Pulse Input Rate/Totalizer

March 21, 2013
The PD6830 ProtEx-RTP Pulse Input Rate/Totalizer displays local or remote flow information.

The SafeTouch through-glass buttons allow operation without removing the cover. Flowmeter k-factor units are automatically converted to the desired display units. The pulse input accepts flow transmitter signals including mV input from a magnetic flowmeter, as well as high-frequency signals. The PD6830 includes backlighting and two open collector outputs. The meter has FM, ATEX, CSA, IECEx, and CE approvals and is housed in a cast aluminum NEMA 4X enclosure. The PD6830 features an upper display that is 0.7 inches high and shows five digits of flow rate. The lower display is 0.4 inches high and shows a combination of flow rate, total, grand total, or a tag with seven alphanumeric characters. The meter is readable from angles up to +/- 40 degrees. Unit conversions are automatically performed. The meter is capable of data logging up to 1,024 records in real time. Each record contains date, time, rate, total, grand total and log number. Inputs can be discerned with pulse widths as small as 5 µs. Two open collector outputs are individually programmable for rate, total or grand total alarms; rate, total, or grand total pulse outputs; retransmission of pulse inputs; quadrature paired output; or constant timed pulse output. Power options for the PD6830 include battery, DC with battery backup, DC only, output-loop, or output loop with battery backup. Operating temperatures range from -40° to 75° C.
