Utility Mertering

Utility Meters

Home and industry usage utility meters such as electricity meters, water meters, gas meters, heat meters and meter reading systems are major application of primary lithium batteries. Because metering power requirements vary from pulses of a few microamps for RTC and memory backup functions to a few amps such as for data transmission over mobile telecommunication networks, the right battery selection is a key technical choice for your metering needs. Primary Batteries have very good behavior at various outdoor temperatures and environments with low self discharge and good voltage response. Thus, they are very suitable for long term usage like 10 or 15 years of service life as main power of long term utility meters.
