We’re all familiar with the electricity meter hidden away in the garage, basement, or other out-of-view location. We may even have looked at it once or twice to phone an up-to-date reading to the utility company in place of an estimate. Thanks to technology, a quiet revolution is taking place inside this innocuous looking meter. From a traditional electromechanical meters toth a Solid State eletronic energy meters, a Solid State eletronic energy meters use highly integrated componets, such as the ADE516x,1 ADE556x,2 ADE716x,3 ADE756x,4 and ADE77xx5 families of energy-measurement ICs. Analog Devices has been a key player in the transition, shipping more than 225 million energy measurement ICs to date. According to IMS Research, 75% of all energy meters shipped in 2007 were electronic rather than electromechanical. To read more, click here!
