The company consistently sets new standards in various markets across the globe – including in the challenging field of smart energy. At the European Utility Week 2016, Sensirion will present the certified standard products SGM70xx, as well as a next generation of microthermal gas meter modules for residential smart gas metering applications. Trade fair visitors can learn everything they need to know about Sensirion's latest products and services at Stand 3H63.
SGM70xx – the certified standard products from Sensirion
In 2016, Sensirion's SGM70xx microthermal gas meter 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 SGM70xx as core metrological unit. Sensirion’s microthermal sensor technology has been installed for years in industrial and residential gas meters; more than 500’000 gas meters are already in use in Europe. The gas meter modules enable gas consumption to be reliably monitored in real-time and feature long-term stability as well as dust resistance. Thanks to the compact design and the digital output (I2C interface), they can be integrated quickly and easily into gas meter products. The sensor modules measure volume flow at standard conditions independent of pressure and temperature and feature low power consumption. The SGM70xx certified standard products are available for gas meter sizes G1.6, G2.5, G4 and G6.

SGM60xx – the next generation of microthermal gas meter modules
With the SGM60xx, Sensirion is launching a new generation of microthermal gas meter modules for residential smart gas metering applications. The new gas meter modules are equipped with the next generation Sensirion CMOSens® flow chip, which is based on Sensirion’s experience of many years in flow sensing. The sensor modules are available for meter sizes G1.6, G2.5, G4 and G6. They are suitable for natural gas types H and L and achieve a MID accuracy level class 1.5. The SGM60xx gas meter modules feature all the proven key properties of their predecessors SGM70xx while offering significantly lower power consumption and self-diagnosis capabilities. These features give OEM manufacturers a significant competitive edge in terms of system costs and product differentiation. Start of mass production: Q1 2018.
