Gas, Water and Heat Flow Meters

The gas/water/heat metering market is facing many challenges in today’s rapidly evolving world. Government regulations, competitive forces, technology innovations and end customer expectations are fueling unprecedented changes in this market. Having a “smart” partner who can help you stay current and allow you to react quickly will be the difference between success and failure. With today’s meter designs, innovation rests in many areas – some driven by extending battery life, improving flow measurement, or adding wireless connectivity for the smart grid. Microchip understands the design challenges facing meter designers, whether it’s increasing meter accuracy and reliability while lowering total system cost or the addition of RF technologies and networking software. Our solutions are used in millions of meters worldwide; Microchip wants to be a partner in your success, not just a vendor.
