As of June 2020, updated editions of the EN-IEC electricity meter standards were released, namely EN-IEC 62052-11, EN-IEC 62053-21, -22, -23, and -24. These editions, supplanting those from 2003 and their amendments from 2016, represent significant technical updates. The IEC’s technical committee TC13 has advised that nations should implement the 2020 standard revisions within two years of their release.

From 2022, national regulatory agencies, utility companies, and manufacturers are expected to comply with these revised standards. The 2020 updates introduce additional functionalities for both AC and DC meters, establish new testing protocols, and refine existing test methods. Our specialists are available to provide comprehensive insights into these changes .

EN-IEC product standards and updated testing methods

To align with the 2020 updates, KEMA Labs has introduced novel testing protocols and revised existing methods.

Moreover, the lab now incorporates the product safety standard EN-IEC 62052-31, which features advanced equipment for testing switch endurance at various power factors, switch short circuit evaluations up to 10,000 A, single fault tests, and safety evaluations.

The lab is equipped for precise clock and timing accuracy tests using a GPS-based time synchronization network, including PPS, IRIG-B, and PTP systems. KEMA Labs conducts type tests for energy meters across all EN-IEC standard versions and is an accredited body under the Measuring Instrument Directive (MID 2014/32/EU).

Customized national tests or specific client-directed tests can also be accommodated. We are dedicated to continually advancing our laboratory capabilities and expertise to meet future demands. Are you prepared for these changes?
