Meters on One-Line Diagrams

Monday, October 4th, 2010

Design Master Electrical does not include a way to include meters on a one-line riser diagram.

Our current recommendation is to insert them using standard AutoCAD commands on top of the one-line diagram that our software generates.

If you would like to see improved support for meters in future versions of DM Electrical, vote for the idea on our wish list and give us suggestions on how you would like to see it implemented.

    We create a series meter and a CT meter using DM. For Series we just create a gutter bus with 1 tap. Then we created a meter block for plan view and one-line that can be selected under gutter bus. Then you then you wire it just like any other device.

    For CT cans we create a CT gutter bus with 2 taps in addition to the meter gutter bus above. The first tap goes to the load and the second tap goes to the meter. We then play with the one line to show a feed going through and a tap to the meter. Not perfect, but it works.
