Winning Combinations to Design Faster

Home-based water meter

Accurate usage monitoring with LCD display interface

Water resources on a global scale are limited and the consumption of fresh water needs to be monitored and charged on an individual basis in state-of-the-art homes and residential buildings.

The combination of the Renesas RX113 MCU and FS1012 flow sensor provides a solution for these applications. The FS1012 ensures accurate measurements while the RX113 provides a user interface with an LCD display control to allow customers to view consumption data.

Key features:

  • Solution includes LCD control and touch interface
  • Ease of use – the RX113 integrates several features such as RTC and USB for maintenance
  • MEMS solid-state flow sensor provides accurate measurements
