Sensirion Wins Smart Energy Innovation Award 2017
Sensirion has won the Smart Metering Innovation Award at the 8th European Smart Energy and Utility Summit, which took place in London on February 2 and 3, 2017. The jury recognized Sensirion for revolutionizing and moving forward the industry of gas metering with its innovative gas meter modules, based on the microthermal technology. In Europe, the installed base of gas meters with Sensirion’s technology is rapidly growing and is currently at nearly 1 million pieces.
The microthermal gas meter modules from Sensirion enable the design of very compact MID compliant gas meters for easy installation in the field, with no moving parts and therefore noiseless operation. They monitor gas consumption reliably in real-time at ultra-low power consumption, feature dust resistance and excellent long-term stability. Furthermore, Sensirion’s microthermal technology features self-diagnosis capabilities and lays the basis for future implementation of energy content monitoring of natural gas.
In 2016, Sensirion's microthermal sensor modules achieved an evaluation certification in accordance with the harmonized standard EN 14236 and the normative document OIML R 137 for natural gas types H and L. The evaluation certificate significantly accelerates and simplifies the process of obtaining the MID approval for a gas meter product using a sensor module as core metrological unit.
