Heat Cost Allocator

Heat Cost Allocator


Heat cost allocators are used to measure the amount of heat energy used by an individual consumer or business that is tied to a central heating system serving multiple customers. They operate by measuring the surface temperature of the radiator and the ambient air temperature in the room in order to calculate the amount of heat energy delivered to the end user. The usage data is typically transmitted to the service provider through a wireless communications link. Wireless MBUS is the most popular communications protocol for heat cost allocators. Heat cost allocator application will benefit from TI reference designs, ICs and other solution that:

  • Minimize BOM cost and energy consumption to extend battery life
  • Demonstrate industry leading RF performance and integration for wireless MBUS
