Smart meters are key to cutting domestic energy consumption. Dr Thomas Dittrich of Tadiran Batteries explains how his production line plays a vital role in the value chain, offering durability and cost efficiency through sophisticated technology.
Smart meters make it possible to cut energy consumption by as much as 10-15%, making a huge contribution towards energy efficiency and climate protection. To guarantee a reliable, low-maintenance life-cycle of up to 20 years requires high-quality, reliable small parts, including batteries.
Tadiran batteries are sealed by means of a hermetic glass-to-metal seal. The battery’s suitability can be verified within a reasonable space of time using various tests. Test results are supported by practical experience with batteries that have been in use for more than 20 years.
Batteries for back-up and RTC
Smart electricity meters require a real-time clock (RTC) that continues to run in the event of a power cut – a function that requires a back-up battery.
