Creep test

How does it work?
The Creep test is used to check the effect of a 0 A current and nominal voltage on the energy registration of a meter.
  1. Under a 0 A load, a mechanical meter should do no more than one disk revolution in a 10 minute time window.
  2. Under the same conditions, a solid-state meter should emit no more than 1 pulse in a 10 minute time window.
  3. If these conditions are not met, the meter is considered to creep.
This test does not save data to the device memory.
