Coin-operated pay meter columns are power distributors for campsites and yacht harbours with various equipment options, such as lighting, water connections and billing systems.

Depending on the setup structure of the system, the coin-operated pay meter systems with the required main or sub-distributor can be equipped with up to 18 units. PSC metering cabinets, as well as distributor cabinets and power columns have a maximum of 4 CEE sockets with corresponding fuses.

Coin-operated meters have a separately lockable flap. The sockets are chosen via push buttons and a text display. They can also display the released and remaining times. Times for each coin can be easily defined by the operator behind the lockable flap.

Functions of a pay meter column


The free socket is selected on the display using the keyboard. The coin acceptor specifies the kWh value after coins or tokens are inserted and releases the socket. The current kWh value appears in the display and is added to after each coin insertion (max. 99 coins). To check, the kWh value can be read off from the display and topped up as required.



The total consumption can be read off directly from the built-in electronic meter. The meters are calibrated, officially accredited and bear a test mark. This means that they can be used for billing purposes.



Behind a sealed flap in the area of the coin cassette, the kWh specification per coin or token can be modified by the operator at any time using the keyboard and display.


Additional function

The remaining values (kWh) can be deleted at any time manually by the operator or following a customised, pre-set time.
