I am due to get Bulb smart meters fitted by siemens on the 15th January.
I have just look at my meters under my stairs, I have some concerns on how big the meters are and how they are mounted. I have look everywher on bulb and I have failed to find out what the manufacture and model numbers are of the current meters being fitted by Bulb/Siemens are.
I’d like to have information on their physical dimensions and fitment, in order that I can prep my location for the fitting.
I believe the gas meters location to be OK as it is a rather bulky dumb meter fitted in 2000.
Its the electricity meter which is my main concern as it is squeezed onto the old 1930’s wooden panel between a modern MK electrics dis cabinet and the old 1930’s main fuse box, the space is tight. Ideally I want the new smart electricity meter to drop into the space vacated by the old dumb one. The dumb ones dimensions are 12cm x 8cm x 3.5cm (W x H x D), see uploaded photo.
As an electronics engineer I would like to get the physical information and fixing point templates for the meters so that I can check that its all going to work out OK, or if I have to do supplementary work in order to mitgate any installation problems on the day.
PS (Rant): Bulb it would be nice if you actually made this type of information available and not treat all your customers to the llowest common denominator, so of us do have brains you know and we know how to use them. (Rant Over)
