The magnetic flotation system used on the previous models was not as successful as hoped, so it was abandoned and a regular jewel and pivot bearing was used. Otherwise, the overall design of the meter was similar to the Model G. This meter used a round cast-iron base with an internal partition that sat between the stator and the U-shaped brake magnet to protect the latter from demagnetization. Part of the shield was formed with projections that sat just below the ends of the brake magnet, and two large screws mounted in these projections (beneath the disk) acted as the full-load adjustment. The cover was cast from non-ferrous metal and fastened to the base with three sealable screws. The terminal box was located on the bottom with three terminals - two for the current coil and a third for the voltage coil tap. Since this meter was made in only one current capacity - 10 amperes - a three-dial register was used. No picture of this model yet.
