How do I know if my meters are obsolete or might be a security risk?

Meter lifetimes are typically about 10-15 years. By 10 years most manufactures will stop software updates for cyber security. After a meter is no longer sold repairs are generally offered for only 3 years.

Here is a list of some of the major manufactures obsolete meters that should be replaced:

Common meter upgrade example

ION 7700 to ION 9000

ION 7700 Remote Display Meter

Do you have an ION 7700 meter?

ION 7700 meters were introduced in the 1990’s and were typically used to provide power quality data at critical points in a facility.

Power Measurement stopped selling the meter in 2008. The ION 7700 meter is obsolete, there are no longer parts or repairs available from the manufacturer as of 2012.

Don’t wait for this meter to fail to plan an upgrade!

Typical 7700 meter failure modes:

  • The Remote Mounted Display (RMD) goes blank or the buttons no longer work
  • Logging on the meter will stop working
  • Communications cards lock up and do not respond
