The measurement of electrical power has become a key part of improvement projects in energy performance, but measurements can be used for different purposes:

  • Monitoring consumption and analysing distributions
  • Monitoring load levels and monitoring the installation
  • Billing and invoicing

Applications requiring the installation of meters dedicated to invoicing purposes in Europe must comply with the MID directive.

The MID (Measuring Instrument Directive) is a European directive dating back to March 31, 2004 (2004/22/EC).

It applies to devices and systems with a measuring function, such as water, gas, electrical and heat meters and weighing instruments used in commercial transactions.

The objective of the MID is to ensure a high level of reliability and metrological assurance so that any involved party can trust the measurement readings.

Find out more about the MID directive and the solution developed by SOCOMEC in our technical note.
