English term or phrase: revenue-grade AC meter
Adding an AC data input source: The auxiliary data terminals to the right of the gateway cable connection may be used when connecting the RS-485 output from the inverter or an external revenue-grade AC meter.

Il s'agit d'une installation de panneaux solaires. C'est surtout "revenue-grade" qui me pose probleme.
Merci d'avance.

neutral  Tony M: I think in principle you have the right idea, but I'm just a little bit concerned that the '-grade' may imply that it is of such a quality as to be capable of being 'homologué' — but might not actually be! / Love it, does the word exist?

  -> I agree - then what about "compteur homologable"
