Energy metering ICs for next-generation smart meter systems

11-10-2018 | Analog Devices | Semiconductors

The Analog Devices ADE9xxx energy metering ICs is perfect for satisfying the demands of next-generation smart metering applications. The ICs provide highly accurate measurements of apparent energy (kVA), active energy (kWh), reactive energy (kVAR), rms, and power quality, suitable for matching the needs of next-generation smart metering, industrial instruments, single-phase and polyphase revenue meters, and energy-monitoring applications.

The company's energy metering IC portfolio includes the efficient ADE9000, ADE9078, and ADE9153A devices and associated evaluation tools. The ADE9000 and ADE9078 AFEs provide complete power monitoring abilities over a broad dynamic range, combining seven high-performance ADCs, a high-end reference, and a flexible DSP into a single device. The ADE9153A ICs combine three ADCs and mSure technology, using a meter to automatically calibrate current and voltage channels with no need for a reference meter.

The energy metering ICs are supported by various evaluation tools that allow developers to test and evaluate functions and performance of the devices. The ADI EVAL-ADE9000EBZ evaluation board works in conjunction with the controller board for the EVAL-SDP-CB1Z system demonstration platform and the ADE9000 evaluation software, while the ADI EVAL-ADE9078EBZ evaluation board can work in a standalone mode or in conjunction with the EVAL-SDP-CB1Z platform to approximate a three-phase meter implementation.
