Prior to Design Master Electrical 8.4, meters had to be inserted on the one-line diagram manually using standard AutoCAD commands. Meters can now be inserted as an integrated part of the one-line diagram.
Use the Insert Meter command to insert a meter on the one-line diagram. Meters can be inserted on the bus of a panel or on a feeder.
Use grips to change the location of the meter. It will stay connected to the bus or the feeder no matter where you move it.
Use the Remove Meter command to remove a meter.
Use the Change Layer System command to change the layer of the meter. If the panel or feeder has a meter on it, you will be asked for the new layer system of the panel or feeder and the new layer system of the meter.
The default customization offers a few options for the meter graphics. You can add more using the Create One-Line Diagram Block commands.
