Texas – High-precision smart e-metering solution for accurate power measurement (ADS131E08)Jul 18 2012 - New Technologies and Energy Harvesting [More New Technologies and Energy Harvesting Articles]
Texas Instruments (TI) has introduced a new line of analog front ends (AFEs) for power monitoring and control of smart e-meters. The ADS131E08 family is available with 8, 6 or 4 channels and in 16- or 24-bit resolution. The devices offer high integration and performance, along with the industry’s lowest power consumption per channel and widest upgrade/downgrade path.
When combined with the AMC1100 isolation amplifier, quad-channel ISO7241C digital isolator and 32-bit C2000 TMS320F2812 high-performance microcontroller (MCU), the new ADS131E08 family provides a three-phase class 1.0 and 0.5 smart e-metering solution that minimizes power consumption while providing high linearity for accurate power measurement. The solution also delivers the high-voltage isolation required to meet industry standards for power and communications in high-end industrial meters and Smart Grid infrastructure. A free sample kit of the smart metering solution is available. Also, the ADS131E08EVM-PDK demonstration kit is available to speed hardware evaluation and system development, says the company.More news from Texas Instruments
