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 62052-41 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 13: Electrical energy
measurement and control. It is an International Standard.
The text of this International Standard is based on the following documents:
Draft Report on voting
13/1869/FDIS 13/1873/RVD

Full information on the voting for its approval can be found in the report on voting indicated in

the above table.

ELECTRICITY METERING EQUIPMENT –
GENERAL REQUIREMENTS, TESTS AND TEST CONDITIONS –
Part 41: Energy registration methods and requirements
for multi-energy and multi-rate meters
1 Scope

This part of IEC 62052 applies only to newly manufactured multi-energy and/or multi-rate static

meters and it applies to their type tests only.

NOTE 1 For other general requirements, such as electrical, mechanical, safety, marking, dependability, etc., see

the relevant parts of IEC 62052 or IEC 62059. For accuracy requirements and other requirements specific to class

indices, see the relevant parts of IEC 62053.
This document applies to electricity metering equipment designed to:

• measure and control electrical energy on networks with voltage up to 1 000 V AC, or

1 500 V DC;

NOTE 2 For AC electricity meters, the voltage mentioned above is the line-to-neutral voltage derived from nominal

voltages. See IEC 62052-31:2015, Table 7.

NOTE 3 For meters designed for operation with LPITs, only the metering unit is considered a low voltage device. If

the LPITs are rated for voltages exceeding 1 000 V AC, or 1 500 V DC, the combination of the metering unit and

LPITs is not a low voltage device.

• have all functional elements, including add-on modules, enclosed in, or forming a single

meter case with exception of indicating displays;
• operate with integrated displays;
• operate with detached indicating displays, or without an indicating display;
• be installed in a specified matching socket or rack;

• optionally, provide additional functions other than those for measurement of electrical

energy.

Meters designed for operation with Low Power Instrument Transformers (LPITs as defined in

the IEC 61869 series) may be tested for compliance with this document and the relevant

IEC 62053 series documents only if such meters and their LPITs are tested together as directly

connected meters.

NOTE 4 Modern electricity meters typically contain additional functions such as measurement of voltage magnitude,

current magnitude, power, frequency, power factor, etc.; measurement of power quality parameters; load control

functions; delivery, time, test, accounting, recording functions; data communication interfaces and associated data

security functions. The relevant standards for these functions may apply in addition to the requirements of this

document. However, the requirements for such functions are outside the scope of this document.
