Standard/Digital Meter

Standard or digital meters all have one row of numbers. Your meter may have 3, 4 or 5 digits, but you can read all of them in the same way.

To read your meter:

  1. Write down the numbers from left to right, including any zeros 

  2. Ignore any numbers after the comma or decimal point. If your meter does not have a decimal point, read all numbers, including any zeros.

    Eg. The readings for these meters are 5812 and 15812.
