Ultracapacitors and Supercapaitors in automatic meter reading (AMR) Applications

Automatic meter reading, or AMR, is the technology of automatically collecting status and consumption for electric, gas or water meters. The data collected is then transferred to a central location via wireless network. This technology eliminates the providers the expense of periodic trips to each physical location to read a meter, and also allows them to provide real time billing and usage information to end users. Since the data is transmitted via a wireless network, burst of energy is needed during the transmission cycle as well and backup energy needed in case of a power outage. Therefore most of the AMR manufacturers have looked at incorporating an ultracapacitor solution within each device to satisfy this demand. Tecate Group with its broad range of ultracapacitor products offer a variety of standard and custom cells and modules with extended temperature range which are currently used within this industry.

Whole-system Persistence with Non-volatile Memories

Ultracapacitors, in conjunction with NVRAM, provide reliable back-up power in servers, eliminating the need for batteries, and the inherent environmental, monitoring and ongoing maintenance issues that come with them. Tecate Group offers a host of ultra capacitor cells and modules to provide this critical back-up power. With the broadest range of ultra capacitor solutions in the industry, Tecate offers both standard and custom devices to meet various form factor and interconnect challenges.
