Rolec MID Approved MeteringJanuary 10th 2017
Here at Rolec, we have invested heavily in gaining full MID approval on all of our kWh credit and SmartCard meters.
This means that, along with our bulk buying capability, we are delighted to be able to offer fully MID approved static and touring caravan hook-ups, as well as marina pedestals, at the most competitive prices in the UK. Prices start at just £18.37!
These MID approved meters can also be supplied on their own for retro-fitting into existing hook-up units and marina pedestals - providing a very cost effective and efficient solution to updating your metering systems to MID approval.
Beware of Scaremongering
There are certain meter providers operating in the marina and caravan hook-up industries who are using scaremongering tactics - suggesting that all hook-up and marina pedestal metering has to be MID approved.
This is not the case – only meters installed after October 2016 have to be MID approved.
It has also come to our attention that a number of new companies have appeared on the market professing to sell MID approved kWh credit and SmartCard meters at competitive prices. On further investigation, we found that the meters in question were actually not MID approved and, when we requested copies of the meters’ MID approval certification, false certificates were provided.
MID approved meters can be identified by their specific markings. These consist of the CE marking, the MID marking (which is made up of the letter ‘M’ and then the year of manufacture (for example a meter manufactured in 2016 would have the following MID marking: M16)), and a four-digit code representing the notified body that approved and verified the meter.
If your meter does not display these markings, it is not MID approved. Ensure you only buy meters that have had MID approval - such as those available from us at Rolec!
