The new Meter-Master Model 80 Encoder Interface Unit from F.S. Brainard attaches to an encoder register and provides pulse, 4-20 mA, and AMR outputs. The unit is attached both to the 3-wire encoder register output and, if needed, to a touchpad. It optimizes digital and analog data accuracy by getting its information directly from the register. One Model 80 can provide up to two separate 4-20 mA outputs, a pulse output, and the current meter reading to a touchpad or touchcoupler when requested to do so by an AMR technology.

Measurement unit converter

Turbine flow meters have a unique k-factor, or ratio of input pulses per unit of flow. The Blancett K-Factor Scaler provides a low cost method of converting the turbine output into a different unit of measure. The scaler converts a low level frequency output into a scaled square wave output signal. This adjustable frequency divider converts or scales the turbine meter output into desired units of measurement and is recognized by almost any data collection device. The signal is more immune to electrical noise and capable of transmission over longer distances than a raw turbine meter output.
