Meter on a chip provides microvolt
Electricity metering chip combines an eight-channel A/D convertor and high-performance MPU for computing a broad set of polyphase multifunction energy metering parameters.
Available now from Maxim Integrated Products, the MAXQ3180 is a high-accuracy low-power polyphase IC for measuring electricity activity The device incorporates an eight-channel A/D convertor and a dedicated, high-performance MAXQ microprocessor for computing a broad set of polyphase multifunction energy metering parameters
Six of the input channels are dedicated to the three-phase voltages and three currents.
With this high level integration, the MAXQ3180 makes it easy to monitor the power grid and load status.
