The 2-channel pulse adaptor PadPuls M2C allows the use of up to 2 meters with pulse output as M -Bus slaves. So for example, data from a simple water or electricity meter can central be read out by M-Bus. Optionally the user can activate a tariff function, by which energy or volume pulses can be accumulated in separate meter readings for primary and secondary tariffs.
Two separated pulse inputs
Safe detection of up to 16 pulses per second at each input
Pulse value free adjustable
Unit free selectable (e.g. Wh, kWh, MWh, kJ, m3, l,...)
Counter length: 8 decimal digits
Due-date function with integrated realtime clock
Yearly due-date and 15 monthly values (optional)
M-Bus protocol according to EN13757-2- and -3
Fully parameterizable by M-Bus, including overwrite protection
Transmission rate: 300, 2400 and 9600 baud with auto baud detection
Fully operable in case of M-Bus failure by integrated battery
Dimensions W x H x D: 93 x 51 x 58 mm
Mounted on DIN rail
Two battery options available
The devices of the PadPuls M2 series adapt up to two conventional meters with pulse output to a M-Bus system. The two counter inputs are nearly free parameterizable and fit in already existing installations.
Optionally the user can activate a tariff function, by which energy or volume pulses can be accumulated in separate meter readings for primary and secondary tariffs. O one pulse signal and one changeover signal for the tariff are required, for example out of a ripple control receiver from the electricity supplier.
The integrated battery ensures that the impulse adaptor is fully operable, even if the M-Bus network fails. Additional security is provided by the periodic saving of the meter readings in nonvolatile memory.
