Meter Testing & Certification Capabilities

End-to-end testing & certification solutions helping you verify the accuracy, performance and durability of meters and metering systems

Before a meter can be installed in the field, it must first be certified for acceptable performance. Accuracy, safety and electromagnetic compatibility considerations are tested to determine if a meter or sub-meter meets or exceeds the applicable requirements.

We help you ensure the accuracy, reliability, environmental hardiness, energy-efficiency and safety of meters for homes and businesses throughout America. Independent testing ensures that all meters are subject to the same standards and requirements, which alleviates consumer and utility concerns.

Through our end-to-end testing solutions, we evaluate your products to any condition and help you navigate growing complexities in metering compliance to bring meters from development to end use faster and more cost-effectively.
