I am looking for a Meter with a Main breaker only with copper buss to feed an interior panel.
I checked the Siemens 'Speedfax'.
All Siemens meter mains are aluminum buss.
SQ D catalog looked the same,
Eaton catalog did not specify the buss type, but the one you linked to is a copper buss trailer panel.
Ill look into those more.

We are pretty religious about using copper bussed panels where possible.

A few years ago we noticed we weren't getting Siemens copper bussed 200A metermains anymore. I was told from our Siemens supply house they don't make them anymore.

The only metermain I've found in our area that is copper bussed still is Eaton CH. So I tried one once for an overhead service, never again. Poor design on how the wiring enters the metering compartment and lands on the lugs. I don't like chasing 4/0 AL through meter jaws to get to the lugs at the bottom....

Siemens=No
Sq D=No
Eaton CH=Yes
GE=?
