RITTER Data Acquisition Software »RIGAMO« for Microsoft Windows is used for data acquisition of gas volume and flow rate from up to 18 RITTER Gas Meters. Supports graphical and tabular display of measurement data and export of stored data to Microsoft Excel®.
Data Acquisition even during failure of mains power supply
Export of stored data to Microsoft Excel® spreadsheet
Please note: »RIGAMO« can only started once at a time on a single PC.
No support of bi-directional recognition of the measuring drum rotation with Pulse Generator V4.01
The Signal Input Module »SIM« required for data acquisition is not approved for use in ex-proof areas!
Measurement of Gas Volume
Data acquisition of gas volume and flow rate from up to 18 RITTER Gas Meters
Measurement of gas temperature for recalculation to norm temperature (normalization) Please note: With the current version of the Signal Interface Module »SIM« only a single temperature probe can be connected to one »SIM« unit.
