Smart Measurements for Smart Decisions
Smart metres are intelligent devices for the measurement of power consumption. Contrary to mechanical power metres, they provide for the digital measurement of consumption behaviour, thus allowing for more detailed analyses. As a result, it becomes easier to detect power guzzlers in the system and replace them with energy-saving devices with flexible, sustainable tariffs. Smart metres collect consumption data and forward them – secured and encrypted – to the provider through a smart metre gateway, via the power grid or wireless connections.
The challenge in selecting components for smart metres lies in reconciling the four core requirements of security, reliability, cost efficiency, and space. We have selected our linecard manufacturers specifically on the basis of these criteria, and as your design partner, we will be happy to accompany you from product idea to market introduction and beyond.
