Water Meter Controllers
Carlon offers an array of controllers for their industrial water meters, such as car-loggers, batch controls, timer controls, pump control, a signal splitter, and remote counter.
Carlon’s Universal Remote Model A31UR provides a remote readout of the pulse contacts coming from an electric contacting water meter. This model has a NEMA-4 box, and a UV protected LCD that may be exposed to the sun. A complete system consists of an electric contacting water meter remotely connected using a low voltage two-conductor wire sent from the Carlon meter to the Universal Remote. The A31UR display reveals the measuring value; gallons, cubic feet or liters/cubic meters, and the units/pulse.
Other controllers include:
The versatile CAR-LOGGER is designed to receive an input signal from a Carlon meter to provide a "real time" flow rate signal as well as the total volume of water passing through the meter. The CAR-LOGGER also provides two independent pulse output signals for inputs to programmable controllers and remote counters, if required for the application.
Also, if desired, the CAR-LOGGER can be ordered with two analog current outputs using industry standard current loop transmitters. These output signals are directly proportional to the flow rate, for data logging and dosing pump conditions.
The Carlon Batch Controller provides a way for automatically measuring the amount of water desired for a batch, and an actuating signal to activate the batch processing equipment. The Batch Control eliminates the need for manual measurement and assures thorough mixing each time in the desired amount. Batch Control is initiated by the operator pressing the Batch "Start" button which activates a valve and any other batch process equipment such as a chemical pump. The Batch Controller includes an Input Counter for counting the impulses received from a JSJ Electric Contacting Meter, which measures the amount of water added to the batch. When the desired amount of water is reached for the batch, the controller automatically turns the pump off and loses the valve completing the batch cycle. The size of the batch can be easily varied as needed by programming the counter.
PBC6300 Batch and Timer Control
The PBC6300 Programmable Batch & Timer Control provides a way for automatically measuring the amount of water needed for a batch and turns on three timers. Carlon's Batch & Timer Control eliminates the need for manual measurement and assures proper mixing each time for the desired blended amount. Pushing the start button starts both the batch processing equipment and timers. The timers, independently programmed, begin when the batch starts and shut off at the programmed time. The PBC6300 also has an integrated totalizer that keeps track of the total incoming pulse signals from the water meter which can provide a valuable record on water volume use if required.
Programmable Pump Control
The Carlon Programmable Pump Control is suitable for all types of applications where the feeding of chemicals in proportion to water use is desired. The Pump Control includes both an input counter for counting the impulses received from the JSJ Electric Contacting Meter and a Timer(s) for operating the Chemical Feed Pump/Valve for the desired length of time. Both are adjustable as required for the application.
A typical system includes the JSJ Series Electric Contacting Meter and a Programmable Pump Control electrically connected to a chemical feed pump, solenoid valve or water softener.
Carlon Programmable Timer Controls have broad applications. Timers control the length of the signal needed to operate chemical feed pumps, valves or other equipment long enough to perform the operation required for the water treatment system. Typical Timer systems use the pulse signal from a JSJ Series Electric Contacting Meter, to activate the Timer(s) in the control cabinet. The Timer(s) sends a timed output signal (adjustable) to a chemical feed pump, solenoid valve or water softener as determined for the application.
PP101 Signal Splitter
The Carlon Meter Signal Splitter provides a way to have separate, independent circuits signaled from the output pulse signal of a dry contact meter (Carlon JSJ Series, for example) or a reed switch or "hall effect" meter. Sometimes called a "splitter," the unit provides two isolated output signals, which carry independent voltage from two different sources. Sources can be a controller, a remote counter, or some other receiving device.
The unique circuitry of the PP101 is designed to identify any extreme power supply signal value from the dry contact switch on the meter. Excessive power signals can permanently damage reed or hall effect switches. A wiring terminal strip is provided to offer a variety of components used with the Power Pack 101.
