Electronic Interface works with turbine flow meters.

Press Release Summary:

PC-programmable F5140 K-Factor Scaler acts as field-adjustable frequency divider, converting pulsed frequency output from turbine flow meter to scaled, square wave output. It provides interface for PLC, RTU, PC DAQ cards, or any frequency counter or data input device. With optional software, unit also converts turbine meter output into frequency for other units of measurement. Interface includes on-board microcontroller and internal or external pull-up resistor.

Electronic Interface for Turbine Flow Meters

(Racine, WI June 2005) The Flo-tech K-Factor Scaler is a field adjustable "frequency divider" that converts low level, pulsed frequency output from a turbine flow meter to a scaled, square wave output signal. It provides an interface with PLC, RTU, PC data acquisition cards or virtually any frequency counter or data input device. The F5140 K-Factor Scaler is one of the new electronic interfaces available from the company for use with its line of flow measurement and transmission devices.

The K-Factor Scaler is used as a preamplifier to amplify the pulse output from turbine flow meters such as the Ultima F6202-F (SAE) and F6222-F (BSPP) for transmission to Flo-tech F6600 (AC) and F6650 (DC) Series Digital Displays. With optional software it can also convert turbine meter output into a different frequency for other units of measurement such as liters, barrels, cubic feet, etc.

The unit includes an on board microcontroller, internal or external pull-up resistor and compact ABS enclosure with mounting flanges. It is field adjustable and PC programmable with optional software.

Detailed specifications and operating parameters are available from Flo-tech, a leading supplier of hydraulic flow meters and diagnostic test equipment. For more information call Patrick Decker at 800-433-5263 or visit the Flo-tech Web site at www.flo-tech.com
