ION and PM meter expected lifespan

Hi

 

Does anybody have and expected lifespan in years of Power Meters from installation, for example ION7650, ION7350, PM700 and PM800 series ?

 

Looking at some life cycle replacement works for a client and want to give them the correct figures for the devices


Thanks

Re: ION and PM meter expected lifespan

Hi @Rich_Lannaghan ,

 

The ION7650 and PM800 meters were designed for a 10 years expected life when installed and operated under the recommended environmental conditions. A MTBF calculation for both offers will indicate a even better average performance, but again depends on several factors.

As mentioned by Charles, the ION7300, PM700 and PM800 are obsolete parts and won't offer updated features and have a limited capacity for repairs or fixes, depending on the customer need, a replacement for a current offer might provide several benefits.

 

Is there any specific information you need?

Regards,

Fabricio

Recommend contacting technical support for more official response.

Note the ION7300 series, PM700 series and PM800 seres are obsolete at this point.

Re: ION and PM meter expected lifespan

Thanks, i really need an answer this week, from experience that won't happen with tech support.

 

Guess the client will just have to keep hold of their 20 ION7650 and 100 PM800's for the foreseeable future rather than replace them with ION9000 and PM8240's

Thanks for the reply @Charles_Murison sent me a PM but quoted different figures, is there nothing published around MTBF and lifespan ?
