How to Design Power Efficient
Smart Gas and Water Utility Meters
Learn how to increase the power within the transmitter budget while not increasing its total power budget
Designing a smart water or gas utility meter can present a vexing low-power challenge for embedded control systems requiring RF connectivity. Since a single service call from a technician often exceeds the entire cost of the smart meter, battery life must exceed 20 years.
This white paper considers three design requirements for one particular smart meter redesign:
- Allocate more power budget to transmitter functions to increase range
- Maintain existing battery size and capacity
- Maintain existing battery service life of 20 years
