The spectrum of applications primarily covers the transmission of instantaneous values and provides the basis for the display and/or recording of flow rates in pipes. The current output is also used for various control and monitoring tasks.

  • Designed as snap-on housing for mounting rail
  • 2-channel control options for compound meter: infrared reflex pulse transmitter (571), two-wire proximity switch to DIN 19234 (NAMUR) (572, 573) self-optimizing level, electronic counter module, mechanical compact energy meter RAY
  • Front-panel programming buttons for setting menu controlled functions
  • Freely programmable input pulse values
  • Filtered output signal 0/4 mA ... 20 mA and 0/2 V ... 10 V
  • 1 floating output (make contact, open collector)
  • Electrically isolated measuring and supply circuits
  • Selftest, self-monitoring
  • LC display for flow rate (m3/h or l/s); min./max. flow rate; meter reading; menu guidance
  • M-Bus interface (option)
  • Function

    The microprocessor-controlled LCD universal signal converter converts the pulses from the volume measuring components in the water meters (main meters and submeters) to a dc current proportional to the flow rate (digital-analogue converter). The current amplitude is proportional to the instantaneous flow rate.
    The converter is also used for converting high-resolution pulses to decadic pulses (e.g. m3). The signal converter 520.11 is programmed via touch controls on the front panel.
