Open Collector Outputs Output Assignment:
Two open collector pulse outputs Out 1 and Out 2. Individually programmable for rate, total, or grand total alarms; rate, total, or grand total pulse outputs; or retransmitting of pulse inputs; constant timed pulse output; quadrature outputs (requires Out 1 and Out 2); or off. Rating:
Isolated open collector, sinking NPN 24 VDC @ 150 mA max. Alarm Output:
Assign to rate for high or low alarm trip point. Assign to total or grand total for total or grand total alarms. Alarm Deadband:
0-100% FS, user selectable Alarm Acknowledge:
Front panel ENTER button resets output and screen indication. Pulse Output (Count)
InvK-Factor = Volume/Pulse:
The InvK-Factor (Count) is programma-ble from 0.000001 to 9999999. Total and grand total pulses are generated for every total or grand total increment selected.
(e.g. InvK-Factor = 100 gal/p will generate one pulse every time the total is incremented by 100 gallons).
Rate pulses are generated as a scaled output of the input frequency with one output pulse per InvK-Factor (Count).
Rate retransmission outputs one pulse per one input pulse, up to the maximum output speed. Pulse Output Pulse Width:
Unless otherwise stated, pulses are 50% duty cycle for required frequency. A pulse rate retransmit output will generate 100 to 130 μs pulses at the falling edge of every input pulse. Pulse Output Maximum Frequency:
5 kHz, pulse width at 50% duty cycle. If the programming of the outputs would exceed 5 kHz, the meter will display
. Quadrature Output:
Output set to quadrature will lag the other pulse output by 90° (1/4 duty cycle) at output frequency. Minimum 1 Hz Timer Output:
Programmable On and Off time, repeating cycle.
Minimum On time: 0.01 second, maximum On time: 10,000 seconds.
Minimum Off time (Delay Period): 0.1 second, maximum Off time (Delay Period): 100,000 seconds.
Ýelay Period: Countdown time delay (Off) after start is pressed.
Ðn Time: Time the open collector stays on.
