Does anyone know of a supplier that has a metal clad consumer unit compete with internal electricity meter?

Looks for something off the shelf.
Thanks in advance

Never seen one, but numerous suppliers offer metal clad consumer units, and others offer DIN rail mounted electricity meters that can be mounted therein.

Depending on the application though, a separate meter might be better as this can be locked or sealed against tampering, unlike a consumer unit.

Wylex do a range of CUs intended for domestic PV systems with a meter built in - http://www.electrium.co.uk/med..._WYLEXPhotoVoltaic.pdf - if that's more like what you want.

What sort of thing is it for? e.g. what size circuit do you need to meter? Does the meter need to be protected from tampering? If it's a tenant submetering from a landlord kind of thing then perhaps a clifton/mantle arrangement might be more conventional. If it's commercial/industrial needing separate sub-metering for lighting and power for management rather than revenue purposes then lots of type B TPN distribution boards come with metering options, or just a a DIN rail mounted modular meter in smaller cases.

If the meters are located in the CU, the landlord will lose revenue....

Thanks Andy,

That's perfect, I'm supplying a small business with electricity.
If they don't take the mick, I won't charge them, but like to know just in case.

Thanks
