Product design

Product Line:
EZM and MP Metering

Product Material



The Square D manufactured EZM metering (with a few exceptions) and MP Meter-Pak Meter Centers are UL Listed as NEMA 1/3R enclosures.
Outdoor enclosures are fabricated with Galvanized Sheet Steal and coated with Gray Baked-On Power Coat Epoxy. All current carrying conductors are fabricated of tin plated conductor grade aluminum of copper bus bars and/or connectors. Square D does not offer multi-metering equipment in a NEMA 4X Stainless Steel enclosure, and meter equipment suppliers do not offer NEMA 4X watt-hour meters. Over the past 35 years or so of building MP and EZM metering equipment, we have meter centers installed along ever coast line and inter-coastal water way in this and other countries. As long as these enclosures do not come in direct contact with salt spray, or salt water, the life expectancy in these service areas is quite good.
