Power metering ICs offer widest dynamic range and lowest temperature coefficient

Integrated Device Technology has launched a new series of poly phase power metering ICs, which it claims offers the widest dynamic range and lowest temperature coefficient in the industry.

The 90E32 and 90E36 devices are designed to allow smart energy meter manufacturers to increase performance while consolidating functionality and lowering cost. They are fully compliant with international (IEC, ANSI) and Chinese (GB, DL) standards and can be used for both three phase four wire and three phase three wire active and reactive energy meters.

According to IDT, the units feature the industry's widest dynamic range of 5000:1 and 6000:1, as well as the lowest temperature coefficient with proprietary temperature compensation technology. The mixed signal/analogue specialist says they offer superior performance over a wide range of usage patterns and environmental conditions, increasing flexibility for meter manufacturers.

"These newest power metering products enrich IDT's award winning portfolio and address the demands of our customers, who have quickly made our single phase devices a success," said Sean Fan, vice president and general manager of IDT. "Our engineering and applications expertise helps to enable the rapid and economical deployment of smart grid technology across the globe. The wide dynamic range and low temperature coefficient specifications are exactly what smart energy meter manufacturers need for their next generation products."
