Saudi Standards: The verification of smart electric meters has been completed
The Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization, represented by the National Legal Calibration Program "Taqyees", clarified the metrological steps during which the conformity of the reading and operation of smart electric meters was verified, and that all meters were conformed and their models approved.
The Saudi "Specifications" indicated that the verification steps began with the meter obtaining the approval of the national model, in accordance with the Saudi standard specifications, to ensure the meter's ability to work in local environmental conditions and to fulfill all the requirements and requirements that confirm the reliability of its work and performance.
The authority confirmed that the second step in ensuring the accuracy of the electric meters is the initial verification, which was carried out under the supervision of specialists from "Taqyees" and the approved bodies by making sure of the conformity of the models and conducting tests that confirm the correct reading and operation of the meters.
The Saudi specifications noted that the last step in this process is the periodic verification, which takes place every five years on the electric meters.
It is noteworthy that one of the most important objectives of the legal calibration initiative is to ensure the accuracy of the readings of the legal measurement devices used in commercial exchange operations, in addition to raising the level of transparency in the service provided to the final consumer and achieving the principles of fair trade that guarantee the rights of the consumer and the traders.
