ICs meet needs of next-generation smart metering
Energy metering integrated circuits (ICs) from Analog Devices are now being shipped by Mouser Electronics. The ADE9xxx energy metering ICs deliver highly accurate measurements of apparent energy (kVA), active energy (kWh), reactive energy (kVAR), rms, and power quality for meeting the needs of next-generation smart metering, industrial instruments, single-phase and polyphase revenue meters, and energy-monitoring applications.
This energy metering IC portfolio comprises the ADE9000, ADE9078, and ADE9153A devices and associated evaluation tools.
The ADE9000 and ADE9078 analogue front ends (AFEs) offer complete power monitoring capabilities over a broad dynamic range, integrating seven high-performance analogue-to-digital converters (ADCs), a high-end reference, and a flexible digital signal processing core (DSP) into a single device.
The ADE9153A ICs integrate three ADCs and mSure technology, using a meter to automatically calibrate current and voltage channels without a reference meter.
Several evaluation tools are available that enable 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 operate in a standalone mode or in conjunction with the EVAL-SDP-CB1Z platform to approximate a three-phase meter implementation.
Mouser also offers the EV-ADE9000SHIELDZ and EV-ADE9153ASHIELDZ Arduino-compatible shields, which enable prototyping and evaluation of power and energy measurement systems with the ADE9000 and ADE9153A AFEs, respectively.
