A smart meter is an electronic device that measures the consumption of electrical power, water, and natural gas etc. and communicates this information with control systems in real time. Connected metering devices benefit the utility companies by providing real-time data so that they could analyze the behavior of household energy consumption to optimize energy distribution and balance loads on the power grids. Meanwhile, consumers could have greater control of their energy usage to save money, such as electricity, natural gas and water. Whether in internal or external formats with ISM bands or cellular 2G to 4G, Unictron supports a variety of antenna solutions. Apart from antennas, ultrasonic transducers are also available for ultrasonic natural gas and water meters.
