General Overview

RITTER Electronic Display Unit EDU 32 FP

Application

The EDU 32 FP accessory is a microcomputer-controlled counter and display apparatus. It is designed to be used in conjunction with RITTER Gas Meters, to count and display the abso-lute volume and flow-rate of Gases flowing through the RITTER Meter. It consists of a unit in a separate (desk top) casing with a two-line Plain-Text-LCD-Display, and can be used with all types of RITTER Gas Meters. The following individual alterations and functions can be programmed via the Control Buttons:

  1. Gas Meter type being used
  2. Individual measurement range (min./max. flow rates) for custom-built Gas Meters
  3. Upper and lower limiting values for Flow Rate
  4. Pulse Generator in use: Standard (200 Pulses per revolution of the measurement drum), Ex-Proof (50 Pulses/Revolution) or custom-built Models (customer-preferred number of pulses under 200 or 50 respectively)
  5. Language German/English in the Display
  6. Analog-Output: Current Output or Voltage Output
  7. Contrast adjustment of the Display
