Primary metering units PMU up to 34.5 kV
ARTECHE ME/MK series metering units are outdoor, three-phase, polemounted metering racks.
The rack is made of lightweight aluminium designed to mount on poles in an upright position. It includes two galvanized steel mounting bolts for attaching the metering unit to the pole, with pole diameters available from 8” to 14”.
Optional galvanized steel structures and/or other pole diameters are available upon request.
MK series incorporate 3 combined transformers mounted vertically. Their core is encapsulated with Type B epoxy resin which provides excellent internal dielectric properties and mechanical strength. The external layer of Cycloaliphatic Epoxy Resin (CEP) provides resistance to ultraviolet rays and the effects of tracking and erosion on the exterior of the transformer ensuring a long mechanical and electrical life. The transformer is maintenance free.
The external layer can be manufactured with Hydrophobic Cycloaliphatic Epoxy Resin (HCEP) which improves service life expectancy due to its improved tracking and erosion resistance. HCEP additionally increases the transformer’s weatherability and off ers better performance in heavily polluted environments.
The core is built with high permeability grain oriented silicon steel laminations for low losses. The windings are copper wire with copper plate double isolation. The concentric distribution of the coils prevents magnetic flux leakage, achieving greater accuracy and higher capacity to withstand mechanical stresses in adverse operating conditions.
Partial Discharge measurements exceed the IEEE, CAN/CSA and IEC requirements
