CID-3 Customer Interface Device

CID-3 Customer Interface Device

The CID-3 Customer Interface Device is a low cost 3-channel, fused KYZ termination device which supplements the electric meters’ KYZ pulse initiators. It provides three sets of KY connector terminals, one for connection to the three meters’ KY output terminals and the other for the utility customer's energy control system input terminals.

The CID-3’s mounting configurations incorporates four knockouts for ½” electrical conduit which can be used in a wide range of connection schemes to the electric meter’s enclosure.

The CID-3’s input and output circuit’s terminal strips are “EURO” type. When the stripped wire has been correctly installed in the terminals “slot”, no conductive parts are exposed on the surface of the terminal strip, thus allowing the user maximum protection from accidental electrical shock. Each K lead of the CID-3 is individually fused. A built-in “snubber” network is installed for transient suppression.

The CID-3 features a watertight Noryl enclosure and offers excellent electrical insulation. A beaded-gasket lid ensures that the circuit inside remains dry and clean.
