3.1.7 Prepayment charge function.
Hexcell DDSY1088 single phase split type repayment STS meter owns the measuring function of forward and reverse direction active electricity energy, has impulse light and impulse terminals output. DDSY1088 meter can detect the real-time usage condition.
Separately record the balance and total electricity quantity, Check current total electricity quantity with STS standard testing command (refer to 3.2).When balance electricity down to 0,the relay automatically switch off, and won’t automatically connecting until new electricity quantity recharged.
DDSY1088 can measure reverse power in the same way of measuring forward power and the energy can be accumulated in total active energy and active energy of each settlement month. It also has impulse LED and output terminal to detect the status of meter.
Meter will record balance and accumulated kWh respectively. To inquiry the accumulated kWh, users just need to input the STS standard testing token. When the balance is 0, meter will automatically trip. And only after recharge the meter, the relay will automatically back on.
3.2 Recharging Function
The MCU is preloaded with 50 kWh. If customers buy the token from POS, input the 20 digits STS standard encrypted token on the CIU, the meter will automatically recharge the relevant kWh, and on meter LCD display “ACCEPT”.
When the inputted kWh and the balance in the meter is more than 999999.99kWh, the meter will automatically reject recharge. But this token can be reused when the balance is less than the maximum energy. 
Meter will automatically verify if the TOKEN has been used or not. Meter will automatically verify the TOKEN time and recode the last 50 times used TOKEN. If the lastest inputted TOKEN time is earlier than the previous 50 times TOKEN, meter will REJECT this token. In this case pls consult the TOKEN vending point.
3.3 Tampering Alarm Function
Under the condition of cover opening and current reverse, meter will alarm. The alarm won’t disappear even the tampering is finished when opening meter cover and terminal cover. This status can only be removed by TAMPER TOKEN. On Repair Column, Token means only after input token can clear the icon. Repair means after the tamper even ended, the icon will disappear.

3.12Data record Function
Meter can record the charging and tampering information, please use the PC software to read the data by optical head.
3.13Prepayment operation instruction
The Power Sales Management System will produce a 20 digits code (generated based on user’s information and purchase amount). After the user input this code via the meter’s keypad, meter will decrypt the code. After passing the encryption authentification, current purchase amount will be written into meter’s memory and added to the energy balance and stored; When abnormal consumption happens, the abnormal consumption amount will be deducted from the purchase amount and the new energy balance will be stored in memory; When the user is consuming power, the meter will deduct the energy balance gradually according to corresponding conditions. When the power-off condition is met, meter will cut off power supply and when power supply condition is met, meter will connect to user load automatically.
1)Open an Account
Opening an account is necessary after the key system of meter is changed and user information registration is completed. Opening an account can give user a number and appointed ID in order to correspond one meter with one user. At the same time, initial purchasing power, the key and other parameters can also be written into meter.
2)Purchase Power
When the energy balance in meter is insufficient, the customer can visit the power vending office to purchase electricity. At vending office a 20 digits serial number (TOKEN) including the kWh information will be produced based on user information and purchase amount. After obtaining the 20-digits token, load it into the CIU. The CIU will increment the purchased kWh into the balance but will not loss any existing credit balance. Upon acceptance of a valid token credit the exact amount contained on the token to the appropriate register in the meterand shall increment the register by this amount.
Power purchase method:
(1)Visit the local power vending office.
(2)Provide your meter ID to the operator.
(3)Inform the operator the amount you want to buy and pay the bill.
(4)Obtain a 20-digits token printed on your receipt.
3)Load power
User will input the 20-digits serial number via meter’s keypad. After passing key authentification, meter will accept purchase amount and adjust the energy balance and cumulative purchase amount and then save the new energy balance in EEPROM. At the same time power amount loaded this time will also be displayed on LCD. 
(1)Key in the 20-digits token via keypad.
(2)Confirm the numbers on LCD.
(3)If token is wrongly input, please use backspace to modify.
(4)After inputting all the 20 digits, push Enter to confirm the token input.
(5)If token is correctly input, LCD will display “accept” and the power amount purchased.
If token is wrongly input, LCD will display “reject”. User can press the “Sequence-Backspace” button to delete the wrong digit.

5.4 Cautions on Installation
1)Before wiring, please carefully check the connection diagram on meter case and confirm the phase line, and neutral line (ground wire) consistent with connection diagram. It is better to use copper wire and copper contact to connect to meter.
2)If the cable is old, operator shall cut the end of cable to ensure the new exposed wire end is about 15mm long to be used to connect; if cable diameter is between 3mm and 6.5mm, directly connect to inside of terminal and make sure it secured; if cable diameter is less than 3mm, then it is necessary to use a suitable size copper or aluminum bushing to clamp cable end so as to avoid loose contact of connection resulting in terminal burnout.
3)During wire-connection, firstly loosen each screw on each terminal, then insert In-phase line into end of connection aperture and the in-neutral line into end of connection aperture, fully tighten screws of terminals. Similarly insert Out-phase line into end of connection aperture. Tighten screws of terminals fully and make them secured.
4)Power on energy meter to test the working condition, if energy meter works normally, record readings of meter. Otherwise, please carefully test condition of installation and connection and working voltage.
5)Be gentle with the energy meter so as to avoid dropping and collision during whole installation processes.
