Advanced Metering Infrastructure Code (AMI)

Amendment to the Regulations for the Installation of Electrical wiring to accommodate the
Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) components “Additional Field Requirements for
AMI”

In addition to Kahramaa Installations regulations, the below shall be considered for Advanced Metering
Infrastructure system (AMI); additional Drawing named “Advanced Metering Infrastructure Layout” shall
become a part of the Building Permit document submission for Kahramaa approval.

A. Multi meter case for MSB connection / Multi meter case for LV panel

1) In each / typical floors, provide Two embedded 32 mm PVC conduit (2 nos. x 32 mm) between each
group Electricity meters of (max 12 meters) and the corresponding group of Water meters (Between both
groups) with pulling rope and the following embedded junction boxes (provide access panels on false
ceiling, if required).

a. In electricity metering room near to the Main Distribution Board, install 2 Nos. 150mm x 150mm x
100mm size end junction box to connect with the 2 No.s 32 mm PVC conduits.

b. In water metering room near corresponding Water meter cabinet, install 2 Nos. 150mm x150mm
x 100mm size end junction box to connect with the 2 No.s 32 mm PVC conduits .
ADVANCED METERING INFRASTRUCTURE CODE (AMI)

c. Install 32 mm conduit to connect the above 2 Nos. end Junction Boxes at water metering room
(in item b above) to corresponding water meters cabinets Up to 3 cabinets maximum, each of
the 2 nos. end junction boxes should be connected to each water meter cabinet (when cabinet
does not exist stop at group of meters with 150x150x100 mm end Junction box) and all conduits
should have a pulling rope (every cabinet suppose to have 4 meters only).

d. For every conduit; Install pulling junction boxes in every 10-15mtr distance / corner portions.

2) Provide 1 x 32 mm embedded heavy-duty PVC conduit with 5c. 2.5mm2 cables (R, Y, B, N & E) for
‘interconnecting power supply’ between the main water meter chamber and nearest ground floor electrical
room / LV room and Provide another 1 x 32 mm embedded heavy-duty PVC conduit between the main
water meter chamber and The MDF with pulling rope with the following embedded junction boxes:

(Proper waterproofing is required for the conduits in main water meter chamber and building retaining
wall)

a. Install IP65, 150mm x 150mm x 100mm size end junction box near to the Main Distribution Board
/ LV panel in ground floor electrical room with a 32 mm PVC conduit connecting with pulling rope
at Main LV panel and Install IP65, 150mm x 150mm x 100mm size end junction box near to the
‘MDF’.

b. In main water meter chamber, install 2 nos. IP65, 100mm x 100mm x 50mm size end junction box
on high level and ensure the connection to the 2 nos. 32 mm heavy duty conduits mentioned in
point 2 above.

c. Install pulling chamber / junction box in every 20-25mtr distance / corner portions.

3) In main LV room a 500mm (Height) x 500mm (Width) provision required on the wall with 100mm x
100mm x 50mm size surface mount type junction box for each data concentrator (AMI Device);. Following
additional requirements are to be incorporated.

a. Install embedded conduit with 5c. 2.5mm2 cables (R, Y, B, N & E) from the LV panel-metering
compartment to the data concentrator junction box on the wall. Each data concentrator requires
a 3ph+N supply from the respective main LV panels, each LV panel will have a Data Concentrator.

b. Distance between the data concentrator junction boxes shall be minimum 300mm, if two or more
main LV panels are in the main LV room.

4) Provide embedded 38mm PVC conduit for between the MDF panel and main LV rooms with pulling
rope and the following embedded junction boxes (provide access panels on false ceiling, if required).

a. Install 150mm x 150mm x 100mm size end junction box 30 cm from MDF.

b. Install 150mm x 150mm x 100mm size end junction box in main LV room, near to data concentrator.

c. In case of more than one concentrator in main LV room (More than one Main LV panel), install
100mm x 100mm x 50mm size Junction box near to each data concentrator and install and
connect 25 mm conduit between these 100mm x 100mm x 50mm size Junction boxes and the
100mm x 100mm x 50mm size end junction box in main LV room.

d. Install embedded pulling junction boxes in every 10-15mtr distance / corner portions.

B. Service Cabinet / Electric room connection / Single meter case for MSB / Single meter
case for LV panel connection

1) Provide 2 Nos. embedded 25mm PVC conduit between the electrical and water metering cabinets and
fix at allocated opening in both cabinets of respective premises (use pipe/cable entrance only in case of
no allocated opening) with pulling rope and install IP65, 100mm x 100mm x 50mm size embedded pulling

ADVANCED METERING INFRASTRUCTURE CODE (AMI)


junction boxes in every 20mtr distance / corner portions.

2) Provide 1 Nos. embedded 25mm PVC conduit between Landlord water meter and Landlord Electric
meter locations with pulling rope and install IP65, 100mm x 100mm x 50mm size embedded pulling
junction boxes in every 20mtr distance / corner portions.

Note: In all cases; Distant from relevant eclectic meter should not exceeds 90 meters.
