Energy consumption measuring device BX50 MID

Tamper-proof solution for the professional commercial determination of the energy consumption for billing purposes

IP54 type of protection
Easily installable between the consumer and the socket outlet
Professional energy consumption measuring device BX50 MID

Billable power consumption measurement made easy

The BX50 MID is probably the most compact ready-to-connect energy consumption measuring instrument with MID-compliance* on the market and therefore is the ideal solution for many craftsmen or service companies, which, for billing purposes, have to determine the amount of energy consumed at the customer's site.

For tasks of this kind it is not always practical to directly provide a largely dimensioned, MID-compliant* multiple socket outlet, especially if perhaps only one electricity consumer is used.

But the use of conventional energy cost measuring devices for home use without MID-compliance* for the commercial measurement of energy consumption for billing purposes is not permissible. The BX50 MID, which has been specifically designed for this purpose closes this gap in a cost-effective fashion:

The MID-compliant* energy consumption measuring device can be easily plugged between the electrical appliance and a normal household safety socket (230 V/AC) and does not involve any further installation effort. Only when operating the BX50 MID on construction or installation sites at a socket of the building's wiring with unknown protective measures, a BGI-608-compliant plug adapter must be used.

Reliable determination of the consumption – simple handling

When you use the BX50 MID you won't encounter any complicated combinations of input keys to be pressed or any confusing keypads. The measuring device has been designed for a quick, uncomplicated use – one menu button provides access to all display functions.

The backlighted display optionally indicates watts, volts, amperes, the active power, power factor (cos φ), kWh or frequency. Whereas the overall consumption meter cannot be tampered with due to legal specifications, the BX50 MID is additionally provided with a resettable daily consumption meter.

The BX50 MID is an ideal solution for commercial energy consumption measurements for billing purposes, however, of course it can also be used as a qualified measuring instrument at home if you wish to professionally expose costly power guzzlers.

Proper energy billing for existing equipment without meters?

You're still using electrical appliances without MID-compliant energy consumption meters the current consumption of which you have to report to insurance companies? Then the BX50 MID is the perfect solution. Just install it between the device and a fixed socket – done!

Perfectly equipped for professional requirements

With the MID compliance*of the BX50 MID tested in accordance with EN50470-1/3 it is ensured that this measuring device can be properly used for the commercial determination of the energy consumption for billing purposes.

In addition to the MID-compliance* in some EU countries, however, further requirements with regard to such measuring instruments apply, like for example in Germany. Here, the Weights and Measures Act (MessEG) additionally requires the guarantee that neither further electricity consumers are connected during the period of use nor that they can be replaced by other consumers.

Therefore the BX50 MID is the only energy consumption measuring instrument in its class on the market, which comes equipped with two integrated sealing slots. This utility model-protected solution enables users to properly safeguard the plug installation, for example by means of consecutively numbered pull-up seals, which are optionally available as accessories. The imprinted identification number of each seal is additionally represented as a universal barcode which can be easily scanned for purposes of documentation.

The ideal supplement for existing devices without MID-compliant meters

Many restoration companies, drying service providers or craftsmen are still using numerous electrical appliances that are not provided with an MID-compliant energy consumption meter. This meter, however, is mandatory for determining the electricity consumption for commercial billing purposes. For such cases we have developed the BX50 MID – easy use, proper calculation of consumptions!

* What does MID-compliant mean?

MID-compliant counters correspond to the European Measuring Instruments Directive (MID) that defines the requirements for active power meters used for billing purposes. This for example also applies to the energy consumption measuring for recharging to insurance companies or customers. The former initial factory calibration is now replaced by the MID compliance, however, the devices have to be re-calibrated after a defined period of time – for instance after 8 years in case of electronic counters in Germany.


A few practical benefits:

  • Professional measuring device for quickly and easily recording the energy requirement of electric consumers
  • MID-compliance – approved for the commercial determination of the energy consumption for billing purposes
  • Sealing slots for safeguarding the plugs in compliance with the Weights and Measures Act (MessEG)
  • Tamper-proof total consumption meter
  • Resettable daily consumption meter
  • Dust- and splash-proof ‑ type of protection IP54
  • Socket outlet with spring-loaded flap lid to provide protection against pollution when it is not used
  • Practice-optimized German industrial design – utility model-protected
