Electric Meters and Gauges
An electric meter is a device that measures the amount of electricity being used and is expressed using kilowatt hours, or kWh. Meters are generally located outside of a residence or business. An electric gauge is similar, yet it resembles a small compass and can be mounted in different positions. These gauges are easy to install. An electric regulator, or voltage regulator, is a device that helps keep a stable voltage level. Different designs can accomodate AC or DC voltages.
