How to read Sprint 350 energy meter

If you are in Sri Lanka and you have got your self a net meter from CEB (Solar power), then its very likely that you have a Sprint 350 energy meter. Before we proceed any further, I like to say, this is the least intuitive electronic device I’ve ever seen.

Here are the steps to read the meter.

1. Wait till the display is automatically switched on (don’t press any buttons)

2. After display reset,

1st reading    – [tue 14.09.16]   – Current date

2nd reading  – [tm 07.30.55]    – Current time

3rd reading   – [U  000753.5 kWh  ->]   – Current import energy reading

4th reading   – [U 0002.32 kVA   ->]   – Up to now, max import demand seen for this month (in kVA)

5th reading   – [U d04.09.16   ->]         – Date when the above max import demand occurred

6th reading  – [U tm13.10.00  ->]         – Time when the above max import demand occurred

7th reading  – [U 000725.2 kWh  ->]   – Imported energy reading for the previous month (before meter reset)

8th reading – [U 0002.73 kVA  ->]       – Max imported demand for previous month

9th reading   – [U d28.08.16   ->]         – Date when the above max import demand occurred (previous month)

10th reading  – [U tm04.23.00  ->]         – Time when the above max import demand occurred (previous month)

from 11th reading to 18th, same format follows for exported (generated) energy. Eg. 15th reading (same as 7th) will give you the Exported energy reading for the previous month.
