When a meter stack is served by an underground service lateral, a termination compartment must be installed ahead of the metering stack. The termination compartment must be pre-approved or meet the minimum dimensions shown on Sheets 54 and 54A (Dwg. A-191000) of PPL's "Rules for Electric Meter and Service Installations".

As viewed from the front, the upper right hand terminal must contain (Class 320 Only) an “anti-inversion” insert to prevent inverted installation of the meter or installation of a lower class meter.
