The intended use of your new meter

To be able to carry out the work, we need to know precisely for which housing unit or parts of the building each meter is intended.

Also read our brochure.

A few examples:

  • single-phase meter, 40 ampere  intended for apartment 1st storey, left
  • single-phase meter, 40 ampere  intended for apartment 2nd storey, number 28
  • tri-phase meter, 15 ampere  intended for communal areas
  • tri-phase meter, 63 ampere  intended for lift


Single-phase (or mono-phase) 40 ampere can also be expressed as follows: 2 x 40 A.
For tri-phase 20 ampere this is then 3 x 20 A.

‘Left’ and ‘right’ are determined by standing directly in front of the entrance to the building facing towards the building.

If you are in any doubt it is best to consult your electrician or gas fitter.

What happens once we know the intended use of each meter?

  • allocating an EAN code

    As soon as we know the intended use of each meter, we can give each one a unique EAN code.



    With this code you can request a contract with the energy supplier of your choice.
  • a label for each meter

    When the meters are installed, a label is attached to each one. This label gives the EAN code and the intended use of the meter concerned which you have given to us.

    We will not open the meters if this coupling has not been made properly.
