Saving money is good!
OMRON and STMicroelectronis (a global semiconductor leader) are working together for a smart electronic meter that will provide a more accurate and reliable measurements for most major gas providers. To unveil in November of 2012.
These meters will be much smaller, less expensive, and more efficient than the conventional equipment out there. Resulting in a cost savings for the utility companies and end users too!
These sensors are state of the art Micro-Elector-Mechanical Systems with a thermal flow transducer and high-performance analog front-end IC.
The best part of this new technology…measurements of gas quantities will be more accurate and allow for a savings of energy. As the old traditional gas measures do not automatically account for temperature, pressure variations, and multiple gas composition measurements.
This new technology does compensate for this, thus saving energy by having laser focused measurements with no waste…that equals to huge gas savings when added up across the board.
