Aclara kV2c Gen 5 Electricity Meter


Proven Performance in a Commercial & Industrial Meter

The Aclara kV2c goes beyond revenue metering by offering real-time instrumentation, true power quality and real cost of service measurements. And, with over two million meters deployed since introduction, it’s a proven workhorse meter purpose-built for the challenges of commercial & industrial customers.

The kV2c is internally equipped with a Sensus SmartPoint® module, giving utilities the power and performance of the FlexNet® communication network coupled with revenue grade metering functionality and advanced power quality monitoring.  Whether you are metering the simplest energy rate or collecting critical quality of service and load analysis information on a polyphase or a single phase circuit, there is a kV2c meter configuration to meet your needs.

The robust revenue-grade meter design is based on Aclara’s cutting edge technology that provides high accuracy and reliability.
