ABSTRACT The design of a new type heat meters based on RFID technology are presented in this paper. By use of RFID technology in heat meters, the data can be exchanged between heat meters and heat supplying department by RF cards. The information can be transmitted in a non-contact way. In this way, the purpose of automatic identification can be achieved. The experimental study of the heat meters is also performed in the paper. The results show that the new type of heat meters can meet the demands of users. Compared with the ordinary heat meters, the new type of heat meters have the advantages of small in meter volume, high accuracy, no impact of water quality and good reliability.
