Tbe electric aa't-meter installed by tbe

Westinghouse or Foit Wayne type which

A small meter mounted oo a jewel nit*
oates the dial pointers by m-ms of a
ti sin of gesra. The motor ia in circuit
with the la mps (load) and revolves at
apeed proportionate with tbe currant
being used, Thia motor is calculated st
the factory to measure an sbaolnt? known
load by atsndsrd instruments (ried by a
chronometer atop na'ch toraucb periods
ot teat and calculated to one I ill ol one
per cent in accorscy.
When the mtier ls instilled the local
company also oakes s teat for accurscy.
II only one Ump is turned on the dial
will barely move but will increase io
apeed with every addi ional lamp turned
on. A meter will tnd tai be a check;
the dial ahows st any time the act a
smountconsumed. This bung so it ia'esey
to compare the smouct pud monthly in
dollars snd cents a*g check against what
is considered exhorbitant bill*.
