Electricity metering - Payment systems - Part 31: Particular requirements - Static payment meters for active energy (classes 0,5, 1 and 2)

This part of IEC 62055 applies to newly manufactured, static watt-hour payment meters of accuracy classes 0,5, 1 and 2 for direct connection, for the measurement of alternating current electrical energy consumption of a frequency in the range 45 Hz to 65 Hz that include a supply control switch for the purpose of interruption or restoration of the electricity supply to the load in accordance with the current value of the available credit maintained in the payment meter. It does not apply to static watt-hour payment meters where the voltage across the connection terminals exceeds 1 000 V (line-to-line voltage for meters for polyphase systems). It applies to payment meters for indoor application, operating under normal climatic conditions where the payment meter is mounted as for normal service (i.e. together with a specified matching socket where applicable). Payment meters are implementations where all the main functional elements are incorporated in a single enclosure, together with any specified matching socket. There are also multi-device payment metering installations where the various main functional elements, such as the measuring element, the user interface unit, token carrier interface, and the supply control switch are implemented in more than one enclosure, involving additional interfaces. Functional requirements that apply to payment meters are also defined in this document, and include informative basic functional requirements and tests for the prepayment mode of operation in Annex A. Allowances are made for the relatively wide range of features, options, alternatives, and implementations that may be found in practice. The diverse nature and functionality of payment meters prevent the comprehensive specification of detailed test methods for all of these requirements. However, in this case, the requirements are stated in such a way that tests can then be formulated to respect and validate the specific functionality of the payment meter being tested. This document does not cover specific functionality or performance requirements for circuit protection, isolation or similar purposes that may be specified through reference to other specifications or standards. Safety requirements removed from Edition 1.0 have been replaced with references to the safety requirements now contained in IEC 62052-31:2015, the product safety standard for newly manufactured electricity meters. In-service safety testing (ISST) is not covered by IEC 62052-31:2015 and is left to national best practice usually as an extension of existing in-service testing (IST) of metrology stability. This document does not cover software requirements. This document covers type-testing requirements only. For acceptance testing, the requirements given in IEC 62058‑11:2008 and IEC 62058-31:2008 may be used. Dependability aspects are addressed in the IEC 62059 series of standards. Additional reliability, availability, maintenance and life cycle aspects are provided by IEC TC 56. This document does not cover conformity tests and system compliance tests that may be required in connection with legal or other requirements of some markets.

Messung der elektrischen Energie - Zählersysteme mit Inkassofunktion - Teil 31: Besondere Anforderungen - Elektronische Inkasso-Wirkverbrauchszähler der Genauigkeitsklassen 0,5, 1 und 2

Équipements de comptage de l'électricité - Systèmes à paiement - Partie 31: Exigences particulières - Compteurs statiques à paiement d'énergie active (classes 0,5, 1 et 2)

L'IEC 62055-31:2022 s’applique à des compteurs à paiement statiques de wattheures nouvellement fabriqués de classe de précision 0,5, 1 et 2 pour raccordement direct, pour la mesure de la consommation d’énergie électrique en courant alternatif d’une fréquence allant de 45 Hz à 65 Hz, incluant un interrupteur de commande de l’alimentation ayant pour but d'interrompre ou de rétablir la fourniture d’électricité à la charge en fonction de la valeur courante du crédit disponible maintenu dans le compteur à paiement. Elle ne s’applique pas aux compteurs à paiement statiques de wattheures dont la tension entre bornes de raccordement dépasse 1 000 V (tension entre phases pour les compteurs de systèmes polyphasés). Elle s’applique aux compteurs à paiement pour applications intérieures utilisées dans des conditions climatiques normales, là où le compteur à paiement est monté comme en service normal (c’est-à-dire avec un socle correspondant spécifié, le cas échéant). Les compteurs à paiement constituent des mises en œuvre de tous les éléments fonctionnels principaux incorporés dans une enceinte unique, avec un socle correspondant spécifié. Il existe également des installations de comptage à paiement à dispositifs multiples, dans lesquelles les divers éléments fonctionnels principaux, par exemple l’élément de mesure, l’unité d’interface utilisateur, l’interface de support de jeton et l’interrupteur de commande de l’alimentation, sont mis en œuvre dans plusieurs enceintes, ce qui implique des interfaces supplémentaires. Les exigences fonctionnelles qui s’appliquent aux compteurs à paiement sont également définies dans le présent document, et comprennent des exigences fonctionnelles informatives de base et des essais pour le mode de fonctionnement par prépaiement de l’Annexe A. Des marges sont prévues pour le domaine relativement large de caractéristiques, options, aides actives et mises en œuvre qui peuvent exister en pratique. La nature et les fonctionnalités diverses des compteurs à paiement empêchent une spécification exhaustive de méthodes d’essai détaillées pour toutes ces exigences. Dans ce cas toutefois, les exigences sont mentionnées de telle manière que des essais puissent ensuite être formulés pour respecter et valider la fonctionnalité spécifique du compteur à paiement soumis à essai. Le présent document ne traite pas de la fonctionnalité spécifique ou des exigences de performance concernant la protection des circuits, l’isolation ou des objectifs similaires qui peuvent être spécifiés en référence à d’autres spécifications ou normes. Les exigences de sécurité supprimées de l’Edition 1.0 ont été remplacées par des références aux exigences de sécurité, qui se trouvent à présent dans l’IEC 62052-31:2015, qui est la norme de sécurité produit des compteurs électriques nouvellement fabriqués. Les essais de sécurité en service (in-service safety testing – ISST) ne sont pas couverts par l’IEC 62052-31:2015 et cèdent la place aux meilleures pratiques du pays, habituellement comme extension des essais en service (in-service testing – IST) existants concernant la stabilité métrologique. Le présent document ne traite pas des exigences logicielles. Le présent document traite uniquement des exigences d’essai de type. Pour les essais d’acceptation, les exigences données dans l’IEC 62058-11:2008 et l’IEC 62058-31:2008 peuvent être utilisées. Les aspects de sûreté sont traités dans la série de normes IEC 62059. Les aspects supplémentaires relatifs à la fiabilité, la disponibilité, la maintenance et la durée de vie sont donnés par l’IEC TC 56. Le présent document ne traite pas des essais de conformité ni des essais de conformité du système qui peuvent être exigés en relation avec des exigences légales ou au

Merjenje električne energije - Plačilni sistemi - 31. del: Posebne zahteve - Statični plačilni števci za delovno energijo (razredi 0,5, 1 in 2)

Ta del standarda IEC 62055 se uporablja za novo izdelane statične plačilne števce vatnih ur razredov točnosti 0,5, 1 in 2 za neposredno povezavo za merjenje porabe električne energije izmeničnega toka s frekvenco v območju od 45 Hz do 65 Hz, ki vključujejo stikalo za krmiljenje napajanja za namene prekinitve ali ponovne vzpostavitve napajanja bremena z električno energijo v skladu s trenutno vrednostjo razpoložljivega kredita, ki se vodi v plačilnem števcu. Dokument se ne uporablja za statične plačilne števce vatnih ur, pri katerih napetost v povezovalnih priključkih presega 1000 V (medlinijska napetost za števce večfaznih sistemov).
Dokument se uporablja za plačilne števce v zaprtih prostorih, ki delujejo v normalnih klimatskih pogojih, kjer je plačilni števec nameščen za običajno uporabo (tj. skupaj z določeno ujemajočo se vtičnico, kjer je primerno).
Plačilni števci so naprave, v katerih so vsi glavni funkcionalni elementi v enem ohišju, skupaj z morebitno ujemajočo se vtičnico. Obstajajo tudi namestitve plačilnih števcev iz več naprav, pri katerih so različni glavni funkcionalni elementi, kot so merilni element, enota uporabniškega vmesnika, vmesnik nosilca žetonov in stikalo za nadzor napajanja v več kot enem ohišju, kar vključuje dodatne vmesnike.
Funkcionalne zahteve, ki veljajo za plačilne števce, so prav tako opredeljene v tem dokumentu ter v dodatku A vključujejo informativne osnovne funkcionalne zahteve in preskuse za predplačniški način delovanja. Na voljo so podatki za razmeroma širok nabor funkcij, možnosti, alternativ in izvedb, ki jih je mogoče najti v praksi. Raznolika narava in funkcionalnost plačilnih števcev preprečuje celovito specifikacijo podrobnih preskusnih metod za vse te zahteve. Vendar so v tem primeru zahteve navedene tako, da je mogoče preskuse zastaviti tako, da se upošteva in potrdi specifična funkcionalnost preskušanega plačilnega števca.
Ta dokument ne zajema posebnih funkcij ali zahtev glede zmogljivosti za zaščito tokokroga, izolacijo ali podobne namene, ki so lahko določene s sklicevanjem na druge specifikacije ali standarde. Varnostne zahteve, ki so bile odstranjene iz izdaje 1.0, so nadomeščene s sklicevanjem na varnostne zahteve, ki jih zdaj vsebuje standard IEC 62052-31:2015, standard o varnosti izdelkov za novo proizvedene števce električne energije. Preskušanje varnosti med uporabo (ISST) ni zajeto v standardu IEC 62052-31:2015 in je prepuščeno nacionalni dobri praksi, običajno kot razširitev obstoječega preskušanja meroslovne stabilnosti med uporabo (IST).
Ta dokument ne zajema zahtev glede programske opreme. Ta dokument obravnava samo zahteve za tipsko preskušanje. Za preskus sprejemljivosti se lahko uporabijo zahteve iz standardov IEC 62058-11:2008 in IEC 62058-31:2008.
Vidiki glede zagotovljivosti so obravnavani v skupini standardov IEC 62059. Dodatni vidiki glede zanesljivosti, razpoložljivosti, vzdrževanja in življenjskega cikla so navedeni v standardu IEC TC 56.
Ta dokument ne zajema preskusov skladnosti in preskusov združljivosti sistema, ki so morda potrebni v povezavi z zakonskimi ali drugimi zahtevami nekaterih trgov.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote international

co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To this end and

in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications, Technical Reports,

Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC Publication(s)”). Their

preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested in the subject dealt with

may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-governmental organizations liaising

with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely with the International Organization for

Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence between

any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of patent

rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

IEC 62055-31 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 13: Electrical energy
measurement and control. It is an International Standard.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2005. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition:
a) Title modified.

b) Removal of the contents of Annex C relating to the requirements for the supply control

switch, and added reference to IEC 62052-31:2015 which contains the relevant
requirements.

INTRODUCTION

Payment meters are used in situations where the supply of electrical energy to the load may be

interrupted or its restoration enabled under the control of the payment meter in relation to a

payment tariff agreed between the customer and the supplier. The payment meter is part of a

system that uses token carriers to pass payment information as tokens between a vending

network and the payment meters that include the meter accounting process.

The primary reason for this edition is to align it with the requirements introduced in

IEC 62052‑31:2015 metering safety standard.

The functions of a payment meter are to measure electrical energy consumed and to decrement

the available credit value in accordance with the metered consumption, and possibly in

accordance with the passing of time. This available credit value is incremented as the result of

payments made to the electricity supplier, and the meter accounting process continuously

calculates the balance of available credit held by
