The Laureate dual-channel up or down totalizer is a basic operating mode of the Laureate counter with the FR dual-channel signal conditioner board. Each channel (A or B) may be independently set up and scaled to count up from zero (or other value) to a preset limit, or to count down from a preset value to zero (or other limit). Countdown operation is set up by entering a negative scale factor.
The six-digit counter display is capable of displaying any value from -999,999 to 999,999 with a programmable decimal point. Scaling allows direct readout in engineering units, such as gallons or cubic feet based on counts from a turbine flowmeter, or the count of cans based on the count of six-packs. The displayed channel (A or B) is selected via a front panel pushbutton. The totals are stored in non-volatile memory so as to be retained in the absence of power.
The minimum recommended complementary option for the Laureate totalizer is the dual setpoint controller output board, which is available with either 8A relays or AC/DC solid state relays.
An optional Extended counter version provides capabilities beyond those of the Standard counter:
Rate and total simultaneously. Channel A can display total while Channel B displays rate. The selection of A or B for display is via a front panel pushbutton. This mode is ideal for flow applications.
Up/down counting. Channel A can serve as an up/down counter, where the count direction is dynamically changed by applying a signal to Channel B. For instance, Channel A can count and scale pulses from a turbine flow meter, while Channel B inputs the direction of flow. This allows total volume to be tracked in case of reversible flow.
Totalizing with external inhibit. Totalizing by Channel A can be temporarily inhibited by applying a signal to Channel B. For instance, 60 Hz AC pulses can be counted by Channel A and be scaled to display elapsed hours. A signal can be applied to Channel B to start or stop pulse counting when a process is in operation.
Custom curve linearization. Exceptionally accurate custom curve linearization is achievable, for example to linearize the low end of turbine flow meters. For setup, up to 180 data points can be input into a spreadsheet or text file by the user. The computer then calculates spline fit segments, which are downloaded into the meter via RS-232. The linearized rate can then be totalized by the Extended counter.
Arithmetic functions. The Extended counter makes arithmetic functions available, namely A+B, A-B, AxB, A/B and A/B-1. These solve many applications. For instance, A+B allows two input flows to be summed for total volume, while A-B allows outflow to be subtracted from inflow for net volume. A/B allows the mixing of ingredients in a specified ratio. By monitoring and alarming the A/B volume ratio, ingredient B can be added to A until the proper ratio is achieved.
The FR dual-channel signal conditioner accepts inputs from proximity switches with PNP or NPN output, TTL or CMOS logic, magnetic pickups, contact closures, low-level outputs from turbine flow meters down to 12 mV, and high-level AC line inputs up to 250 Vac. Jumper selections provide optimum operation for different sensor types and noise conditions. A built-in isolated 5, 10, or 24 Vdc excitation supply can power proximity switches and other sensors, and eliminate the need for an external power supply.
Designed for System Use
Optional plug-in boards for communications and control include Ethernet and other serial communication boards, dual or quad relay boards, and single or dual isolated analog output boards. Laureates may be powered from 85-264 Vac or optionally from 12-32 Vac or 10-48 Vdc. The display is available with red or green LEDs. The 1/8 DIN case meets NEMA 4X (IP65) specifications from the front when panel mounted. Any setup functions and front panel keys can be locked out for simplified usage and security. All power and signal connections are via UL / VDE / CSA rated screw clamp plugs.
