The most commonly used electric meter today

In every home that uses electricity, a small box can be found on one of the walls. This box is a meter box. Once a month, the electricity company looks at the meter numbers on the meter, checks the electricity used in the meter house, and then charges the homeowner the full cost. This type of meter is called an electric meter. Before the advent of electricity, there was a gas meter.

The gas meter includes a moisture meter; There are two types of dry meters. A wet meter is called a wet meter because it contains only half the water. Usually, dry mites are not used. The gas meter consists of two gas-cooled chambers, each equipped with an air furnace.

When one furnace is thinner, the other is designed to swell. The valve in the chamber with the first inflated air chamber is open while the valve in the second chamber is closed. Then gas enters the first chamber. When the gas lamp is turned on, it absorbs gas from the furnace of the first chamber, and the gas in the chamber pushes the furnace.

The furnace then swells, the second chamber swells, and the first gas is pumped into the chamber. Then the valve in the first chamber closes, and the valve in the second chamber opens, and gas is introduced. Due to the pressure of the gas, the gas in the furnace enters the lamp, causing the furnace to swell and the furnace to inflate again.

Then, as mentioned, the lamp takes turns to get gas from each furnace. The valves are connected to the dog gear wheels by a lever on the dial surface connected to the dog gear wheels, just as the dog gear wheels rotate. By looking at the lever on the dial surface, you can determine the amount of gas used in the home. Electric meters contain electromagnets.

An electric current passes through a telegraph cable wrapped around these magnets. When an electric current passes through it, the magnetic field from the magnet rotates a small shaft. The metal cylinder connected to the shaft also rotates. The shaft and the cylinder are connected to the arm on the dial surface.

The more electricity there is the faster these devices spin. By looking at the rotation of the arm on the dial surface, you can see how much electricity is passing through. The lever indicates the current use (kW) on the dial surface. The rods on the other dial surfaces, which are constantly rotated by the gear teeth, are connected to the tens of kilowatts. The prisons are listed in order.
