Meter Enclosure

$190.00$280.00

The WattNode Meter Enclosure is a UL 508A Listed, NEMA 4 rated, steel enclosure for a single meter. It saves installation time and cost for installations where an enclosure is required.

The meter enclosure price does not include the price of the WattNode meter or current transformers. We recommend ordering the enclosure as an accessory when you are ordering the WattNode meter so that we know which WattNode goes with which enclosure. When the enclosure is ordered with a WattNode meter, the meter comes preinstalled.

Meter enclosures are not provided with holes or knockouts, so you will need to drill or punch any required holes.

WattNode® Meter Enclosure – Models & Pricing

Model Price Overcurrent Protection Disconnect Service Voltages
ME1-C-1
$255
Three-phase circuit breaker Yes 120 to 480 Vac
ME1-F-1
$280
Three-phase fuses No 120 to 600 Vac
ME1-N-1
$190
None No 120 to 600 Vac

The ME1-F-1 and ME1-N-1 do not contain an internal disconnect switch, so an external disconnect switch or circuit breaker is required to disconnect power. The fuse holder is not rated to be operated under load and may not be used as a means of disconnect.

Ordering

Normally the WattNode Meter Enclosure is ordered with a WattNode meter and the meter will be installed at the factory. If you need to purchase an enclosure without the meter, contact CCS to specify the model of the meter that will be installed, so that CCS builds the enclosure with the correct labeling and wiring diagram.

Custom

CCS can make custom UL 508A enclosures. Contact sales for more information.
