Smart meters are electronic hardware devices measuring the amount of consumed utility (electricity, gas, water, heating) including the time of day. Smart meters enabled with wireless IoT connectivity allow utilities and providers to collect energy information automatically, and remotely, providing them with accurate consumption data efficiently, without manual work.
Smart metering enables utility providers to reduce energy distribution costs, increase production efficiency, and accelerate cash flow. Their customers receive accurate and timely consumption data and help reduce their energy spending. As a result, the cities can restrain greenhouse gas emissions.
The next generation metering infrastructure generates insights and applications these into real-time operations leading to e.g., faster outage recovery, improved reliability, reduced costs, and demand-response.
Silicon Labs offers microcontrollers (MCU) and wireless connectivity solutions with market-leading energy efficiency and RF sensitivity. You get access to the broadest selection of hardware, cutting-edge wireless software and development tools, and the most robust security, including the world's first SoCs with the PSA Level 3 certification. With Silicon Labs, you can develop the most secure devices for smart metering, and enable up to 10 years of a lifetime for coin cell battery-powered devices. Over the past eight years, we have saved ~ 30 million working hours yearly by enabling wireless smart metering applications.
Reliability over long distances, extended battery life and accuracy, as well as voltage protection for equipment make our solutions for electricity meters among the best in the business.
Effective smart water metering requires wireless connectivity over large distances, low power requirements, and fully tested and compliant metering software.
Automated smart gas meters typically rely on battery power, and our wireless MCUs have been designed with complete communications and low-power processing in mind.
Improving metering systems for HVAC, particularly heat allocation, is an important element in reducing energy consumption and lowering utility costs. Our MCUs are optimized across active, sleep, and wake-up time modes.
