Featuring 8 digits of bright, .55",
alpha-numeric display, the pulse input version of the KEPtrol R/T
can accept up to 20,000 pulses per second. The analog input version
accepts inputs, such as 4 to 20mA or 1 to 5V. It uses a highly
linear integrator (V to F converter) to generate 0 to 10 kHz digital
pulses. The standard KEPtrol R/T has two separate, 8 digit, floating
decimal, “K” factors to convert the inputs to meaningful total
and rate data. An optional 16 point K-factor can linearize flow from
The user, with the push of a button, can toggle
back and forth to view the total of the batch, the rate of flow and
the grand total count. Two control outputs can be assigned
independently by the user to activate at preset batch total, rate or
grand total for .1 to 9.9 seconds or until reset.
A scaled pulse output is also provided by an
open collector driver. Since the output frequency is user selectable
at 10, 200, 2K or 20K Hz, the unit can transmit the total data to
remote electro-mechanical or electronic totalizers as well as
computers, programmable controllers or other monitor equipment.
An optional analog output allows the user to
select low and high settings to control strip chart recorders or
other peripherals. Up to 15 units can be connected to optional RS232
or RS422 communications port to set control points or access data.
With RS422M it is possible to communicate with up to 256 units on a
single serial link. This option is also compatible with Opto 22’s
