Information

Smart meters have emerged as the most accurate tool for measuring electricity consumption and estimating electricity bills correctly, which is why these meters have become a necessity for any household. As these meters are used to measure electricity, they need to be run round the clock to help you get the highly accurate electricity consumption results.

But it is merely possible if you rely on lithium batteries to power these smart meters. If you do not get an ultracapacitor for your smart meters, you will likely face billing errors due to faulty readings, which costs you undue money month after month. With ultracapacitors, you can power your smart meters consistently. So, in case you are facing the issue of under-voltage, these ultracapacitors come to your rescue as they can measure the working situation of your entire electrical system.

 

Disadvantages of lithium batteries in the meters

Traditionally lithium batteries are used in smart meters. However, these batteries have some crucial downsides as follows:

 

● No backup power

Lithium batteries do not provide any power backup, which is its primary disadvantage. In case of a power cut, the voltage of lithium batteries gets too low to power the smart meters adequately. This is critical in today's world, where power disruptions can be frequent at times, making your smart meters prone to errors.

 

● Not accurate

Lithium batteries tend to get damaged, resulting in inaccurate readings on the electricity meters. When things happen, they cannot power the smart electricity meters correctly, which should concern every meter owner. Even when these batteries are not damaged, the slightest voltage drop makes your meters vulnerable to errors.

 

However, those issues can be solved by installing an ultracapacitor in smart meters. Whenever you face a power outage or voltage shortage, the power source will automatically switch to these ultracapacitors, helping you to power the meters perfectly. Besides, the longer lifespan of the ultracapacitor ensures stable performance in the meters.

 

BCS standard series of Beryl

For all the worries of smart meters users, Beryl has one simple solution: the BCS series of its ultracapacitors. It consists of supercapacitor energy storage, allowing a constant power provision to the smart meters. Here are all the benefits of the BCS series:

 

● Low self-discharge and lower leakage current

The Beryl capacitors have a lower self-discharge, bringing a longer shelf life and ensuring a full charge when put to use. Similarly, they also have low leakage current, increasing the security and prolonging the lifespan.

 

● Consistent performance with high reliability

People prefer the Beryl BCS series because these devices are highly consistent in their reliable performance. Once installed on the smart meters, you do not need to worry about the frequent disruptions in your meter, bringing accurate data, and finally, saving money from your pocket.

 

● Long life and free of maintenance

As these supercapacitors have a low discharge and leakage rate, both of these features result in the long life of these devices. These devices have nearly 500,000 cycle life cycles, meaning that they can be charged and discharged many times before reaching their expiry age. Besides, it lowers the maintenance cost in the long run. After all, these capacitors' long shelf life and low maintenance cost are critical for saving money in the long run.

 

● Adaptability to a wide range of temperature

The ultracapacitors can endure temperatures in a wide range., between -40 °C to +85 °C, which means they can handle almost every possible temperature condition. Usually, the working temperature of smart meters lies within this range, making them perfect for smart meters.

 

Conclusion

Beryl is the forerunner in the capacitor industry of the world as R & D development is the most important part of our business, which can be proved by the fact that 40 % of our employees are working in the R & D sector. Our products range from supercapacitors and aluminum supercapacitors to conductive polymer solid capacitors, and are widely applicated in different industries. Beryl capacitors are distinguished from others as they are leak-proof, temperature adaptable, and high voltage devices.
