In June 2020, new versions of the EN-IEC product standards for electricity meters, the EN-IEC 62052-11, EN-IEC 62053-21, -22, -23, and -24, were published.

These second editions cancel and replace the first editions published in 2003, including their 2016 amendments. This edition constitutes a technical revision. In the 2020 versions, it is mentioned that the IEC technical committee TC13 recommends that the 2020 versions’ content be adopted for implementation nationally at least two years from the date of publication .

National legalization bodies, utilities, and manufacturers are expected to adapt to these new product standards starting in 2022.

In the 2020 version of the standards, new features for AC and DC electricity meters are added, new tests are defined, and existing test procedures/methods are updated. Our experts can inform you about the details.

EN-IEC products standards new tests procedures

KEMA Labs adapted to the new 2020 standards by implementing new test procedures and adapting existing test procedures/methods. Next to this also the product safety standard EN-IEC 62052-31 is implemented with state-of-the-art facilities for switch endurance testing at different power factors and switch short circuit testing up to 10.000 A, single fault testing, and safety assessment. For the clock and timing accuracy tests the laboratory has access to a GPS time synchronization network with PPS, IRIG-B, and PTP. KEMA Labs offers type tests of energy meters to all different versions of the EN-IEC products standards and is notified body for the Measuring Instrument Directive (MID 2014/32/EU). On request, special national tests or tests per client instructions can be added. We are constantly developing our laboratories and skills to cope with the future. Are you ready?
