What is Utilities Smart Meter Testing & Repair?
Utilities Smart Meter Testing & Repair refers to a set of processes aimed at ensuring that smart meters used to measure utilities customer energy consumption are working correctly. "Smart" meters are network-connected devices that measure energy consumption for utilities customers and allow utilities team members to monitor the incoming consumption data remotely (rather than having a field technician travel to the meter location and check it manually). Prior to field installation, smart meters are tested in the company shops to ensure that they are calibrated correctly - they must pass a series of test before they are deployed. When a smart meter fails in the field, it is brought into a central shop for testing and repair. Field technicians, engineers and, in some cases, company vendors, coordinate to complete these processes.
