Companies looking to develop new metering designs for smart meter roll outs need solutions that are accurate, durable, cost effective and easy to implement. Sentec's current sensor – at the heart of over 16 million smart meters worldwide – is all of these things.

Sentec's technology gives electricity meter owners and producers an opportunity to produce a superior design more rapidly and at a lower cost across a full range of metering products.
  • Patents – granted international patent protection
  • Accuracy – meets the most stringent ANSI and IEC class 0.2% accuracy requirements
  • High current – ideally suited to higher-current applications; up to 320A in service today
  • Stability – long-term calibration accuracy; ~zero temperature coefficient
  • Linearity – easy and quick calibration; class-leading accuracy well beyond standards
  • Air core – no permeable magnetic core to saturate or magnetise 
  • Novel structure – provides total immunity from DC magnetic tampering
  • Full isolation – suitable for 2, 3 or 4-wire services
  • Low cost – sensor is formed in the tracks of a standard PCB over a small board area 
  • Streamlined supply chain – can be fabricated by any good quality PCB vendor
  • Integration – works directly with many vendors’ metrology chips and SOCs
