PM5560 display Pulse counts and Total Usage on the front display and the webpage

Hi, All,

If we are using PM5560 to do the water meter pulse count, can either the meter front display or the web page shows the number of pulses? Our customer would like to use PM5560 meters for monitoring Energy and Water usage, the basic requirements is the total pulses and calculated water usage (Pulse weight x total no. of pulses) not only be displayed in PME, but also on the remote meter display and the meter webpage. Could you please confirm if the meter can meet the requirements? If not, will that be in the development path?

Thanks a lot,

James

Re: PM5560 display Pulse counts and Total Usage on the front display and the webpage

Hi James,

Have you considered using "Input Metering" to meet the requirement?  Please review the user guide: http://download.schneider-electric.com/files?p_File_Id=791779033&p_File_Name=HRB1684301-02.pdf     Section labeled "Input Metering".

The information is viewable from the meters HMI.

Meter’s input metering channels count pulses received from the digital inputs assigned to that channel. The incoming pulses are used in calculating and measuring consumption data (e.g., BTU, kWh, L, kg). Each channel must have the following values configured to match the pulse data:


• Pulse Weight: the pulses per unit value.

• Unit Code: the unit of measure associated with the monitored value.

• Demand Code: for time-based values (such as kWh), this provides the associated demand units (kW) for demand calculations; for other values (such as kg), this can

   be configured to provide rate information (kg/h or kg/s).

• Mode: Whether pulse counting based on full pulses or transitions.

For example, if each complete pulse represents 125 Wh, you can configure for Wh

pulsing as follows:

• Pulse Weight = pulses/Wh = 1/125 = 0.008

• Unit Code = Wh

• Demand Code = kW (this is automatically set)

• Mode = pulse.

Please refer the user guide for more information.

With Regards,

Usha
