Advanced metrology solution focuses on smart grid energy measurement
Available as an ASMgrid Platform technology option, the Accent metrology solution implements a high precision multi-channel analog front-end for current and voltage sensing, providing scalability to address single-phase or poly-phase products. Energy measurement calculations are performed by Accent’s software-programmable, proprietary 32-bit DSP processor and enables rapid customizations to meet a vendor’s unique product needs.
The Accent metrology solution also integrates additional hardware and software capabilities required by manufacturers to detect tampering and prevent energy theft. The solution has been designed to meet relevant ANSI and IEC standards and the reference silicon has undergone rigorous testing, which included operating on-chip RF systems (2.4 GHz 802.15.4, 900 MHz 802.15.4g) in parallel. This has been done to guarantee correct operation even in the presence of noise from the wireless modules.
