. These forms are the traditional 2 ½-and 2-element solution for metering 4-wire
circuits in the United States. However, 2 ½- and 2-element meters in 4-wire circuits do
not produce a Blondel solution. Without a Blondel solution, systematic errors may
occur when a voltage imbalance exists.

1.1.2.1 Fitzall™ Operation


The GE Fitzall™ feature, combined with wide voltage range operation, allows users to meter
a wide variety of service types with only 2 basic meter types. A basic form 9S (or 10A, 48A)
meter is used for transformer rated applications and form 16S (or 16A) is used for self
contained applications. By using the MeterMate™ software to convert the meter for a
different service type and providing an appropriately wired socket, any service can be
metered. See Fitzall™ instruction book GEI-52590 for details.
