The meter used to receive the IEC 60044-8 standard packets consists of the buffer board, a data acquisition card, and a Visual Basic graphical user interface (GUI). A graphical representation of the meter is shown below.
The buffer board is a NxtPhase debug board consisting of a Motorola 56303 DSP. The data acquisition card is a National Instruments DAQ. A picture of the Visual Basic GUI is shown below. The picture gives an example of the 3 phase time and frequency representation of the voltages received.
