Meter socket bypass

Operation of bypass


The manual link bypass that is supplied on some 300A and 400A CSED device (indicated by a ``B`` in the catalog number suffix), consists of a threaded stud and keps nut on the line side bussing and the load side bussing, on each phase that will accept a utility company supplied jumper. With the manual bypass link jumper installed, the watt-hour meter can then be removed from the socket, while maintaining continuity of the service to the residence.
